Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi has said it was a "shame", but she had to head home early when filming the new series of the show back in April.

Ex On The Beach is set to return to our screens next month, and fans will see Jess leave the show early. She has revealed that she suffered from "anxiety" during filming and knew she had to go.

Jess said: "It was a shame because I love the show."

Speaking to Daily Star, Jess explained: "I woke up one morning and didn't feel right. I knew it wasn't the time to be in a place like that. I knew it was time to go. I had to think of my health."

Jess revealed that she suffers from anxiety and producers were aware of this. "They were really good about it," she added.

Back in May, it was reported that Jess' early exit was down to her being kicked off the show for having a boyfriend. She denied this at the time, and promised fans that they would get to see the real reason.

She tweeted in response to the claims: "Absolute b*llocks! You'll see soon enough anyway! Broke up with my ex after Xmas! Not something I like to talk about."

Jess was confirmed as part of the all star lineup in June. She joins the likes of Gaz Beadle, Jordan Davies, Chloe Goodman, Jem Lucy and Stephen Bear.

Fans will recognise the reality star from the second series of the show. Jess made her Ex On The Beach debut as Rogan O'Connor's ex and fans saw her rekindle her romance with the Dreamboy in the villa.

Now, Jess is back and this time round, she has claimed she is a "strong, independent woman."

Explaining why she wanted to return to Ex On The Beach, Jess said: "Last time I was a sap," she explains, "and got walked all over and looked like an idiot, but this time I came back as no more Mrs Nice Jess and a strong independent woman!

"Me and Rogan got back together, then he got with a million other girls, then we got back together again, split up again and it was a big rollercoaster of crap."
