Marnie Simpson reveals why she WON'T be tuning in to Ex On The Beach

Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has ruled out watching Ex On The Beach's new series and it's all down to her co-star Gaz Beadle.

Yup. Marnie has said she won't be tuning in to the MTV dating show when it returns in August, as she knows the upset it would cause her pal Charlotte Crosby.

Writing in her weekly column for Star magazine, Marnie said: "It's the last thing I'd ever want to watch."

Ex On The Beach 5 cast confirmed: Gaz Beadle
4 July


Marnie added: "After everything Gaz Beadle did behind Charlotte's back on the show earlier this year... I can safely say I will not be watching. I knew the pain she was going throughout back in the UK."

Fans will know that in the months leading up to Gary heading to Thailand to film for the show, he and Charlotte had been romantically linked.

We got to see their on/off relationship pick up during Geordie Shore's Big Birthday Battle and despite a few hiccups, the pair had been trying to make a go of things in the months that followed filming for the series in January.

However, they never made their relationship exclusive and Charlotte confirmed Gary had signed up to appear on Ex On The Beach again - he had previously starred on the show's second series.

She later revealed that while Gary was away filming, she had been hospitalised with internal bleeding following an ectopic pregnancy. Charlotte had to undergo urgent surgery after tearing her fallopian tube.

Charlotte opened up about her pregnancy heartbreak in an interview with Heat magazine and although she revealed Gary had been "lovely" to her when she broke the news to him while he was away, she later realised the pair were not meant to be.

Their romance came to a halt, following reports that Gary had bedded other women during filming.

Gary initially stayed silent on the pregnancy, but later shared his side of the story in a penned column for Daily Star. He accused Charlotte of going public with the pregnancy when they had agreed to keep it private.

While he did admit to sleeping with one girl on the first night of filming, he stressed it was before he had heard of Charlotte's hospitalisation. Gary denied cheating on her, as the pair had never put a label on their relationship. They had both been single.

His column seemed to prompt Charlotte's decision to quit Geordie Shore. While telling fans she had made the "difficult decision" to walk away from the show after five years, Charlotte hit out at her ex-beau. She accused Gary of not admitting he was in the wrong when it came to the breakdown of their relationship.

Charlotte told fans he was partly to blame for her decision to quit, explaining she wanted to put some distance between the pair.

Since then, Gary had offered an olive branch to Charlotte. When she had seemed regretful over her Geordie Shore exit, Gary told her it wasn't too late for her to join the cast overseas for series thirteen.

Charlotte declined to respond.

Marnie, meanwhile, has been filming with Gary and their co-stars in different party resorts for the new series of Geordie Shore - including Ibiza, Kavos, Magaluf and Ayia Napa.
