Jessica Wright: I'm not leaving TOWIE!

The Only Way is Essex's Jessica Wright finds it hard having people constantly judging her relationships.

The 29-year-old has been on the series since it began in 2010. It was recently claimed that she had told show bosses that the current season would be her last but Jessica has dispelled the rumours.

"I haven't got a clue where that story came from, but it's all lies," she told British magazine OK! "I have no plans to leave at the minute."

Jessica has had many ups and downs during her time on the show, especially her relationship with ex-boyfriend Ricky Rayment. The couple broke up at the end of last year and he is now engaged to Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson. Jessica admits she does find it hard to live her life on camera sometimes and will be more cautious about broadcasting her next romance.

"I can keep my personal life private to a certain degree, but when you're in a relationship it becomes really stressful," she confessed. "It's hard having people constantly judging your relationship and it can cause a lot of tension and problems. I love being on the show so I shouldn't complain, but that's one reason I wouldn't rush into bring my next boyfriend onto the show."

Jessica was recently spotted kissing Sunderland AFC player Connor Wickham in Marbella last month, but the star insists they are not in a relationship.

"Connor is a really lovely guy and we're still friends but it was just a bit of a holiday romance," she said. "I really don't want a boyfriend at the moment."
