Made In Chelsea: Latest News, The Cast, Episode Guide and Interviews
By Grazia Posted on 3 Oct 2017
Oh Made In Chelsea, how we love thee. The endless brunches, almost-punches, fiery lunches and Louise Thompson’s daily ab crunches. The E4 series which shows the intricately connected friendship group of London’s elite, i.e. the reality TV stars who throw diamond parties, momentarily angonise over spending £200k on a ring, and flog charcoal teeth whitening kits on Instagram.
Some might say the show is a deliciously addictive blend of borderline aspirational, borderline relatable madness. Its why 80% of our Monday evenings are occupied between the time of 9pm and 10pm, and the rest of our time is spent secretly waiting to spot Mark Francis somewhere in the digi-sphere saying something hilarious about thongs or Topshop.
So, to fill the time in between episodes and to add context to the chaos that is televised life in SW3, here is your complete guide to Made In Chelsea - the cast, latest news, 4OD episode recaps, interviews, the lot. Better bookmark this one because you’ll probably be back…
When is Made In Chelsea back on TV for Summer 2018?
After season 15 wrapped, a handful of lucky MIC castmates popped on a flight to Split to film this year’s summery spin off, Made In Chelsea: Croatia. As one might expect from the title, the SW3 gang have headed to Croatia’s party hotspot, Hvar, for more relationship wrangling, scenic brunches and riverside arguments. As they say, you can take the guys and girls out of Chelsea…
The Croatia spin off lands on our screens on E4 every Monday night in the classic 9pm slot, and once this has ended (sob) we can presume that another series will arrive later in the autumn. In the meantime scroll down to catch up on what you missed…
What channel is Made In Chelsea on and what time?
You can watch Made In Chelsea on E4 on Mondays at 9pm. If you’re one of the few people who has plans on a Monday evening you can catch up with all the episodes (including series one which is a real treat) over on All 4.
Where is the trailer for Made In Chelsea Season 15?
That far behind? Don’t worry, here’s a confusing jungle themed trailer that in no way explains what’s to come in season 15.
Is Made In Chelsea real?
Yes, it’s real. You know, except for the elements that are cleverly manufactured by the producers to create extra drama.
Who are the Made In Chelsea cast?
Here’s an extensive guide to the famous faces of Chelsea…
1 of 24
Alik Alfus may be best known for his distinctive American accent amongst the RP English of SW3 population, and his super long and serious relationship with fellow MIC cast member Louise Thompson (anyone else still mourning that £40,000 engagement ring?), there’s lots more to know Alik than just that, don’t you know.

If I looked up ‘friend’ in the dictionary, I would not be surprised to see ‘Alexandra “Binky” Felstead’ written in bold. Well, only a tiny bit. Here is everything there is to know about the Made in Chelsea gal who stole our hearts right back in 2011…
3 of 24
Charlie Mills, a very recent addition to join the cast of MIC, but who is he? How did he get on Made In Chelsea? What does he do as a real-life job? Is he single? We did some digging.
4 of 24
You see, Clemmie Cutherson is a Made In Chelsea treasure. If you’ve been watching closely, you’ll understand why. If not, we have all the reasoning you’ll need.
5 of 24
How to best describe Daisy? Well. If there was a bar-o-meter for ‘how Made In Chelsea are you?’ with a scale ranging from 0 to YAS YAS YAAAAS DAHLIN’, then Daisy Robins is at the peak. Providing she has the time of course, from all the swanning around Sloane Square in a K-Middy assemble and plotting business ventures…
6 of 24
Self-proclaimed brainbox Ella Willis, has already been fluffin’ and rufflin’ all of the SW3 folk’s feathers and she has only been on Made In Chelsea for about five mins (a series or so). It’s not the impeccable and rather ubiquitous Valencia filter to blame for the dewy skin… Ella is only 19!
7 of 24
Frankie Gaff glows unapologetically (like the stripe on your sports leggings during a spin class or your dear aunt Jen after she fled to a Cotswold’s spa which costs more than your rent). We are gripped by her tumultuous relationship with Jamie Laing (Are they?! Aren’t they?!) and her impeccable highlight.
8 of 24
Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo
Toff is tv gold. From her regular amblings with Mark Francis and Victoria BH, her relatable friendship with Jess Woodley and her brief flirtation with Celebs Go Dating (we were obsessed, okay) the land of Kensington would definitely be a dull place without Toff.
9 of 24
The dazzling Jamie Laing is one of Made In Chelsea’s longest serving members and, is arguably, it’s most well known. We don’t know if it’s platinum blonde hair or his effervescent personality but he is pretty much the sun personified.
10 of 24
Jessica Woodley fast became one of our favourite cast members in E4’s Made in Chelsea, so you can imagine how devastated we were to hear that she was quitting the show (still sobbing).
