‘All Star Shore’ is a reality TV show that brings together the biggest personalities from MTV’s shore shows around the world, and Marnie Simpson is one of the biggest of them all. Simpson is a ‘Geordie Shore’ legend, known for her fiery personality, her love of partying, and her always-on-point fashion sense. She’s also one of the most successful cast members from the show, with her own clothing line, beauty range, and podcast. Then, she took her talents to season 2 of ‘All Star Shore,’ where she managed to convey the same charm and relatability to the audience. We were intrigued by her time on the screen and wanted to know more about her life. Here’s everything we know about her.
Marnie Simpson Was Born in England
Marnie Simpson was born on January 17, 1992, in South Shields, England. Not a lot is known about her parents except that her mother’s name is Sharra Kyle and that she is close to both her parents. She grew up in a town near Newcastle and later moved to the city after completing her schooling. She is also very close with her cousin, Sophie Kasaei, who is also a fellow cast member on ‘Geordie Shore.’ Her journey to fame began in the world of beauty pageants when she won the title of Miss Newcastle in 2012. However, it was her venture into the world of reality television that would truly catapult her into the spotlight.
Marnie has also been open about her health struggles. She had a sensitive bladder, which became chronic in 2016 but was eventually brought under control. Unfortunately, after giving birth, her bladder issues flared up again, causing significant discomfort. Despite trying various medications, she faced ongoing challenges and was in pain for days. However, now, she has good days and has the condition under control.
The beautiful and charming reality TV star has also had some issues with her alcohol tolerance. In an interview with Checklist, she talked about the issues she had been having and how it changed after she had her baby. She said, “Before I fell pregnant, it used to take me at least six glasses of wine to even get even slightly tipsy. It’s nice to not have to go out and have everyone expect you to get drunk.” She further added, “Hopefully my body’s reset itself and my tolerance is back to a normal person’s!”
Marnie Simpson’s Professional Rise via Geordie Shore
Before her reality TV fame, Marnie worked as a waitress. However, it was her stint in the world of reality TV that made her a popular figure. Her breakthrough came when she joined the cast of ‘Geordie Shore’ in 2013, during its seventh season. While her initial appearance was a brief club scene in season one, episode four, she quickly became an integral part of the show’s dynamic.
Known for her eccentric and, at times, catty persona, Marnie became a sweetheart to the audience. Her loyalty to those she loves and her wild yet caring nature made her a standout character on the show. She stayed with ‘Geordie Shore’ until its 14th season, cementing her status as a core cast member. Apart from ‘Geordie Shore,’ Marnie ventured into other reality TV projects. In 2016, she took part in the eighteenth series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ finishing in fourth place. Marnie also participated in the eighth series of ‘Ex on the Beach,’ ‘In Therapy,’ ‘Single AF,’ and ‘All Star Shore’ adding dimensions to her reality TV portfolio.
Her appearances on these shows not only made her a household name but also opened up opportunities for product endorsements. Marnie has endorsed products ranging from lingerie, with her role as the face of Love Honey, to stylish clothing lines like Forever Modo. In 2017, she started selling her contact lenses under the brand I Spy Eyes. The same year, she also released an autobiography book titled “Stripped Bare.” Additionally, she graced the cover of the premiere magazine Heat as the cover story, solidifying her status as a prominent figure in the world of reality TV and celebrity culture.
In 2021, Marnie purchased a stunning 7-bedroom home in Bedfordshire that is worth about £1.5 million. However, she believed that her house was haunted, which eventually led to her making an appearance on the show ‘Celebrity Help! My House Is Haunted.’ The demonologist Ben Winfield told her that she has an “Elemental Guardian” who is attached to her and not her property.
