TOWIE stars have revealed co-star Jordan Brook quit filming in Thailand and returned to the UK – saying: "it all got too much for him".
The ITVBe cast – including favourites like Chloe Brockett, Harry Derbidge, Junaid Ahmed and Saffron Lempriere – flew out to Thailand in February to film the new series.
The episode kicked off in spectacular fashion with a string of arguments, fallouts and even a love triangle.
But it has now been revealed that Jordan left Thailand early and headed back to the UK without his fellow cast members.
The Essex lad, 25, even skipped his own birthday party – leaving his co-stars to celebrate without him.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Harry said: "The most dramatic bit hasn't even happened yet – you have a lot more to come," while Junaid teased: "A lot more rows."

Saffron told us: "Jordan leaves – he heads back to Essex. I got all too much. He went to Heathrow.
“We celebrated his birthday out there without him – I walked around with a cardboard cut out – I didn’t mind it.
"He left the Island very quick, too many of his pretend exes were there apparently. He ran."
She added: "He didn’t get along with a lot of people last year, they edited that out.

"He weren’t friends with a lot of people. He had a lot of emotions in the Dominican, he was crying to me a lot about being alone and wanting to go home. And I was good friend to him."
Jordan – who had an explosive argument with Chloe Brockett before flying out to Thailand – may have ruffled a few feathers while filming in Thailand.
Chloe explained that she tried to avoid the barber while out there – branding him "untrustworthy".
The stunning brunette said: "I find it really frustrating when they call me his ex-girlfriend, we never dated, we were never together.
"That's the thing that annoys me the most as I try and keep my distance from Jordan as I can mostly because I don't deem him as someone who is trustworthy and I worry anything I do or say near him could be spun."
After dating a number of the Essex girls, Jordan has since foundfound love with Geordie Shore star Sophie Kasaei.
Harry continued: "I think he wanted to go back home to Sophie [Kasaei] – it was his birthday and wanted to be with her."
Sophie made her debut on the reality show earlier this month and was introduced to a number of the Towie cast.The Newcastle babe and the hairdresser has since taken their relationship to the next level and moved in together.
"He's happy and they are a good match and I wish him the best," Harry said about the new couple.

Saffron added: "I met Sophie later in the series, nice girl but she's never going to be an Essex girl and I'm never going to be a Geordie."