11 of 24
Josh 'JP' Patterson
The extremely chiseled JP joined Made In Chelsea as a charming boys boy (Spencer who?) but has since been tamed by fellow co-star and girlfriend Binky Felstead. They even have a baby girl India together. SHO cute, right? Well we had a chat with him and made total dicks of ourselves.
12 of 24
Naturally, we have many questions about Julius. Like, how do his eyes look an exquisite pool of triple chocolate fudge cake? Is it normal that we want to record his voice and play it to ourselves on a 90’s walkman to get us through our Sunday evening existential crisis? We will probably never know for sure.
13 of 24
Louise Thompson is practically a veteran at just 27-years-old and is best known for her abs, being the best older sister and getting weepy at relationship problems. Though now she’s happy with the incredible Hulk Ryan Libbey and they regularly gym together. Er, #goals? Kinda?
14 of 24
Mark Francis is another long-serving cast member, who swanned into our lives in Season 1 wearing real Italian leather and snapping his fingers at any high-street clad civilian (AKA YOU). He is as fabulous that Joanna Lumley eating truffles in the bath. As nonchalant as Kate Moss smoking in the Ladies during Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar speech.
15 of 24
From the bikini business she owns to her relationship with reformed bad boy Harry Baron, here’s what you need to know about Made In Chelsea’s Melissa Tattam.
16 of 24
The babein Mimi Bouchard is as charming as Jamie Laing, looks like Toff’s twin (we asked, they’re not related) and is as radiant as Stephanie Pratt. It’s not just the work of a fancy camera, this girl looks like she’s been drinking nothing but matcha green tea and spinach smoothies since secondary school. Sigh.
17 of 24
Olivia was the arty nude photographer who has transformed into a full-blown, strawberry liqueur sipping, ‘dahling’ dropping Made In Chelsea-ite we can’t get enough of every Monday evening.
18 of 24
Though Ollie Locke, owner of the biggest heart and shiniest hair in Chelsea, has said ta-rah to arguing with fellow Chelsea-ites over brunch, we still live with the hope he returns to Made In Chelsea. The glass is half-full, okay?
19 of 24
She arrived on the show in it’s humble beginnings way, way back in 2011 - yep, we’ve been watching the show for that long, you guys. But how much do you really know about Rosie, though? Like, besides the fact that she’s (for the most part) BFFs with Binky and Louise, and can be relied upon to fill those awkward silences with whatever’s on her mind?
20 of 24
Steph has seduced 23 year olds with a plate of oysters, giving zero fucks in the process. She’s had a camera watch her every move 24 hours a day and was best friends with Lauren Conrad for a time. She recently launched a fashion line with Goddiva.co.uk and happens to give pretty good life advice…
21 of 24
Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo
Habbs, real name Sophie Habbo, is Frankie Gaff’s pal and spent a bit of time dating fellow Made In Chelsea co-star Alex Mytton. She also has a depop store that you’re gonna want to go and get involved with immediately.
22 of 24
Sophie appeared on the show a few years ago in series nine as Victoria BH’s bezzie before leaving to take a break back in 2015. Lucky for us, that break is now over. Sophie is back and she’s promised to bless our TV screens with a whole host of fabulous outfits and some witty one-liners. Can’t. Bloody. Wait.
23 of 24
Tiffany ‘Tiff’ Watson may not be one of the Made In Chelsea originals, but she’s sure made her mark on the five or so series that she’s been in so far, amirite? Tears, tantrums, make ups, break ups and the most on again-off again relationship we’d seen since Louise Thompson was in the prime of her dating drama sagas.
24 of 24
Victoria Baker Harper
Victoria’s life is insane. She’s literally euro-royalty. Get ready for yachts, yachts, very expensive handbags, Italians, yachts and the occasional super relatable memes about being really rich.
There are some brand-spankin’ new people who have rocked up to Chelsea and stolen the heart’s of our favourites. James Taylor stole Frankie Gaff’s. The pair have gone on numerous dates including a ‘running date.’ We’re confused, too.
Here are the Made in Chelsea cast’s Snapchat usernames in all their glory - ordered from worst to best on the basis of ‘how much we would we want to spend our Friday evening’s with them, sozzled in The Crown clinking a glass or two of Peroni’.
The Made In Chelsea Relationships You Definitely Forgot About
Boy, there are a lot of these and you’re probably going to feel a bit weird seeing these old couples together knowing as much as we know now. Jaime and Lucy Watson? Very, very weird and uncomfortable…
1. Jamie Laing and Louise Thompson
1 of 9
1. Jamie Laing and Louise Thompson
Remember when Jamie and Louise dated (much to Spencer’s dismay) in 2012. Louise then left Jamie for Spencer, causing a very traumatic love triangle indeed. Poor Jamie.
2 of 9
2. Binky Felstead and Jamie Laing
Binks may have the perfect family with JP and baby India, but remember when she dated Jamie Laing?!? Yes, we forgot too. After years of friendship, the two found it difficult to transition to an actual relationship, so decided to call it a day.
