Marnie Simpson has publicly blasted Adam Collard after he made claims that he “turned down” an offer to star in Geordie Shore.
The Geordie Love Island hunk, who will enter the villa on 4 June, spoke to Mail Online about joining the hit ITV2 show, stating that his chance to “couple up” came about after he rejected the chance to join the line up of Geordie Shore.
Personal trainer Adam said: “I’m not that type of person. Don’t get us wrong, I like going out. But I’m not daft, I’ve got something between my ears at the same time. I wouldn’t want the stereotype of ‘Oh, let’s go, let’s get f**ked.’
“I don’t want to come across that way. I love having a laugh and going out but in between all that I’ve got things I want to do with my life as well.”
Taking a further swipe at Gaz Beadle’s show, the 22 year old added: “I think it’s got worse now, recently. I don’t want to slate the show, but I think Newcastle is more like Love Island than Geordie Shore.”
He also said that he doesn’t believe that the cast of the show truly represent the population of his hometown.

“People from down South maybe don’t realise that Geordie people are more like the islanders. They’re smart, they know what they’re doing. They’ve got things going on, especially in Newcastle.
“It’s more of a stereotype there, and you get the extremists, like the Geordie Shore cast. It’s not a true representation.”
But now Geordie Shore veteran Marnie has taken to Twitter to slam Adam, branding him a ‘liar’.
She posted a screenshot of the article to her 1.07 million followers with the caption: “Well that’s a lie.
“You auditioned for it every series and got rejected,” the 26 year old continued.
Love Island begins on Monday 4 June at 9pm on ITV2.
