Lucy has already filmed her exit scene from the ITV2 reality drama after becoming unhappy with the way she was portrayed in the show.
A show source told heat: "Lucy wasn't at all happy with the way she came off in the last series. She thinks all the stuff with (her ex-fiancé) Mario Falcone and Tom Pearce is starting to make her look stupid.
"She thinks it's better for her future to take a break from the show."
Lucy has been a regular on the Essex-based show since the very beginning.
After becoming involved in a love triangle between Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger she started dating Mario Falcone.
After getting engaged, the couple split when she discovered Mario had cheated on her with a string of girls.
Earlier this year, the reality star launched her own bootcamp, which she promoted by baring her bum in a series of promotional photos in a bid to sign people up.
