Gemma Collins will leave The Only Way Is Essex.

The reality star is hoping to land her own chat show in a bid to become the next Oprah Winfrey after starring on the show for three years, but in the meantime has signed on for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

A source told The Sun: "Gemma feels she's done her time on 'TOWIE' and is keen to try new things. She believes her profile is high enough to jump ship and go it alone.

"There's even talk she could have her own show with Lime Pictures, who make 'TOWIE'."

Before getting her own show however she's expected to take on some Bushtucker Trials in the Australian jungle for the 14th series of I'm A Celebrity next month.

Gemma is leaving the door open however for a possible TOWIE return, following in the footsteps of Lydia Bright who quit in 2012 but returned earlier this year.

The source continued: "Gemma hasn't closed the door completely on 'TOWIE' but there are lots of other projects she's being lined up for."
