Cara Delevingne has been exchanging flirty texts and phone calls with 'Geordie Shore' star Gaz Beadle.

The British reality TV star - real name Gary Beadle - claims he and the model speak ''every day'' after striking up an unlikely friendship through Twitter recently and he can't wait to take her out on a date.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''We speak every day. She's the most down-to-earth, wicked bird ever. We're total opposites, but we get on really well. We always send each other pictures and videos of where we are.

''During our first conversation she had to correct me on her surname 'cos I couldn't pronounce it. She thinks my accent's really funny.''

The 25-year-old star from Newcastle, north east England, is planning to wine and dine the 20-year-old model when they eventually meet in person - but high class Cara shouldn't a date at the exclusive restaurants she's used to.

Gaz explained: ''When we finally do meet I'm going to impress Cara by meeting her in Maccy Ds getting her a quarter pounder cheeseburger meal, then take her to the nearest bar to get smashed.

''She could brag about her amazing lifestyle, 'cos she's always off to New York and Paris, but she doesn't. She's like, 'I'm in the airport scoffing my face with McDonald's.' That's what I like so much about her.''

In preparation for their boozy date, Gaz also reveals that Cara has been taking lessons from her close pal, pop star Rihanna.

He said: ''The other night I sent her a picture of a bottle of vodka saying, 'I'm in preparation for our night out.' She was clubbing with Rihanna and hit back at me saying 'If anyone can prepare me for a night out with you it's Rihanna.' ''
