Tom has been a regular on the Essex reality show since 2012 but he feels now’s the time to go as most of his friends have already left.

He told The Sun: “After nearly three years I just thought it was time. Most of my friends are no longer on the show apart from Diags.

Tom, who also has a degree in economics, took to Twitter this week to furiously deny he’d been dropped from the show.

A source told the Mirror: “Tom won’t be featuring in the Christmas special and there’s a question mark over his return next series.”

But Tom insisted it was his decision, writing: “Contrary to come articles in the press this morning I was not dropped from the Xmas special, I quit to concentrate on my job.”
