After quitting Made in Chelsea back in 2017, Jess Woodley has kept a fairly low profile.

The reality tv star ended up starring in the show for 2 years, and was best known for her relationship with Strictly star Jamie Laing, and later on for a love triangle between her, Alex Mytton and Nicola Hughes.

But why did she quit?


Jess Woodley joined Made in Chelsea in series 9 as an aspiring filmmaker, and was one of our all-time favourite cast members.

But the star decided to leave the show for mental health reasons, and branded reality TV as “identity theft”.

Jess said dipping her toes into reality TV has been a life regret, and has called for people to boycott shows which “destroy people’s lives and mental health for your entertainment”.

The Made in Chelsea star took to social media to share her thoughts, writing a lengthy post on her Instagram page.

In an Instagram story, Jess Woodley wrote:

“A little personal note to anyone on here who may be following me from when I was on a reality TV show. I just want to express how dangerous the nature of mainstream reality TV is…

The affects it can have on human being, to me it felt like I made a decision at a very young age resulting in what feels like identity theft.”
