Geordie Shore star reveals surprising cast rules as show is cancelled

This article contains sexual references from the outset and throughout

Geordie Shore cast

Abbie Holborn has revealed two strict Geordie Shore rules and, we'll be honest, we're surprised. By one of them at least.

The show that has seen the cast vomiting in the house, pooing in the corner, and Chloe Ferry fighting a tree, apparently has a strict alcohol enforcement rule. And it's NOT 'get on it 'til you vomit'.

Opening up to fans during an Instagram Q&A session, Abbie revealed that the cast's drinking is restricted.

In response to a fan asking if they're given a drinking limit on nights out, Abbie said, "yeah, all of our drinking is monitored. If not too drunk we can have some more."

She also revealed what the cast do for money when they're on the show, and that's an answer we can get behind: they have their back cards taken from them so MTV pay for everything. Cash in the attic!

When asked if the guys pay on dates (old fashioned), Abbie replied, "No, we don't have our bank cards, everything is paid for by MTV.'

When MTV announced they were making a Newcastle version of their hit American reality TV show Jersey Shore in 2011 we had no idea what was about to hit us.

Geordie Shore smashed its way onto our TV screens, leaving the nation shocked with the casts' sexual innuendos, impressive drinking habits, and the many references to Gaz's parsnip. However, after nearly twelve radgie years, the show is coming to an end after one last reunion special in the summer that will see BFFs Charlotte Crosby and Holly Hagan head back to the toon.

The sad news was confirmed to Closer by a show insider and the last series will see cast members old and new recap their "worst and best times" from the 22 seasons.

Let us reminisce about that hilarious, yet slightly tragic, press photo released ahead of series one.

Now, as the OG cast members are moving on from the show - like Gaz Beadle who now has a son and a baby girl, and Holly who's engaged - a trip down memory lane is needed to relive those classic fights, tantrums and Holly's ever-changing hair colour.

Geordie Shore's most iconic moments

Holly gives Gaz a kiss on the penis

An 18-year-old Holly Hagan literally ran into the Geordie Shore house, excited to spend her teenage years exploring what the 'adult world' was like and she really did get stuck in. It wasn't long into the first episode before Gary Beadle had got out his penis, which Holly decided she wanted to, let's say, kiss. Since then, Holly has dished the dirt on that encounter, after Gary said his penis resembled a "Sky remote control." Speaking to heat, she revealed, "It's not that big really."

Sophie's 'chlamydia' moment

After Sophie Kasaei got into a relationship with DJ Joel Corry, it wasn't long before she started to miss her beau. But when he surprised her by visiting the house, Sophie whisked Joel to the bedroom after a night out for some alone time and it seemed like Sophie was really enjoying herself. Cue one of the most iconic moments in Geordie Shore history. Sophie decided to show how much she was enjoying herself by seductively saying, "Chlamydia", in Joel's ear.

Vicky spits in Jay's face

As series one progressed, the first house romance had been ignited between Vicky Pattison and Jay Gardner, with the pair deciding to share a room from day one. It looked like things were going swimmingly, until the pair got into a huge fight and ended up calling off their short-lived romance. In the midst of the fighting, Vicky then spat her drink in Jay's face, leaving him fuming. Vicky has since called her behaviour "disgusting and unnecessary."

It seems like a long time ago but Holly actually entered the Geordie Shore house with a boyfriend called Dan. However, their relationship soon broke down and Holly wanted to dump her lover. Obviously, in true reality TV style, the cameras followed Holly as she headed to end the relationship, filming her arguing with Dan then dumping him outside a sofa shop in a retail park. Ouch.

Charlotte weeing on Gaz

Ever since Charlotte Crosby and Gary got together, they were the ultimate Geordie Shore couple. While they broke up more times than we've had Mint Wispas, they were firm fan favourites from the beginning. So after Charlotte and Gary had done the deed in Ricci Guarnaccio's nana's bed (so many questions), Charlotte farted to stop the awkwardness between the pair. Noting Gary's utter disgust, Charlotte found it all so funny that she just starting weeingu2026all over him, the bed and herself.

Vicky and Ricci get engaged

After Ricci entered the house in series two, he swept Vicky off her feet, despite her having a boyfriend at the time. However, she eventually finished with him to be with Ricci, who popped the question during the show's Chaos in Cancun series. This was much to the surprise of everyone, as their relationship was extremely fiery. The engagement was short-lived, with the pair calling it off months after, and Ricci left the show to go on Celebrity Big Brother.

