As you may have seen, last week I got the change to interview the cast before we saw the first episode air on Tuesday.
I have just transcribed my interview I did with Vicky, Charlotte, Jay and Gary and it’s pretty exciting!
We see some interesting opinions and happenings to look out for, so make sure you read the interview by clicking “more” below!
Me: How do you think you’ve changed since doing series 1?
Charlotte: I don’t think we have changed have we? I haven’t.
Gaz: You’ll watch and you’ll see were all exactly the same.
C: You’ll watch and you’ll be like oh my god not all this again.
Me: What was it like with new people coming into the house?
Vicky: I think we’ve just answered that [laughs] [referring to a quick conversation before the interview]
C: we knew Ricci was coming and we were fine with that
V: Cause we expected there to be another lad didn’t we because of Greg’s exit but the girl was a shock and they played it very well, like they had us all in all day didn’t they and we’d all had a drink and wed all met Ricci and everyone was drunk, and everyone was happy and then they just bring in this lass who comes in all guns blazing
C: she comes in with an attitude
V: can you imagine how well that went down
Me: yeah, well I’ve seen the trailer with you
V: yeah well that’s just the f***ing very tip of the iceberg that is
J: on the other hand Ricci had obviously come in he was just like
V: nice to meet you
G: the lads were like “alright mate, join in” but the girls. Wed just sorted Holly out just got her like where we didn’t mind her, got her alright with the girls. And after Magaluf it took ages to get Holly to be just OK and now this new 18 year old comes in
V: the age is a very big factor isn’t it
G: obviously she’s young she’s opinionated so it was just hard again for a girl to come into that situation if you can imagine
Me: Is Volcano Vicky back in full force?
V: Oh aye f***ing too right.
V: do you know what it is? I tried to be nice in Magaluf and it was just s***e wasn’t it? I tried to be nice for my mam cause my mam didn’t like seeing me kick off it made her upset but at the end of the day I think my mam will probably be happier that I was being true to myself. Being true to myself does involve me having lots of arguments. How do you feel about Volcano Vicky? Are you glad she’s back?
Me: yeah I like her
C: everyone loves her don’t they?
Me: I think it’s funny. Your best one-liners come out like that.
V: apparently I’m really funny in this new series
C: she compares Becca to thrush.
V: I say Becca’s so irritating she’s like thrush. That’s a f***ing understatement as well.
G: what was it? “I’ve got older toenails”
V: Oh I just grief her to bits. Expect more of that though it’s going to be f***ing good! To overview it all, the boy is lovely the girl is not so much.
Me: If you could do special episodes anywhere where would you do them?
V: Aye, that’d be really canny for a little one off summer special
G: just a one off. Going out in the massive clubs, pool parties, it’d be Magaluf times 50 do you know what I mean?
J: America as well
C & V: Las Vegas!
Me: Yeah they [James, Ricci & Rebecca] said Las Vegas as well but Holly and Rebecca wouldn’t be able to drink.
C: Yeah that’s fine
G: That’s fine!? Sound!
V: oh nice yeah. So Las Vegas definitely then. [Laughs]
Me: Sophie’s done Get Thin or Die Tryin’, so if you could do a spin off show what would you do?
C: She [Vicky] would do driving lessons
V: I can’t drive
C: She’s never had a driving lesson
V: I’ve never been behind the wheel of a car in my life
C: Can you imagine Vicky with road rage!? It would be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, would it? “F***ing stupid c**t!” [Immediately puts hand over mouth]
C: wow, I don’t know what came over us there
V: She was channelling my road rage. I need to learn how to drive so my mam thinks it’d be absolutely hysterical if MTV filmed me learning how to drive. I’d probably agree with her to be fair.
J: that’s probably the best thing to do, imagine it with all the paps and that.
V: Yeah can you imagine “F**k off!”
C: What would you do Jay?
J: I don’t know I wouldn’t mind doing something like judging. I don’t know what in but like X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, stuff like that. I’d love to go on Britain’s Got Talent and just be a judge. Just something like that.
G: I’d like a Hitch programme for people who can’t pull.
