GEORDIE Shore star Jay Gardner shot to fame for his partying antics – now he’s vowed to show Sunderland a good time.
The 26-year-old, who starred in the first three series of the MTV show, chose Wearside to launch his first club night after being impressed by Union nightclub.
Pizazz will launch tomorrow night at the Holmeside-based venue and will feature a host of entertainment as well as commercial dance and house music.
“I love going out and clubbing and I know what makes a good night out,” he said.
Jay, from Newcastle, is launching the night, which will run monthly, with Mackem girlfriend Chloe Docherty.
He added: “Back in the day, I used to come out in Sunderland quite a bit. I remember coming to Union a lot in 2005. Since then, Sunderland’s gone quiet.
“It’s been, it’s gone, but now it’s coming back. There’s loads of places opening and I think it’s got a lot of potential.”
Since Jay announced the venture on his Twitter page, people from Scotland to Essex have bought tickets.
“I’ve got a lot of projects in the pipeline but this is one of the first big things I’ve done since leaving the show and I’m really passionate about it,” he said.
