Oh Made In Chelsea, how we love thee. Can you believe the show is approaching it's 23rd season? Neither can we. 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?
E4 recently announced that Made in Chelsea is returning to our screens on Monday 4th April. We are back to regular programming at Kings Road after a few previous series were filmed elsewhere due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Remember series 21 in the Cotswold? That series was still just as iconic - who could forget Sophie Herman's beloved mink or Julius attempting to serenade every girl at any given opportunity?
Series 23 is back with a bang according to fan favourite Maeva D'Ascanio. She tell's Grazia this series will be the most 'explosive' yet. Cant wait! Over the break we've had engagements ( Tiffany Watson and Sophie 'Habbs' Herman and Jamie Laing). We've had make ups (Ruby Adler and Reza Amiri-Garroussi) and breakups (Tristan Phipps and Olivia Bentley). Looks like we have an eventful series ahead...
Here is a sneak peak at series 23. Watch below:
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.
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.
What will happen in Made in Chelsea Series 23?
As ever - it is impossible to tell with this cast, things constantly change and the drama never stops. However, last series we were left with a cliffhanger - will Ruby and Miles get together? But, this has been answered by the trailer. Ruby and Reza are back together so, we wonder how that will all play out with Miles Nazaire and the 'tricep trio'? All eyes will be on Emily Blackwell and Harvey Armstrong and Olivia and Tristan after their break ups. From the trailer it looks like we will see some rising tension between Verity Bowditch and Inga Valentiner over Sam Prince...
Who are the Made In Chelsea cast?
The current cast of Chelsea famous faces include...
The Debrief Made In Chelsea Cast
Sophie first appeared on the show many moons ago in series nine as Victoria BH's bezzie before leaving to take a break back in 2015. Lucky for us, that break is long 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. Last series her relationship with DJ Tom Zanetti was the talk of the town and her one liner, 'You're spitting on my mink,' will go down in Made In Chelsea History.
Ollie Locke, owner of the biggest heart and shiniest hair in Chelsea, has said ta-rah to arguing with fellow Chelsea-ites over brunch as he settles down with husband Gareth Locke. Their wedding was the talk of Chelsea last series, and this series we get an insight into the couples surrogacy journey.
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. Her relationship with Tristan Phipps has been more on and off than a light switch, but we love her sassy one-liners all the same.
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.
Tiffany 'Tiff' Watson may not be one of the Made In Chelsea originals, but she's sure made her mark in the 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. However, more recently she seems more settled in her relationship with off screen boyfriend footballer Cameron McGeehan.
Miles Nazaire joined the series back in 2018. Since then he's established himself as a Made in Chelsea fave. He has a bromance with the tricep trio and was certainly in the thick of the drama last series. All fans are wondering is what happened with him and Ruby? I guess we will find out soon..
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.
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.
Habbs, real name Sophie Habbo, was introduced as ex- cast member's Frankie Gaff's pal and is now dating ex fan fave Jaimie Laing. She also has a depop store that you're gonna want to go and get involved with immediately.
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. She recently took a break from Made in Chelsea after giving birth
Ruby Adler was introduced to the series as Reza Amiri-Garroussi's girlfriend. However the big drama of last series saw the pair split and Ruby set her sights on co-star Miles Nazaire. Will they, won't they.. we will have to wait and see.
Reza Amiri-Garrousi made his first appearance in series 18 and many thought that would be the last we saw of him, but it seems not! Sam Thompson brought his pal back last year and he has been in the heat of the drama ever since.
Tristan is currently dating Liv Bentley although their relationship is on and off - they seem happy now. He has also dated fellow co-star Verity Bowditch ( which did not end well) and Ella Wills. He used to be a walking safari guide, working at the Kruger National Park. He then worked as a South Africa travel specialist.
Maeva D'Ascanio has made her mark from the second she appeared on her screen. Her loud, brash and straight talking personality mixed with her French roots has been tv gold! Her turbulent relationship with co-star James Taylor and lingering feelings for ex Miles Nazaire has always taken centre stage in previous series, we wonder what's next...
