EXCLUSIVE: Holly Hagan announced for MTV Reality Con
by Laura Forsyth
Wae’aye man! Geordie Shore fans will be thrilled with our exclusive announcement that OG cast member Holly Hagan is set to attend the upcoming MTV Reality Con.
Celebrity Secrets can reveal that the reality TV star will be part of the interactive experience that will give fans the chance to explore some of the most iconic sets in MTV history.
Taking place in May 2020, fans of reality TV will have the unique opportunity to see the stars behind their favourite shows and visit the unforgettable locations behind the chaos.
Holly told Celebrity Secrets: “At first I wasn’t sure what it was as we don’t usually have these kind of conventions in England – it’s more common in the US.
“But it’s basically like Comic Con for reality TV fans. If anyone went as me it would be hilarious – imagine them dressing up as me through different eras of Geordie Shore from series one to 13!”
The three-day event will give viewers the chance to get up close and personal with the Shag Pad and Hot Tub from Geordie Shore before kicking back in an Ex On The Beach inspired chill-out area including a live DJ.
The Just Tattoo Of Us set will also be open to visitors, with attendees having the chance to get their own (temporary) inking from the show alongside a photo opportunity involving those iconic AF fear goggles.
The event will also include competitions, challenges, and live panels with the cast and industry insiders discussing all the behind-the-scenes secrets of how the shows are pieced together.
When the fun and games are over, you’ll have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to party like a Geordie on The Toon at a nightclub hosted by a range of soon-to-be-announced special guest DJs.
Holly added: “There will also be panel shows focussing on mental health. I think we should expect a mix of older and younger crowds coming to the convention – those who grew up with me in Geordie Shore days mixed with the younger MTV viewers.”
Unless you were born and raised on The Toon with big plans to launch a reality star career, the chances are you’ve never had much of a chance of seeing the villa IRL…until now!
At Reality Con, you can witness a recreation of the pad that made household names of the OG cast.
When that’s done, dial things up with a visit to the Hot Tub, an iconic part of Geordie Shore history that proves everything gets messy AF when the temperatures start bubbling up. Ready to tash on? Reality Con visitors can grab a slice of the Ex On The Beach action without being swilled by an ex on national television. With that in mind, what’s not to like about sampling the more luxurious parts of the explosive series?
The chill-out area offers the perfect balance of relaxation and fun, giving you the chance to interact with the iconic Tablet Of Terror before kicking back with food, drink, day loungers, and the smooth AF sounds of a live DJ.
The most exciting part of the event is the chance to see the stars behind the shows. Charlotte Crosby, Joey Essex and more soon-to-be-announced castmates will spill the tea on what it’s really like to be famous, including the pros and cons of living their lives on social media.
Producers will share the goss on what makes a perfectly packaged reality star and the stars themselves will head up classes on how to overcome online trolling in order to live their best lives. The full schedule is coming very soon, with plenty of twists and turns in store.
As for which stars will be attending each session, the full line-up is still in the works, but reality royalty Charlotte Crosby and Joey Essex will be joining Holly, as well as Geordie Shore faves Chloe Ferry, Sophie Kasaei and Nathan Henry!
Love Squad’s Charlotte Dawson and Celebrity Ex On The Beach’s Lateysha Grace will attend, with Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland also joining the line-up.
The event will feature a heap of famous faces from shows including Geordie Shore, Just Tattoo Of Us, and Ex On The Beach, with Charlotte and Joey already on board to attend the experience.
The three-day bonanza is a totally innovative way to gather loads of reality influencers under one roof. Even better, all ticket holders will be given the opportunity to meet and greet their favourite starts.
