Show bosses are said to be hoping the former The X Factor star, 25, – who was born in Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, north east England – will make “great” TV for viewers on the Newcastle-based series.
A source told The Sun Online:
‘Bosses are made up they’ve signed Amelia for the show and promise she will make it the best series yet.
‘She’s always up for a laugh and will make great telly for viewers.
‘Amelia’s not shy about saying what she thinks either so things could get explosive’.
It comes following reports Chloe Ferry is back for another series, without ex Sam Gowland – but he could return to the show at some point.
An insider said:
‘At the moment Sam won’t be a part of the show but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t return at a later date’.
In July, Geordie Shore original James Tindale confirmed he is returning to the MTV show.
‘In the past I have been a very, very toned down person so this time I went in no f***s given, done what I want, said what I wanted.
‘This time I am just me. I was the only single lad in there so I did what I wanted.
‘I didn’t expect to do any more ‘Geordie Shore’. I thought that time in my life had pretty much come and gone.
‘I’ve been single for a while now and enjoying that and making the most of it so when I did get a call if I wanted to go back it fitted in with my schedule and I thought why not? I’m single’.
James quit the reality TV show in 2014 to concentrate on his relationship with Kate Thorne, but they have since split.
