However, the star insists that her leaving has nothing to do with the recent drink driving charges which have banned her from driving for two years.

Cara Kilbey crashed her Mercedes into another car before driving off back in January.

The police spotted the TOWIE star driving erratically and even saw the actualcrash.

The police then had to chase her after she didn't stop after the incident which happened in Camden.

OMG.

Despite this, a source has insisted to The Sun: "It was a mutual decision between her and producers. She feels it is the right time to move on."

Apparently, Cara has been 'thinking of quitting for ages'.

*cough*yeah, right*cough*

Still, whatever the reason we will be sad to see Cara go. Just who will her BFF Billie Mucklow hang out with now, we do wonder?
