Toon midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has promised a Geordie Shore star that his side will beat the Black Cats - to save him from a Vegas wedding.
The Newcastle United star has vowed that his team will triumph over Sunderland - a win that Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle will be hoping for to avoid marriage to co-star Charlotte Crosby.
Charlotte, a proud Black Cat, challenged old flame Gaz in a YouTube video where she bigged up her team.
She said: "We all know that Sunderland are a better football team than Newcastle.
"Now, because I'm from Geordie Shore I get a lot of stick for being a Sunderland fan."
She continued: "Gary, if Sunderland win the next derby match, which is next year, you have to fly to Vegas the very next day and marry us in a little chapel, maybe by Elvis."
The reality TV star continued by saying that if Sunderland are defeated, she will get a tattoo saying "Gaz" - wherever on her body he chooses.
Cheeky Gaz responded to say that if Magpies are the winning team then Charlotte's tattoo will be on her forehead - forever.
His video said: "I don't like Sunderland people, I don't like you, so Newcastle will win and you will have Gaz tattooed on your forehead for the rest of your life.
"And as much as you think that you're going to marry me, you're not."
