Newcastle’s finest are back for a 14th series, with eight newbies moving into the house alongside returning Shore cast members Gaz, Sophie, Marnie, Chloe, Aaron, Nathan and Marty. (We hear Scotty T will be making a special appearance, so there’ll be a dose of his extra-special wit and wisdom on hand, too.)
If you want to keep up with the housemates’ shenanigans, and get to know the new recruits, you’ll need to brush up on some Shore-isms. Here’s our Geordie dictionary…
