Geordie Shore's Gaz: "I'm Not A Celebrity"
We talk to the womaniser about life beyond the hit MTV show...
In an exclusive MTV interview, North-East hunkGeordie Shoreas "the luckiest thing in the world."
With the sixth season of the hit MTV show starting on July 9, Gaz says: "I don't think I've changed. I still love going out, I still love me (sic) mates, I still love having banter and having a laugh. It's just that you're more comfortable."
Prior to being on Geordie Shore, Gaz worked as a fully qualified tiler before jetting off to Malia to work for the summer. Working as a doorman, he spent his last £20 on a night out, during which he was scouted for Geordie Shore.
In addition to his part on the reality show, Gaz now has his own app called 'Gazzd' and owns a clothing store in Newcastle called Project 722, which he describes as "absolutely amazing."
He stated: "I love it. I can have loads of laughs here. I can just come and chill out with my mates, watch a DVD.
"It's weird because you've got to get your business head on. I never thought I'd own a shop or have to sort out invoices and staff."
But the Geordie, whose on/off relationship with fellow co-star Charlotte has been a consistent story across the seasons, added that despite his newfound fame, he doesn't consider himself to be a celeb.
Gaz explained: "I hate the word celebrity. To me, Beckham is famous and Brad Pitt is a celebrity. I'm a p*sshead on TV, I'm not a celebrity."
Gaz also speaks about his time in Australia, where he visited clubs where the likes of Flo-Rida, Lady Gaga and Kanye West have all partied.
"To me that's when I thought sh*t, I'm on the other side of the world, going to clubs and shopping centres where 5,000 people turn up. And I'm in Australia. That's when I thought – I'm famous!"
Talking about the future, Gaz added: "I have no idea where I'm going to be next week, never mind in five years. In ten years I'd love to still have all these successful businesses, but I'm just going to carry on getting smashed and pulling birds and see where I end up."
