Geordie Shore star Sophie Kasaei has told Reveal she thinks her cousin Marnie Simpson is "strong enough" to film Geordie Shore while in a relationship.

In the past, Geordie Shore hasn't had the best track record when it comes to the cast being in relationships. It's not exactly the easiest environment to be in while all loved-up, having no contact with the outside and complicated history with co-stars.

Still, Sophie is not worried about Marnie's romance with boyfriend Lewis Bloor next series.

Speaking exclusively to Reveal, Sophie told us that she has already spoken to Marnie about filming for Geordie Shore's next series and she's sure Marnie "knows how to deal with it."

Sophie said: "Marnie has had boyfriends on the outside before, so I think she knows how to deal with it. I've given her advice and the thing is, I don't think Lewis would ever be involved with the show and come in [the house] which is probably better.

"As soon as you get boyfriends and girlfriends in the show... look what happened to Gary [Beadle]! He brought in Lillie [Gregg], now she's f**king on Ex On The Beach. It would not be the best."

"Marnie is very in love with Lewis," Sophie claimed. "Even though they do have their ups and downs, I would say that she is probably strong enough to go in there with a boyfriend."

Sophie's comments come after fans saw Marnie toying with the decision to head back into the Geordie Shore house while on CBB. She had fallen for former TOWIE star Lewis on the Channel 5 reality show and admitted she wasn't sure whether she wanted to return to Geordie Shore.

Marnie told her housemate Renee Graziano: "I don't even know if I'd want to put myself in that situation, because even though the way I feel about Lewis, there is an ex-boyfriend on there who I have always had feelings for and just being in that environment where I'm drunk, I don't know what I'm doing... you've heard some of the crazy sh*t I've done."

Renee advised Marnie not to give up her job until she was certain things with Lewis were serious. Several months later, Marnie and Lewis are still going strong. She has confirmed she will film again for Geordie Shore and Lewis supports her decision.

During an appearance on This Morning, Marnie had said: "I don't think I would ever leave Geordie Shore. [Lewis is] totally fine with me going back and we'll make it work regardless."

Since then, Marnie and Lewis have been forced to address split rumours. Marnie confirmed that she and Lewis are still together on Loose Women.

While doing so, Marnie addressed her decision to continue with Geordie Shore and said: "I've been in there with a relationship in the past and it's tough but i got through it. And I hadn't cared about anyone like I do about Lewis."
