Last week, Mel said she has decided to step away from television after her 30-year career because she has ‘grown out of it’. 

In an Instagram post she said: ‘At the end of April this year I stepped away from television after filming 3 different projects on the bounce, which you will see over the coming months.

‘It became apparent that I have out grown it in so many ways which I will discuss in detail in the future.

‘That said, I hope you enjoy the shows. Some are just pure “entertainment”, some important.’

The I’m A Celeb star added: ‘The decision to step away was very easy for me as after two years of being editor of @thefrank_mag I have found my calling creatively & through this I have reconnected with who I am, what I believe in and what I am good at. 

‘I’ve been busy on the relaunch of “Frank” due to go live in Sept. @melaniejburnett & I started out together in 2019 and our working relationship blossoms every day, it’s an extraordinary journey which I am relishing.’
