He might be best known for his playboy ways on MTV’s Geordie Shore, but if Gary Beadle’s latest conversation with Lillie Gregg proves anything, it’s that the Newcastle native is a big softie at heart.
During a heartfelt conversation which was filmed for the latest series of Ex On The Beach, Gaz was reduced to tears as he confessed the realities of breaking up with Lillie, whom he had dated for a year.
Despite much speculation that Gaz had left Lillie to reunite with Charlotte Crosby, when asked by Lillie why they really broke up the 28-year-old reality star admitted that he had felt forced to choose between his career and their romance.
He said: “That was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my whole entire life. Our relationship or my work.”
Describing life in front of the camera as “the only thing [he’s] any f*cking good at”, Gaz told his model ex: “I had to pick what I thought was best for me at the time. As hard as that was, it meant leaving you.”
He then apologised to Lillie for how he treated her and her family after their split, an admission which brought both Lillie and Gary to tears.
“I’m sorry for the way I treated you after. I’m sorry if I didn’t message your family because they’ve been nothing but nice to us,” he said.
During the strikingly real conversation, Lillie also told Gaz that the best memories of her life have been with him.
Through tears Gaz replied: “You made me realise that there’s more to life than what I was doing.”
“People who say I’ve changed, it’s because of you. I can never thank you enough for that.”
Since splitting with Gaz late last year Lillie has been linked with Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear but now that that relationship has come to a dramatic end, could a reunion be on the cards for Gaz and Lillie?
For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
