MTV have announced this morning that original Geordie Shore cast member Jay Gardner will re-join the show for its sixth series.
Jay left the show at the end of its third series, which was filmed in Mexico.
MTV announced that Jay will shortly be flying out to Australia to join the cast where they are currently filming.
It is believed none of the cast are aware that he has agreed to re-join MTV UK’s highest rated show ever.
Jay said about his return: “Wow Series 6 in Oz. So excited! Can't wait to surprise everyone in the house when they hear the doorbell to find out it's me Jay!"
“I can't wait to catch up with the lads in Australia, especially my mate Gaz, and see what this Scotty guy is really all about!
“Will be great catching up with the girls in the house too. I just hope that there's less drama this time than Cancun.”
The last episode of the current series will be broadcast on MTV tonight.
