MTV commission Mersey Shore, a Liverpool spin-off of Geordie Shore!

Geordie Shore

It seems as though in MTV's eyes three city based reality series just aren't enough, with reports this morning suggesting that the channel has commissioned 'Mersey Shore', a Geordie based spin off. The series will compete with ITV2 hit The Only Way Is Essex and E4 show Made In Chelsea.

The Sun. Both the new series and Geordie Shore are based on the success of US reality series Jersey Shore.

Geordie Shore launched last month to more than 300,000 viewers, making it the channel's biggest hit in years. However criticism started soon after, with local residents complaining about how the show portrayed Geordies.

The newspaper claims that show bosses want to sign up Eton Road star Anthony Hannah and "some of" Wayne Rooney's family!

A source told the tabloid this morning: "Scousers are always up for a drink and a night on the tiles. We think Mersey Shore will be just as explosive as Jersey and Geordie Shores."
