Marty McKenna has reported a fake Snapchat account to the police [Wenn]
As the resident Lothario on MTV’s Geordie Shore, he’s often seen ‘necking off’ with women in the nightclubs of his native Newcastle.
However, Marty McKenna has come out begging his female fans to contact the police after a fake account was discovered to be asking them for nude pictures.
The 23 year old told the police about a fake Snapchat user masquerading as himself that had been inundating women to send naked pictures and then threatened to post them all on other social media networks.
Marty sent a warning out to his followers on Twitter on Saturday afternoon about the phoney account.

He posted: “My team have been contacted by the Sunday Mirror about a fake Snapchat account getting people to send them naked pictures then receiving threats to post on my social media.
“This account [martymckennaa] has now been reported to the police who will be investigating the issue.
“Please be aware that I don’t have a Snapchat account and would never threaten to post personal pictures on my.
“Not only is this a criminal offence, I am sure I would be sacked from MTV for doing this as well.”
Marty also told his fans to not bother replying to the fake account, and instead to go straight to the police if the account tries to interact with them.
He added: “Please do not send any pictures to this account, if you have followed please block.
“If you are receiving threats from this account please contact the police.”
Marty claimed last month that he’d been fired from Geordie Shore [MTV]
Marty may not need worry about what MTV would have to say about the fake account, as he claimed last month he’d been sacked by Music Television during an epic Twitter rant.
He tweeted at the time: “So I won’t be going back to @mtvgeordieshore as I’ve been sacked according to a few people.
“F***** in thing is a liftin beg from @mtvex. Yeah mate funny how everyone else know before f****** me.”
