The Only Way is Essex star Mick Norcross has quit the reality show and banned its cameras from his nightclub, which was a regular venue for the cast.
The businessman, whose son Kirk is a regular on the ITV2 show, runs the Sugar Hut in Brentwood.
He told The Sun: "My club is an upmarket venue where people come to drink champagne and feel spoiled. All these rows they keep filming don't show the club in a good light and I'm worried it's putting people off coming, which is the last thing I want."
Writing on Twitter this morning, Mick told fans: "Don't let the shadows of your past darken the doorstep of your future. Forgive and forget."
The show, which won an audience award at the Television Baftas in 2011, has lost several of its biggest stars in recent years, including Mark Wright and Amy Childs.
An ITV spokesman said: "There are no current plans to film with Mick or in the Sugar Hut."
