James Tindale has been axed from MTV reality series 'Geordie Shore' after three years and nine series, to make way for younger stars
James Tindale has reportedly been axed from 'Geordie Shore'.
The 24-year-old star has appeared on the MTV reality series set in Newcastle since it first began in 2011 but was dropped by bosses just days before he was set to start filming for the upcoming tenth series.
Despite being younger than co-star Gary 'Gaz' Beadle, 26, and the same age as 24-year-old Charlotte Crosby, James is reported to have been cut from the lineup to make way for younger castmates.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Geordie Shore is James's life. He's gutted that he has been put into early retirement."
The cast of 'Geordie Shore' has seen a number of changes since the first series, with stars including Jay Gardner, Sophie Kasaei and Ricci Guarnaccio all leaving to make way for new faces such as Marnie Simpson, Kyle Christie and Aaron Chalmers.
Meanwhile, James' fellow reality TV veteran Vicky Pattison, 27, announced last month that she had quit the show, claiming she felt she'd outgrown it.
She said at the time: "I know a lot of the people in the house are going to be quite content to sort of be 40-years-old and still downing jagerbombs and bucking birds, but for me that was just never an option."
James and Vicky have now been replaced by a new boy - whose identity is yet to be revealed - and a girl named Chloe November.
