Made in Chelsea: the Twitter reaction

Find out what happened when Spencer, Jamie and the Sloaney gang returned - and what the Twittersphere, including star tweeter Rick Edwards, had to say about it

Last night saw the return of TV’s Sloaney royalty as Made in Chelsea series four hit our screens. Few shows are as capable of dividing public opinion and the wealthy youngsters were on fine form as they paraded their fabulous lifestyles for all to see. But whether it’s your escapism or your fodder for ridicule, it certainly generates a wave of opinion, and the Twittersphere was waiting with bated breath…

As the hour drew closer, Harry Charles had just one thing on his mind… 

While @JAMESSEEKINGS_ felt the need to state his disdain:

But those tuning in were glued to their screens and their keyboards. @E4Chelsea kicked off the debate as Mr Spencer Matthews returned with some questionable facial hair:

It seems the answer was nay as Spencer’s new appearance drew some unfavourable comparisons from viewers… 

The reappearance of Mr Matthews following an appearance on Channel 5’s The Bachelor (which incidentally had no mention whatsoever) was the subject of much debate amongst tweeters. Cass Gowing read between the lines for us: 

While Colin landed on a great idea to liven up proceedings…

Unfortunately his on-off girlfriend Louise Thompson (above) gave him an easy ride and it wasn’t long before Spencer’s smug smile was back for all to see. But that didn’t stop @ChloeProud sarcastically expressing her dismay at Louise’s flimsy resistance.

While @Kushting was enjoying the return of Made in Chelsea’s excrutiating pauses… 

Back to the action, and Spenny was in a spin over the introduction of new boy Andy Jordan – an old friend of Mr Matthews’s best pal Jamie Laing. Young upstart Andy had the gall to flirt with Louise, risking the wrath of the bearded “polar bear” (Jamie’s words, not mine…) Spencer was aghast that anyone would dare make a move on his woman: Josh Farrington offered his explanation for this outrageous turn of events. 

And when Spenny took Andy aside to warn him off his girlfriend, Donna Bishop’s patience reached its limit and she exclaimed the thoughts of many a tweeter:

While Johanna Payton pointed out why no one could take Spencer’s “man-to-man” chat too seriously…

In many cases Spencer’s territorial rampage was met with disgust:

Meanwhile the fall of Spencer in the nation’s affections (following his pursuit of Louise when she was best friend Jamie’s crush) has led to a near unanimous fondness for the peroxide blonde heir to the McVitie’s throne. Poor Jamie’s recent girl drought garnered some sympathy from the Twittersphere…

However, next week’s teaser hinted at a possible union between Mr Laing and the ditzy cast member Alexandra “Binky” Felstead, news which lead to a burst of Twitter excitement – and many tired caps lock keys:

Jamie’s new digs – shared with fellow “Lost Boys” Oliver Proudlock and Francis Boulle – were the venue for the episode’s token gathering of cast members.

Proudlock’s artistic masterpiece – a consequences-style portrait combining their three faces – was the subject of much applause, including Catherine Kisanji’s bold statement:

Monet and Picasso must be turning in their graves… The return of another Chelsea favourite, Mark-Francis Vandelli, to our television screens was met with delight as he produced some statement one liners.

@Heatworld was in full agreement, applauding his insightful opinions on St Tropez apparel:

But while half the cast were sunning themselves in France’s sunny climes, shaggy-haired entrepreneur Richard Dinan was parading his new model girlfriend Ianthe Rose Cochrane-Stack (she’ll fit right in!) in front of cast mates Binky, Ollie Locke and Cheska Hull. Fellow Made in Cheslea-ite Francis Boulle was quick to point out Richard’s choice of clothing…

But fans did not fail to notice Ianthe’s resemblence to his former squeeze Kimberley Garner, who left the cast at the end of the last series. James Stewart provided an accurate summary:

Meanwhile James Martin started to get rather fed up…

But today’s star tweeter award must go to TV presenter Rick Edwards, whose relentless quips had many a fan choking on their Chelsea buns. The uncanny resemblance between Ianthe and Kimberley failed to escape his notice…

While Andy’s (rather prominent) nostrils were also a subject of his ridicule:

And amidst the heightened tension of terrace-gate, his observations provided some light relief for all.
