Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle and wife Emma McVey are reportedly selling their stunning home in Leeds after ending their two-year-long marriage last month.
The reality TV star confirmed the split on Monday in an Instagram Q&A, after being asked by a fan about the status of his relationship. "We actually separated about 3 weeks ago," he revealed, much to the shock of his loyal followers. Gaz, 35, went on to assure folks that he and Emma are "still friends" and that "there is no bad blood or anything." He also revealed that they have an arrangement to prioritize the wellbeing of their children, son Chester and daughter Primrose.
"We have worked out the best way of doing it for the kids which for me and Emma is always gunna be the most important thing," he explained "We both deserve to be happy as well as being parents." Gaz also said that is now living with his mother, Shirley, while he looks for a new place. It's believed that Emma has remained in the mansion that the couple has been renovating ever since they purchased it back in 2017. The three-storey pad, which is rumoured to be headed for a sale, has a large open-plan kitchen with an island counter, a grandiose staircase and a spacious lobby. The pair regularly posted photos of the house's refurbishment on Instagram, as well as tips and tricks for other interior design lovers.
In an Instagram Story that has since been deleted, Gaz said he'd like to live within "one hour's drive" of Leeds. His hometown of Newcastle appears to be out of the question, as it would be "too far" a commute for him to see his children on a regular basis.
"The house is going on the market even though they spent years making it perfect," a source told the Sun. "Gary has already started looking for a new place and Emma will be too. They decided it was best if they both got a fresh start."
Gaz first started dating Emma in 2017, shortly after his high-profile split from Geordie Shore co-star Charlotte Crosby. The pair had an on-off relationship however, plagued by accusations from Emma that the MTV icon had cheated and lied when they were together. They managed to work things out, however, and in August 2017, they announced on Instagram that they were expecting their first child. In July 2021, they tied the knot in in a lavish ceremony at Merrydale Manor in Cheshire alongside their two children, extended family members and close friends.
