Who is Kate Wright? From Rio Ferdinand dating rumours to QUITTING The Only Way Is Essex

The Only Way Is Essex star Kate Wright has rarely been out of the spotlight after being linked to footballer Rio Ferdinand.

And now the 25 year old TOWIE star has QUIT the popular ITVBe show, reportedly telling friends she will no longer be involved.

Part of her decision reportedly came down to the fact she no longer wanted to be involved in drama to do with her ex Dan Edgar.

However, Kate also told The Sun: “I am taking a long break from the show to focus on my new business ventures and an exciting bikini range.”
