Although EOTB might sound like one long holiday, Gaz's advice to his fellow Geordie Shore housemate makes it sound far more dramatic than just attempting to avoid your ex. He warned the current Celebrity Big Brother housemate to trust no-one.
Having appeared in the second series, Gaz knows what he's talking about when it comes to the best EOTB tactics, and warned Scott that becoming close to anyone could cause a whole load of drama and get in the way of the really important things like having your pick of everyone else's exes.
Given Scotty T's constant cheeky chappy persona and fondness for joking around with the boys, we can't quite imagine him taking on Gaz's advice to 'be ruthless and have no heart', but then again not much gets in the way of Scott and the chance to tash on...
In an interview with MTV Gaz told him: "I would say just don't get pally with too many people, because there are so many exes kicking around, it gets awkward.
"Say you're really good mates with someone, but then his fit ex comes on, then you go on a date with her, then you've got beef with him.
"Be nice to everyone, and be civil, but you've got to be ruthless in there and have no heart. You can't be friends with anyone."
Viewers have already been warned the fourth series of the sun drenched dating show will be full of unexpected twists and turns, with new star Nancy May revealing: "We'll be opening a wardrobe and your ex will be in there!"
Sounds terrifying, right? Well that hasn't put off series three EOTB stars Megan McKenna and Jordan Davies returning for a second time.
We'll be watching closely to see if Scott takes Gaz's advice when the show finally returns.
Ex On The Beach returns Tuesday 19 January at 10pm on MTV.
