Hugo Taylor tells Dan Wootton: Why I'm quitting Made In Chelsea
The 26-year-old, whose complicated personal life has kept us gripped on Made In Chelsea, certainly looks out of his comfort zone, especially when he's asked to bare a little flesh during our photo shoot.
In fact, Hugo's surprisingly shy.
Now loved-up with model Natalie Joel, 24, Hugo tells Dan why he's quitting Made In Chelsea.
'It's a big gamble but I think I might've outgrown the show,' he explains.
'I could wind up having absolutely everything or I could end up with nothing.
'But I've become lazy and comfortable on the show.
'I often look at what I've done and think: "Shit, did I completely sell out?" Staying on Made In Chelsea and bitching about the colour of someone's dress has started to become unimportant to me.'
Hugo is off to train as an actor in Hollywood.
'I plan to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre And Film Institute, which teaches method acting,' he reveals.
'It's expensive and you have to have some talent.
'I don't think they've accepted anyone from reality TV before.
'I was going to leave for LA in September but I'm opening a private members club in Chelsea first, so January's more realistic.'
