GEORDIE Shore’s 10-year anniversary has been thrown into chaos with filming delayed until June after Gaz Beadle quit, The Sun can reveal.
MTV had hoped to get the original gang back together for a special series that marked a decade since the outrageous reality show first hit out screens in 2011.

Yesterday, we told how the channel’s other popular reality show, Ex On The Beach, had been delayed by four months after originally being due to begin shooting in the coming weeks.
Bosses had planned for both shows to be filmed in Colombia in a bid to avoid the UK’s strict lockdown rules, but they have still run into trouble.
Now Geordie Shore won’t be able to start shooting until May the earliest – and the show’s stars might not be able to move their schedule to fit it in.
A source told The Sun: “It’s total chaos – plane tickets had been booked, the cast had blocked out time in their schedule – but it’s all been pushed back to summer now.

“They’re scrambling to make things work – it’s all tricky to book everyone back in for May.”
When approached for comment, an MTV rep said: “We do not comment on rumours or speculation.”
This is just the latest in a long line of blows that the anniversary special has faced in recent months, with fan favourite Gaz snubbing it all together, and Charlotte Crosby only committing to half of filming.

Gaz, 32, told producers that he is “too busy” to come back, with an insider adding that he isn’t interested in taking part because he has since “grown up and moved on”.
And earlier this month, we told how Charlotte only agreed to film in Colombia for two weeks as she has too much going on in the UK.
An insider told us at the time: “Charlotte’s so busy in the UK – she’s got several businesses, the house renovation and Liam waiting at home for her.

“She doesn’t want to leave any of that for too long, so she’s agreed to film for two weeks then return home, while the rest of the cast stay out for a month.”
In December, The Sun revealed that the next series of Geordie Shore was swapping Newcastle for Colombia to ensure that the gang can still enjoy their wild nights out while the UK’s night life remains closed in lockdown.
