Cambridge Gets Gazzed! The Geordies Take Over Cambridge University's Student Union
Gary Beadle, James Tindale and Vicky Pattison visited Cambridge to chat about their drinking, partying and bucking celebrity lifestyle...
Inviting public figures to speak at the student union has long been a proud tradition for Cambridge University, and this weekend, it was time for Geordie Shore's stars to follow in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, Dame Judi Dench, Russell Brand, Stephen Hawking and erm… Katie Price.
Gary Beadle, James Tindale and Vicky Pattison admitted they were nervous as they took to the stage to chat about their drinking, partying and bucking celebrity lifestyle. But they needn't have worried - the Geordies went down a treat.

"It might teach you a few things Cambridge won't," Gaz cheekily told the crowd when asked why people should start watching Geordie Shore.
Speaking about their reputation, Gaz said: "At the start, people thought we gave Newcastle a bad name."
Vicky added: "Slowly but surely everybody got on board. I think they thought we were poking fun at where we were from, but it's the total opposite."
Queen V also argued that Geordie Shore is a more relatable style of reality TV than Made In Chelsea or The Only Way Is Essex, telling the crowd: "You don't want to see posh people drinking Bloody Marys all the time. You want to see young people drinking Jagerbombs and having a f***ing laugh.
"They turn off at the good bits. I don't want to see the awkward flirting. I want to see the bucking."
The union's president Tim Squirrell live tweeted the event, which also saw Mr Beadle address the controversial question of how he views women.
"It depends how they value themselves," said the self-professed womaniser, who admitted he's slept with over 1,000 lasses. "You value girls who've got a bit of discipline or self respect. Girls who throw themselves at you on the first night are slags... Girls are lining up to have sex with you. No guy at 25 says ‘no thanks girls, not tonight'."

But the lad admitted he's calming down now he's hit his mid-20s. "I went a bit crazy the first while, now it's getting boring and I want to settle down," he said. "I'll settle down before 30."
Gaz also hit back at Newcastle Central MP Chi Onwurah, who had previously criticised the show as "bordering on pornographic," claiming it brought the city into disrepute. "I know his daughter and she's just as bad as us," responded the Geordie lad.
"Every young person gets pissed and does stupid things, so why do we get judged for doing it on TV?" he added.
Well said man! Now - who's up for a pint?
Geordie Shore returns on Tuesday 28th October at 10pm, only on MTV.
