Ferne McCann's sad exit from TOWIE
Ferne McCann thinks her departure from 'The Only Way is Essex' is a "massive loss."
The 25-year-old star announced she was leaving the reality TV show - the programme that made her famous - following her successful stint on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' late last year and she believes she'll be sorely missed when the new series hits screens later this month.
She explained: "I do think people will miss me. I think I always provided great entertainment. So I definitely think I'm going to be a massive loss."
However, the blonde beauty is adamant she'll never turn her back on the show permanently and has teased she may make a cameo one day in future episodes.
She told heat magazine: "I would never ever turn my back on 'TOWIE'. I'm Essex through and through. I'm not one of those people who's like, 'I'm done with 'TOWIE'. People have slagged off the show. I'm really grateful to 'TOWIE'.
"I'm taking a massive step back from it, you won't be seeing much of me but I might slip in for a cameo."
