Three years ago Geordie Shore hit our screens bringing with it those crazy Geordies and a whole lot of carnage. And with its new series kicking off in under three weeks, we take a look back over the years to see just how much the cast has changed.

Over three years, 13 housemates have entered the house to get mortal, tash on, and have a mint time. And despite the tears and tantrums that followed, they're now back again for more.

Seven series' of booze and banter and the cast are a far cry from their former selves when they first entered the house back in 2011. And boy do they look different!

Back to the beginning, our Geordie favourites are hardly recognisable in series one.

Back where it all started for series one, the cast barely resembled the people they are today as they posed up a storm to promote what was their new reality show.

Gone are Geordie Shore originals Sophie Kasaei, Jay Gardner and Greg Lake, gone are Holly's vibrantly coloured locks (they've gone from black, to red to blue to brunette) and gone is Gaz's look of innocence as the buck squad champ has certainly now made a name for himself and his bed hopping ways!

And since the Geordie Shore house's doors first opened, we've seen the madness invade six countries, including Mexico and Australia, there's been a Geordie Shore engagement courtesy of Ricci and Vicky's whirlwind romance - despite it's bitter end - and we've seen plenty of fallouts, including that brawl between James and Gaz in series 6.

Yes, we're struggling to keep up too!

But fast forward three years and our Geordies are ready for more, looking hot to trot ahead of the show's new series.

Now look at them, three years later and still going strong in the 'Toon'.

Revamping their looks, both Holly and Vicky are back with new looks ahead of series 8, having shaped up for their stint in the house.

Embarking on a strict health and fitness regime, Vicky has slimmed her way down, losing three stone, and is sporting a fabulously, svelte figure thanks to her efforts. While Holly has changed up her hair with a more natural look, saying goodbye to her trademark coloured locks and resorting back to her roots with her new chestnut brown 'do.

And with all the girls looking gorgeous and the guys looking chiseled, the cast are back looking better than ever with two new Geordies to add into the mix.

Geordie Shore is back with two new guys in tow!

Bound to stir things up, Geordie Shore newbies Kyle Christie and Aaron Chalmers are entering the house this series and causing mischief, promising us lots of fireworks and plenty of tashing on.

And when Reveal caught up with Gaz to talk girlfriends and co-star flings, he too spilt the beans on the new series, letting on that things get a little incestuous within the house this time round.

"You'll be surprised about who I got with – in a million years, you wouldn't expect me to get with who I got with. I woke up and was like: 'What the f*** are you doing here?"

With not long to go now... we think this new series is going to be a good'en!

Geordie Shore returns to our screens Tuesday 22 July on MTV at 10pm. See more throwback pictures of the cast online here at MTV Geordie Shore.
