Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby was noticeably absent from the show's recent press call, but why?

Yesterday, our Geordie faves got together in their hometown of Newcastle to celebrate the MTV reality show turning five years old and promote its special spinoff series set to air next week, Geordie Shore: Big Birthday Battle.

Everyone was there, including returning castmates Sophie Kasaei, Jay Gardner, James Tindale and Daniel Thomas-Tuck, but Charlotte was missing. A rep for the 25-year-old has told Reveal Charlotte fell ill with a sickness bug.

The rep said: "She's been very unwell with it."

While she was resting up at home, Charlotte's co-stars headed to Mambo Wine and Dine (the restaurant run by Sophie Kasaei's dad) in South Shields. There, the gang enjoyed a few drinks, a personalised birthday cake and a catch up, before hitting the town for a big night out.

But, it seems Charlotte was missed from the celebrations! Sophie had tweeted earlier in the day: "Busy day today with my Geordie fam! Photo shoots and press and then we are out tonight!!! Will miss my best friend @Charlottegshore tho."

Charlotte not being there did mean that she got to avoid an awkward run-in with her co-star Gary Beadle, though.

She and Gaz have grown closer in recent months, but their relationship has hit a sour note following reports alleging Gary had bedded Jem Lucy, Charlotte Dawson and Olivia Walsh during filming for Ex On The Beach's new series.

Prior to Gary jetting off to Thailand, Charlotte had said she would "100 percent commit" to him, if he promises to stay loyal on the show. Following news of his antics overseas, Charlotte admitted she had been left 'embarrassed' by Gary and vowed to 'stay well away' from him.

She said: "It's something that I'm going to stay well away from and well out of. I don't want much to do with it at all."

Gary, meanwhile, hasn't confirmed or denied the Ex On The Beach rumours, but he has suggested there are "two sides to every story."

He also slammed claims he had 'cheated' on Charlotte, insisting they were never boyfriend and girlfriend. She too has said this, insisting she and Gary have been single for all the time they have been linked together.

Now, reports have revealed Gary came face-to-face with a former flame of Charlotte's during filming. He is said to have met David Hawley (he and Charlotte were spotted kissing earlier this year), Jem Lucy's ex-boyfriend.

A source told The Mirror that David revealed Charlotte had been texting him while she was pursuing things with Gary. When contacted by Reveal, Charlotte's rep refused to comment and slammed the claims as "nonsense."

Charlotte herself has taken to Twitter too regarding the reports and hinted they are not true. She warned: "Wow At things that have been wrote about me. Believe me you will all no the truth THE WHOLE truth when I'm ready."