V: yeah you two [Gary and Jay] would be quite good like tag team something that you know.
G: if a lad comes and they haven’t got a clue what to wear or what to say, what to text and things, id just help them.
V: Do you know what me and Charlotte thought about doing as well? You know Loose Women?
C: But a younger version!
V: Like Loose Lasses
C: wed be all sitting at a board all talking about what we like, like talk about s**t in a really horrible way about shagging and that and we’d be like “aw Mario’s with Lucy, I think he’s cheating on her” stuff like that.
V: and obviously we’d have guests. Wed have someone come in from TOWIE and chat to them and wed rate or slate people’s outfits in an award ceremony
C: You know they do Top Gear, we had an idea that you know where they do they board they stick the times on, we’d have torso of the week. So your heads getting knocked off if they’re s**t and the guests get rated, so you’ve got to shout “Off! Off! Off!”
V: Wed get the Geordie Shore lads on. It’d just be brilliant wouldn’t that be good? Would you watch that?
Me: What’s the best thing to happen to you since being on Geordie Shore?
G: Australia meeting Audrina [Patridge] that was like an experience and get people over there recognising us.
Me: I love the Down Under episode.
V: I’ve not seen it, is it good? These two? I got to meet Alan Carr last week, that was pretty much one of the highlights of my life. It was excellent.
G: he’s so funny as well.
Me: DO you miss anything from your life before Geordie Shore?
C: Just having a normal night out.
V: sometimes I sack off nights out, like with my mates you just think “I know it’s going to be one of them when I look back tomorrow and go “I know I shouldn’t have gone out”” do you know what I mean? You get that feeling the next day because sometimes, exactly what Gary says, like, you just take away from your friends and it’s not a night out when you’re kicking back with your friends, having a night out and getting out, you’re going to someone “no I’m not still with Jay, no everything’s fine, I don’t know about Gary and Charlotte, yeah I’ll tell Gaz”
C: F**k sake man! I want to get p***ed!
G: Sat on trains as well today I got sat down and there was a family of three and they straight away went on a three hour journey went “oh, are you Gaz?” and the whole train journey back was just questions about Magaluf then this then what are you doing now and I’m just like “do you know what it is, I’m on a f***ing train”
V: you can’t escape.
G: I was in the window seat as well so I was just like “aw I can’t get out here” so little things like that do get annoying.
Me: Do you feel pressured to keep with celebrity trends? Like being really thin and all the clothes?
C: I’m feeling the pressure lately, like.
G: Sophie’s programme proves that. Twitter as well. Girls go on twitter. You might get ten amazingly nice tweets and you’ll get one just going “you f***ing p***k”.
Me: You [Vicky] get nasty ones don’t you?
V: Yeah, cause you’ve seen me write back haven’t you?
C: Yeah, cause she responds though.
V: He’s [me] always there for me though, he always f***ing kicks off back to them.
C: Yeah, he’s there for me sometimes haven’t you? I don’t respond though.
J: Probably because they know you’re going to bite.
G: cause you’ve bit to all the other ones.
C: Yeah, they know that you’re going to bite.
J: They do it on purpose because they know they’re going to get a bite.
Me: I think they do it just cause they want more people on their bbm contacts. [Referring to Vicky’s previous tactics of sending out abusive tweeters bbm pin from their twitter bio]
V: Yeah probably have you seen I keep putting like three bbms up now. People f***ing want to grief me and they have their pin on their bio
G: I’ve used that one like “this is my bbm for fans”
V: “Please add my new bb for fans” do you know that one lad that I did he said “I will never get sick of punching you in the face” I thought “really?” check out your bio, he had his [bbm] pin and I thought “sound!” “Please add my bb pin it’s for all you fans” and all that. He got 3,000 and then his bbm crashed, his whole blackberry crashed. [Laughs]
G: Twitter’s good for some things, it doesn’t really bother me but it could, if you read every single one. With Sophie with Get Thin or Die Tryin’ obviously she is very conscious about her weight she looks at it very closely like there’s that much pressure if you’re getting 20 tweets a day going “you’re fat”
V: It’s just horrendous isn’t it?
