'Geordie Shore' has been commissioned for a third series.
While the first two series of the MTV reality show have taken place in the stars' home town of Newcastle, the third season will see the likes of Gaz Beadle, Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby fly 5,000 miles across the Atlantic to enjoy the legendary Spring Break period in Mexican party hotspot, Cancun.
The eight episodes - which will be screened this summer - will see the cast enjoy living in their own luxury villa, as well as attending the wild pool parties and crazy nightclubs the resort is famed for.
However, with them all having to hold down day jobs to pay for their Mexican adventure, it doesn't look set to be an easy ride.
Kerry Taylor, director of television for Viacom International Media Networks UK and Ireland, said: "There has been an overwhelming response to 'Geordie Shore' from our audiences across the globe - both from a ratings perspective and across social media platforms.
"Love it or hate it, 'Geordie Shore' is irresistibly compelling TV, and the success of the series truly underscores MTV's ability to create buzz and engage with young 'millennial' audiences everywhere."
The cast were unaware of the plans to shoot the third series of 'Geordie Shore' in Cancun until today (23.02.12), but they appear thrilled at the news.
Gaz tweeted: "SERIES 3 HAS BEEN CONFIRMED!!!! WE ARE HEADING 2 MEXICO CANCUN 4 5 WEEKS 4 SPRING BREAK!!!!! Hope them Americans r ready BOSH! (sic)"
Holly Hagan wrote: "SPRING BREAK for 5 weeks in cancun! Wow this is gunna be crazy! So lucky!! (sic)"
'Geordie Shore' hunk James Tindale recently admitted he would snap up the opportunity to return for a third series of the MTV show because being a part of it is "every lad's dream".
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "If a third series goes ahead I am getting involved without a doubt. We basically get paid to go out and party, it's every lad's dream. I'd be mad to say no."
