Sam Thompson has officially quit Made In Chelsea

This is the worst news of 2019

It's been revealed that Sam Thompson has quit Made In Chelsea after six years of being on the show. He will not be back for the new, 17th series.

In an interview with Heart, Sam said he's chosen to leave the series after struggling to deal with his recent break-up from co-star, Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo.

Him and Habbs were together for around six months, and he said in the interview: "Getting dumped all the time was chipping away at my confidence."

He also said that it's not the same on the show anymore, now that some of the older cast members are leaving. He said: "You don't want to be around your ex. Everyone on there is now more her friend, and a lot of my friends have upped and left.

"[MIC] takes your soul, you are so invested in it as it is your real life."
