Geordie Shore: Show original James Tindale leaves and two newbies arrive
The second episode of the new series of MTV reality show Geordie Shore sees the exit of long-standing cast member James Tindale.
James has been with the show since it started in 2011, when he appeared with Gary ‘Gaz’ Beadle, Charlotte Crosby, Vicky Pattison, Jay Gardner, Holly Hagan, Greg Lake and Sophie Kasaei.
Ten series later he feels it's time to move on.
Calling a family meeting on tonight's show, he immediately raises suspicions with Charlotte and Marnie.
"I’ve got a horrible feeling about this, I can see he can’t even get his words out and I know what we’ve been talking about," says Charlotte.
Marnie adds, "I just hope he’s not gonna say what I think he’s gonna say."
The whole group is devastated when he says, "I’ve made my decision that I need to move on to the next step and for me to do that is to leave here."
James had often been the subject of ridicule for his housemates in later seasons for being too reserved and quiet after he met his girlfriend Kate Thorne, who only appeared on the show occasionally.
However, Gary is particularly upset by him quitting the show.
They don't have long to cry, however, as two newbies arrive in the house tonight - Chloe Etherington and Nathan Henry.
As Nathan arrives, Charlotte says, "A new person to kiss, a new person to fancy, a new person to spoon, a new person to have sex with."
And Scotty T is excited by Chloe's arrival, "I recognise this bird, I used to get with her pure ages ago. Liberty!"
