“You have tuned in and been dedicated fans and together we were able to share the healing powers of design.
The Netflix star continued: “I learned from you all about kindness, love, and acceptance, and that has changed my life for the better.
“The way you have embraced me and accepted me for who I am is something that l will truly carry with me for the rest of my life.”

The Queer Eye star concluded: “It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that season 8 will be my final season on Queer Eye.
“It’s not been an easy decision to be at peace with, but a necessary one. Although my journey with Queer Eye is over, my journey with you is not.
“You will be seeing more of me very soon.”
