TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has said that the show is worse of without her.
The 26-year-old quit the show after the last series, and claims the new run has lost its sparkle.
Despite insisting she was only leaving for a break, it seems unlikely that Lauren will be back on the ITV2 show!
She moaned: "I'd thought about leaving for a while because it wasn't as fun as it used to be. It was definitely the right move.
"Loads of people have tweeted saying they miss me and that it's struggling since I'm not in it, which is really nice, but it's still a popular show."
Lauren suggested that the show had changed since it first started two year's ago, explaining: "TOWIE's really powerful thing, and I wouldn't be where I am today or have these opportunities without it, but the show has changed a lot.
"It's different but it's only the start of series seven. Maybe more stuff will go on later on. It's hard since the original cast have left."
The Only Way Is Essex continues tonight at 10PM on ITV2.
