Kate Wright has quit The Only Way Is Essex to focus on 'new business ventures'.
The 25-year-old, who is rumoured to be dating retired footballer Rio Ferdinand, will leave the ITVBe show as soon as filming wraps up for the current series.
She told The Sun:
I am taking a long break from the show to focus on my new business ventures and an exciting bikini range.
A source added:
Kate has been so busy recently and doesn't have the time to commit to the show.
She is grateful for everything the show has given her but will now be focusing her attention on launching her new bikini line.
She knows that the door is always open for her to return.
The blonde beauty has had her fair sure of drama this season, what with all that rubbish with her ex Dan Edgar, Amber Turner and 'snake' Chloe Lewis. So it's no huge surprise she's decided to take a break from Essex.
You get yours, girl!
