Geordie Shore’s Marnie Is Bisexual, Charlotte And Chloe Hook Up On Camera

I might as well be honest with you: I’m American and I have never seen Geordie Shore, but I watched every single episode of Jersey Shore, so I’m pretty sure I can translate. While Jersey Shore was very aggressively heterosexual, it seems that this is not the case with the cast of Geordie Shore. Cast member Marnie Simpson recently returned to the show (now in its 12th season) after a tearful exit the previous season. She’d been engaged to The Only Way Is Essex star Ricky Rayment, but apparently that relationship had already fizzled by the time the episode in which she quit Geordie Shore had even aired (whoops). I’m assuming this makes her Geordie Shore’s equivalent of Sammi Sweetheart?

This is a television show.

This is a show about a bunch of people trapped inside a giant M, to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.

Anyway, Simpson recently announced on Twitter:

Lest you dismiss Marnie as just another one of those straight girls who saw Ruby Rose on Orange Is The New Black and felt very proud of themselves for having a “girl crush,” she clarified:

Not to mention the (valid) question:

This has been quite a journey of self-discovery for Marnie.

Additionally, longtime cast member Charlotte Crosby  recently hooked up with castmate Chloe Etherington on camera in a recent episode, though the pair seemed to keep it very casual and gave no real indication that this encounter signified anything in particular about either girl’s sexual orientation. They both laughed it off the next morning, although Chloe did confess that she was pretty sure she’d lost a fingernail somewhere in there (yikes). Fair warning, the clip below is fairly explicit in a way I’m not sure even American MTV has ever been. These guys need a Smush Room.

As this article went to press, none of the women who had engaged in same-sex activity on Geordie Shore had been killed off the show.

  1. So relieved to know neither Charlotte or Chloe have died yet.
    Someone should forward them some information in a good bullet proof vest. Can never be to careful with those stray bullets.

  2. “As this article went to press, none of the women who had engaged in same-sex activity on Geordie Shore had been killed off the show”

    I laughed a little too hard at this and I can’t stop the giggles. Now the shrink that is going to evaluate me for ADD is writing something down before we are even starting. Time to mess with her head.

  3. Wow Geordie Shore is on Autostraddle…did hell freeze over?!? They had a smush room at one point, (missus and her b-fri used to watch it at ours so I saw it…a lot), but didn’t care much about where they went at it. Also if you can’t understand them, try watching the Valleys.

  4. I have such a love-hate relationship with Geordie Shore. I watched it and lived in England during the first seasons. It’s so terribly terribly good.

  5. I mean…were I not already, hanging out with the men on a Jersey Shore type show would definitely make me gay.

  6. whats with the yelling commentary? charlotte’s describing things like they happened to someone else

  7. Asking for a friend… Where in Australia did Marnie find all these young, hot, crazy lesbians?

  8. This is not really relevant, but I wanted to say that this is my most used gif.
