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.'

Ollie Locke made in Chelsea

Unfortunately, we have some very sad news for Made In Chelsea fans... 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.)

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.
