James Taylor might have only joined Made In Chelsea in 2018, but he's been involved in his fair share of drama.

He is currently engaged to Maeva D’Ascanio and they have had their fair share of turbulent times on the show - but they always turn out okay, having welcomed their first son, Beau, last November.

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 27, turning 28 in a matter or days at the time of writing. 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.

It has also been reported that James works as a model (when he isn't playing polo or filming for Made in Chelsea).

What is his Instagram?

What is his net worth?

Reports have suggested that James is worth just over £5million, while his fiancée Maeva's net worth falls around the £1million mark.

Where does he live?

James and Maeva swapped SW3 for the suburbs, leaving Chelsea behind as they moved into their £1m Hertfordshire family home ahead of welcoming baby Beau.

When will James and Maeva marry?

In May 2022, scenes were aired of Maeva proposing to James. Later that month, James popped the question whilst the couple were on holiday together in Rome.

Shortly after getting engaged, the pair started the news that they were expecting their first child - with Beau being born in November.

Following their engagement, their initial wedding plans were put on hold as the couple prepared to welcome their first child.

However, the couple did say that they had hopes for a 'Christmas 2023 wedding' - so watch this space!
