TOWIE's Ferne McCann and Charlie Sims have reached out to co-star Tom Pearce following his decision to quit the ITVBe reality show.

Last week, Tom slammed reports that he had been dropped from the forthcoming Christmas special, saying he decided to quit the show after two years to focus on his job in banking.

Tom quit the show last Friday.

Breaking the news on Twitter last Friday (28 November), he said: "I was not dropped from Xmas special, I quit to concentrate on my job."

It seems news of Tom's departure is taking a while to filter around Essex, but Ferne wrote on Twitter last night: "@tompearce1 just seen this, good luck babe."

Meanwhile. Ferne's boyfriend Charlie, who has been on a break from TOWIE to focus on his deli business, said: "@tompearce1 good luck mate! Wish you all the best x."

Charlie and Ferne have wished Tom the best of luck following his exit.

Hours after Tom's shock exit, Billie Faiers also exclusively told Reveal: "Sometimes I think – especially with the boys – if it's not right for them anymore, rather than stay in the show and be unhappy, they want to move on. It's probably the best thing to do."

TOWIE's Christmas special will return to our screens next week on Wednesday 10 December. Even though Tom won't be in it, one person who viewers will be seeing is the return of Gemma Collins.

Following her sensational exit after just three days on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Gemma will be making a grand entrance as she reunites with best pal Bobby Norris.
