GAZ Beadle is set to make an explosive return to Geordie Shore, six years after he quit.
The Sun can exclusively reveal that the 35 year-old former party boy is currently in talks with MTV bosses after his heartbreaking split from wife Emma McVey.

A show insider reveals: ” For a long time, Gaz felt like he was done with Geordie Shore – he even snubbed the show’s big reunion series last year, despite various attempts by the cast to get in touch with him.
“In recent years, he just wanted to live a quiet family life outside of the spotlight, but after the recent breakdown of his marriage, he’s been doing a lot of thinking and feels ready to rediscover the old Gaz and go back to the show that made him a star.”
Producers have wanted to get back Gaz back in the mix for a long time, and with his ex Charlotte Crosby recently announcing she’d quit the show for good, they were hellbent on luring back an original cast member to fill the gap.
“The show knows that the loss of Charlotte is a big blow, and to keep things fresh and exciting going forward, they set their heart on bringing Gaz back into the fold when filming restarts next year.

“Contracts are still yet to be signed but there have been a lot of productive talks and it’s basically a done deal.”
Charlotte’s final series has already been filmed and will air in the coming months.
It was originally thought that the recently-wrapped run would be the final series of the long-running show but it was saved from cancellation after bosses were thrilled with all the drama that arose during filming.
Production will therefore begin on another series in early 2024, to air later that year, when Gaz will make his sensational comeback.
“For Gaz, Charlotte not being on the show anymore actually helped sway his decision because the two of them have been through a lot of ups and downs in the past that he wasn’t particularly keen to revisit.
“This way, it’s a chance for him to have a fresh start but on a familiar format with old friends.”
The Sun has contacted MTV for comment.
Gaz was part of the original Geordie Shore line-up back in 2011 when the show first burst onto our screens.
He then quit in 2017, but starred in two series of spin-off show Geordie OGs, which followed several cast members in their real lives away from the Geordie Shore house.
He then quit for the second time in 2020 and married then-girlfriend Emma in 2021.
The pair, who first got together in 2016, have two children, Chester, five, and Primrose, three.
Gaz stunned his followers last month when he announced that the marriage was over.
“We split three weeks ago,” he said on social media. “We are still friends, there is no bad blood or anything and we have worked out the best way of doing it for the kids, which for me and Emma is always going to be the most important thing.
“We both deserve to be happy as well as being parents.”
