With Made in Chelsea set to return to our screens soon, fans are eagerly awaiting the inevitable fallout from Made in Chelsea: Corsica. The latest season was undoubtedly the most drama-filled yet, although there are plenty of Made in Chelsea seasons which came close.

Many fans are excited to return to South London, especially those that missed a certain Emily Blackwell. Although she didn't appear in the Corsica episodes, she will be reunited with her friends and cast mates in the upcoming series.

So before this series starts airing, here's a refresher on podcaster and model, Emily.

Who is Emily Blackwell?

Emily is a model and the director of her own lingerie company, UYC London. She gained fame through her role in Made in Chelsea. She also co-hosts a podcast alongside her mother caller Mother Half, which frequently features her fellow MIC cast members.

She grew up in Surrey and since joining the show she has become friends close with Jess Woodley, Tiffany Watson and Lottie Moss.

When did Emily Blackwell join Made in Chelsea?

Emily joined Made in Chelsea in 2016, during series 12 of the show.

How old is Emily Blackwell?

Emily is 28 years old. She was born on November 20, 1995.

What happened with Emily Blackwell and Harvey Armstrong?

After almost two years together, Emily and Harvey Armstrong split at the end of 2021.

The pair, who moved in together during lockdown, faced problems on the E4 show after Emily expressed that she wanted to settle down and someday have children, while Harvey was more interested in partying.

A source told MailOnline, "Emily and Harvey's relationship broke down at the end of last year.

"They had been experiencing problems for some time after realising they want different things and aren't on the same page for the future."

They added, "Emily was devastated by the way Harvey treated her during filming for the last series of Made In Chelsea – he acted disrespectfully, and she struggled to trust him after his behaviour changed."

Since their break up Emily and Harvey struggled to build any sort of a friendship, with rumours of his infidelity haunting them both, it all came to a messy end in the season finale of Made in Chelsea Bali.

Who is Emily Blackwell dating?

Emily is now dating Jordan Alexander who has now joined the show and was an absolute babe in supporting Emily with the whole Harvey cheating scandal.

She is constantly sharing lovey dovey snaps of herself and Jordan on social media - and if you look as good as those two, why wouldn't you?

When Emily went instagram official with her fella back in August 2022, she was very quickly inundated with comments from her followers and co-stars, including Miles who wrote, "It’s INSTA OFFICIAL!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥 love you both so much! ♥️".

Sophie Habboo said, "Wowie 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Insta official xoxox."

A fan added, "Hey good looking! And you Em x"

She even threw a little bit of shade at Harvey, as she shared a TikTok that was captioned, "When you find yourself in another relationship after promising yourself you'd be single for 2 years."

Who has Emily Blackwell dated?

Before her relationship with Harvey, Emily dated The Only Way is Essex's Tom Pearce, and was rumoured to have been dating Love Island’s Chris Hughes.

After Chris split from Love Island co-star Olivia Attwood, he sparked rumours that he was dating Emily after he posted an Instagram photo of himself and four of the Made in Chelsea girls.

A source told New! magazine at the time, "The truth is Chris has been seeing Emily for a while and Olivia knows all about it."

AND THEN Emily very much confirmed the romance, saying, "Chris is an amazing guy. It's early days but yeah. We'll see. He's great guy, an amazing guy.

“Not a bad bone in his body. There's nothing not nice to say about Chris."

Is Emily Blackwell quitting Made in Chelsea?

While the likes of Miles Nazaire, Yasmine Zweegers, Tristan Phipps and Willow Day all jetted off to Corsica for a summer of fun, frolicking and, of course, furious arguments, Emily chose to stay behind in SW3, sparking rumours that she would not be returning at all.

She discussed the rumours in a YouTube Q&A with close pal Ruby Adler as they discussed all things MIC.

When one fan asked if they enjoyed appearing on the E4 reality show, Emily seemed hesitant to answer the question before admitting, “It’s like having any job really. Sometimes you have good days at work and sometimes you have bad days. Sometimes I absolutely hate it, sometimes I absolutely love it.”

She continued, “They’re all going away to do the summer series... I’m not actually going, purely because – not because I’m not enjoying filming – but because I have so much going on at the moment. I actually need to be in London and I don’t have the time to go away for like five weeks and film, which is really a shame.”

But despite rumours of her quitting the show, Emily did go on to say that she would return when filming in London resumed. Fear not, fans.

Her confession came after, earlier this year, Emily revealed in an Instagram Q&A that she was "not sure" if she would return to the E4 show after her tumultuous time filming the Bali series.

One of her fans asked "Love you on MIC, will u be in the next season? Xx."

Emily offered a honest response and told her followers, "Thank you - I'm not actually sure. I haven't made a decision on what I want to do."

How is Emily Blackwell rich?

Emily is a model and business owner outside of the show. She is definitely not the richest cast member by a long way, with her net worth and background largely unknown.

Is Emily Blackwell still friends with Jess Woodley?

It appears Emily and Jess are still friends - there hasn't been any big fallouts between the two (as far as we know).

Does Emily Blackwell have a YouTube channel?

Emily does have a YouTube channel. She uploads videos pretty regularly, so subscribe if you fancy more MIC content outside of the show.

Does Emily Blackwell have Instagram?

She does. You can follow her @emily.blackwell_.
