The show is set to film in Newcastle where, according to MTV UK's director of television Kerry Taylor, "it is always summer", "no one wears a coat" and "Geordie girls are always out in their miniskirt".
Sounds kinda tame to us!
And if you were hoping to see a Geordie pouffed Snooki, don't hold your breath.
Taylor maintains the Geordie Shore is only "loosely" based on the original, but will definitely have "memorable characters who are funny and brash but at the same time warm and get on with each other".
The UK version of fist pumping starts this spring.
