Zara McDermott has revealed she has quit Made In Chelsea after two series on the show.
The 24 year old joined her boyfriend Sam Thomson, 28, on the hit E4 reality show when he returned to the cast in 2019.
Former Love Island star Zara's time on the show saw her entangled in a dramatic storyline where it came to light that she had cheated on Sam in the early days of their relationship.
The pair temporarily split last year, with their break up heavily featured on the show, and Zara has now decided to step away from reality TV.

She confirmed the news after creating a documentary on revenge porn after first becoming a victim of the sexual offence at the age of 14.
Zara was then targeted again at the age of 21 when she left the Love Island villa to find that her ex-boyfriend had spread naked images of her on the internet.
Discussing how the documentary helped her decide to quit Made In Chelsea, Zara said: "I’ve left. Sam's still in.
"I would like to do more documentaries. I'm bursting with ideas. I think I surprised myself — I was obviously nervous, a year ago. I enjoyed that gratification of helping people.
"That's my goal for this year and next year. No more reality TV, it's hard on the soul," she continued to tell The Sun's TV Mag.
A source recently told new magazine that Zara "hates people bringing up the past" and wishes fans would let her and Sam "move on".

The insider said: "Zara hates when people bring up the past. Every time she sees a comment about the cheating, it makes her feel sad. It still hurts her to be labelled a cheat. She knows it's hurtful for Sam too and just wishes people would let them move on."
Negative comments appeared online after Sam gushed about Zara to his 1.2 million followers on Valentine's Day by posting a photo of her and writing: "I still wake up thinking it's a dream. I love you."
One user wrote, "Hope it stays this way," while another added, "Nope Sam, it wasn't a dream, she really did run off with that X Factor producer."

Sam was quick to respond, insisting: "Some people are p***ks, and that's the way it will always be. Instead of spouting a useless saying, it's much more effective to just accept that some people are w****rs and move on."
The source added: "Zara was obviously thrilled that Sam stood up to the trolls and protected her but it's still a low blow.
"She was at a really low ebb at that time in her life and she and Sam have since moved on. She's gone above and beyond to win Sam back and just wishes people would let them be. She fears people will never let her forget that she cheated."
