Jasmin Walia has quit TOWIE

Jasmin Walia has quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' after eight series.

The 24-year-old reality TV star - who is dating 'Ex On The Beach' hunk Ross Worswick - has taken to Twitter to confirm she is departing the ITVBe programme, and also thanked the TOWIE cast and crew.

She wrote: "I can confirm that I am taking a break from filming #TOWIE but would like to thank everyone involved with the show, Producers, Crew & Cast x (sic)".

Jasmin started her TOWIE career as an extra in 2010 but got promoted to a full cast member in 2012. She's hinted, however, that she's set to move into the modelling industry, revealing on Twitter that she's working with a "lingerie brand".

She wrote: "Shooting with an amazing lingerie brand today all will be excited (sic)".

Jasmin also recently revealed that she wants to star in a Bollywood movie, and thinks being named 'Sexiest Asian in the UK' has helped her chances.

She told BANG Showbiz: "At the moment I'm doing TOWIE but ideally I want to get into acting and singing, and possibly, I'm working on acting in Bollywood. I would love to do that.

"The transition to Hollywood, I'd love to make that. It's something I just really want to do. I've had a couple of meetings and it did help - I'll just drop this in - I was named Sexiest Asian in the UK. I've been trying to network, and events like [The Asian Awards], it is a great event to network at.

"I'd love to be offered a small part. Even if it's just a small part that leads to a big part."
