Charlotte Crosby shows off fading tattoos after vowing to get rid of tributes to ex boyfriends Stephen Bear and Mitch Jenkins

And it looked as though the 27-year-old star is close to achieving the desired result as her tattoos looked a lot less prominent in pictures taken today – particularly the crossed arrows on her arm dedicated to Mitch.

Charlotte also had a fish on her wrist and a large cheetah design on her back, chosen for her by Bear on their MTV show, Just Tattoo of Us.

Keen to show off her fading inkings, Charlotte opted for a backless mini dress as she partied at an exclusive Bondi Sands soiree, held in front of the Sydney Opera House.

Always the life and soul of the party, the brunette appeared in very lively spirits as she showed off her moves during the bash – which she flew to via a private jet.

Charlotte has been embracing life as a single woman following her split from Bear and it seems her bid to start afresh begins with the removal of tattoos dedicated to her ex lovers.

In exclusive pictures revealed last week, the Celebrity Big Brother champ was seen leaving a tattoo parlour in South Shields with her wrist and the back of her arm covered with bandages.

A source told The Sun Online: “Charlotte is erasing the tattoos she had while she was with Stephen.

“Having them lasered off is like her closing a door on that chapter of her life. It’s really positive for her.

They added: “She’s having the fish design, which he gave her on Just Tattoo Of Us, removed and the awful cheetah one she hates.

“Bear gave her that tattoo because he said she cheated on her ex Ash Harrison with him. It’s vile and she wants it gone forever.

“This year is all about Charlotte and she’s determined to leave bad news Bear behind her for good!”
