"After five amazing years on The Only Way Is Essex it is time for me to step away," she began.

"I've had the best time and I want to say thank you all so much for your support."

But she promised fans she won't be away from the limelight for too long.

"You will be seeing me soon and I'm also gonna be keeping up with all the goss in Essex," she added. 

Jessica was one of the original cast members when the show first aired five years ago, along with her brother Mark who left the show in 2011.
