Ollie Locke Is Leaving Made In Chelsea (Again)

'I look at myself and think, I signed my contract when I was 23, I’m now 35, it’s probably a good idea to move on.'

Unfortunately, we have some very sad news for Made In Chelsea fans{ =nofollow}... Ollie Locke is set to leave the series again. Sob. And we'd only just got used to having him back on the show as a permanent feature as well.

Over the years, as one of the original cast members, Ollie's become a Chelsea favourite - and has basically lived out his entire life on the show, from coming out, to marrying his husband Gareth Locke in 2020 in the first Made In Chelsea wedding. The show has since followed their emotional journey as they've tried to become parents.

Those who keep up with the lives of those in Chelsea will know that Ollie has left the series numerous times, most recently coming back on to the show in 2020, when he rejoined with fellow original Binky Felstead.

But it seems this year is going to be the last time the 35-year-old gets involved in the Chelsea drama. 'This will probably be [mine and Gareth's] last year on Chelsea,' he told Vicky Pattison on her podcast, The Secret To.

Why? Because he thinks it might be time to move on. He added: 'I look at myself and think, I signed my contract when I was 23, I’m now 35, it’s probably a good idea to move on - let the younger people do it.' We guess it's fair enough, but we'll sure miss one of our favourite MIC originals... Who else are we going to have to force friends to make up in totally awkward circumstances? (We are, of course, referring to when he forced Liv and Inga to meet after their falling out - which did not go down well at all.)


9 Made In Chelsea Couples You Had Completely Forgotten Were Together

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. Binky Felstead and Jamie Laing

Binks may be loving life with 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. 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. 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. 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. 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'.

Lucy and Spencer7 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. 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. 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.
