Following reports she was bowing out of the Newcastle gang's crazy antics after five years on the MTV reality show, the 26-year-old star has logged on to Twitter to announce she is permanently leaving.

Marnie cites the departure of many of her friends, such as Charlotte Crosby, as the reason for her exit.

She tweeted her 1.07 million followers: "For everyone keep asking I have in fact permanently left Geordie shore, it was just time to move on, it just wasn't the same without everyone who left and I made the decision to leave, it was a wild 5 years and I'm really thankful I got to do it! [sic]"

The busty brunette - who previously enjoyed romances with her co-stars Ricky Rayment, Aaron Chalmers and Scotty T in front of the cameras - is now focused on new TV opportunities and settling down to domestic bliss with her boyfriend Casey Johnson.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star recently moved in with 22-year-old Casey Johnson and she has admitted her mind has turned to the pitter-patter of tiny feet as she wants to become a mother.

Marnie recently said: "He'd like one now but I'm going to wait. I think 27 would be a good age. I've always wanted a little boy - I think it's because my family are all girls. Maybe next year."
