Georgia Kousoulou felt "so emotional" when she found out Kate Wright was quitting "The Only Way Is Essex".
The 25-year-old reality television star announced she was leaving the ITVBe show last month to pursue other business ventures, but the news of her departure has saddened her co-stars, especially her close pal, Georgia, who has taken to social media to gush about Kate.
The blonde-haired beauty - who is currently dating Tommy Mallet - shared a collage of pictures of her with Kate on her Instagram account, which she captioned: "Thoughtful Thursday my @xkatiewright
Feel so emotional that I'm not going to be seeing your face every day at filming next series , but I know this break is what you need I am so proud of you , Working on your dreams .. & constantly pushing yourself ! (sic)."
And Georgia has admitted she knew the moment Kate - who previously dated Dan Edgar on the programme - joined the popular show two years the pair would be "friends for life".
The post continued: "From your first scene on towie ( bottom left pic) I knew we was going to be friends for life we have had so many laughs , a few crys & deffo a few Beyoncé tantrums but we have experienced so many memories that we will still be laughing about when we are old ! Go get your dreams girl ! Love you xxxx (sic)."
And the emotional tribute left Kate - who is rumoured to be dating former professional footballer Rio Ferdinand - in tears.
In response to the sweet post, she wrote: "OMG this has just made me cry !!!! I love you to bits my G..... friends for life from the minute u shared your make up with me on my first day but u aren't escaping me that easy, I'll be seeing u all the time my bestie (sic)."
