With news of Sophie Kasaei being axed from the show last month, rumours circulated that her younger cousin Marnie would act now as a replacement. However, MTV insist this is not the case.
Taking to Twitter earlier today (14 August), the official Geordie Shore account explained the reason behind Marnie joining the Newcastle crew and said that she wouldn't be taking anybody's place.
"Lots of Qs about new lass Marnie. Just so you know, she hasn't replaced anyone... She's a brand spanking new cast member to join your favs!" the account wrote.
Could this mean that we could see a return from Sophie at some point?
Either way, 20-year-old Marnie sounds she like is going to be very entertaining to watch in the Geordie Shore house.
Having previously been a runner-up in the Miss Newcastle competition, the sassy brunette has admitted that she is so far getting along swimmingly with the boys on the show. But the girls have proved a little more difficult to win over.
We can sense the drama already!
