CBB winner Charlotte Crosby guilty of drink-driving for second time


Reality TV star Charlotte Crosby has had her dreams of breaking America dashed after a second drink-driving conviction.

The 25-year-old former Celebrity Big Brother winner and Geordie Shore cast member was caught driving her Range Rover in the early hours after drinking on the train home from London to Newcastle.

Two police officers witnessed her weaving down the road and, after pulling her over, a breath test showed she was over double the legal limit.

Newcastle Magistrates' Court was told that this latest indiscretion, after she was banned from driving for 18 months in 2012, means she is now unable to get a visa to travel to the USA.

Crosby, who has more than 2.7 million Twitter followers and has also made fitness DVDs, pleaded guilty to the charge after the incident on January 28.

Nick Freeman, defending, said she had decided to make the short journey from the railway station to her hotel despite having initially planned to get a taxi.

He said "she accepts that she is the author of her misfortune" and added that she was "bitterly ashamed, contrite and embarrassed".
