BIG Brother star Narinder Kaur today told how new reality TV show Geordie Shore left her horrified.

Last night the programme exploded onto the country’s TV screens.

And with a first episode packed full of drink, nudity and casual flings, the MTV show shocked.

Narinder was one of those glued to her screen last night and the star, originally from Killingworth, North Tyneside, said she could barely believe her eyes.

“I was determined not to be shocked,” said the mam. “I am a Geordie girl and I thought there was nothing I hadn’t seen - but I must have gasped out loud 40 times.

“I felt embarrassed and enthralled at the same time. I just kept thinking, ‘Their parents are watching this’. I couldn’t believe what I had just watched.

“Let’s be honest, if they had all been sat around having a cup of tea and talking about their careers we wouldn’t have been interested - but I wasn’t expecting it to be that bad. At times, I was disgusted.”

Narinder, 38, said the show – which was hotly anticipated across the UK – risked giving Geordies a bad name.

“It was what people wanted to see – Geordies getting drunk and making idiots of themselves. When I was on TV I made a bit of a fool of myself too, but you would have thought the years of Big Brother and other shows would have taught the Geordie Shore cast something.

“Is the show representative of girls and guys on a night out in the Bigg Market? Possibly. But is it representative of Newcastle as a whole? I really hope not.

“Newcastle has come a long way recently – but Geordie Shore took it back 40 years to when the Viz started doing cartoons about Fat Slags.”

She said the stars of the show may come to regret their actions.

“I think they will have watched the show with everyone else and thought, ‘Oh my God’. They won’t have realised how it would be edited – they’ll have just thought it was one big party,” she said.

“As an ex-reality TV contestant, I read between the lines a bit. You could see where the producers might have encouraged them to do or say certain things, and they threw a lot of drink at them.

“They are only young and they were excited – but the whole thing seemed very immature.

“If you stripped back the fake tan, fake eyelashes, hair extensions and gym obsessions, they are probably eight very sweet people. No-one came across as nasty – they just came across as dim.”

Narinder said she wasn’t sure if she would be tuning in again. “There was no storyline like The Only Way is Essex,” she said. “For the first 45 minutes it was just rubbish TV. Only in the last 10 minutes did they start to bond and you could see where storylines might develop.”
