Bad news for Made In Chelsea fans, resident heartbreaker and long-time lothario Spencer Matthews may not be returning.

He's been one of the key characters since the shows inception back in 2011, but Spenny has reportedly quit MIC for good after almost five years of causing havoc on-screen.

A source told The Daily Star: "Spencer won't return for the next series of Made In Chelsea which has just started filming.

"It's a massive loss to the E4 show because Spencer is undoubtedly its biggest and best-known character. Viewers just love to hate him."

Spencer hit the headlines last year when he was forced to leave I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! early, after admitting to taking a steroid-based medication. According to reports, there has been speculation this was also the reason behind his MIC exit - although, that has not been confirmed.

Even before his brief stint in the jungle, Spenny himself had revealed that he planned to move on from the reality show, as it no longer challenged him.

"Made In Chelsea is no longer challenging to me," he told The Mirror. "I don't get the excitement that the new cast experience when they come in and film for the first time."

"I'll help them out. I'm not saying I won't, but I'm not looking to go back to Made In Chelsea as a cast member again," he said.

It's not all bad news, though, as Spencer hinted at the time he's got big things planned for this year.

The days of getting slapped and having drinks thrown in his face on national television, however, could well and truly be over... Sob.

A rep for Made In Chelsea has told Reveal Spencer is "currently pursuing other projects", but made no comment on whether he has left the show for good.
