Fans of Geordie Shore all over had their hearts broken in episode 1 of the new series.

The show returned to MTV on Tuesday, April 9th for its nineteenth season and although there was the usual radgie antics, there was also heartache.

Here’s everything you need to know about Nathan’s relationship and how the Geordie star is coping post-breakup.

Who was Nathan’s boyfriend?

Nathan was dating Craig Richards.

But they kept their relationship incredibly private and he never featured on the show, as other boyfriends have in the past, meaning we don’t know much about Craig.

We do know they were a very serious couple, who were living together and shared a dog!

When speaking about their breakup to MTV, Nathan said:

You can’t beg someone to love you, and you can’t beg someone to stay with you, so I just had to respect his wishes and let him go.

How long were they together?

Nathan and Craig had been together since mid-2015.

In episode 1 of series 19, Nathan claimed they had been broken up for five months.

We assume they must have parted ways around August 2018 if the filming for the new season was done in January 2019.

What happened with Nathan in episode 1?

Despite his heart-to-heart with new girl Tahlia over their breakups and coming out with maybe one of his best quotes – “If you put trash in the bin, would you get it out again? An ex is an ex for a reason” – it seems Nathan was not comforted by his own advice.

Fans were heartbroken to see Nathan breakdown in tears after the big night out.

Luckily, newbie and real-life bestie Nat was there to comfort him!
