MTV bosses have rubbished claims that the wild reality series Geordie Shore has been given the chop after nearly 12 years.
The popular reality series – which kicked off in May 2011 – generated notable names in the industry including the likes of I’m A Celebrity winner Vicky Pattison, Charlotte Crosby and Gaz Beadle.
A source shared: ‘MTV chiefs have decided the time has come to call it a day on Geordie Shore.
‘The already commissioned series, which is the show’s 24th, will go ahead with filming kicking off this weekend and the reunion will go ahead as planned later this summer.’
However, an MTV spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘Geordie Shore has not been cancelled and continues to be one of MTV’s biggest shows. We can’t wait for fans to see what we have in store next season.’
The original cast included Charlotte, Gaz, Vicky, Jay Gardner, Holly Hagan, James Tindale, Greg Lake and Sophie Kasaei.
When the programme first premiered it was met with huge backlash after viewers accused the show of glorifying binge-drinking.
Despite the controversy, the series proved to be a hit with fans and sparked several spin-offs including All Star Shore and the reunion shows
Some cast members including Vicky and Charlotte have secured major brand deals following their stint on the show.
The 35-year-old was crowned the Queen of the Jungle in 2015 and was determined to change the public’s perception of her after quitting Geordie Shore in 2014.
Charlotte, Sophie and Holly spilt the tea on the latest reunion with Metro.co.uk last year.
The reunion series had been due to start filming in 2020 for the 10-year anniversary of the show, but had to be postponed several times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
However, the unexpected delays actually ended up for the best, with Sophie explaining: ‘The aim was to do a 10 year reunion, it was supposed to be after 10 years, but obviously it’s now 12 but so be it.
‘But it probably came at a good time because Holly’s getting married Charlotte is obviously pregnant, Marnie was about to have her second child. So weirdly, it all came at a time where everything’s going on.’
Geordie Shore is available to stream on My5.
