Jay Gardner is quitting 'Geordie Shore'.
The 25-year-old muscleman has told bosses of the MTV show he wants to leave because he is settling down with his new girlfriend and is worried staying on the programme - where alcohol and girls are on tap - will be too tempting.
A friend said: "Jay is sad to leave all his friends from the show behind but his future is with his new love."
He will leave at the end of the current series, 'Chaos in Cancun', which airs on Tuesday nights at 10pm.
Jay used to date co-star Vicky Pattison - who is now engaged to Ricci Guarnaccio - and she has previously admitted they struggle to be faithful to one another.
She said: "We both want to be single and have fun so we fight our feelings for each other in the house.
"There's been a couple of times we've said, 'You know what, we should give this a go and not kiss anyone else.' But it always ends in disaster."
The group can currently be seen in a special series where they holiday in Cancun, Mexico.
