Who is Scotty T?

Scotty was born Scott Timlin in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in April 1988 and was raised by his mother Gill Baxter after his parents split up.

He is close to his father who now lives in Tenerife, where Scott lived for about eight months.

He was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age.

How did Scotty get into reality TV? What shows has he been on?

The former club promoter joined MTV show Geordie Shore for the fourth series on 2012 – the highest rated series to date.

He soon became a hit with fans as one of the alpha males of the group and soon cemented his position as a ladies’ man.

While on the show, other reality TV shows beckoned and he appeared on the fourth series of MTV show Ex on the Beach which was filmed in Portugal.

Then, in 2016, he became a Celebrity Big Brother housemate on the seventeenth series and was declared the winner, the second Geordie Shore star to win the show after Charlotte Crosby in 2013.

What about Scotty T’s reputation with the ladies?

During his time on Geordie Shore, Scott has had flings with the majority of his co-stars including Marnie Simpson and Holly Hagan, as well as a snog with Charlotte Crosby.

He dated Ashleigh Defty for two years before he signed up for Geordie Shore and they drifted apart.

But they grew close again when they both appeared on the same series of Ex on the Beach.

Scott was dating former Miss Newcastle Francesca Toole, they briefly split after it was reported that he had a secret meeting at a Manchester hotel with married glamour model Katie Price, which he denied and they got back together.

However they have now split for good after just over a year together – despite him saying he “would love to marry her” in October.

When did Scotty T appear in Neighbours?

The sixth series of Geordie Shore was filmed in Australia and soon attracted a fan base Down Under.

So much so that Scott was asked to film a cameo appearance on the long-running soap Neighbours, which aired in the UK and Australia June 2016.

In the scene, Scotty is in a park training and sees character Aaron Brennan, played by Matt Wilson, attempting to do some sit ups on a bench.

He recognises Scotty from the reality TV show and they stop for a chat – but most of it gets lost in translation.

But his appearance proved to be a hit with bosses and he has been invited back.
