Mark Francis Vandelli

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.

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.

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.
