Chloe Lewis 'outgrew' TOWIE

Chloe Lewis quit "The Only Way Is Essex" because she "outgrew" the show.

The 28-year-old star confirmed in January she was departing the ITVBe series after four years, and has now revealed she left the show because it is "more important to have a happy personal life" with off-screen boyfriend Danny Flasher.

Chloe told MailOnline: "I'm really grateful for the show, but I sort of outgrew it. I think when your relationship isn't on the show, it's very hard to do both.

"I just feel like it's more important to have a happy personal life, so I just made the decision to leave.

"I don't regret it and I'm thankful for all the opportunities it's brought me, but I just outgrew it.

"When your personal life is not in it, it's very hard. I'm not outspoken, so doing scenes and commenting on other people's lives is just not me. I would find it really hard to go back, so I'm over it."

The reality TV star - who has been with her beau for two years - also admitted she doesn't attend many events with her boyfriend because he doesn't want to be in the public eye.

She said: "It's his choice to stay away from the limelight. If he was in the public eye than we would naturally go to more events, but life is so much nicer having your own time away from it all.

"It's nice to come home and have normality. Being happy within myself, being with someone who is normal and being in a normal environment is so much nicer [than displaying her life on TV]."

While she is no longer on "TOWIE", Chloe loves to watch the reality series and "keep up with all the gossip."

She said: "Weirdly enough, when I was on it I didn't watch it as I didn't like watching myself back, but now I watch it all the time.

"I always try to keep up with all the gossip from Chloe [Meadows], Courtney [Green] and Clelia [Theodorou] and Shelby [Tribble]. It works out better this way, they have an extra viewer."
