00:33 GMT, 12 June 2012
After entertaining viewers with their hard partying and hedonistic ways, some of the Geordie Shore cast were treated to a makeover.
The randy and often rowdy stars of the Newcastle set reality TV show are almost unrecognisable without their tattoos and tans on show.
The curvy girls got completely covered in shapeless dresses and the bawdy boys transformed into well groomed gentleman with a Downton Abbey makeover.

In an interview with Now magazine, the cast look better than they ever have, but it's unlikely that viewers will see them in the upper class gear again.
The two shows couldn't be more different and Vicky summed up the casts attitude compared to that of Downton's Countess Grantham.
She said: 'Any time anyone moans about
the show, I always MTV’s wildest ever stars as you’ve never seen them
before say: 'It’s Geordie Shore, not Downton Abbey – if you f******
don’t like it, then switch off!'

Back to normal: The popular MTV UK show has been based on drinking, clubbing and hedonism
Despite finding fame and fortune on
the MTV UK answer to Jersey Shore, engaged couple Vicky and Ricci have already considered
quitting the show once they get married.
Vicky said: 'I’d struggle with it. I’ll never knock Geordie Shore, but that house is a circus and a zoo.
'It’s about going out, banging birds and having fun. I don’t want to put the show before me relationship.'

Vicky is the most boisterous housemate but she seems slightly calmer when talking about how in love she is with Ricci.
The couple, who met during the second series when he joined the cast, have only been dating for six months but, are sure they aren't rushing things.
Vicky told the magazine: 'I think when you meet the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you know.
'I knew within a couple of days of meeting Ricci. I trust him 110 per cent.'
Miss Pattison is even more vocal when it comes to defending herself and her co-stars from criticism.
A recent poll from the Girl Guides revealed that the reality show stars are very bad role models for young girls.
However, Vicky firmly said: 'I personally think the Guides should keep their noses out of our business and put them back in making campfires and selling biscuits or whatever it is they do.'
