Jamie Laing has confirmed that he has quit Made In Chelsea because he feels too old at 32.

After taking a partial step back from the show last October, the reality star has now confirmed: "It's a classic statement, but I am stepping back 100 per cent.

"I love that show, but also, I'm 32."

Speaking to MailOnline, Jamie added that he was an "all or nothing" kind of person and would not have been happy doing only cameo appearances going forward.

"I would just be on the side, and truthfully I don't enjoy doing that. I want to be in the thick of things, and I can't do that with Chelsea at the minute, so for me, there isn't a reason to do it."

'With a reality show, you've got to really throw yourself into it, and whatever I do, I want to do it to my best ability and put my all into it, and at the moment I can't do that and I have other things I need to do.

Jamie, whose girlfriend Sophie Habboo, 27, is still a part of the series, is now hoping to pour all his energy into his confectionary company Candy Kittens.

The gourmet sweet brand, which he founded in 2012 with his friend Ed Williams, was hit hard by the pandemic, and Jamie explained he was forced to furlough some of his staff.

He has now insisted that he's back on track following a "scary" year in which non-essential businesses were forced to shut.

This came after a hugely successful year for the business.

According to The Sun, the company's accounts revealed that the business raked in a whopping £2million in 2019 alone.

After limiting his screen time on the E4 series last year, Jamie competed in Strictly Come Dancing and came runner-up alongside his professional dance partner Karen Hauer.

He has also been announced as presenter of BBC Three's I Like The Way You Move.
