Charlotte Crosby blasts body-shamers who say her ‘lips are too big’ after Channel 5 pulled documentary about her cosmetic procedures
Charlotte Crosby has come out swinging against her critics, after she was criticised for having surgery, Botox and lip filler in a now-infamous Channel 5 documentary.
The former Geordie Shore star, 31, addressed the relentless trolling she gets because of her appearance on her Values and Vibrators podcast this week.
‘If I had a pound for every time someone told me my lips were too big, you know what, I would be s**ting money,’ she said.

Charlotte said she used to have a ‘simple’ view of online trolling and even reached the point where she felt she ‘deserved it’.
‘I put myself on TV, I’ve had these procedures done to my face, I deserve it. That’s honestly how I felt, I had so little self-worth,’ she said.
‘Everyone is always going to have an opinion on you and you really can’t change that,’ she continued.
‘Don’t have this unrealistic thought in your head that no one is going to say a bad word about me, because it’s going to happen.’

She then addressed the Channel 5 documentary Celebrities: What’s Happened to Your Face?, which highlighted the various procedures she’s had over the years.
The program aired in late April, and saw a team of surgeons critique Charlotte’s changing features and the quality of the work she’s had done.
Charlotte originally believed the episode had been pulled after her agent warned Channel 5 about the potential effects it could have on her mental health.

Charlotte was soon flooded with messages of support from fans who agreed the show was cruel and unfair.
‘I woke up in the morning after the show and my phone was flooded, everyone was talking about how it was so wrong and something had to happen,’ she said.
‘Everyone else who was caring so much. That made me change my outlook on trolling. I realised that it’s actually not okay, it’s really, really not okay.’

Charlotte expressed her gratitude for her fans, whose outraged response forced Channel 5 to apologise and pull the episode from its streaming website.
She explained the response was the catalyst for her realising herself that the trolling and negativity she’d received for so many years was wrong.
‘I had the whole of the UK championing us and it was crazy,’ she said.
‘I felt like just a human who deserved better. That was really nice, that was really really nice.’
Thankful: The star expressed her gratitude for the comforting reassurance and support from fans and those who criticised the show.
