The GEORDIE Shore star, Marty McKenna, drew a surprising number of Celebs Go Dating viewers.
The 27-year-old reality TV star made her debut on the E4 dating show, alongside fellow Newcastle countryman Nikita Jasmine.
However, his very strong entrance – which made him proud to speak out about his infidelity and tendency to refer to women as “birds” and “pigs” – did not go down well.
Just minutes into the episode, the girl who claimed to be a “fake expert” was called out by dating expert Anna Williamson.
During his first meeting with Anna and another expert Paul C Bronson, Marty said: “I am now at the stage where I am still in an addiction.
“I’ll be honest with you, I’m not going to come here and go on a first date with a bird and say ‘d’ya wanna be me bird?'”.
American Paul then asked Marty what ‘bird’ meant, and he replied: “A girl, yes, that’s what we call girls in Newcastle.”
After some polling from love experts, Marty explains that he doesn’t think it’s a derogatory term: “I never had any complaints until you complained” and put the phrase this into context.
“If we were at a club and my friend said ‘oh look at that bird, did you shave her?’, I’d be like ‘nah she’s a pig'”. said the star.
Anna wasted no time calling out Marty’s sexist comments, telling him, “It’s a bit silly… You can’t call women pigs.”
The pundit isn’t the only one angry at the singleton’s comments, as hundreds of viewers of the show took to Twitter to discuss it.
One so-called “raw” star wrote: “Banter can be funny and cute but some of the things Marty is coming out are just too raw.”
Another complained about the experts’ decision to found Marty: “Why would they continue with Marty, who just showed what a disgusting human being he is?
“Why would you set him up with any girl #CelebsGoDating“
The comments continued: “Marty and his attitude are revolting”, with one viewer calling him disgusting: “@CelebsGoDating How can you have Marty on this show when he’s shameless women and treats them like pigs, this is disgusting.”
Another concurred: “Cancel that, I’ve never heard of him and his attitude makes me not want to watch this show anymore #CelebsGoDating“.
Anna was also widely applauded for making Marty’s comments: “Anna calls Marty because of the way he talks about women. That’s why I like her no bullshit.”
Celebs Go Dating continues weekdays from 9pm on E4
