When is Made in Chelsea back?

Made in Chelsea's latest series continues on Monday 13th December at 9pm on E4.

The London-based series first premiered back in 2011 and has seen a number of Chelsea's stylish socialites come and go over the last 10 years – although OG cast members Ollie Locke, Fredrik Ferrier and Mark-Francis Vandelli are still with the show.

Made in Chelsea fans have never typically had to wait long for the series to return, with the show airing two seasons per year on average.

Ollie Locke, one of the show's long-running stars, and his husband Gareth Locke returned to the Made in Chelsea cast for the new series, as well as Fredrik Ferrer and Mark-Francis Vandelli, who has appeared in all 182 episodes of Made in Chelsea.

We also knew for certain that Miles Nazaire and Reza Amiri-Garroussi would be appearing in series 22 as they both featured in the first-look clip for the first episode, where they speak about Reza breaking up with long-time girlfriend Ruby Adler.

They're joined by Victoria Baker-Harber, Alex Mytton, Sophie Hermann, Tiff Watson, Olivia Bentley, Emily Blackwell, James Taylor and Sophie Habboo.

Sam Thompson is also back on the show – however, his girlfriend Zara McDermott quit the series earlier this year.

The likes of Tristan Phipps, Verity Scarlett Bowditch, Maeva D'Ascanio, Harvey Armstrong, Paris Smith and Ruby Adler are appearing in series 22 too, while newer cast members include Inga Valentiner, Robbie Mullett and Eloise St. Clair-Charles.
