Dan Osborne has been SACKED by The Only Way Is Essex and will not be back on future shows.
Dan was suspended from TOWIE earlier this year following the release of a foul mouthed and threatening rant at his ex-girlfriend.
Dan issued a statement in response to the climb the clip, saying: "I am unable to talk about the difficulties with my current family situation but I am taking steps to resolve it to achieve the best outcome for my son. I am ashamed and embarrassed that I allowed myself to reach such a dark place that I behaved in a way that even I didn't recognise. "
Dan insisted that the outburst was out of character and explained: "There are always two sides to every story and all of my friends and family who are close to me know that I’m not a violent person capable of anything like this. My words were said in anger and desperation at a very difficult time."
He went on to add: "I'm also very sorry to everyone at TOWIE that I have let down and thank them for their understanding and support while I take a short break to concentrate on my family."
It had been reported that Dan was set to return to the ITVBe series after his suspension but no bosses have revealed he WON'T be back.
A spokesperson confirmed: "Dan was suspended during the last series of TOWIE, and Lime Pictures and ITV have since decided he will not be returning to the show. We wish him luck in the future."
The new series of TOIWE will air in the summer.
