Made In Chelsea series 27 (yes, really) is almost upon us, so who better to get us up to speed on the SW3 shenanigans than two people at the very heart of them?

When Sam Prince and Yasmine Zweegers’ relationship blossomed in the Corsica special last year, the timing ruffled a lot of feathers, as Sam and his ex Inga Valentiner had ended just days before.

While the couple are cagey about discussing where they all stand, they do promise we’re in for an all-round epic season. Sam, 26, and Yas, 24, might not be in the firing line this time, but that’s not to say it’s all gone quiet for them…

Sam, you mention marriage in episode one – do you picture all the exciting milestones together?

Sam: I do. We talk about kids and marriage all the time – it’s not a scary thing any more, it’s exciting. After Corsica, we were nowhere near those chats. Even after Sydney [the last season], we were nowhere near those chats.

Yasmine: We hadn’t really found our balance with one another. I think now it’s different. We’ve both grown up a little bit.

S: I think we’ve always had that attraction there. I know it’s clichéd to say, but we spend a lot of time with each other working, and we are best friends. Our relationship really works because we’re just best mates, as well. Our chat isn’t all lovey-dovey. It’s the first time ever I could sit in front of someone and just giggle the whole time.

Y: We’re very similar.

S: We’re both Taurus. Sometimes it feels like I’m looking in the mirror. We go out for dinner and people are like, “Oh, you’re siblings?”

Y: People think we’re brother and sister all the time.

Is there an element of wanting to prove the doubters wrong?

S: Absolutely not.

Y: At the end of the day, we don’t want to prove anything to other people. Initially, people didn’t quite get it, but now they are slowly starting to get us. Because we got with each other in such a dramatic way, no one at the time would understand. We’ve been through a lot, but of course, there are still people who absolutely hate us!

S: The first time around, it wasn’t quite right. There have been times where it hasn’t been quite right for us. But we’ve found our happy place now. That’s not because we’re trying to prove people wrong. I can sit here and genuinely say that I’m super-happy.

What can you tell us about filming in Mauritius?

S: There was something in the waters in Mauritius. It’s an interesting episode.

Y: We had the best time.

S: We sat and giggled while…

Y: … the drama unfolded in front of our eyes. It’s amazing how a couple of drinks on a sunny island can change a lot.

S: Some will definitely not be going back to Mauritius.

The sunshine can send people wild…

Y: I think it’s like being on holiday, you don’t care about anything. Having a few drinks, you forget almost what’s going on around you. You forget that, “Oh God, whatever you’re going to do on holiday... it’s going be shown nationwide.”

S: Just going away in the sun with all your best mates, something’s bound to happen.

Do you still see yourself doing MIC in years to come?

Y: I think we’re very fortunate. We wouldn’t have met if we weren’t on Made In Chelsea. But I’ve not really thought about that. We’re kind of living in the moment.

S: I’ve thought about it massively. I think my time is definitely coming... I don’t know about Yas, but my time is coming. We’ll see what happens.

Made In Chelsea airs Mon 15 April, 9pm on E4.
