Geordie Shore Big Birthday Battle: Remember Jay Gardner?

Geordie Shore is turning five years old and to celebrate, the show is throwing together our favourite Geordies from series old and new. Yup, Geordie Shore's five year special is set to air on our screens on 10 May and we'll get to see the likes of Jay, James Tindale, Sophie Kasaei, Daniel Thomas-Tuck, Ricci Guarnaccio and Kyle Christie return.

But what have they all been up to since leaving the Geordie Shore house?

Geordie Shore Big Birthday Battle: Jay Gardner
28 April


Jay? He's set his sights on a modelling career by the sounds of things!

Joined Geordie Shore: Jay first appeared on the show as an original back in 2011. He was the second person to enter the house, closely following Vicky Pattison.

Left Geordie Shore: He officially left the show following series three in Cancun, Mexico back in 2012, after getting into a relationship. He decided that he wanted to focus on his romance at the time (Jay and his ex are no longer together) and dropped the bombshell he'd be leaving on his birthday in the series finale. Although, he did make a few one off appearances in later series too.

Most known for: That fight with Vicky Pattison? Jay and Vicky, despite striking up a romance in series one, had a bit of a bust up that saw Vicky actually spit in Jay's face. Something she has since insisted she is "so ashamed" for.

Now: He is still in touch with James and considers Ricci Guarnaccio to be one of his best pals. Jay and Ricci did go into business together and took over a bar in Sunderland, Attico and Verve, for a little while. Jay also ventured into fake tan and had his own brand, Jay Tan. Nowadays, Jay is busy partying during PAs across the country and modelling for street-wear brand, Inked Attire. His rep tells us modelling is something Jay is hoping to focus on and he has a few "exciting projects" lined up for the future. Watch this space, perhaps?

Speaking about his return to the Geordie Shore house, Jay has said: "I have really, really missed the house. I'm glad to be back."
