Charlotte Crosby has revealed that she secretly texted beau Joshua Ritchie while she was still in a relationship with Stephen Bear.
The 28-year-old reality TV beauty told The Sun that she even considered meeting up with Josh while she and Stephen were still dating, but eventually decided against it.
Charlotte went public on her romance with Josh in February just four months after announcing her split from Stephen, and the pair were recently seen soaking up the sun on holiday together.
