Back in May, Charlotte reportedly revealed Gary had been "two-timing" on Lillie with her when they first began dating. While Gary insisted such claims were not true, Lillie hit out at Charlotte, saying she trusts her beau implicitly.
Now, after all the confusion, Charlotte admits her words have been misconstrued, telling Reveal exclusively: "Gary wasn't cheating."
We caught up with the reality star at the launch of her new clothing collection with In The Style, and seeming fed up with all the speculation, Charlotte explained how the love triangle between herself, Gaz and Lillie really played out.
She tells us Gary initially met Lillie while he was filming for Geordie Shore's ninth series - the same season viewers watched Charlotte and Gary rekindle their on/off romance.
Charlotte explained: "When Gary met [Lillie], he came on Geordie Shore and said that he thinks he had met someone that he liked. They weren't boyfriend and girlfriend, but he's met her and they had visited each other's families. They weren't official because he was coming back on the show.
"He met Lillie then got back with me a week later and we hooked up throughout the series. What I said was, he was seeing her then and they had introduced each other to their parents, but they weren't actually together. He wasn't cheating on her. They weren't official."
Fans of Geordie Shore, meanwhile, didn't meet Lillie until series ten. Gary invited Lillie to join him and his co-stars on a night out, and viewers watched a nervous Charlotte introduce herself to her ex-beau's new flame. Before she met Lillie, Gary had told Charlotte he met someone else, leaving her in tears.
At the time, it was reported she had said her tears were because Gary hadn't been completely honest with Charlotte about Lillie.
"[Gary and Lillie] had been together while he was still having sex with me," she had told The Sun. "None of this was explained on the show, but Gary had lied all about him and Lillie."
On seeing her comments, fashion designer and model Lillie hit back, insisting she trusts Gary implicitly.
She tweeted: "Gary and I are very happy and I trust him implicitly. We travel everywhere together and are virtually joined at the hip. I'm very happy and excited for our future. I am always prepared for these kind of stories with Gary's history and his on screen story lines. However, I'm taking no notice xx."
Charlotte has since moved on from her co-star, rekindling her romance with ex-boyfriend Mitch Jenkins, before splitting again last month. She is now dating Love Island star Max Morley.
Gary, meanwhile, is totally smitten with Lillie. So much so, he recently gushed that Lillie could be 'The One'.
"With Lille it was love at first sight," he revealed. "I knew as soon as I saw her on a plane to Greece three years ago that she was The One."
