The 28-year-old beauty - who joined the show in 2011 when she was just 21 - wants to enjoy the summer with her friends and family and lead a "regular life" away from the cameras for the next few months.

She said: "I'm not filming this summer because I feel like I've missed out these last five years.

"I want to go to festivals and sit by a pool with actual friends who are separate from the show - just live a regular life for a bit."

Though Louise has enjoyed being on the programme, she admitted her antics on camera have caused her to receive "death threats" in the past.

She said: "I used to get floods of Tweets in the early days of 'MIC', saying horrible things.

"I've even had death threats.

"Someone once threatened me with a picture of a knife, which was really dark."

While she used to be known for her wild partying, Louise - who has been in a relationship with personal trainer Ryan Libbey for two years - insists she lives a much quieter life these days.

She told Closer magazine: "My life is so different now. I go out now and again and have a gin and tonic, but I don't go crazy like I used to.

"Now I throw big dinner parties, there's always a focus on food.

"We've got an allotment and it's quite fun. I don't know whether it will be one of those impulsive things though - I'm already a big bored of being green-fingered, but when it rains I'm thrilled because it waters the plants.

"I do feel so much more wholesome nowadays, but maybe the allotment was taking it to the extreme."
