The antics on Geordie shore make Essex look like Downton Abbey!smile

We aren't actually like that you know......grin & sad

Am sure some people will find it v entertaining, but have come to work today and nearly everyone I've spoken to is just embarassed that someone, somewhere might actually think Geordie's are like that !

BenHer Wed 25-May-11 12:26:33

Thanks for that.I'll cancel my flight tickets now!smile

mosschops30 Wed 25-May-11 12:31:52

When is it on, i missed it.
I can imagine theyve chosen the worst geordies ever to appear on this

Hammy02 Wed 25-May-11 12:44:48

Exactly. Its not as if many people in London are like those people in The Only Way is Chelsea is it?!

Northumberlandlass Wed 25-May-11 12:51:05

I wouldn't know Hammy smile

Like I say am sure it is v entertaining, Newcastle didn't have a great reputation for class to start with !

Oh Ben - don't let me put you off....

I miss newcastle so much, it is the best city in the UK imho.
I love the architecture, the shopping, the bridges, the heritage, the beaches close by, but most of all the people.
Everyone i have taken up north with me are blown away by the friendliness of the geordies.
Cant wait to be back gor a whole weekend next month woo hoo

Im a Geordie and i think its embarrassing although their are quite a few people like this but you get that everywhere. They have just used stereotypes. I love Newcastle, i just hope it doesnt put people off coming grin

Northumberlandlass Wed 25-May-11 13:27:40

I agree Fifi !
Although not strictly a Geordie ..Northumbrian to be precise.....it was embarassing.

Just think how their poor mothers feel !

mosschops30 Wed 25-May-11 13:29:17

Where are you from northumberlandlass? (have we had this convo before when the raoul moat drama was going on?)

PureBloodMuggle Wed 25-May-11 13:30:49

Only saw a bit of it - they certainly spent a long time searching for the horriblest people possible about didn't they

Eeeeegh

fifi25 Wed 25-May-11 13:37:19

Im from where Raoul Moat carried out the shootings. Live a 5 min walk away. Im in a Co Durham postcode but a town which is in Gateshead. Still a Geordie though grin

Northumberlandlass Wed 25-May-11 13:56:19

From Hexham Moss, yes think we probably did discuss it then !
I work on the Quayside though near Millenium Bridge.

I wasn't born in Newcastle Fifi, which is why i don't count myself as a Geordie. My DS was though.....now he will be labelled for life wink

mosschops30 Wed 25-May-11 13:59:27

fifi if youre south of the tyne you are officially a southerner grin.
i was a rothbury girl, followed by morpeth then newcastle.
Live in cardiff now and miss home soooooo much

fifi25 Wed 25-May-11 14:00:12

TBH i think they probably would have been better of heading down the Bigg Market grin. They couldnt really get any worse characters

fifi25 Wed 25-May-11 14:04:09

moss - I know im closer to Sunderland really but in a die hard Geordie town with a NE postcode where the Geordies talk with a makum twang - weird grin

PureBloodMuggle Wed 25-May-11 14:51:24

Oh dear just seen the start of it on MTV. That poor disillusioned James 'best looking guy in England'. Ahh the poor pet.

Also i'm evidently not very modern as I was very shock at that jay one having his eyebrows waxed.

onedayiwillflyaway Wed 25-May-11 14:54:51

I quite liked it, entertaining but then I am a big fan of the horrendous "Jersey Shore" too on which this is based ripped off from.

I love the fights blush.

mosschops30 Wed 25-May-11 14:56:29

When and where is it on?

onedayiwillflyaway Wed 25-May-11 14:58:28

MTV Channel 126 on Sky.

Eglu Wed 25-May-11 15:00:47

I recorded it just to see what it is like. Can imagine it will be awful though.

I was visitng my Mum in April and we saw them filming on the beach at Tynemouth, so I want to watch to see if I'm in it. grin

motheroftwoboys Wed 25-May-11 15:02:49

I was born in South Shields so I am a Sand Dancer grin. Lived in Newcastle. Now live in Gateshead and can see the river (and St James Park) from my bedroom window so officially a Geordie. Everyone I am in contact with thinks the programme is dreadful and gives a terrible impression of the area. It is all over Facebook! Haven't watched it myself yet - not sure if I can bring myself to do it.

dazzlingdeborahrose Thu 26-May-11 08:03:47

Haven't watched it. Won't watch it. It's filmed next to where I work and I can't help thinking that the residents must have been delighted when they all moved in. Car crash television with talentless wannabee celebs.

Grrrrrrrrr.

Eglu Thu 26-May-11 14:31:25

Dazzling after watching it on Sky+ I can't imagine the neighbours are happy with all the noise etc. either.
