Gary "Gaz" Beadle has sparked outrage with "Geordie Shore" cast for failing to turn up for filming for one week.
The 29-year-old reality star has appeared on the popular MTV show when it first aired in 2011, but after missing an entire seven days worth of filming for the new series, as he was busy playing golf, has reportedly caused a stir among his fellow cast mates who feel the lothario gets "special treatment".
Speaking about the programme's veteran - who is currently dating Emma McVey - to The Sun Online, a source said: "Some of the cast are angry that Gaz is allowed to waltz in whenever it suits him.
"Everyone else has to play by the rules so why make exceptions for him? Everyone has a busy schedule outside of the show but they have to make it work.
"Gaz is well liked among the cast but some people feel he's getting special treatment from bosses."
And when the cast, including Aaron Chalmers, Marnie Simpson and Scotty T re-joined to shoot scenes last Wednesday it is rumoured "all they could talk about" was Gaz and his absence.
Meanwhile, the dark-haired hunk's laid back approach as well as the fact he admitted he would rather "chill out and watch the carnage" than be involved in the drama on the show has sparked rumours he is thinking of quitting the longstanding reality show.
Speaking previously in response to a message, he said: "I just chill out and watch the carnage... haha it's like watching Gshore live for me," followed by a crying laughing emoji (sic).
Although fans will be devastated to see him go, the womaniser will no doubt still grace television screens as he admitted last year he would jump at the chance to do "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!".
