Inside Geordie Shore Scotty T’s wild career from drug abuse to selling nude pics
Scotty T is one of Geordie Shore's most iconic stars.
Despite not being in the original cast of the hit MTV series, Scott quickly became a household name thanks to his wild antics and hilarious one liners.
Scotty T – whose real name is Scott Timlin – joined Geordie Shore in 2012 for series 4 and quickly became one of the family
He stayed with the show as a main cast member until series 15 before venturing out into other projects.
Here Daily Star has taken a look look back at his sometimes troubled career, from his Dreamboys stint to his time in rehab.
Scott was a fan favourite on Geordie Shore from 2012 to 2019, shocking everyone with his wild antics on and off screen.
The star later admitted that his time on the show sparked his drug use, as he started relying on them while touring around the country for appearances in clubs.
He said: “When I got famous on Geordie Shore, everything was being thrown your way – booze, drugs and women.
“While the show was on air, I’d be doing club personal appearances every night and I started taking cocaine to cope. I used to be completely anti-drugs, anti-smoking and despise all of that. But I fell into that lifestyle.
“I suffer with ADHD so I couldn’t drink Red Bull because it made it worse. I was overthinking things and my anxiety was through the roof. I couldn’t even leave the house, it was horrible.
“To cope I’d have cocaine. It helps me focus and concentrate. I was using it every day when I was off the rails and doing PAs up and down the UK – sometimes I was doing three in one day. I didn’t know how else to cope.

In October 2016 Scotty released his autobiography titled A Shore Thing.
The book was billed as an "exclusive, behind-the-scenes account" on everything that went on in Geordie Shore.
In the book Scotty opened up about living with ADHD, coping with the breakdown of his parents' marriage and loss.
He also lifted the lid on his time in Geordie Shore as well as his eye-opening time in the Celebrity Big Brother House.
In a shocking bombshell, the star also revealed that he got a girl pregnant after a one night stand and her having a termination appeared in the media.
He wrote: "A lot of young people go out there and have sex on nights out but sometimes there are major consequences.
"When the girl told me she was pregnant obviously I was shocked but even though I definitely wasn’t ready to be a dad I said I’d support her.
"I paid for her to come to Newcastle and that’s when she told me she wanted an abortion. I was with her every step of the way."

Following on from his CBB success, Scotty was on a constant tour of the UK with nightclub PAs.
But pressures of fame got to him and he ended up taking Class A drug cocaine and boozing heavily to keep up with the lifestyle.
He eventually checked himself into a rehab facility in Scotland in 2017 where he spent two weeks getting clean.
Sadly Scotty later admitted he had relapsed, and took drugs "recreationally" after facing the loss of several close friends and his step-father.
Sacked from Geordie Shore
In January 2018 MTV bosses sacked Scotty from Geordie Shore after he was pictured snorting lines of cocaine, leading to him missing out on the chance to film another hit series in Australia.

However, reports have recently claimed that the star could be allowed to return to the hit MTV series, which is set to be filmed in Colombia.
A source told The Sun: "Scotty is in talks to return to the show – the UK team and the cast especially would love to have him back but the problem is that MTV's US team are worried about the scandal.
"Scotty is a loose cannon and can't be controlled so they don't want to run into another scandal on one of their biggest series that they show all over the world. But Scotty makes great TV and the cast love him."
