Where is Gaz?

Gaz Beadle

After 15 seasons on the show, the Geordie Shore original Gaz Beadle has bid the series goodbye.

Gaz is about to become a dad with girlfriend Emma McVey and he wisely decided that he couldn’t remain a party animal on the show while also being a parent.

"After 15 seasons of Geordie Shore, obviously I have decided to leave. I cannot be on Geordie Shore and be a dad at the same time,” said Gaz.

"I’ve done Geordie Shore, I’ve done everything I could possibly imagine doing on Geordie Shore and now I’m just ready for that next chapter in my life and to be honest with you, I cannot wait.”

Where is the new series of Geordie Shore filming?

It wouldn’t be Geordie Shore without a few adventures in the sunshine. A lot of the series has been filmed in the Toon, but the cast will also be heading to Tenerife for a party and have also filmed north of the border in Edinburgh.