He is another member of the tricep trio and the healer amongst the group. Fredrik is a friend to everyone and is all about positive vibes. Apart from roaming the streets of Chelsea, Fredrik is a singer/songwriter, a career he's busy working on now.
Harvey is currently dating fellow cast mate Emily Blackwell, after they spent lockdown together. It caused a bit of drama at the time, as Emily was mates with Habbs. (Keep up?!) Sophie and Harvey were together for three years, and he said she was his first love. Emotional!
Now, if you don't know this guy you must live under a rock! He is a MIC legend. From his turbulent relationship with co-star Tiffany Watson to his bromance turned feud with Jamie Laing and Habbs - has made him a fan fave. He is also the very lovable brother of ex- MIC star Louise Thompson. If his Instagram video's are not enough to make you die of laughter - his bubbly personality on the show sure will.
Over the past couple of years, Verity Bowditch has become one of the main cast members on Made in Chelsea. And during her time on the show, she's sure had a dramatic time. She was dating former co-star Tristan Phipps - who is now seeing Liv Bentley - and she was briefly seeing Love Island's Charlie Frederick, who featured on the last series.
Paris is still fairly new to the show and is still finding her feet. She is a model and a socialite, so fitted in perfectly with the Chelsea crew. She's also on the show via a close friendship with ex co-star Amelia Mist.
The reality star joined the show during series 12 back in 2016, when she was initially tipped to be a love interest for Alex Mytton. Times really do change! On the show viewers have followed her relationship with Harvey Armstrong. Last series they had an on-camera disagreement about kids and being in different stages of their lives, we wonder what this series will bring!
Gareth Locke is husband to Ollie Locke and they are the couple everyone on the show runs to for advice. This series we will follow the couples journey to starting a family.
Here at Grazia HQ we have done tons of interviews with the MIC crew. From Sophie Hermann to Miles Nazaire - we have all the gossip...
As series 23 of MIC is set to return, Maeva sit's down with Grazia to reveal all...
Following the huge argument in Season 22's premiere, Maeva chats to Grazia about her relationship with James Taylor.
Our new relationship columnist, Made In Chelsea's Sophie Hermann, answers your problems.
Have you ever wanted to do a really long, really intense workout - but you just don’t think you have the time? Or you can't be arsed. Well, there’s a solution for that. Just ask Made In Chelsea’s Sophie Hermann, who swears by an exercise class which is meant to give you the benefits of a two-hour exercise class... in just a fraction of the time.
The MIC star chats to Grazia about his storyline with new girl Inga - and teases that there's lots more arguments on the way.
The Made In Chelsea favourite talks about the latest 'intense' series, and how it's impacted her relationship with Harvey.
Catching up with Paris after she made her MIC debut, she revealed it is not actually her first foray into TV. She and the medium go way back...
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...
Reality TV couples you forgot about - stacked
Remember when Jamie and Louise dated (much to Spencer Matthews' dismay) in 2012? Louise then left Jamie for Spencer, causing a very traumatic love triangle indeed. Poor Jamie.
Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger's romance played out in the first couple of seasons of TOWIE, and it even involved a very short-lived engagement! However, after dating on and off for 10 years, the pair later ended their romance and Mark went on to marry actress Michelle Keegan.
She chose him over Paris, but that didn't stop Lauren Conrad's romance with Jason Wahler coming to an abrupt end. Following their rocky romance, the pair split and Lauren later married William Tell.
Before she joined the cast of TOWIE to date Myles Barnett in 2018, Kady McDermott appeared on Love Island in 2016, where she found love with Ryan and Adam Thomas' brother Scott. Things didn't work out when they left the villa, with the pair announcing their split in 2017.
Binks is now a mum to baby India, but remember when she dated Jamie Laing?!? After years of friendship, the two found it difficult to transition to an actual relationship, so decided to call it a day.
Before he started dating Gemma Collins, James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright were one of TOWIE's golden couples. After being on and off for years, the pair ended things for good in 2016. Meanwhile, Lydia gave birth a baby girl, Loretta Rose, in February 2020.
