Ollie Locke has quit reality TV.
The 31-year-old star – who is best known for appearing on ‘Made in Chelsea’ – is taking a backwards step from reality TV because he wants to concentrate on his acting career.
Speaking on ‘Jeremy Vine’, he said: "I’m quitting reality TV and I’m not going to do it anymore.
"I’m quitting reality TV. I’ve done nearly a decade of it. And I’ve loved every minute of it.
"But I’ve kind of grown into someone else.
"I trained to be an actor a long time ago and I just finished a wonder film with Isla Fisher and Steve Coogan.
"And I’ve got another project in the pipeline.
"I’ve changed everything up and I want to be an actor like I wanted to be when I went to drama school all those years ago."
Ollie made his debut on the popular Channel 4 show in 2011, left in 2013 and then made his return in 2015 as a regular cast member.
He has been on such shows as ‘Celebrity Juice’, ‘Alan Carr’s Chatty Man’, ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, ‘Britain’s Got More Talent,’ and ‘The X Factor’ among others.
The TV star has just finished filming movie ‘Greed’ – which is directed by Michael Winterbottom – alongside Isla Fisher, Steve Coogan and Shanina Shaik in Greece.
Set in the glamorous and celebrity-filled world of luxury fashion, the story revolves around the build-up to a spectacular 60th birthday party in an exclusive hotel on the Greek island of Mykonos.
Away from the cameras, the star is currently planning his wedding to his commercial director fiance Gareth Locke.
The pair will take each other’s namesake surname to become "Locke-Locke" after they marry.
