Hugo Taylor starred in Made in Chelsea on E4

Hugo Taylor strolled off our Made in Chelsea screens after series 3 in 2012 and hasn’t looked back.

Is it any wonder? He is the co-founder of the Taylor Morris sunglasses brand, with his best friend Charlie Morris.

Just take a look at who’s wearing their frames… 

And here Hugo is now, in a Cambridge University lecture room on 21 February, talking to some of the brightest minds in the land about entrepreneurship – an event hosted by the fantastic folk at Cambridge University StartUp Society (CUSUS).

Hugo Taylor created Taylor Morris with his best friend Charlie Morris

If you had to describe the appearance of the reality star turned entrepreneur in three short words, they would be sleek, stylish and svelte.

He is as tall and lean as in his Made in Chelsea days – and has a languidity about him, a calm almost nonchalant quality of effortless ease, that makes you wonder what his secret is. Keep Reading

Spencer, Vogue and Funny Too

in Made in Chelsea Cast

There’s a reason why fairy tales end just before happily ever after is about to begin…

It’s because happily ever after often makes for very dull viewing.

So what hopes can you hold for a new show where Spencer Matthews, best-known for his pantomime villain performance in Made in Chelsea – settles into domestic bliss with model Vogue Williams?

The first episode of Spencer, Vogue and Baby Too aired on E4 on Monday night, and sees us following the loved-up couple around as they prepare for the birth of their first child.

As ‘plots’ go, it’s a pretty loose one, meaning that your enjoyment of the show almost entirely hinges on whether you find Spencer and Vogue entertaining.

Did the Season of Goodwill present Chloe Ayling with an apology?

in Celebrity Big Brother
Chloe Ayling 2018 Celebrity Big Brother

In the Season of Goodwill, we can’t help but wonder whether model and Celebrity Big Brother star, Chloe Ayling, ever got the apology she was hoping for from Jermaine Lloyd Pennant.

During their time in the Big Brother house in the summer of 2018, the glamour model and the married footballer grew close, sharing a brief flirtation, to the chagrin and astonishment of many viewers.

Chloe has always maintained that she did not know that Jermaine was married until she was informed of it at her eviction interview, but speculation raged online as to whether she was being entirely honest.

However, Chloe is perhaps by now used to doubts and speculation…

The one where Jamie is a best bud and Sam’s love life is a dud

in Made in Chelsea/MiC Series 16

If the handshake-dodging, date-crashing Thompson has had you fuming all season, hold on to your heartstrings because episode 11 promptly turns everything on its head.

It’s an inauspicious start though; the latest episode of Made in Chelsea begins with the Thompson clan (sister and brother, Louise and Sam), enjoying a saccharine sweet Christmas moment, playfully throwing baubles at each other by the tree.

Louise then announces that she is about to become the proud parent of…a dog…with muscle-bound fiancé, Ryan Libbey.

Unfortunately, all this sentiment does is provide a very real sense of how one feels after a big Christmas dinner with all the trimmings: ever-so-slightly sickened…

Made in Chelsea: the one where Miles acts like a 22 year old

in Made in Chelsea/MiC Series 16

It’s Made in Chelsea series 16, and episode 6 sees us sneaking into the bathroom of the eloquent Ollie Locke. He’s luxuriating in a bubblebath, while pronouncing extravagant sounding words like a latter-day Oscar Wilde.

Meanwhile, Liv Bentley is diligently writing down his every utterance from the safety of the kitchen.

“…I actually learn a lot from you, the way you speak,” says an appreciative Liv, as she jots down his pearls of wisdom.

“Oh that’s good,” says Ollie, who has now seated himself at the kitchen table. He deftly adds, without so much as a blink: “I’ll teach you how to read later.”

And that’s who Ollie Locke is these days. He is all elegance, dry wit and good grooming.

The one where Ryan is not impressed with Liv…

in Made in Chelsea/MiC Series 16

When we return to Made in Chelsea on Monday 5th November, Liv Bentley is not happy…

She is ruminating on the explosive events of last week’s dinner party:

“Ryan has sort of taken it upon himself to tell the entire table that Digby and I have been sort of seeing each other and hooking up.”

