Locke: I've left Made In Chelsea
Ollie Locke has confirmed he has left Made In Chelsea after five seasons to pursue other opportunities.
The reality TV star said he would no longer be appearing on the E4 show for the time being, as he is looking to do more writing and possibly front his own TV shows.
The 27-year-old told Heat: "I've quit the show. I have done five seasons. I've had three break-ups and I've come out as bisexual. I've done all that and I've decided that the party is over for me."
He also told the Daily Mirror: "It's terrifying to be leaving the show as it's all I known on TV. But I'm thinking about other things and I'm not going anywhere. I will miss every aspect of the show and everyone on it, it was a family."
Ollie said he is exploring other creative options.
"I love the idea of relationships. I bought a book out this year and it did well so I've started writing fiction - my first ever novel I'm trying to do at the moment. We're also discussing shows," he told Heat.
And he also hinted that he could make a return in the future, adding: "I'll never close the door fully but there are lots of other projects in mind and people are talking and calling up."
Ollie has been one of the regular cast members of Made In Chelsea since the series began in 2011, alongside Spencer Matthews, Louise Thompson, Cheska Hull, Rosie Fortescue, Francis Boulle and Binky Felstead.
