The father-of-two told Chloe Sims on last night's episode that a business opportunity had come up in Spain and he was going to take it, making us think that was it for him and the show.
Thankfully, it seems he won't be leaving TOWIE for good though…
He told The Sun: "My life has always been divided between Essex and Spain but I'm committed to TOWIE and want to carry on with the show.
"I love it and always want to be part of the TOWIE family."
Elliott has already owned a restaurant in Alicante and his two children live out in Spain with his former partner.
On last night's episode of TOWIE, we heard Elliott tell Chloe: "An opportunity has opened up to get a restaurant in Marbella. And it seems now I'm going to take that restaurant and if I do. It means me leaving Essex."
"I don't know if me and you will work out," said Elliott. "I can't say that to you. But I don't want to go over there and look back and wonder what could have happened if we worked it out. All I know is if I do go I'm going to miss you."
