Geordie Shore’s Chantelle Connelly sports bruises as she steps out in racy swimsuit after bum lift

She caused a stir on social media in the early hours of Monday morning, when she accused her scaffolder boyfriend Clark Crawford of physically abusing her. 

But Chantelle Connelly appeared keen to put the drama behind her on Tuesday, when she threw on a revealing swimsuit for a sunbathing session in Gran Canaria.

And as the 28-year-old Geordie Shore star made her way to her hotel’s swimming pool in her barely-there swimwear, it was hard to miss the heavy bruising on her buttocks, most likely a side effect of her recent bum lift.

The reality TV star proudly displayed her toned and tattooed physique in her floral bathing costume, which featured a high-cut waistline and daring torso cutout.

Wearing her chestnut brown tresses in a sleek ponytail with a centre-parting, she shielded her eyes from the Canary Island’s sunshine with a pair of aviator shades.

She appeared to at ease as she dipped her toes into the glistening pool, before retreating to a sun-lounger, where she thumbed through the pages of a magazine.

Her outing came just a day after she took to Facebook on Monday morning to accuse her beau Clark of physical abuse, alleging that he left her with ‘cracked ribs’, ‘knocked teeth’ and ‘bald patches’.

Chantelle, who rose to fame on Geordie Shore in 2016, published a public post showing what appeared to be a clump of her hair missing from her scalp.

She captioned the photograph: ‘Clark Crawford thanks for the baldy patch the cracked ribs , knocked 2 veneers out ect!!! Your a keeper [sic)]’ followed by an open-mouthed and confused emoji.

It is unknown whether Chantelle has reported the alleged attack to police but the post was still visible later in the day.

Clark is yet to respond to the claims on social media and reality star Chantelle has not taken action to remove them.

MailOnline has contacted Chantelle Connelly’s representatives for comment.

While it is unclear whether Clark and Chantelle are still together, Clark’s Facebook status still identifies him as ‘in a relationship’.

Chantelle was waking up in Malaga on Monday morning, where she is on holiday with TV personality Danniella Westbrook and her friend Ryan Mira.

Bizarrely, just hours after making the serious accusations, the reality star uploaded a naked photograph of herself with her friend Ryan covering her private parts.

She captioned the snap with: ‘Only my gay bestie @rymi1 could get away with doing a pic like this with me [heart emojis] love you kida [kiss emoji].’ 

It is believed that Chantelle is currently in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain, after posting on her Facebook she was heading to the holiday destination on Sunday.

The brunette beauty shot to fame on Geordie Shore in 2016, joining the show for its 12th series alongside Marty McKenna.

However, just a series later she appeared to cut ties with the show and stormed out of filming, while the cast were overseas, later hitting out at her co-stars for being ‘snakes’, after a mammoth fallout with Gaz Beadle, Chloe Ferry and Marty on camera.

Speaking to MTV, Chantelle revealed: ‘I left the show because I couldn’t stand living with two-faced people any longer.

‘I find the house very snakey. I feel like I was the only one in the house that was real. If I had something to say to someone, I’d be the first to say it to their face.

‘Everyone else in that house seemed to have a problem doing that. It was all Chinese whispers instead of approaching us.’ 

In July, Chantelle denied grievous bodily harm on 22-year-old Lauren Alexander after she became jealous about an ex-boyfriend, but was convicted by magistrates after a trial.

Unclear: It is unknown whether Chantelle has reported the alleged attack to the police or when it happened. It is also unclear if they are still in a relationship

Chairman of the Bench Leswyn McCallum ordered her to carry out a 12-month community order, 200 hours of unpaid work, pay £2,500 compensation to her victim, £620 court costs and an £85 surcharge.  

The victim suffered a cut to the mouth, which needed stitches, and fractured her wrist when she fell, the court heard.

The Chairman of the Bench said: ‘The victim suffered serious injury which required immediate and ongoing treatment as well as the continuing effect on her mental health.’ 

Connelly insisted it was a case of mistaken identity and she was nowhere near the incident.

Holiday: Just hours after the post, the reality star took to her Instagram to upload a naked photograph of herself with her 'gay bestie' Ryan Mira covering her private parts
