This Made In Chelsea Reunion Pic Has Us Reminiscing All The #Mems

It was truly a golden era of reality TV

Nostalgia fans, get ready for a blast from the past to bring a tear to your eye (maybe) – some of the most iconique cast from Made in Chelsea’s golden era have reunited on holiday and taken the ultimate selfie to prove it.

And not just any holiday, either – this holiday is to celebrate the wedding of undisputed Queen Bee of Chelsea Binky Felstead and her businessman beau Max Fredrik Darnton (despite the pair officially tying the knot back in December).

But enough about them; what’s got us really excited is the reunion of series one wonders Millie Mackintosh, Rosie Fortescue, Ollie Locke and Hugo Taylor along with the bride herself – and seriously, this lot haven’t aged a day.

Which is what being rich can afford you, duh.

REAL fans of the show will remember the explosive first series’, an era where melodrama reigned supreme, conflict was less scripted and more screaming, and even the West London elite rocked a questionable orange glow. Notable moments include, but are not limited to: Ollie Locke dumping his then girlfriend, aspiring pop princess Gabriella Ellis, to explore his sexuality (Gabriella then went on to release a single which was very obviously not about the break up and a video which showed her auditioning a line up of very much not Ollie lookalikes which was very obviously not creepy) and Millie throwing a drink in Spencer Matthews' face after learning he did the dirty on her pal Louise Thompson.

The new cast could NEVER.

But it looks like all that is water under the bridge now (boring) and serendipity prevails – after their explosive break up, Millie and Hugo reunited in 2016 and now share two children; Ollie Locke is godfather to Binky’s daughter India, who she shares with fellow MiC alumni Joshua ‘JP’ Patterson, and Binky was bridesmaid at [Ollie’s 2020 wedding to Gareth Locke {href='' target='_blank' rel='noreferrer noopener'}).

Speaking exclusively to Grazia last week ahead of her Ionian wedding, Binky said, 'I don't tend to wear lots of make-up during the day, so I want to keep my wedding make-up quite natural-looking, glossy and bronzed. I love a fake tan too, I either have a spray tan or I do my own fake tan once a week - I like Sienna X, I use the mist and the mousse. Hair-wise I want to keep things quite boho and messy. I don't want to stray too far outside my comfort zone.

'I think it's important that you still look like you on your big day, you shouldn't feel like you have to do anything drastic, you should just enhance what you've got.'
