The Only Way Is Essex star Cara Kilbey has quit the show.

Filming for series 8 of the ITV2 reality hit began this week, with the show due to return on Sunday.

Cara - who was banned from driving for two years and given community service earlier this month after admitting drink-driving - will be the only high-profile character not returning from last series, The Sun reported.

Insiders insisted her decision to leave had nothing to do with the court case, but that she had been thinking of quitting for some time.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed TOWIE couple Sam Faiers and Joey Essex secretly split at Christmas - but have since made up.

Sam told Now magazine: "We went through a bad patch so decided to take a break."

Joey added: "After two days, I ended up going to Sam's with a bunch of flowers."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
