It's been over six years since Lucy Watson quit Made in Chelsea (we're still devastated about it, tbh) and now she's finally revealed why.

Back in MIC's iconic days we were all obsessed with Caggie Dunlop leaving Spencer Matthews at the airport, Binky Felstead discovering that Alex Mytton had in fact had an orgy and Lucy putting everyone in their place.

Back in 2016 everyone was devo when it was confirmed that Lucy had quit the show and now she's spoken out on Jamie Laing's Private Parts podcast about why she left the show that made her famous.

"The real reason was, you know that argument with Steph [Pratt]? It wasn't portrayed - in my opinion - the way that it actually went down.

"Then I felt like from that argument it all came about my relationship, how there were things wrong with it and [Steph] started saying things like '[James] kicked her out of my apartment.'"

And it turns out that was the final straw for Lucy.

"[Me and James] were arguing more during that time and I was like 'this is going to make us argue' and then I realised you can't really be in a happy relationship on that show.

"At that point I was quite serious with James so I was like 'actually I value this more'.

"Plus the controlling side of [the show] where you couldn't do other work really annoyed me because I really wanted to do loads more."

Well, it worked out in the end because last year Lucy and James celebrated their first wedding anniversary.
