Jamie Laing, a veteran in the world of reality TV, has announced his departure from the hit E4 series after a decade on our screens.

Joining the show back in 2011 and quickly rising to fame as one of the predominant cast members for his cheeky nature, ever-changing love life and ability to constantly find himself in the centre of drama, Jamie became one of MIC’s leading stars in record speed.

Starring in the show both in the UK and abroad in its various summer locations which included NYC, Argentina, Ibiza and the South of France to name a few, Jamie has been an integral part of the show but now, he’s bidding it farewell.

“It was an amazing experience and I loved it and I have a huge amount of respect for everyone that creates that show but for the moment I am stepping back from it,” he told the Mail Online.

Continuing, he added that if he can’t commit to the show 100 percent than he doesn’t want to do it and right now, he just doesn’t have the time.

“I would just be on the side and truthfully I don’t enjoy doing that, I want to be in the thick of things and I can’t do that with Chelsea at the minute so for me there isn’t a reason to do it.”

Now, in a relationship with fellow Made in Chelsea star Sophie Habbo, it looks as though Jamie, similar to his once co-star Spencer Matthews is enjoying life all coupled up and instead, wants to focus on other career ventures.

With his own sweet company Candy Kittens, as well as different TV appearances and collabs, Jamie is one busy man, with Made In Chelsea feeling like something he has grown out of.

“It’s a classic statement but I am stepping back 100 per cent. I love that show but also I’m 32,” he added.

Well, we’re sad to see him go, that’s for sure. But we are excited to see what he does next.
