We have to admit, we'd gotten a little bit too complacent with our Made In Chelsea cast knowledge. Despite the twists and turns of each episode's drama, we had our Mark Francis impressions down, could tell you how Louise Thompson would react in any and all scenarios and pretty much knew everyone on the show as well as our IRL friends. But then we got to the fifteenth series of the E4 drama and new-comer Melissa Tattam threw our SW3 senses off a bit.
We put the skills we learned having painstakingly social media stalking new girlfriends of old boyfriends (you do it too, don't lie) to some more practical use.
Who Is Made In Chelsea's Melissa Tattam?
Melissa is a socialite, podcaster and YouTuber. She also runs her own business - we are all for female bosses! She first appeared on Made In Chelsea in March 2018. We were introduced to her as Harry Baron's new girlfriend which, considering his less than shiny reputation, admittedly came as a bit of a shock.
Are Melissa Tattam and Harry Baron still together?
In Chelsea, it's good to not get too attached to a couple - unless you're Ollie and Gareth Locke. Sadly, Melissa and Harry have gone their separate ways after three years of dating. However, she does have a new boyfriend, model and videographer - Toby Watkins.
Melissa explained that she and Harry met through friends while he was already on the show last year. 'In fact, he saw me on Instagram and wanted to take me on a date, but it was two months before I said yes. Since then we’ve been inseparable, so its natural that I’d go on the show, too.'
What's Melissa Tattam's Age?
Melissa is 24-years-old. Probably going to be even more overwhelming a fact when you hear about the successful business she runs too...
Is Melissa Tattam still on Made In Chelsea?
As of right now Melissa is not on the show. Ever since she split up with Harry, they have both been absent on Kings Road. However, she still has many links to the cast and is frequently popping up on Habbs, Ruby Adler and Tiffany Watson's Instagram's. We wouldn't be surprised if she returns next series...
What Does Melissa Tattam Do For A Job?
So, Melissa has a swimwear brand. The dream, right? She launched it in 2016 while she was living in Mallorca and France after being frustrated about not being able to find any bikini's that flattered her body shape in the way she wanted. She designs them and everything, apparently. She also has a podcast with Sophie 'Habbs' Haboo called 'Wednesdays We Drink Wine' where they, you guessed it, drink wine and solve public's dilemma's ( whilst slightly tipsy.)
What's Ambience Swim?
Ambience Swim is the name of the bikini line, you see. If you head over to the website's About page, it describes itself as 'sustainable swimwear made to last'. The website currently pops up with a 'coming soon' tab so, she is probably gearing up for the summer 22 season!
The brand has it's own Instagram page too, of course. You can follow it @ambienceswim and you'll get to see lots of pictures of Melissa modelling the products for ya there too.
What's Melissa Tattam's Instagram?
What better way to get to know someone than from their beautifully curated Instagram feed? You can find Melissa @melissatattam where you'll find lots of nice pictures of her and her new boyfriend doing lots of nice couple things, and also lots of bikini modelling and selfie taking.

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.

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?
