SW3’s band of wealthy, young socialites are returning to our screens for a fifth season – and along with a heathy dose of fiery friendships, doomed dates and painfully long pauses Binky, Cheska, Jamie and co are bringing with them four fresh new faces.
22-year-old Olivia Newman-Young is the first MIC virgin to join the upmarket reality TV show. The make-up artist and self confessed party girl is a regular in Sloane square hangouts and never fails to be a hit with the boys… (Hands off, Spencer)
Watching over her is older sister Fran. The 25-year old is a University pal of Andy Jordans and, when she’s not pounding the fashionable streets of Chelsea, she’s working in the music industry, which we’re sure will come in handy next time one of the MIC gang decide to throw a swanky soiree.
Next up is 22-year-old Pheobe-Lettice Thompson. She’s Olivia’s best friend and just happens to be fashion assistant at MIC bible Tatler too. Pheobe is in an on/off relationship (what other sort is there in Made in Chelsea?!) with our last newbie, Josh Coombs.
Josh, who’s also 22, is a little bit smitten with Pheobe even though she doesn’t seem that bothered (uh oh, prepare yourself for some awkward ‘feelings’ chats). When he’s not pining after Pheobe, the former workmate of Proudlock is working on setting up his own design business.
While we are swamped with new arrivals, fans of the show’s long standing cast needn’t fear. The following beloved Chelsea-ites will be will be back on our screens in no time: Francis Boulle, Richard Dinan, Binky Felstead, Rosie Fortescue, Victoria Baker Harber, Cheska Hull, Stevie Johnson, Andy Jordan, Jamie Laing, Ollie Locke, Millie Macintosh, Spencer Matthews, Ollie Proudlock, Louise Thompson and Mark-Francis Vandelli.
Made in Chelsea will be returning to our screens later this year
