Marty McKenna and Chantelle Connelly were never fans of Geordie Shore
Marty McKenna and Chantelle Connelly were never fans of 'Geordie Shore'.
The MTV newcomers have admitted they were not obsessed with the show, which they will appear on next week alongside Marnie Simpson, Aaron Chalmers, Chloe Ferry, Scott Timlin and veteran Gaz Beadle, when it made its debut in 2011, with Chantelle admitting she stopped watching after the first series.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Marty said: "I wasn't a fan."
Whilst co-star Chantelle added: "I'm not going to lie. I watched the first ever series and that was it. So, I was totally not ready for what was going to go on."
The brunette beauty admitted that she felt nervous about being the reality show's latest arrival, although she swiftly settled in.
She said: "It's nerve-racking obviously; you get nervous and that but as time goes on, you're not new anymore, you're only new for so long and then you're part of the family. Everybody is going to be a newbie at some point."
Series 12 of 'Geordie Shore' premieres on MTV on Tuesday (15.03.16) at 10pm.
