The cast of "Geordie Shore," the British version of MTV hit series "Jersey Shore," brave the cool winds and step into a hot tub on Newcastle's Tyneside to promote their show.

A new accent, a new cast and a new shore.

The stars of the much anticipated UK version of "Jersey Shore" stripped down to the bare bones to promote their new series.

Set in the city of Newcastle in North East England, the spin-off is titled "Geordie Shore" and follows the

lives of eight proud Geordie boys and girls.

The lads and lasses stepped into a hot tub positioned in the middle of Newcastle's Baltic Square, receiving some curious looks from passers-by.

Emulating its infamous American version, the boys and girls will live in a five star house complete with shared bedrooms and a hot tub, while MTV cameras will catch every action as they work for a promotions company during the day and party at night at some of the most renowned hotspots on the Diamond Strip.

The American "Jersey Shore" is the best viewed MTV series of all time, and has turned into a cultural phenomenon in the United States.

The first episode of "Geordie Shore" will debut on MTV in the UK on May 24th.
