She continued, “I left because Sam and Ryan and I decided it just didn’t suit us anymore and Sam was having a really hard time and we wanted a break.
“I’ve learned a lot since I left and really enjoyed not being on the show.
‘In this series I did three setups and I don’t really know how I feel about it … It didn’t feel right.
“It’s hard to do something half-hearted and dip your toe in it; it’s not really for me.

Louise announced that she would be leaving Made in Chelsea a day after her brother Sam said goodbye to the show.
Sam quit the series after his close friend Jamie Laing, 31, started dating ex-girlfriend Sophie Habboo, 26, which caused a break in their friendship for a while.
Five months after confirming his departure, Sam returned to the show and made amends with Jamie, introducing his new girlfriend, former Love Island star Zara McDermott, 23, to the cast.
In a preview clip for next Monday’s show, Sam was filmed confessing to Zara that he was sharing a cab with his ex-Tiffany – a week after Louise caught up with her.

Louise, who lives next to her brother, said, “I think Sam is often an idiot.
“I see him a lot and he has a lot of growing up to do. But yes, we are still very close.
“We actually have a connecting door between our houses, like a secret door.”
Sam’s ex-Tiffany has since continued dating Made in Chelsea star Miles Nazaire, but the pair agreed that their romance is just a bit of fun.
