There have been a few different eras of Made in Chelsea; its giving Taylor Swift, and as we prepare to become obsessed with the Aussie crossover series, and are set to meet a whole bunch of newbies, it has us reminiscing about the MIC casts that have been and gone.

Joining as the girlfriend of playboy Alex Mytton, Dublin born Nicola was pals with the Watson sisters and part of the show during the Andy Jordan/Louise Thompson/Spencer Matthews toxic triangle that was the talk of the town.

Fast forward to 2023 and Nicola is no longer part of the MIC crew and is living a very different life – while looking a bit like Diana Vickers, apparently.
