Kate Wright is thinking about turning her back on 'The Only Way is Essex' now she's romancing Rio Ferdinand
Kate Wright wants to quit 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 25-year-old blonde bombshell only joined the popular show two years ago but she's already thinking about turning her back on the series following a recent blazing row with producers and a fall out with her fellow female cast mates.
A source said: "Kate really hasn't been happy for some time. She had a row with one of the bosses and has a prickly relationship with some of the other girls in the cast."
However, the curvaceous babe isn't planning to walk away from the show until she's landed another gig and is hoping that bosses will sign her up to 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' now that she's romancing retired footballer Rio Ferdinand.
The insider explained to the Daily Star newspaper: "She knows casting for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' begins in the spring and she's knows if she gets picked she could leave 'The Only Way is Essex'."
Katie had agreed to keep her romance with the 38-year-old athlete under wraps, but the cat has been let out of the bag after her co-star James 'Lockie' Lock revealed that the news of the new couple came as a huge "shock" to the entire ITVBe cast.
The loose-lipped hunk said at the time: "Kate and Rio were a bit of a shock to the system for everyone. It came out of nowhere."
Although the 30-year-old heartthrob wishes the pair all the best, he has admitted his loyalties will always lie with Kate's ex-boyfriend Dan Edgar, whom she split from last year on the show, because he's crushed by her dating revelation.
He explained: "My loyalties are with Dan. I'm on side with him. He has a lot of love for Kate and would have liked the idea of getting her back but then Kate met Rio in Dubai so he's been left in the lurch."
It's not known when the beauty met the former athlete - who has three kids; Lorenz, 10, Tate, eight, and Tia, six, with his late wife Rebecca Ellison - but she was last in Dubai at the beginning of January when she jetted off on a girls' holiday with her close friend Danielle Armstrong to get away from men.
