Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby's TV career in the States could be over before it's even started.

The 25-year-old has been found guilty of drink-driving for a second time.

She's been banned from driving for three years, fined £1,185 and it means she will struggle to get work in America.

Her lawyer said she was close to landing TV work in the US but "that will not now happen as she will not get a visa".

In 2012, she was caught drink-driving and banned for 18 months.

But Charlotte's not the only star to have problems getting into the US.

In 2003 Cheryl Tweedy was found guilty of assaulting a nightclub worker

Back in 2003, Cheryl - known then as Cheryl Tweedy - was found guilty of assaulting a nightclub worker.

She was sentenced to do 120 hours of unpaid community service and ordered to pay her victim £500 compensation.

It later got in the way a bit when she needed a visa for her job as a judge on the US version of The X Factor.

Dappy also struggled when N-Dubz were trying to crack America - and the band were setting up meetings with US producers.

It was because over his 2008 conviction. The rapper was given a four-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months and ordered to pay compensation for two battery offences which related to him spitting at two women.

And back in 2008, Amy Winehouse couldn't travel to the States to perform at the Grammys.

She was denied a visa because of her drug problems.

At the last minute the US government reversed its decision and approved the visa, but it was too late for her to make the trip.

Instead Amy performed at the Riverside Studios in London via a video link.
