The Only Way Is Essex confirms Kate Wright is quitting the show
The Only Way Is Essex star Kate Wright is leaving the ITVBe series to “take an extended break”.
After joining the reality television show in 2015 and sticking with TOWIE for two years, Kate has decided to call it a day (or at least for the time being) once the current series comes to an end.
Kate will be taking a break from filming after this season finale and has no date set for a planned return. However, it hasn’t been confirmed whether the star will be leaving for good and so fans can still hope for a comeback at some point in the future.
The Only Way Is Essex released a statement, reading: “Kate has informed producers that she may take an extended break after filming for this series wraps.
“We fully support this decision and will keep in close contact with Kate so we can mutually decide if and when a return is appropriate. We wish her well in her future projects.”
Kate is most well know on the series for her on/off relationship with former boyfriend Dan Edgar, who entered into a scandalous romance with Amber Turner at the beginning of this series.
During the premiere episode, Liam Gatsby revealed to the gang how Amber had spent the night in Dan’s hotel room while filming in Tenerife, despite her being in a long-term relationship with boyfriend Jamie Reed at the time.
Amber later confirmed the romance after she publicly split from Jamie on the show. Speaking to The Mirror Online, Amber said: “Since then, things have sort of happened – even though timing’s really poor.
“It’s all a shock to me as well. Things haven’t worked out the way I thought they would. You can’t predict the future.”
The Only Way Is Essex continues Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
