MTV's US reality show heads to Newcastle!
Hit US reality TV series Jersey Shore is leaving the beaches of New Jersey and Miami to head to north-east England.
MTV producers say that they want to recreate the show – which follows the 24-hour partying of a group of Italian-Americans on summer break – in Newcastle.
‘Jersey Shore is set in the summer and it is always summer in the north-east,’ says Kerry Taylor, director of television for MTV Networks UK and Ireland.
‘No one wears a coat and Geordie girls are always out in their miniskirts.
Jersey Shore follows the exploits of stars including Snookie, JWoww and Pauly D and is MTV’s most successful series. It currently attracts 8.4 million viewers.
Geordie Shore will air on MTV in the UK in late spring or early summer with ‘some perfect characters’.
