This isn’t the first time that Ollie’s done a runner. He first quit MIC back in 2013, before returning two years later.

Binky, 26, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Josh ‘JP’ Patterson. And despite a notoriously rocky friendship with JP, Ollie couldn’t be happier for them.

‘You know all this as some things don’t need to be said on social media! But your going to truly be the most fabulous mummy and I can’t wait to meet the little one! All my love always! @binkyfelstead @joshuapatterson_jp X [sic].’
