Reality series Made in Chelsea has confirmed its new and returning cast members for season 27, which kicks off later this month on E4.


The long-running show follows the tangled lives of affluent young people in the fancy West London area, with each edition bringing surprising storylines and larger-than-life characters.

Joining the party for this latest run is Sam Vanderpump, whose aunt Lisa will be known to reality television fans from her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and its spin-off Vanderpump Rules.

Described as "bubbly, energetic" and having "no filter", he is one of five new faces that viewers can expect to meet when the show returns on Monday 15th April.

Another to watch out for is Battersea-based Jack Taylor, younger brother of existing cast member James, who is currently studying Real Estate at Westminster University.

Rounding out the newcomers is Zeyno Taylan, who is the "fun, spontaneous and fiercely loyal" girlfriend of Harvey Armstrong and currently works as a fashion stylist with a keen interest in the industry.
