In 2013, he left the show saying he feared reality television was denting the reputation of his club. He told the Sun: 'My club is an upmarket venue where people come to drink champagne and feel spoiled. All these rows they keep filming don’t show the club in a good light and I’m worried it’s putting people off coming, which is the last thing I want.’
