The reality TV star is said to have "mutually agreed" a deal to leave The Only Way Is Essex, and will make her final appearance on tonight's episode (Wednesday, August 22), reports The Sun.
"Lauren knows she is not an integral part of TOWIE any more, so she's decided to jump ship," a source said.
"An opportunity to do Dancing On Ice came along and she's jumped at the chance. But ITV are really strict about TOWIE people doing other shows where they are treated as celebs, so she can't do both.
"She hopes the public will see a different side to her on Dancing On Ice, and that she will be able to launch a career off the back of it.
"She's watched Mark [Wright] pick up telly work after he quit and did I'm a Celebrity. She's keen to do the same."
Further TOWIE insiders claim that they are "relaxed" about Goodger's exit and that they are "glad to see the back of her".
Goodger was previously rumoured to be joining the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother.
The Only Way Is Essex series six finale airs tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
