The reality TV personality will be seen bidding farewell to her co-stars in tonight's (August 22) series six finale, though she could potentially return for future instalments.
A spokesperson for ITV said: "I can confirm Lauren Goodger will be taking a break and won't appear in the next series of The Only Way Is Essex."
They added that "all the [TOWIE] cast will be reviewed" before the next series begins in the autumn.
On claims earlier today that Goodger is being lined up for Dancing on Ice following her TOWIE exit, the representative stated: "Any names speculated at this stage are pure speculation."
Taking to Twitter after reports of her departure first emerged, Goodger told fans: "Gona throw some lamps at people on twitter 2day cos they need lighten up!Lol!
"Im driving to London tunes playing suns shining and I'm happy x."
Goodger's final episode of TOWIE airs at 10pm on ITV2.
