Scotty T Just Made A VERY Good Point About People's Double Standards Over Love Island And Geordie Shore
Geordie Shore star Scotty T tweeted that attitudes to sex on TV have double standards after Love Island contestants are invited on Lorraine
We like to think of Geordie Shore's Scotty T as a bit of a philosopher of our times.
And the Geordie lad made a really good point when he took to Twitter this morning to call out the double standards between Geordie Shore and Love Island.
He said: "So on Geordie Shore...when the cast first had sex on TV it was demonised.
"But do it on ITV2 and you get invited onto Lorraine. Seems legit."
He's got a right good point.
When the Geordie lads and lasses first hit or screens back in 2011, there was a mass uproar about the televised antics of Charlotte Crosby, Vicky Pattison and the gang.
Newcastle's MP, Chi Onwarah, even described the show as 'borderline pornographic' and said she would ask some questions in Parliament about the saucy content. Oh, please.
Fast forward five years and the likes of Zara Holland and Cara De La Hoyd are being invited to world premieres, having cosy chats with daytime TV hosts and generally being treated like celebrity gold.
We'll gloss over the whole being-stripped-of-the-Miss-Great-Britain-title here.
Don't worry, Scotty. Just think of Geordie Shore as being ground-breaking, progressive telly. We do.
