The 25-year-old confessed she has been thinking about quitting when speaking on the red carpet at the National Television Awards in London last night (20 January).

Opening up to the Daily Star Online, she said: "I would never completely close the door on TOWIE but I do think it's time for me to move on, I wanna explore other things."

Since her stint on I'm A Celebrity, Ferne has been trying her hand at presenting and has been seen taking over the showbiz segment on This Morning, as well as, presenting on Capital FM with her former campmate George Shelley.

Reports surfaced in December suggesting Ferne could find herself with a permanent slot on Capital. Lisa Snowdon has quit the breakfast show after seven years on air and it's said Ferne has interviewed to replace her and join Dave Berry on the radio station.

Ferne revealed yesterday that she also has work lined up when it comes to books and film too.

Sounds like she's in demand!

If she does leave TOWIE, there's no doubt fans will be sad to see her go. Her straight-talking person has seen her become an Essex favourite, right?

Ferne's latest comments come as she reunited with her I'm A Celebrity campmates at yesterday's swanky awards.

And it was a successful evening for I'm A Celeb, as not only did the show's hosts Ant and Dec bag the award for Best TV Presenter for the FIFTEENTH time, I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! was crowned best entertainment programme.

On the night, Ferne shared a series of Snapchat which saw her getting close to Union J singer George Shelley, as he greeted his pal with a cute peck on the cheek.

However, the pair have dismissed any romance rumours between them, with Ferne recently insisting she and George are just "really good friends."

Ferne was most recently linked to Ex On The Beach star Rogan O'Connor, but a rep for the starlet has since confirmed there is nothing romantic going on between the pair.
