Millie Mackintosh slapping a cheating Spencer Matthews

Millie's fiery personality came up with the goods in series four. After discovering slimy Spencer was cheating on current girlfriend, Louise Thompson, Millie and Rosie (pre-'friendship' speech, obvs) confronted Spence and gave him a big old slap. Followed by a dramatic storm off, this has got to be one of the most memorable moments in the show's history.

Lucy Watson's 'grill'

How can we forget out favourite sassy SW3 resident Lucy Watson? Her entrance in series four was not a quiet one. What better way to bond than over a Champagne-filled dinner party? Maybe not. After attracting negative attention from the other Made in Chelsea ladies for going on simultaneous dates with Jamie Laing and Andy Jordan, the infamous dinner party culminated in Lucy asking why everyone was 'getting up in her grill'.

Francis Boulle's 'knob' mask

Rosie isn't one to shy away from the action, but her in-the-moment insults could use some work. After a heated discussion at a masquerade ball in series one, Rosie's memorable comeback for Francis's comments was: "Francis, your mask looks like you've got a knob on your face." Although it's not the wittiest insult she could've thought up, she's not wrong.

JP's 'fcking good guy' speech

Made in Chelsea viewers were quite concerned about Josh Patterson's forehead veins after his memorable argument with Ollie Locke in series 12. In an angry outburst at Ollie's concern for Binky, JP erupts with his famous line: "I'm a fcking good guy. My parents raised me well. I'm a gentleman." A gentlemen who's very concerned about his girlfriend feeding other men marshmallows, apparently.

Mark Francis not knowing what Nando's is

Bless him. After hearing that Nando's is not, in fact, a wine bar, but a chain restaurant that sells chicken, Mark gives us his best disappointed-cum-regal look. After hearing that Nando's can actually be a date venue (the horror) he said: "He took her for chicken? What a lovely first date."

Victoria Baker-Harber calls Cheska Hull a 'fat fcking turkey'

You can't blame her for not sticking with the festive theme. Would it really be a Made in Chelsea Christmas without a massive Champagne-fuelled argument over the dinner table? Series six was particularly spectacular, with arguments between Victoria, Cheska Hull and Lucy Watson culminating in Victoria calling Cheska a 'fat fcking turkey'. Not cool.

Gabriella Ellis's weird Ollie Locke lookalike video

You've just broken up with your boyfriend and you're heartbroken, what's the first thing you do? Make a music video and hire six actors who look extremely like your ex. No? Well, that's exactly what Gabriella Ellis did after her emotional breakup with Ollie Locke and the results were pretty weird.

Millie Mackintosh8 of 10

Millie Mackintosh's 'friendship' speech

Millie has had plenty of fiery encounters on the show, one of our favourites is her infamous speech in the finale of the second series. At the uber-glam twenties themed party, Millie said: "to my best friend, Rosie Fortesque, for hooking up with Hugo Taylor while we were still together, and lying about it. Here's to friendship."Then, storming past her former-friend Rosie, Millie says: "You're disgusting". Ouch.

Binky Felstead9 of 10

Alex Mytton's 'orgy'

Ah, the classic breakup reason - cheating on your girlfriend by having an orgy. In the previous episode, Binky asked Alex to promise he had 'only cheated on [her] four times', and to her dismay, she finds out this time he not only cheated on her again, but this time in an orgy. What followed was an extremely hard slap and many tears. Poor Binks.

James Taylor taking Eliza Batten to Paris

These Made in Chelsea boys never learn, do they? In classic Chelsea style, James Taylor decided to take Eliza Batten to Paris on a date on a Monday (casual), while also dating Kings College London student, Verity Bowditch. The pair confronted him at a party, where it also transpired that he had tried to woo them both by inviting them to see his plane. Bit awkward.

Sam Thompson Made in Chelsea

They reportedly called time on their 16-month relationship in August amid claims she cheated on him with music exec Brahim Fouradi during her stint on The X Factor: Celebrity.

“The cameras have captured the whole fallout of Zara and Sam's dramatic split,” a source told The Sun.

“It means viewers will get to see the raw emotion caused by Zara's infidelity last year, as Sam tries to come to terms with what has happened. There's going to be a lot of tears and rows as Zara fights for her relationship.”

After 19 months of dating, Max asked Binky’s three-year-old daughter India for permission to marry her before getting down on one knee.

Writing on Instagram alongside a gorgeous photo of the pair, Binky said, "The easiest 'Yes' EVER! 💍 On Friday morning, on their way to the duck pond, Max asked India for her permission to ask her mummy to marry him.

"I love you Max - you bring out the best in me. I'm so lucky."
