Former Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby has opened up on her romance with Big Brother star Ash Harrison, exclusively telling Reveal they are taking things "nice and slow."

Charlotte first confirmed in October that she is dating Ash, but since then the 26-year-old has remained relatively private when it comes to their relationship.

But, speaking to us recently, Charlotte gave us an update on how things are going with her new man.

Charlotte told us: "We're getting to know each other... We've been going on a few dates so it's going great, but at the moment, we're taking it nice and slow."

"He's lovely and so good looking, isn't he?" She gushed.

Charlotte also revealed that she and Ash initially met while she was filming for E4 dating show Celebs Go Dating. The show aired in September and fans saw Charlotte strike up a romance with fish factory worker Brad, but she ended up calling things off, telling him that she needed to take some time to focus on herself for a little while.

We asked if meeting Ash had made her hold back when it came to romance on the show, but Charlotte denied that.

She explained: "We met just in between Celebs Go Dating and I didn't really think anything of it. I wouldn't say I held back on the show because of him. I'd known him for a week and that would have been pretty sad and crazy."

"Maybe if I'd known him for longer," she said. "Can you imagine? For a boy I'd known one day! I'm not like that at all."

She and Ash did stay in touch, though, and weeks later it seems the pair are giving their romance a go.

However, Charlotte has insisted she is still single, despite dating Ash, as they haven't yet put a label on their relationship.

Charlotte's BFF Sophie Kasaei, meanwhile, told Reveal she thinks Charlotte is "a lot happier" now. She addressed Charlotte's romance with Ash and explained that her bestie is hoping to do things "differently" when it comes to her love life this time round.

"Charlotte's learnt her lesson in the past of having a very public relationship. She wants to keep this one quiet, she doesn't want everybody to know."

"You know what it's like, as soon as it's in the media and the press, there's a lot of pressure," Sophie claimed. "This time, she's doing it a lot different and I think she just wants to keep it private."

Charlotte was last romantically linked to her former co-star Gaz Beadle. The pair had been on and off for the last five years, and tried to finally give their romance a go in January.

However, things ultimately didn't work out and Charlotte called it quits with Gary. She then left Geordie Shore to distance herself from her ex, telling fans quitting the show was one of the "toughest decisions" she'd had to make.
