TOWIE star Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell revealed that the ITVBe show has been the best experience of his life – but feels like it’s now time to grow up.
The 34-year-old made the decision to leave the programme earlier this month.
Liam joined the cast of Towie as Lydia Bright’s best pal in 2016, and over the years has become a huge fan favourite.
The reality star revealed his plans to move to Los Angeles in a recent episode, leaving his co-stars gobsmacked.
Tonight marked his final appearance on the show.
Reminiscing on his time on Towie, Liam told us in an exclusive interview: “It’s been the best experience of my life and I’ve had so much fun but I’ve done all that now.
“It has been one big party but now it’s time to grow up.”
Over the past seven years, Liam has been involved in a number of dramatic storylines, including his turbulent relationship with ex Dani Imbert.
Despite how it ended between them, he has no regrets.
“I don’t regret anything,” ele disse.

“I was going to say my relationship but it has been part of it so I can’t say that. I don’t think there’s anything I regret.
“If I hadn’t gone through those bad periods in the series, I might not have made the decision to leave.”
Liam revealed that he’s excited to finally make the move over to the US after originally making plans to go before his Towie stint.
Ele explicou: “LA has always been a dream of mine and I felt like there was nothing here for me here.
“Before Towie I had been doing real estate exams already to move to LA, and I remember on my 27º birthday I was literally moving to LA, but I then got the call from Towie saying I was going to Marbella to do the first series.
“All my plans got put on hold but real estate in LA has always been my plan.
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
“Towie came along and took seven years from my life but I’d never, ever regret it.”
Liam has also said that he has no plans to return to the ITVBe show in the future.
