Confirmed: James Tindale quits Geordie Shore!
We hope you’re sitting down, because we have some shocking news for you Geordie fans.
James Tindale is the latest cast member to announce he’s leaving the show and we’re hoping this isn’t becoming a domino effect because right now, it feels like our beloved Geordies are dropping like flies.
Like his former cast mate before him, Vicky P, the Northern lad has been on the show from the very beginning, but after 10 seasons of hitting the toon and getting’ mortal, he’s finally had enough.
"I've had the most amazing few years being part of the Geordie Shore family so will always remain close," James explained. "I’ve got a lot of exciting fitness projects in the pipeline and looking forward to what the future holds."
An MTV rep has also confirmed the sad news, but explains the comb-over king is an integral part of the Geordie Shore clan and he won’t be straying too far from our screens.
"We are always evolving the show and bringing new Geordies into the mix but James will always be part of the Geordie Shore family and I am sure we'll see him again."
This announcement comes as quite a shock considering just two months ago, the northern lad confessed to MTV Australia he had no plans to leave the show.
When asked if he’d ever leave Geordie Shore to start a family or be with Kate full time, he revealed, “I don’t think it’s at that point where I feel like I can’t do it anymore.
“To be honest it’s getting easier for us and I’m enjoying it still and I’m still young.
"I don’t want a family or anything yet but if it did get to that point it would be something to think about. But for now I think Geordie Shore will be finished by the time I have a family. I’m only 24!”
We’re not going to jump the gun here and assume he and long-term girlfriend Kate are expecting, but something has certainly changed his mind.
Back in September, James was happy to keep going with the show, adding his “cut off” would be when he hit 30-years-old.
“I thought Geordie Shore was only going to be one series and now we’re going to be filming the 10th. But I’m happy to keep doing it. 30 [years old] will be my cut off.”
Sad to see another favourite go, but we can’t wait to see what’s in store for season 10!
