By Tom Wilkinson

Reality TV star Charlotte Crosby has been charged with drink-driving.

The 25-year-old Celebrity Big Brother winner and Geordie Shore cast member, from Shiney Row near Sunderland, was arrested in Newcastle.

Northumbria Police said Crosby, who has 2.7 million Twitter followers, was charged with driving a vehicle while above the legal limit on January 28.

It's understood she was driving home from a nightclub in Newcastle when police stopped her.

She will appear at Newcastle Magistrates' Court at 10am on March 11.

In 2012, Crosby was issued with an 18-month driving ban and £250 fine after she was found to be twice the limit.

A friend told The Sun: "If she pleads, or is found, guilty, it will have serious consequences for her career, and no one is more aware of that than Charlotte is."
