Geordie Shore filming stalled after pay row

Share article:

Filming for the new series of "Geordie Shore" has been postponed until further notice.

Bosses of the MTV show have decided to delay shooting while they sort out contracts as they are reportedly locked in a huge pay row with some of the big names - including the likes of Marnie Simpson, Chloe Ferry and Scotty T - after the stars demanded more cash following the recent departure of Gary "Gaz" Beadle.

A source told The Sun Online: "The big names in the cast are failing to agree terms such as fees for the series. With Gaz having left the show they felt there should be more money to dish out. Many of the show's biggest stars have issues with terms in their agreement with the programme makers which has taken up time, and whilst everyone has now signed for the new series, several of its key cast were refusing to agree."

The news that there's a disagreement over contracts comes just days after Marty McKenna - who has appeared on the boozy series since last year - claimed he'd been "sacked" from the show and was fuming because he found out through the grape vine rather than bosses telling him to his face.

Taking to his Twitter account last night (17.09.17), Marty said: "So I won't be going back to @mtvgeordieshore as I've been sacked according to a few people. F***** in thing is a liftin beg from @mtvex."

He later added: "Yeah mate funny how everyone else know before f****** me. (sic)"

The hunk was removed from the infamous house in May after he and his co-star Scotty T infuriated bosses with their erratic behaviour and, as a consequence, they were banned from joining the rest of the cast in Italy for the summer special.

A source said at the time: "Marty is just as bad if not worse than Scotty. He parties hard and it can get too much at times.

"He didn't fly out to Italy with the cast as producers had already made their minds up and knew he wouldn't be continuing for the rest of the series."
