Geordie Shore star James Tindale has revealed that "pulling girls" on the MTV how has become like a "military operation".
The 30-year-old reality star joined the series when it first aired back in 2011 and has become a fan favourite over the last decade.
Fans are used to watching the stars "tashing on" in the clubs and taking them back to the "s**g pad" – but things are not as easy as they were back in the day.
James told Daily Star: "As the shows went on over the last few years there's been more behind the scenes rules put in place, even before Covid.
"During the first series you could walk up to someone, talk to them and you'd ask them if they wanted to go back to the house and they'd sign a form and that would be it.
"Now, if you want to meet someone on a night out it's near enough impossible, it's luck if you do."
The hunky fitness coach went on to explain the strict protocols in place in order for the cast members to take guests back to the famous Geordie Shore house.
He said: "If you find someone that you're attracted to you tell the producers.
"They then have to go and check with them that they are happy to be on camera, sign forms and there's rules in place of what jobs people are allowed to do.
"If they've got certain jobs they physically can't be on camera.
"You've also got to know how many drinks people have had. It's like a military operation to pull on Geordie Shore now."
James added that some co-stars have been left fuming after their saucy sex scenes were cut from the show.
He said: "I've had scenes when I've been with a girl all night and you take the girl back to the house, have a mint night and the next day they say 'I've been speaking to my parents or my friends and I don't think I want to be shown on Geordie Shore.'
"They cut the whole night of that person off. So you could have been with someone all night but they withdraw consent.
"It happened to Ant [Kennedy] and Louis [Shaw] last series and they were gutted because they thought people watching were going to think they can't pull."
James went on reveal that the strict rules have put him off trying to woo any ladies on a night out while filming.
"I hardly bother now. I go out and have a laugh with the cast and just whatever happens happens because it's not worth putting your time into someone if that's going to happen," he said.
"It's happened to me for like five series."
Geordie Shore will mark its 10-year anniversary in style later this year, and James has revealed his hopes for the whole gang to get back together again to celebrate the milestone.
He said: "We were meant to be going to Colombia to do it, which would have been amazing, but Geordie Shore fans don't need to worry because something else is planned as well as the reunion happening.
"I don't really know who's definitely coming in and who's not but I would love to see everyone there because we all went through the same start as each other.
"Even if people just come in for a day or just to show their face. They don't have to stay for the whole time."
He added: "I think for the fans who've grown up watching Geordie Shore it would be good to have everyone there."
When he's not filming Geordie Shore, James is busy coaching men and women to unlock their ultimate bodies.
