Robert Pattinson says Geordie Shore is 'greatest TV show'

Los Angeles  - Robert Pattinson says Geordie Shore is ''one of the greatest TV shows'' ever.

The Twilight star has confessed to being an avid viewer of the raunchy MTV reality show, which follows the antics of Gary 'Gaz' Beadle, Charlotte Crosby and Vicky Pattison, and thinks it's one of Britain's best TV offerings.

Robert told MTV.co.uk: ''I love English reality TV. I like Geordie Shore - it's like the Jersey Shore of England. It's amazing, one of the greatest TV shows I have ever seen in my entire life.''

The 28-year-old Hollywood heartthrob went on to insist he genuinely likes the larger-than-life characters in Geordie Shore and doesn't just watch it to laugh at Gaz and co.

He added: ''And it's not really laughing at people because I don't really like that kind of reality TV ... the people in it, you genuinely really like them, it's crazy.''

Robert's love of the hit MTV show follows similar admissions from native Geordie Cheryl Cole and Burn hitmaker Ellie Goulding.

Ellie recently revealed she and boyfriend Dougie Poynter often argue over their TV viewing habits.

She said: ''He will not watch Geordie Shore and I absolutely love it so that's been a big debating point for us.
