If Mark-Francis and Boulle had a child – and why Posh Shaming just isn’t Chic

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 18

The love child of Mark-Francis Vandelli and Francis Boulle wouldn’t be a bad place to start in terms of inventing the perfect Made in Chelsea character.

And relative newcomer, Freddie Browne, might be just that.

A “born and bred Borough boy” who sports tweed, flannel and brogues (I’m guessing about the latter), may not have been made in Chelsea, but he was certainly made to be in Made in Chelsea.

Made in Chelsea: The one where Jamie wins EVERYTHING

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

“Is his penis golden?” asks Jamie Laing incredulously.

He might well ask. For his nemesis, James Taylor, is certainly having a lot of fun with the ladies.

By episode 4 of our favourite dollop of posh, the Made in Chelsea lothario has dated Verity Bowditch and Eliza Batten at the same time and has now moved on to dating yet another optimistic newbie: Rosi Mai Walden.


“I think he genuinely likes me and doesn’t know how to control himself,” ventures Verity Bowditch.

This is putting quite a positive spin on the fact that James said he’d cheated on her with Eliza because “it’s easy.”

Made in Chelsea Season 17: The one with all the new faces…

in Made in Chelsea/MIC Series 17

A shiny bauble of posh pop culture has floated back onto our screens for its seventeenth series – but has the bubble burst for Made in Chelsea?

The longtime cast members are now reduced to Jamie Laing, Sophie Hermann,  Alex Mytton. Fredrik Ferrier, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Victoria Baker Harber.


The nymphs have (mostly) departed.

And we are currently drowning in a sea of new faces.

Some of us are starting to feel….uncomfortable.

And if you think they’re going to break us into this gently, you’re quite wrong.

The show opens with our Peroxide Prince, Jamie Laing, running after Alex Mytton and Sophie Hermann as they stroll in the sun-dappled filtered alternative reality that is Made in Chelsea.


It’s just like old times. Except it’s not.

BUILDing his Future: What Sammy Did Next

in Made in Chelsea Cast
Sam Thompson star of Celebs Go Dating, Made in Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother is now a presenter for BUILD LDN.

A slim brown-haired fellow sneaks his head around the door and then ventures into the room, a little bashfully at first.

He’s quieter than you’d expect, polite to a fault, and he’s dressed down in skinnies and trainers.

You nod at him automatically because you’ve met him before.

Well, we all have.

He’s the everyman. He’s the boy next door. The type that mothers adore and eagerly proffer to their daughters.

And here he is now, checking in with the motherly (and fatherly) types in the audience, asking them how they are.

Promising the crowd that we won’t have to wait long until the show begins.

He has the brightest, brightest blue eyes.

He is bursting at the seams with positivity.

He is Sam Thompson.

Taylor-Made: Getting Schooled by Hugo Taylor

in Made in Chelsea/Made in Chelsea Cast
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.

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…
