Cara Delevingne is ''down-to earth'', according to Gaz Beadle.

The 25-year-old 'Geordie Shore' star - who was on-off with co-star Charlotte-Letitia Crosby on the MTV reality show - was caught publicly flirty with the model-of-the-moment, Cara, on Twitter about their boozing abilities and is still in touch with the ''f*****g fit'' brunette.

He told new! magazine: ''I've been speaking to her today. She's the most down-to earth person. She's sound.''

Although the pair of them have not met up yet they have challenged each other to a drinking battle with each convinced they will out-drink the other.

He added: ''I messaged her saying she must have a wild side if she's following someone from 'Geordie' Shore.

''She told me I didn't know what a wild side was. I was like, 'Do you realise what I do for a job?' She said, 'If one person can beat you, it's me.'''

Gaz, who had to search for Cara online using search-engine Google to find out who she was after she began following him on Twitter, has a soft spot for her and thinks they have great chemistry.

He added: ''Cara's got banter. I like doing mad s**t. If I smeared ice cream in Cara's face, I could imagine she'd laugh her face off.''

The lothario predicts by age 26 or 27 he would have beaten Bill Roache - who famously claimed he has slept with 1,000 women.
