Charlotte Crosby has detailed how she and partner Jake Ankers met, in her brand new BBC Three show; Charlotte in Sunderland.

The 32-year-old Geordie Shore star's latest series launched at 10.30pm last night - with Charlotte and family lapping up a premiere event with friends, family and fellow cast members of the MTV staple in Manchester's Firefly.

And speaking in the series' first episode, Charlotte details exactly how it is that she met the father of her child, Alba Jean, all of those years ago.

Sitting down in front of the camera with Jake, 33, Charlotte said: "Right so me and Jake actually first ever met in 2015 on New Year's Eve," with her partner adding: "I remember at the time, I was like 'I need to get a photo with her'."

Charlotte continued: "So we got a photo together - cause Jake was a fan - and then we obviously met again," before later adding: "It was my friend Lauren who told me about his Instagram, and said 'this boy looks nice, you know we've met him before, he's single now, he's got loads going for him' so that's why I started liking his photos."

Jake added: "I was like 'how is this girl here with all of these followers DMing me?'" before Charlotte interrupted: "You thought it was my agent. He thought my agent was messaging him," as the pair started chuckling.

"I was like 'why would my agent even do that?'"

Jake then went on to add how the relationship escalated rapidly, due to both he and Charlotte knowing what they wanted out of life. He continued: "Cause obviously we'd only been together a few months hadn't we? Getting together so quickly, everything moves so fast and you sort of know what you want out of life when you get to like 30."

Charlotte continued: "We are old enough, and experienced - I can speak on my behalf - with ex-relationships. I mean, I had a new boyfriend every single year practically, so I know exactly what I want from a relationship."

The show then goes on to show talks between Charlotte's parents Letitia and Gary of Jake moving in with their daughter. Both approving of their relationship and how much of a good match the pair are together.

Speaking to the camera, Letitia said: "Before Charlotte met Jake, she definitely had a type - not a good type. As a mam you just kind of have to shut up and let them find out for themselves, because whatever you say they're not going to listen to. But I think you know in your heart of hearts if it's the right one and now she's got the perfect person - so happy days.

"I've got a real soft spot for Jake. Like if Gary's around, Gary has to go last - Jake will be first. Gary hates this."