G: and twitter’s addictive it’s like Facebook, you want to check your @ mentions if that little light on your phone is flashing you’re like “@” and the first four are just “you fat ugly c**t” you’re just like “Jesus Christ”. You might have been feeling ok today but it just puts a downer so things like that are hard things, you’ve just got to learn to deal with it. But it definitely does get to you, like.
V: I think it’s just unnecessary maliciousness at times and exactly like Gary says you’ve got to be probably Jay’s approach where he just doesn’t care. You’ve just got to learn to be like “I don’t care, I’m doing well you’re obviously not.” But it’s hard because I’ve not got the type of personality.
J: A lot of its jealousy.
V & C: Yeah.
G: you’d be going to the gym and that and they’d be like “oh you’re looking skinny you f***ing p***k” it’s like “oh ill go to the gym more” then you’re in the gym and they’re like…
J: It doesn’t matter what you do if you’re not training or you’re not looking good or you’ve lost weight or something, it’s like “oh you’re looking skinny” but if you go to the gym then…
G: “you’re looking massive.”
J: Aye people grief you for looking good. And then if you’re not looking good people still grief you. You cannot win.
V: you can’t win, that’s the perfect way of explaining it. You can’t win with the people on twitter.
G: Just call them a mingmong then block them. That’s what I do.
Me: What’s the best thing about having such a huge fan base? Cause you all have over 100,000 followers on twitter.
V: When someone griefs me on twitter I tell all my followers to grief them
C: That’s a good thing
C: And the support, cause when you do get support its amazing isn’t it?
V: Yeah, god it is.
C: All the nice things that people can say and stuff.
G: If you put on “I’m having a s**t day, I’m down” you will get thousands of replies like “love the show, you ledge”. Whatever, so it does help you. Also the more followers you get the more free stuff you get as well. If a clubs like “tweet us you can get free”, do you know what I mean? Clothes companies going, tweet us.
V: has she got half a million followers?
G: She’s got more than that hasn’t she?
V: Oh, cause it’s TOWIE isn’t it?
G: I bet you, if Joey Essex tweeted something now the amount they would do to get the tweet, they’d save the tweet, retweet it you’d use it for ages, like “Joey Essex uses us, look.” So I think you get more free stuff.
V: I think the support is really good though. Like Charlotte says if you are having a bad day or if someone does say something nasty then you get like 100 people being like “well don’t listen to them, they’re just jealous” and “you’re lovely” and this and that, and that’s just really nice to know that there’s people who do like our show and do like us. That’s probably one of the most positive things about having all them followers.
[Charlotte gasps as she overhears something said in an interview with Rebecca, Ricci and James, and begins to whisper to Vicky about what she heard]
Me: What do you think of all the other “reality” shows?
V: You’ve said it all haven’t you?
G: I think that no one can relate to them, you can’t relate to Made in Chelsea, no matter what anyone says. No one is flying around clubs in London buying thousand bottles of vodka like, you just can’t relate to that. Essex you can relate to but small, they’ve got the relationships. But ours is just real.
All: Yeah, real.
G: This is what happens week in, week out. You’ll see us waking up in a morning and getting out of bed with your hair over your eyes and you can’t see and they’ll film that. You will never see them, [TOWIE & MIC] with no makeup on or having a shower or doing their hair. It’s a lot to see a girl get filmed half make up done and one side of their hair, like, you see them perfect on your screen every time. And last time when Charlotte had her hair sticking out the sides, it just shows, people love that though cause it’s real. In Magaluf we came back with KFC and just, it’s genuinely real so I think that’s the difference.
V: I think most people can relate to ours, do you not?
J: Definitely, it’s what everyone does on a weekend isn’t it?
Me: If you could go on another reality show what would you do?
J: I’m a celebrity get me out of here.
C: Yeah I say that too.
G: I’d do the ice dancing or strictly come dancing.
V: You f***ing scruffy puff [laughs]
G: What’s it called the ice skating one?
All: Dancing on Ice.
