MTV have revealed they plan to film two 'Geordie Shore' specials in Magaluf this summer
The 'Geordie Shore' cast are heading to Magaluf.
The eight stars of MTV's latest reality series - Jay Gardner, Gaz Beadle, Vicky Pattison, Charlotte Crosby, James Tindale, Greg Lake, Sophie Kasaei, and Holly Hagan - are to film two special episodes of the programme in the Majorcan resort. However, the group won't just be having fun in the sun - they will also be given jobs in a souvenir shop popular with other British tourists.
While their antics abroad remain to be seen, their behaviour at home sparked outrage when the show premiered last week.
The launch episode featured the housemates frolicking half-naked in a jacuzzi, throwing up after a night out and brawling in nightclubs, and caused over 20,000 angry viewers to take to Facebook to vent their views on the series.
One page, entitled R.I.P Geordie Pride, stated: "After this we can no longer be proud to have a Geordie accent after these t***s embarrass us all on national television."
An angry viewer vented: "this show must be removed from tv ...... its a disgrace to all the good hard working geordies !!!! and as for their parents well !!! they want to be embarrassed to think they give birth to them and need to look at there parenting skills !!!!
"if these people wish to do the things they do, then so be it im sure they will be the most hated geordies in the world ..... was the 5 min fame really worth it ??? i think not !!!!!!(sic)"
While broadcasting watchdog OFCOM has confirmed it has received complaints about the outlandish nature of the programme, it is "unlikely" officials will do anything to curb it because no codes of practice have been breached.
