Hugo Taylor told Now: "I'm quitting. It's a big gamble but I think I might have outgrown the show.

"Originally the producers only wanted me as a peripheral character and that's all I wanted to contribute.

"I could wind up having absolutely everything or I could end up with nothing. But I've become lazy and comfortable on the show."

Hugo Taylor, Made In ChelseaHugo Taylor, why are you leaving Made In Chelsea? *sobs* Copyright [Now]So is Hugo Taylor worried about being branded a reality TV star as he pursues new opportunities?

"I worry about it every day. It's one of my main motivations for not doing a reality show anymore.

"I often look at what I've done and think, 'S***, did I completely sell out?' Staying on Made in Chelsea and bitching about the colour of someone's dress has started to become unimportant to me.

"I'm 26 - the show works better with people under 24. It becomes harder to do these shows as you get older. I started thinking I need to do something credible that I'm proud of."

So what's next for Hugo Taylor then?

He revealed he's "passionate" about film and wants a career in acting or directing, saying: "I plan to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre And Film Institute [in New York], which teaches method acting.

"It's expensive and you have to have some talent. I don't think they've accepted anyone from reality TV before."

Hugo's abs on the big screen? Yes please.
