TOWIE star to quit the show for a VERY surprising reason

Well this is an interesting plan.

New reports say Gemma Collins is about to quit The Only Way Is Essex.

The reality star now thinks she is too big for the show and is planning to pursue a solo career…as the next Oprah.

A source says: "Gemma feels she's done her time on TOWIE and is keen to try new things. She believes her profile is high enough to jump ship and go alone.

"There's even talk she could have her own show with Lime Pictures, who makes TOWIE."

Gemma has some experience in a small presenting role on This Morning, but we don’t know how she thinks she can live up to Queen O – especially when rumours say she will be heading into the jungle for I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2014.

Oh yeah, that’s definitely something Oprah would do…

Thankfully, Gemma doesn’t seem to have completely lost her mind, and won’t be storming out on TOWIE, leaving a bad taste in her cast mates’ mouths.

The Sun’s source says: "Gemma hasn't closed the door completely on TOWIE but there's a lot of other projects she's being lined up for."

Well her clothing line hasn’t done too badly so let’s see how her new plans work out…
