Way-aye! The new Geordie Shore girl has been revealed at last. Meet 20-year-old Marnie Simpson.
Marnie is already part of the Geordie Shore family off-screen – she’s Sophie’s cousin and she even works in Sophie’s dad’s restaurant.
Now she’ll be joining Vicky, Gaz, Charlotte, James, Holly and Scott as part of on-screen Geordie Shore family. Sophie will only appear in the first few episodes.
The Geordie newbie has promised that having a Reality TV crew following her about won’t stop her from doing what she wants. Which we assume means plenty of booze, banter and bitching,
"You’ve got be real and that’s what I was always gonna be,” she tells heat. “I was always gonna be myself, if I wanted to do something the cameras wouldn’t stop us from doing it.”
Glad to hear it.
Marnie also admits to havng a crush on Ashley Cole, but she doesn’t want to be his girlfriend (thank god!),
“He’s just such a bad boy. He’s definitely not boyfriend material but he’s someone who I fancy and I think I’d have a bit of fun with,” she says of Cheryl Cole’s ex.
Geordie Shore series seven begins on MTV on 17 September - we can't wait to see Marnie in action.
