A representative confirmed in a statement on Tuesday: 'In the last few days Jack Maynard has been the subject of a succession of media stories.

'Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far.'

He apologised and said he was 'ashamed after it was revealed he had repeatedly used the the n-word and homophobic slurs in tweets posted between 2011-2013.
