The premiere of MTV's new reality show Geordie Shore included the housemates having a fist fight in a club, one night stands and nudity in a shared hot tub.
A spinoff from the successful US series Jersey Shore, the programme features four girls and four guys from the North-East living and partying together under the same roof.
Last night's opening instalment proved to be as controversial as its US counterpart with "self-confessed professional poser" James Tindale ending up in a scuffle on their first group night out. The gym fanatic lashed out at a man who was performing rude hand gestures behind his back while he was kissing a girl. His co-star Greg Lake also joined in the fight, which spilled on to the venue's dancefloor.
Sophie Kasaei introduced herself to the show by getting drunk immediately on arrival at the house and vomiting on the bathroom floor. Meanwhile, Holly Hagan, who has a boyfriend, flashed her boobs in a hot tub and allowed the boys to pour champagne over them.
Gaz Beadle brought two women back to the show's special "sh*g pad" room and spent the night with them, before hooking up with co-star Charlotte later in the episode.
Vicky Pattison and Jay Gardiner were also shown sharing a kiss in a bedroom, but she later claimed that she was more interested in gas man Greg.
The cast have claimed that their show will be better than Jersey Shore and revealed to DS that the "boob flashing and fighting" in the premiere was "the tip of the iceberg".
Geordie Shore continues next Tuesday at 10pm on MTV.