3 of 9
3. Lucy Watson and Jamie Laing
Jamie and Lucy were together for a bit and would even walk their dogs together. Not one for holding back, Lucy Watson has called the show ‘incestuous’ and she ‘no longer wants to waste time with people like Jamie and Proudlock’. BURN.
4 of 9
4. Lucy Watson and Proudlock
Ah yes, Lucy and Proudlock. They were the most swoon-worthy couple in SW3… oh, until Lucy found out that Proudlock was dating other women.
5 of 9
5. Ollie Locke and Chloe Green
Topshop Heiress Chloe Green joined the MIC lot in 2011 to date Ollie Locke. Ollie had previously dated Gabby who he broke up with to explore his feelings for men, only to then end up with another woman. It did not go down well…
6 of 9
6. Rosie Fortescue and Hugo Taylor
When Hugo was dating Millie Mackintosh in the show, he hooked up with her best friend Rosie. Millie then raised her glass to a party full of guests and said ‘cheers to friendship’.
7 of 9
7. Spencer Matthews and Lucy Watson
Spenny took Lucy to Paris in 2013 and we almost believed he had given up his womanising ways. We were wrong and he admitted to cheating on Lucy with several women. Sigh.
8 of 9
8. Spencer Matthews and Louise Thompson
Louise joined the show as Spencer’s (very despairing) girlfriend. Spencer being Spencer, couldn’t stay faithful and resulted in a fair few teary scenes between the pair.
9 of 9
9. Alex Mytton and Binky Felstead
Binky and Alex were love’s young dream (kinda) for two years until his constant cheating became unforgivable. It all worked out well though as she now has the cutest little baby girl with JP.
Cheska Hull Says Made In Chelsea’s Relationship Drama Is All Intentional
The ex-MIC star spilled the beans on how the producers meddle in the cast’s relationships, and what it was that drove her to leave Made In Chelsea after four years on the show.
The Women Of Made In Chelsea Tell Us What Advice They’d Give To Their 17-Year-Old Selves
Do the dazzling Made In Chelsea cast have regrets about their late adolescent years? What would they say if they saw 17-year-old them and had the opportunity to grab themselves by the ears and shout ‘DON’T DO THAT!’ or ‘DO MORE OF THAT, PLEASE!’ The Debrief found out…
We quizzed the one and only Frankie Gaff to find out all of her very best Instagram tips and tricks. Oh and obvs we grilled her on the other Made In Chelsea lot too because we want to know everything. EVERYTHING, PEOPLE.
We have a theory that most of us secretly love a problem. When things are too easy, we get restless and we start mustering up a plan that can only end in doing shots of the Jaeger variety off our ex boyfriends’ brothers’ belly button. Hands up if you’ve ever created an argument with a boyfriend who was so effin’ perfect he made everything feel as monotonous as the Jubilee line on a Tuesday morning? Don’t lie. This is a judgement free zone.
Jess and Toff are our kind of girls; slightly eccentric with excellent clothes and a mostly sunny disposition on life, who we’d gladly meet for a drink in Fulham. And there’s not many people we’d go drinking in Fulham for. We asked the girls some of the questions you guys have been asking us and got them to sort everything out.
We got the chance to hang out with some MIC oldies but goodies Stephanie Pratt, Oliver Proudlock and Francis Boulle at Made in Chelsea Presents and asked them some very important questions. You know the only stuff we didn’t know, like Pret orders, regrets and life quotes to live by…
Who BETTER to ask than Jamie Laing aka Made in Chelsea’s loose cannon who drips charm, pizzazz and mischief where ever he goes. With his CV brimming with hard partying, hangovers and confessing to everyone he loves them, he is the perfect man for the jo. Take notes guys! Biros a’ready!
We caught up with girls to discuss all things music and to create the dream playlist that will cover EVERY occasion. Think sombre Sunday afternoon train journeys to to being in a club shouting ‘ARGH THIS IS OUR SONG’ and combusting into a questionable sequence of stomping and hip-thrusting and everything else in between.
South West London is full of posh personalities, but which MIC cast member is your spiritual guiding light? Are you the darling of DSTRKT, or are you more comfortable at the family compound in Cannes? Take our quiz to find out…
Here are all the best quotes from Made In Chelsea you probably forgot about. Safe to say it’s probably not the sort of material you’ll want be tagging with #MondayMotivation #qotd and #lifeinspo over on Instagram but hey, we’re here for the lolz.
Some of the sartorial sins committed in the name of Made In Chelsea have made us want to bite down really hard on the lemon wedge in our Bloody Mary, lest we might blind ourselves forever. The lads turn up looking like lumpy, sweaty, supermarket workers and holiday reps, if they put clothes on at all. But at least they’re always consistent, and persistent.
After six weeks of Love Island last year, turning back on to Made In Chelsea made us realise how so much of it seems unwatchably uncivil, sexist and cruel.
