Anyone else now *seriously* excited?!

While we don't know too much about what has gone on between our Geordie faves overseas, we do know that there will be an early exit from Marty's co-star Chantelle Connelly.

Reports claimed Chantelle decided to quit the show to focus on her relationship with boyfriend Tommy, with the reality star later confirming she had left.

Chantelle explained the reasons behind her exit in an interview with MTV, after leaving Geordie Shore mid-filming, admitting she had fallen out with Marty, Chloe Ferry and Gaz Beadle.

She said: "If I had something to say to someone, I'd be the first to say it to their face. Everyone else in that house seemed to have a problem doing that. It was all Chinese whispers instead of approaching us."

"I told Marty 'I don't think you like Chloe' because he sleeps with birds behind her back all the time," said Chantelle. "She (Chloe) also told me herself that Marty didn't like her. So when she asked me what I thought, I told her then 'he doesn't like you'.

"So then Marty comes up to me and says 'It's your fault that me and Chloe aren't together'. Basically Chloe was going back to Marty and telling him that I've said this and that, which I hadn't. I just told her the truth, I didn't want her to get hurt."

Chantelle and Marty both joined during series 12 of the show.

Fans will know that Marty and Chloe have a LOT of history. When he joined the show for series 12, Marty and Chloe picked up their on/off romance, and Chloe had seemed pretty smitten with him.

So much so, that she confessed

However things between them came to a halt, when Marty ended up kissing Charlotte Crosby during Geordie Shore's Big Birthday Battle series.

Despite admitting she liked Marty, Chloe was more concerned about her broken friendship with Charlotte at the time.

She said: "Out of the girls in this house, I never thought Charlotte would do anything like that to us. I'm very upset and at the moment I don't want to speak to either of them - especially not Charlotte.

"Yeah, I like Martin, but it's nothing to do with Martin, I don't even care if I never make up with him, it's about Charlotte. She's one of my best pals, how can we move on from this? How can I trust her again?"

Sophie is believed to be replacing Charlotte on the show.

Charlotte has since left Geordie Shore, announcing her exit at the start of June.

She didn't join the gang for filming for series 13, but it's thought Sophie Kasaei will now replace her on the show. Sophie's cousin Marnie Simpson appeared to confirm her addition to the cast by sharing a Snapchat of Sophie with all the Geordie Shore girls.

Sophie had been pictured with the cast overseas, sparking speculation she is set to make a comeback, and she wasn't the only one.

Kyle Christie was also seen filming in Ayia Napa. Could he be returning too?!
