Coast could get UK version of US TV show

WHITLEY Bay could be the location of a brand new TV show set in the North East that will hit screens in Spring.

‘Geordie Shore’ is inspired by the hit US phenomenon, Jersey Shore, and will see MTV cameras follow some of Newcastle’s finest lads and lasses, as we sneak a peek into their glamorous lives and party lifestyles.

And while show makers haven’t confirmed a precise location, the seaside town could be thrown into the spotlight given its popular night spots.

MTV said: “Newcastle is an amazing city with a culture and ethos of its own.

“So while the location and cast will of course be new, viewers will absolutely relate to their trials and tribulations and ultimately welcome them into their homes, every week.”
