Ollie Locke has reportedly quit Made In Chelsea and will leave the reality TV show at the end of this series.

He is the second famous face and original cast member to leave the E4 programme about posh Chelsea twenty-somethings, according to The Sun.

Millie Mackintosh, who is engaged to rapper Professor Green, also recently announced her Chelsea days were over.

A show insider told The Sun: "He's been in the show since the beginning and it will always be a big part of his life - but the time was right to move on."

Ollie is thought to be sick of the show's focus on his sex life and wants to try out being a TV presenter.

The source continued: "A lot of new characters have been brought in this season and Ollie hasn't been in it as much. But he understands, and having rejected a number of TV offers in the past, a few things have come up that are too good to turn down.

"As they were filming the current series, he told his bosses this would be his last and they were disappointed.

"He's had a great time doing the show but is now looking forward to pursuing other projects. He's also become sick of the constant questioning over his sexuality. They really tried to persuade him to stay but he'd made his mind up to go, which everyone respected. There are bound to be lots of tears at the wrap party. He's a very likeable guy on set."

Bisexual Ollie has had storylines involving both male and female love interests during his time on Made In Chelsea.

His most recent relationship with co-star Ashley James came to an end when he told her he had no libido.
