Jack Fincham has reportedly pulled out of appearing on the next series of MTV's Ex On The Beach in order to pursue his boxing ambitions.
The 29-year-old former Love Island contestant had been in line to join the cast of the reality show, which is being filmed in Colombia rather than Europe, alongside his ex-girlfriend Chloe Brockett for the new series.
According to The Sun, however, Fincham had to withdraw from the lineup after filming was pushed back by a few months due to coronavirus as the new dates clashed with a proposed boxing match.
"Jack was ready and raring to go for Ex On The Beach," a source told the newspaper. "However COVID-19 restrictions have made filming difficult and bosses had to change the dates earlier this month.
"It means the production will take place in May and June in Colombia now, rather than next month as they had planned.
"Jack was faced with a decision to either go on the show or take part in a really important boxing match and he's chosen his career.
"He has been working tirelessly back in the ring and wants to make a success of his career.
"Jack knows this is far more important than going on a TV show and there will be other chances."
