Has Made in Chelsea lost its fieriest character? It looks that way, as Phoebe-Lettice Thompson is absent from all promotional material for the new series of the E4 reality show.
Add that to this tweet from December last year…
I am not in the studio show tonight because I left the programme.x ????✌????????

… and it looks like the blonde, known for her bitchy comments, has bid adieu to the cameras and her Sloaney co-stars.
I fear the show will be the poorer for it. The former Tatler fashion assistant’s upfront comments brought her to blows with a string of cast members, most memorably Lucy Watson who she labelled a “slut” and “tacky” during her two series on the show. The two may have kissed and made up by the end of the last year but Phoebe’s antics made for some cracking television, even if they left her unpopular with the telly-viewing public.
With Channel 4 refusing to make an official comment, we’ve got our fingers crossed she’s done a U-turn on her decision. Any eager Made in Chelsea fans desperate to find out can watch an advance preview of the new series, available on 4oD from tomorrow evening – 48 hours ahead of E4’s Monday night premiere.
