The Only Way Is Essex: Mark Wright and Sam Faiers to quit?

It may be getting its best ratings yet, but The Only Way Is Essex could be set to lose two of its biggest stars. According to The People, both Mark Wright and Sam Faiers want out of the show after the current series.

It'll be the latest change in the show’s cast after Amy Childs quit the programme to have her own Channel 5 reality show.

Both Sam and Mark are now looking at other projects, with Sam apparently set to follow in Amy's footsteps by appearing on the new series of Celebrity Big Brother after receiving an "offer she can't refuse".

"Mark is looking at other projects which are bigger than TOWIE so he will be leaving at the end of this series," a source said.

"He considered doing a fourth series but decided against it as it will hold him back over a year. There is going to be a huge hole left in the series when Mark and Sam go."