Ricky proposes to Marnie

And from one Ricky to the next, can you remember when ex-TOWIE star Ricky Rayment proposed to Marnie Simpson on the show? Again, this was a huge surprise to viewers, as the pair had only been officially dating for six months. Their engagement also didn't last long, with the pair splitting three months later.

Charlotte and Marnie's fight

There's been plenty of fights over the years in the Geordie Shore house but this one takes top place. The fight between the two firecrackers broke out after Marnie stirred the pot after kissing Chloe Ferry's beau Marty McKenna. Obviously, Chloe went pure radge because she'd already 'bucked' him and then Charlotte got involved, leading to security having to pull them all apart. Charlotte then called Marnie "a big flirty slag with really long confusing hair." Savage.

Aaron tells Marnie he loves her

Marnie and Aaron Chalmers' relationship was very on and off, with the pair loving each other one minute then ripping each other's heads off the next. Can you remember when they got caught having sex in a factory's kitchen? But it seemed like it was true love for the pair, as after going back and forth, Aaron finally admitted he loved Marnie. Yet, it took him a while to get there as before he said those precious three words, he responded to Marnie admitting her love for him by responding, "I like your hair." Awkward.

When Nathan wee'd on the stairs

It shouldn't have been hilarious but it was. Nathan Henry decided he needed to have a wee and couldn't hold it in so wee'd on the stairs. And if this wasn't funny enough, Chloe and Sam Gowland then ran up the stairs not knowing what he had done and fell into his lukewarm piss. Lovely.

Chloe fighting a tree

Ever since Chloe burst onto our screens, her wild personality made her a firm fan favourite, as well as all the questionable things she does while filming. However, this has to be one of her funniest moments - when she started a fight with a tree because she believed the tree 'wanted to fight'. You simply cannot write these things.

Chloe sent home after starting on Zahida

In one of the show's more recent series, the OG cast saw around ten new faces turn up at the house, after their boss Anna wanted to employ some new workers. However, with new faces comes new drama and new girl Zahida Allen got frisky with Marty in the back of a taxi. What Zahida didn't realise was how volatile Chloe and Marty's on-off relationship was and their late night antics sent Chloe wild. She attacked Zahida, and the pair had to be pulled apart by security. Chloe was booted from the show but returned later on in the series.

Scotty T thought he was going to have the night of his life when he brought home two women for a threesome...on a waterbed. However, he instead got summoned out of his bed to speak with Gaz for a deep convo. Better luck next time Scott.

Back of the taxi orgy

When you thought you'd seen it all, you really hadn't until this moment. An orgy in the back of a taxi. TV gold. After the crew had been partying wildly in the town centre, they were all heading back home to the Geordie Shore house. Bored, and very drunk, one of the cast members suggesting having an orgy, which they all were keen on (except Chloe who was asleep at the back). Marnie and Scotty T got carried away and passionately kissed, leaving Aaron fuming and he left the house.

Chloe goes plant pot crazy

How can we forget Nathan deciding he wants a calm and peaceful bath to then be rudely awakened by a drunk Chloe raiding the bathroom with only one thing one her mind - the plants. As she goes plant pot crazy, she swings the pot around with dirt going absolutely everywhere, turning the clean bathroom into a soiled mess.

The Abbie, Chloe and Sam love triange

Abbie Holborn kept it no secret that she fancied Sam when the former Love Islander turned up as one of the new cast members. However, Chloe also had her eyes set on the hunky lad, meaning they found themselves at loggerheads. After the pair fought it out over several episodes, Sam decided to pick Chloe as they were more similar, leaving Abbie upset.

Sometimes viewers may forget sometimes is that the highs and lows on the show were all real and, in an exclusive interview with us, Sophie Kasaei revealed how the show has moved with the times, letting the cast talk about their problems in the outside world, rather than just in the house.

She said, "I know it’s a reality TV show, but we're usually only allowed to talk about what’s going on in the house. But they’ve opened the book now, and now we can talk about things that are going on outside in our lives.

"For example, if im feeling down because of trolls I'm getting on the outside, we can start to talk about that. So it’s adding that. And people love to watch our lives, so it’s adding that into it. I think that’s such a bit thing and it’s what we need."
