CHARLOTTE Crosby has revealed Scotty T was always supposed to host Just Tattoo Of Us — instead of ex-boyfriend Stephen Bear.
The 27-year-old also told the Sun’s Bizarre column that her old Geordie Shore pal is a better host than Bear, who fronted the show for its first two series.

The reality TV stars split in October last year following claims Bear had cheated on her in Faces nightclub after a rocky couple of months – leading him to be cut from Just Tattoo Of Us.
Charlotte said: “They always wanted Scott. It was going to be Scott in the very beginning in series one.
“It was meant to be Scott but he was away, so they chose Stephen.”
Scotty added: “I was always, always meant to be doing it.”

The Sun revealed the 30-year-old as Charlotte’s co-host in November 2017 shortly after he was kicked off Geordie Shore for snorting a suspicious white powder where Just Tattoo Of Us was being filmed.
However, the TV bad boy still has a huge cult following when it comes to fans and bosses hope his part in the show will be a massive hit.

Charlotte added: “Scott is a better presenter than Bear.
“A lot of people like Scott. He has a very big fanbase because he’s so bubbly, he’s so funny, so I do think in that sense this series is going to be a lot better.”