His on/off romance with fellow Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry came to an end for good (we think) earlier this year but Sam Gowland first hit our TV screens on Love Island 2017, where he left the villa with former TOWIE star Georgia Harrison.
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'. Ouch.
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...He's now loved-up with husband Gareth Locke.
Before Lucy started dating former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas, she actually introduced Mario Falcone to TOWIE viewers as her boyfriend. Despite Mario proposing to Lucy on a luxury yacht, things didn't go to plan and their romance ended for good in 2013.
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.
After meeting on the show in 2016, Rykard and Rachel lasted 18 months in the real world, a lot longer than most Love Island couples!
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'. However, Hugo later reconnected with Millie and the pair MARRIED in July 2018. Almost two years later, Millie gave birth to their first child, a baby girl, in May 2020.
These two were actually together for SIX YEARS! But after Charlie decided to quit TOWIE, he later publicly dumped Ferne on Twitter, with reports suggesting he made her choose between him and the show.
Ever since Justin Bobby and Audrina split on The Hills, fans of the popular show have pleaded for them to rekindle their romance, even more so after Audrina announced she was divorcing her husband Corey Bohan.
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. Spencer is now happily married with Vogue Williams and the pair have two adorable children together.
Another TOWIE couple which led to a failed engagement. Despite Sam and Joey dating from 2011, the pair didn't make it down to aisle, ending their relationship in 2014.
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.
Perhaps one of the strangest couples ever to grace TOWIE, The GC dated Charlie King in series four, but Charlie later announced he was gay on live TV.
After breaking Camilla Thurlow's heart, a lot of Love Island fans forget that Jonny Mitchell later coupled up with Tyla Carr.Of course, the romance didn't last when they left the villa!
Binky and Alex were love's young dream (kind of) 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 and is loved up with boyfriend Max Darnton.
Before she met, married and had a child with Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag actually dated a guy called Jordan Eubanks on the show. Their romance was played out during season one, before they split.
Potentially one of the messiest break-ups in TOWIE history! After Jess and Ricky dated for two years, things seemed to be going well until Ricky was accused of texting other women. After the split, the pair ended up having a bitter Twitter war. Jess later found love with William Lee-Kemp and got engaged in March 2020.
As well as his 'fake' relationships for the show with Lauren Conrad and Kristen Cavallari, Brody's romance with Jayde seemed pretty serious in 2008. Despite getting matching tattoos, the pair split in December 2009.
Series two of TOWIE saw the lovable Lauren Pope hooking up with Kirk Norcross. Despite the pair getting his and hers nose jobs', the pair split just weeks after.
They were one of the hottest couples ever to grace our screens, but things didn't work out for Montana Brown and Alex Beattie when they left the villa in 2017. In fact, their romance lasted just six weeks.
Her time on the show may be best remembered for her turbulent relationship with Ricci Guarnaccio but Vicky Pattison's first Geordie Shore relationship was actually with Jay Gardner back in series one.They were attracted to each other as soon as they stepped in the house but decided they were better off as pals after a series of rows.
Love Island's Megan Barton-Hanson and TOWIE star Demi Sims hit it off when they both appeared on Celebs Go Dating in 2019. Despite dating for a short time, the pair's romance was over before the series even ended.
He was one of the show's OG cast members but Harry Derbidge took a break from the TOWIE scene in 2011 before reappearing three years later (in some VERY skimpy swimwear) as Bobby Norris' boyfriend. It all ended in tears though when Harry confessed to sleeping with his ex on holiday in Tenerife.
They sign up to date us normal folk but those Celebs Go Dating lot just can't resist breaking the rules and getting it on with each other, can they? In 2017, Charlotte Dawson hooked up with X Factor bad boy Frankie Cocozza but it didn't last once the show ended and she's now loved-up with rugby player Matt Sarsfield.
She might be loved up with footballer fiancé Jacob Blyth now but back in series three of Geordie Shore, Holly Hagan enjoyed a fling with co-star James Tindale. Unfortunately, she was left heartbroken when he returned to the house for series four with a girlfriend.
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.
