James Taylor might be one of the newer recruits to Made In Chelsea - but that doesn’t mean he isn’t involved in drama. He is currently dating Maeva D’Ascanio and they have had their fair share of turbulent times on the show - but they always turn out okay. Anyway, to save you the trouble, we thought we’d find out everything we need to know about the cast member.

Who is James Taylor?

Joining at the same time as Digby Edgley, Sophie “Habbs” Habboo and Clementine Cuthbertson, his first appearance involved him teaching his mate Sam Prince how to play polo. So Chelsea, darling!

In previous episodes, he gained a bit of a reputation. And this is where the drama begins. He flew Verity Bowditch over to Paris for a date, but then he did the same with Eliza Batten, telling her 'she was the only girl he would ever do that for'. (Honestly, the audacity.) But then it got really messy, as Eliza then found he was still messaging Verity. While he's previously dated Toff, Tiff Watson and Frankie Gaff, he is now going out with Maeva D’Ascanio.

James went to Regent’s University London and studied Global Business Management from 2014-2018. He got a 2:1. He was also awarded a polo scholarship, which is kind of impressive when the uni only give two of these out a year. James has played at a range of clubs including Cambridge, Exeter and even Dallas. He grew up with his mum, dad and three siblings in Saffron Walden in the South of England.

How old is James Taylor?

James is 26. He was born on 9 April 1995. That makes him an Aries, if you wanted that information...

What does James Taylor do?

James' comments about his luxurious lifestyle has led viewers of the show to wonder what he does and about his upbringing. Taylor would brag to the girls of SW3 about his private plane and home spa at any chance he could. So far, little is known about James' parents and their fortune but they do have their own family business. The company is linked to sales engineering and there is rumours that he is set to take over.
