Celebrity Ex on the Beach 2022: Meet the solitary contestant taking part from Newcastle

Only one original cast member will be from Newcastle.

Celebrity Ex on the Beach is set to return to our screens this year, with a whole host of celebrities from all walks of life looking for love on the sunny Spanish island of Gran Canaria.

It won’t be all nice for the contestants soaking up the sun and drinks, mingling with other singles, as they will be joined by a flurry of exes.

The show is set to air later this year on MTV, and is the first time we will see this edition of the show since 2019.

It’s a reality TV lover’s dream, as this year the constants are from Love Island, The Only Way Is Essex, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, and Geordie Shore, just to name a few.

Meet the only person representing Newcastle on the show, as part of the original cast.

Nathan Henry

Nathan is well used to the reality TV show circuit, having appeared on Celebs Go Dating, and being one of the central figures of another MTV show, Geordie Shore.

The popular reality TV show, launched in 2011, arguably hit its peak when Nathan joined, and since then he has become a well liked and integral member.

Prior to joining the Geordie Shore cast, Nathan was a hairdresser, and plied his trade in Northallerton, a village in North Yorkshire.

When he joined the show in 2015, Nathan was openly bisexual, and was the first ever cast member to identify as anything other than straight. However, deeper into his stint as a cast member, he came out as gay and the rest of the Geordie Shore family were totally behind him.

In an admission to MTV, he said his then boyfriend Craig Richards helped him become more open about his sexuality.
