Ollie Locke has confirmed he has quit 'Made in Chelsea' after five series but says he hasn't closed the door on a possible return in future
Ollie Locke has confirmed he has quit 'Made in Chelsea'.
The 28-year-old reality star - who has been part of the show's cast since its launch in 2011 - will leave the hit E4 reality programme after five series, although he hasn't closed the door on a potential return.
Speaking to heat magazine at the 'We're the Millers' UK premiere in London, he said: "I've quit the show. I have done five seasons, I've had three breakups, I've come out as bisexual ... I've done all that and I've decided the party's over for me. But I'll never close the door fully."
Ollie released his first non-fiction book, 'Laid in Chelsea', earlier this year and revealed plans to follow it up by penning a novel.
The newly published author is the latest original cast member to quit the show following in the footsteps of Quality Street heiress Millie Mackintosh, who left the programme earlier this year ahead of her upcoming wedding to rapper Professor Green.
Speculation has been rife about Ollie's future on the series in recent months and it is thought the loveable 'Made in Chelsea' star is looking to pursue other TV projects.
A source previously said: "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."