Lost? Here’s a handy infographic to explain what Ryan and Liv are arguing about…

Made in Chelsea infographic about Olivia Bentley and Digby

Alex Mytton makes a half-hearted attempt to defend Ryan: “He’s very close with Digby.”

Is he?” asks an unconvinced Ollie Locke.

“I think they’re relatively close.” Mytton pauses for a moment. “They’ve definitely done some squats.”

Given that many of us won’t do squats for love nor money, this does convey a deep friendship.

And to give Ryan his due, we can see why any friend would be frustrated on Digby’s behalf.

After all, Diggers is completely in love with Liv, who has dumped him, taken him back, dumped him again, and was – at the time of the party – secretly hooking up with him.

It doesn’t look good. Fortunately, Digby Edgley is a consenting adult who agreed to all of it…

Made in Chelsea: the one where Sam crashes Habbs’ date

in Made in Chelsea/MiC Series 16

If you dared to brave Made in Chelsea last night, you would have found Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo and bestie, Melissa Tattam, discussing one of life’s great mysteries – Sam Thompson…

Yes, episode four of series 16, sees the girls scratching their perfectly coiffed heads at the conundrum that is Sammy.

The blue-eyed boy with the facial expressions of a woebegone puppy, certainly could be considered a bit of a dog in some quarters.

Having cheated on Habbs right in front of her face and on video, the previous episode saw him beginning Operation Get Habbs Back.

After an emotional speech at his sister’s engagement party, clearly for Habbs’ benefit, he ran after her declaring: “I’ll be the man you want me to be!”

We’d like to think that this was a poorly judged comedy skit on Sam’s part, but Habbs is taking him seriously…

CBB: When Dan became a man?

in Celebrity Big Brother/TOWIE
Dan Osborne who was axed from TOWIE made his return to the spotlight with Celebrity Big Brother.

You could be forgiven for not knowing quite how to feel about Dan Osborne…

The Dagenham blond joined The Only Way is Essex in Series 8 back in 2013, but left under a storm cloud two years later when a recording of him shouting at his ex-girlfriend, and mother of his first child, became public.

Dan, who was 23 at the time, issued an apology, admitting that he was “ashamed and embarrassed that I allowed myself to reach such a dark place that I behaved in a way that even I didn’t recognise.”

He then went on to marry former Eastenders star, Jacqueline Jossa in June 2017, with whom he has two children, with the couple briefly splitting up earlier this year.

Made in Chelsea: the one with the Me Party

in Made in Chelsea/MiC Series 16

The Made in Chelsea: Croatia season finale ended with the long foreseen breakup of Olivia Bentley and Digby Edgley.

The split was a shock to no one other than the beleaguered Digby, who thought he and his girlfriend had been having a fine old time in Croatia.

However, the blonde ice queen’s “I think you love me more than I love you,” speech was delivered with a directness and finality that saw Digby sailing off home, possibly upon an ocean of tears.

But when episode 1, Series 16, of Made in Chelsea glided onto our screens last night – how the tables had turned…

The fun-loving Bentley has retreated to the countryside, while homebody, Digby, has mysteriously morphed into a party animal.

Partying with her friends…

Since Croatia, let’s-call-her-Liv has been “hiding” in the country with her family, doing all the cruel yet necessary things people do to achieve the mythical ‘clean break’ – such as blocking Digby on social media.

You’d feel sorry for Digby, confronted with such a wall of silence – except that when we first see him he’s wearing a shirt unbuttoned to below the nipple.

In the daytime.

At Tom’s Kitchen.

But perhaps there is an explanation for all this gratuitous flesh…

The Naked Truth about Jamie Laing’s Private Parts…

in Made in Chelsea/Made in Chelsea Cast
Jamie Laing of Made in Chelsea fame bares all in the Private Parts tour of the UK in 2018.

Last night, I got intimate with Jamie Laing.

It was a raw, naked encounter and he didn’t disappoint – I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.

But we weren’t alone…

His mate, Francis Boulle, was there too.

And…other people

An auditorium full of them.

If you’re imagining some illicit sex party, you’re close – I was, of course, in the audience at the Private Parts show, currently on tour throughout the UK.

Private Parts is a stage show, inspired by the podcast of the same name. The (excellent) podcast is co-hosted by Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle, and features a variety of guests.

Jamie’s nudity may have been confined to the stage (damnit!) but the cheeky pair certainly bared all last night…
