TOWIE faves Amber Dowding and Chris Clark – along with Mario Falcone – were among the selected cast members to be axed from the show.
And just days after they confirmed their departure, Georgia Kousoulou’s pal has revealed the real reason her and her boyfriend were kicked off the reality programme.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, she admitted it was all down to her happy relationship with Chris.
Amber said: “We had a meeting and it was a mutual feeling that it was time to move on. I’ve got nothing but respect for the cast and crew.

“Chris and I are in a really good place. We all come to a time in our lives when you’re looking for what is coming next.”
But despite admitting her happy romance meant an end to her TOWIE career, the 24 year old admitted she’ll miss almost everything about being on the show.
“There’s nothing I won’t NOT miss, but I’m looking forward to what’s coming next,” she revealed.
Now TOWIE is over, Amber has set her sights on other reality TV shows such as Bear Grylls or I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! as she wants to “challenge” herself.

Following the news that TOWIE was axing eight of their favourite stars, fans have threatened to boycott the show.
“If the rumours are true and @ChrisJClark_ isn’t going to be in #TOWIE anymore I won’t be watching! ONLY reason to tune in. The rest are all cringe,” declared one outspoken viewer.
“I’m upset about @Mario_Falcone leaving, he’s the best eye candy on the show,” came the response from another.
TOWIE is due to return to ITVBe later this year.
