After ten years, Made In Chelsea is still going strong - and good news for fans, as the next series is kicking off tonight on E4. And from the trailer, it seems like there's going to be even more break-ups and make-ups. Maeva D'Ascanio {:rel=nofollow}and James Taylor appear to be on the rocks, and a newly-single Liv Bentley is navigating life following her split from co-star Tristan Phipps.

The latter split after the end of last series, as viewers saw cracks in their relationship when the cast were living together - in fancy mansions - during filming for last series. In June, Liv made the sad announcement to her Instagram followers that the pair were no longer together. Now, Liv is now living with castmate Robbie Mullett. And while the reality star says she's on speaking terms with Tristan, she tells Grazia that it's not the most amicable relationship.

'It is pretty awkward,' she says. 'Tristan and I obviously broke up just after the last series finished. [We go into this] series obviously not together. We're sort of on talking terms, but not in a very friendly way, so yeah it's super awkward. And it's not easy very seeing each other, I suppose.' So, some awkward encounters ahead, then.

Liv also hints there's going to be some 'drama' ahead with some of her close mates this series, but says she became closer to Robbie and newbie Inga Valentiner. 'I actually got really close with Inga and Robbie, and he ends up moving in with me, because I find it really hard,' she says. Understandably, the two were huge supports for Liv in the aftermath. 'When I've gone through a breakup. I find it really hard being around people who are in relationships, and Inga's single but she's obviously a great person,' she says, 'so I probably hang out with her the most.'

The rest of the series might be more unpredictable, but following her split with Tristan, don't expect to see Liv on any dates this season. 'Do I date on this series? Absolutely not, I just didn't want to, I wasn't ready to - I think it would have been hard too,' she says. 'People say to get over someone get under someone, but that's never worked in the past.'

Made in Chelsea returns tonight at 9pm on E4.
