MTV's iconic reality TV show, Geordie Shore, has officially been axed, according to TV insiders.
The show kickstarted the careers of celebrity stars like Charlotte Crosby, Vicky Pattinson, Marnie Simpson and Chloe Ferry as the show's 'housemates' would party, drink and "neck on" with one another while working for Geordie Tours.
A source told The Sun: “MTV bosses have decided the time has come to call it a day on Geordie Shore."
They added that the 24th series which has already been commissioned will go ahead and another reunion series will air this summer, but there aren't any plans set for the show after that.
When the show first aired in 2011, it was a smash hit and at its peak, garnered around one million views. However, in recent years, the ratings have tumbled to barely over 100,000.
Providing some reassurance for fans of the show, the source added: "Think of it as resting the format rather than cancelling it out right."
“It's been one of the most successful runs of all time but the truth is it's not been the same for quite a few years. Bosses think it's the right time," they continued.
As they confirmed the news, the source revealed that the current stars, including former X-Factor contestant Amelia Lily and OG housemember James Tindale, haven't been informed of the shows axing and expects a "mixed reaction."
The news follows the Geordie Shore Reunion which saw many of the original cast members return.
The reunion episodes watched as original cast member Holly Hagan-Blythe get married to football player Jacob Blythe in a stunning Ibiza wedding after awkwardly catching up with ex-boyfriend from the show Kyle Christie.
Viewers also watched as fan-favourite Charlotte revealed to her Geordie family that she was pregnant. Fans expected an appearance from Gary Beadle, who had an infamous on and off relationship with Charlotte, but he never showed.
