TOWIE star Tom Pearce has slammed reports that he has been sacked from the show, but has revealed he’s actually quit to concentrate on his day-job.
The 23-year-old Essex boy took to his Twitter account this morning to set the record straight, and defend his image, after rumours that he’d been sacked by producers began to surface.
Tom kept his explanation straight and simple, writing on Twitter: “’Contrary to some articles in the press this morning I was not dropped from Xmas special, I Quit to concentrate on my job.”
His reaction came after a source told the Mirror: “Tom won’t be featuring in the Christmas special and there’s a question mark over his return next series.”
But while many people assumed that Tom was just another star facing the axe, it actually turned out that he wants to focus on his ‘proper job’.
The cheeky chap has actually held down a job in banking while he’s been filming the show, and has decided to pursue a life off-screen in the City of London.
So, with Tom off to the City, it looks like we won’t be seeing him delving into other reality TV pursuits unlike his co-star Gemma Collins.
The 33-year-old recently beat-off the competition from other TOWIE names to appear in I’m A Celebrity 2014, but sensationally quit the show after only 72 hours – recieving a ton of criticism in the process.
But, we’re going to assume that it’s safe to say that Tom won’t be quitting the bank after just three days.
