'Geordie Shore' newcomer, Chantelle Connelly, has called time on the show after recently joining the twelfth series
Chantelle Connelly has reportedly quit Geordie Shore "for love".
The brunette beauty is said to be the second star to ditch the MTV series in a matter of weeks following the shock exit of show-regular Charlotte Crosby, who walked following her heartbreaking ectopic pregnancy.
It's believed Chantelle - who was previously a stripper - is desperate to re-unite with her ex-boyfriend Tommy Sayers and didn't fancy jetting off to Kavos with the rest of the cast, with a source telling The Sun newspaper: "Chantelle's heart hasn't been in it since the cast started filming the new series. She has a lot of history with Tommy and it was either him or the show so she decided to quit for love."
Meanwhile, BBC bosses are currently deciding the line-up for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Chantelle said recently she'd happily swap her hot pants, potty mouth and lap-dancing antics for foxtrots and elegant ball gowns on the BBC One hit show.
She told BANG Showbiz: "What I would actually love to do more than anything is 'Strictly Come Dancing'. I love dancing. If means I've got to stop swearing to get on 'Strictly', I will stop swearing."
And the loud-mouthed reality TV star believes her background in dance will stand her in good stead at impressing the judges and ultimately lifting the highly-sought after glitter ball trophy.
She added: "I'm a good dancer. I'd win it, guarantee I'd win it."
