GEORDIE Shore star Sophie Kaskei has reportedly been axed from the latest series of the show over her use of a racist term on camera.

Filming is currently under way on the show’s seventh series, however during one of the recorded segments Kaskei allegedly said “I hate n****rs”.

A source told The Sun: “Apparently Sophie was caught using the n-word. Show bosses were made aware of what she is alleged to have said and they kicked her off the programme. She is devastated.”

MTV have confirmed that following an investigation, the station made the decision to permanently remove Sophie from the show.

A spokesperson said: “After an incident last week, Sophie Kasaei was removed from Geordie Shore pending further investigation into alleged offensive behaviour.

“MTV and Lime Pictures have now taken the decision that it is inappropriate for Sophie to return to the show.

“We will be reiterating to the remaining cast members that offensive behaviour will not be tolerated.”

It is the latest headache for producers – Cast members Holly and Vicki had to be removed from the show after they were arrested by police last week over an alleged nightclub assault.

The pair have vigorously denied any wrong doing.