G: I’d love a go at that.
V: I’d probably do Celebrity Big Brother but I don’t think it’d do me any f***ing favours.
V: I’d end up like Vanessa Feltz scrawling things on the wall in lipstick.
G: We lived in a house for six weeks but we were allowed out, speaking to other people, can you imagine if you just did that.
C: I would go insane.
V: I would do it though. Because I’d be the one like if Natasha Giggs came in and everyone was like “oh I don’t know” and everyone in their pre-stuff had been like “oh I hate girls who do kiss and tells” then they all bummed her when she came in. If she came in when I was there id be like “you’re a f***ing slag” and I’d tell her. DO you not think I’d be good on something like that?
C: Yeah, I think you’d be mint.
V: That’s what all these shows are really about.
Me: Who do you think most needs a Geordie make-over?
V: Pippa Middleton, cause she’s nice, she’s got the basics, to be unreal
G: She is unreal
V: She just needs some hair extensions and some eyelashes and that.
PR: She wears fake tan.
V: Well then she’s half way there. She’s got a really nice bum.
C: The Queen! [Laughs]
G: The Queen sitting there necking jaegers.
[Charlotte whispers what she heard from the other interview, about Rebecca saying the perfume could be used as pepper spray. Charlotte says that’s what she said already.]
V: No love loss.
Me: I’m dead surprised that in pictures when you were at Radio 1 you looked like you all got on.
V: No that’s because it’s just a picture there’s no words But if you heard words or what we were saying in mine and her heads it would be “get your f***ing hand of me you daft c**t”.
C: I was standing on the other side so I didn’t need to be near.
J: As you can see she’s a very likeable character in the house.
Me: Is Holly more integrated now?
C: Yes, Holly’s unreal.
V: She fell into a trap though midway through. Its hard cause Gary said before we always struggle with the youngest one because it’s so much upheaval for them, Holly was like that last year but she’s integrated well this year but then she felt quite obligated to be there for Becca which causes another level of tension within the house, so that’s something to keep an eye out for.
G: Cause Holly knows what she’s [Rebecca] going through. Holly’s like “I want to be in this group but I kind of know what she’s going through” it’s like “I’m friends with her, but then the girls”.
V: But it bites her in the arse cause she never bothered with her after the show. Just saying. F***ing won’t do that again!
Me: Are there any surprising house hook-ups?
V: Oh god there’s a couple that you would just never see coming.
C: Yeah, there’s actually a couple!
V: F**k off there’s so many!
C: There’s quadruple couples and you think “woah!”
V: At one point mate everyone’s f***ing f***ing!
C: Oh no there’s more!
G: There’s a boy/boy too!
[Charlotte whispers to Vicky to explain]
V: Err yeah! Scruffy b*****ds, I forgot about that! It’s all going off. We’ve got everything.
Me: What about you [Vicky] and Ricci?
V: Me and Ricci?
Me: Cause you’ve been pictured out a few times.
V: oh yeah well Gary was there as well he just wasn’t in the pictures!
Me: Yeah, but you were holding hands.
C: Yeah they’re just dead good friends.
V: DO you want to hold my hand? See you’re canny good at holding hands! You’d want to f***ing hold my hand!
C: It’s cause you were crossing the road!
V: Yep. Safety always comes first!
C: You were crossing the road, and Vicky was drunk and she’s been ran over loads of times before.
V: That’s why I limp
C: He was really worried
V: Have you ever seen that advert with the little hedgehogs?
C: [sings] look left. Look right.
V: Always look left, look right, hold hands, have you got a grown up? And Ricci was just my grown up.
Me: Hm, that’s cute.
Me: Do you [Gary] and Charlotte… is there a repeat of that?
[Nervous laughter, followed by awkward silence]
V: aw bless him [me] he like sensed the tone and was like “f**k I need another question”. I reckon there’s going to be fireworks tomorrow. [In reference to the screening of the first episode of the new series, and the live interview afterwards]
C: She [Laura Whitmore] is going to ask about you [Vicky] and Rebecca.
V: And I’m not biting my tongue.
