Ollie Locke has quit 'Made In Chelsea'.
The flamboyant star - who has featured in the E4 reality show since it began in 2011 - is reportedly set to depart once the current series ends and instead wants to focus on presenting after having turned down several offers in the past.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "He's been in the show since the beginning and it will always be a big part of his life - but the time was right to move on.
"A lot of new characters have been brought in this season and Ollie hasn't been in it as much. But he understands, and having rejected a number of TV offers in the past, a few things have come up that are too good to turn down.
"As they were filming the current series, he told his bosses this would be his last and they were disappointed."
Ollie - who, at 28, is the eldest cast member - is also said to be fed up with constant questions surrounding his bisexuality and despite being begged to stay, the tanned model was set on quitting.
The insider added: "He's had a great time doing the show but is now looking forward to pursuing other projects.
"He's also become sick of the constant questioning over his sexuality. They really tried to persuade him to stay but he'd made his mind up to go, which everyone respected.
"There are bound to be lots of tears at the wrap party. He's a very likeable guy on set."
Olly's exit follows that of his co-star Millie Mackintosh, who is rumoured to be quitting after marrying rapper Professor Green - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - in September, opting to join him on tour in the US instead.
