Kelsey has been axed from the show alongside stars such as Courtney Green and Chloe Meadows in a mass cull.
Best pals Courtney and Chloe, who joined the series in 2015, have been dropped in a huge bid to breathe new life into the long-running reality series after a ratings slump.
Harry Lee, 26, and Clelia Theodorou, 26, are also tipped to leave, while Chloe Brockett, 20, has confirmed she will remain in the cast.
MailOnline can confirm Amber Turner, 28, a divisive figure among fans, is safe, as well as TOWIE pals James Lock, 34, and Pete Wicks, 32, and long serving star Bobby Norris, 34.

Original cast member Amy Childs, 31, who rejoined the series in 2020, will also remain on the show, while her cousin Harry Derbidge, 27, has been given the boot.
Saffron Lempriere, 28, known for her former friendship with Gemma Collins, 40, is staying part of the cast that will resume filming in August.
A source said: ‘Courtney and Chloe are gutted, they thought they were part of the furniture. But bosses feel the ruthless cull was needed to shake up the show.
‘Many of the stars are yet to be told ahead of meetings scheduled with producers today and are preparing themselves for the worst. It will be devastating for so many of them.’

The axing of Courtney and Chloe comes after TOWIE bosses confirmed the next series of the reality show will focus on a ‘smaller group of cast members.’
MailOnline has contacted a TOWIE representative for comment.
Tom McDonnell, 26, who’s close friends with Harry Lee, is also not returning to the series.
Nicole Bass, has also been dropped, in a decision that has left her ‘devastated.’

A source close to the star, 29, who first joined the show in 2015, and returned last year, told MailOnline she is disappointed bosses have let her go after she just rejoined the cast following a six-year absence.
She confirmed on Instagram: ‘I will not be on the next series of TOWIE. I went on to be with Olivia [Attwood] and Clee [Clelia Theodorou] and she got her own show that very same month.
‘My group of girls are not part of the show either. I will miss a selective few though.’
‘Smaller group’: On Wednesday, TOWIE confirmed: ‘After more than 10 fabulous years following the lives of our ever-growing cast, TOWIE will be evolving with some changes’
Ella Rae Wise, 21, has been let go from the series, after having an onscreen romance with Pete Wicks, who is 11 years her senior.

The last remaining TOWIE star to be given the chop is Rem Larue, 27, who dated Clelia. He was only on the show for one series.
