Comment not answer because I am not sure if this will work, but can you not just drag the folder away? –  stuffe Aug 8 '13 at 10:17
    
I tried that but it didnt work, found the answer though, once there a no contact in VIP if you close down your machine, reopen it and reopen mail.app the VIP goes –  sam Aug 8 '13 at 10:23
    
Excellent - you can answer your own question with that (there may be a delay before it allows this) but it's worth including it when you are allowed. –  stuffe Aug 8 '13 at 10:39

I found what worked was to make sure there were no more VIP contacts, then close Mail close the machine down, reopen the machine, and reopen Mail, the VIP section in the sidebar should now be gone.

The way in which to remove a favourite from Mail is simple, highlight the account, for instance if John Smith was a favourite, highlight their name, click on the little settings bar below, thats next to the new mailbox icon, and then click 'Remove from VIP's'.
