MTV Is Bringing Back Legendary Celebrity Cribs For 2019

Is there absolutely anything better than having a good old snoop around someone's gaff? It's one of the main reasons I watch Homes Under The Hammer, Grand Designs and Escape To The Country. I'm also guilty of trawling through Rightmove for houses waaaay out of my price range of a measly tenner.

So the news that MTV are bringing back Cribs has come as music to my ears, light to my eyes and a cold bev to my mouth. This is where the real magic happens.


The legendary show took viewers around the mansions of the rich and famous including the likes of Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, Naomi Campbell and Richard Branson.


They will start by looking around some of the Geordie Shore crew's houses - and that will be available from 25 February on YouTube and will be called Geordie Cribs. Pretty self explanatory innit?

The proper episodes will be 30 minutes long, there will be eight of them and filming will start in Spring. So, Hollywood better get Mrs Hinchin' their cushions pronto.


Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, vice president of MTV UK, Kelly Bradshaw, said: "With its firmly cemented status as a cult hit programme, Cribs remains one of the most-loved shows in MTV history.

"The new series is set to be warm and funny, giving MTV audiences a sneak peak into how their favourite stars live."

Cribs was first aired in September 2000 and arguably the most popular guest was Mariah Carey who let the crew film her prancing around her New York Penthouse, stopping at one stage to run and then bathe in her bastard bath.

By 2005 Cribs had featured over 185 homes belonging to musicians, actors, athletes and everything in between. The US show ran for 17 seasons with 130 episodes.

We're feeling nostalgic and they better not mess this up.
