Geordie Shore’s 10th Anniversary reunion ‘is delayed after row with stars’

Geordie Shore‘s much-anticipated 10th Anniversary reunion has reportedly been hit with more delays following a row with the show’s stars.

Sources claimed that MTV bosses are determined filming for the special will go ahead in Colombia, despite complaints from the cast about quarantine rules.

Much of Geordie Shore’s original cast including Charlotte Crosby and Sophie Kasaei were thought to be taking part in the reunion, but have reportedly been told by bosses they will not be flying to South America as planned.

Sources told The Sun that production was thrown into chaos when stars fumed about having to complete a 10-day isolation period after arriving in Colombia.

The cast were also allegedly furious to learn they’d have their phones taken away, but MTV bosses are still adamant that filming will go ahead.

A source said: ‘Some of the cast are worried it won’t go ahead but MTV bosses are determined it will go ahead.’

‘There have been issues around Colombia and the cast have been rowing with producers over quarantine stipulations and having to have their phones taken away.

‘The ten year anniversary was meant to be a massive celebration but it’s just turned into an almighty headache.’

Another TV insider told the publication that despite concerns among the cast, MTV bosses are determined the reunion will go ahead and filming has merely been postponed.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for MTV for comment.

The reports come after sources claimed last month that the cast had kicked off upon learning they’d have to quarantine for a total of 20 days.

A source has told The Sun that some of the reality stars lined up to appear in the special Colombia series even threatened to quit rather than isolate.

They said: ‘It’s caused utter chaos and the cast have all kicked off – some are threatening to quit over it.

‘The thing is, it’s added almost a month onto the job and while it will be fun to film, it means some of them have had to cancel important jobs and won’t be able to see their boyfriends and girlfriends for an extra two weeks after being away for filming. 

‘Everyone wants to make the series happen but it’s a nightmare with all the new rules and keeping everyone safe.’

The popular MTV show is said to be relocating to South America so the cast can still party amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Although it is not known when filming for the series is starting, Colombia is on the UK government’s list of red countries.

Arrivals from Red List nations will have to quarantine at a Government-designated hotel for 10 days, with hotel quarantine starting Monday.

This will cost travellers up to £1,750 each for a ‘quarantine package’, although the Government is paying the upfront cost and will bill them afterwards. 

Several former stars who no longer regularly appear on Geordie Shore are thought to have been asked back for the special, however not everyone has agreed.

It was recently reported that Gary Beadle has allegedly refused to take part as he’s ‘grown up and moved on’.

While MTV bosses are also thought to be talking to Scotty T about making a return for the show – years after he was axed when snaps of him snorting cocaine emerged.

There has already been Geordie Shore special, Geordie Shore: Their Story, which aired in 2020 and saw a range of stars reflecting on their childhood journeys to life in the spotlight. 

Holly Hagan, Sophie Kasaei, Marnie Simpson, Aaron Chalmers, Nathan Henry, Abbie Holborn and James Tindale also appeared on the spin-off.
