Fran Newman-Young has hit out at her Made In Chelsea co-star and ex-friend, Binky Felstead, saying that she’s been brainwashed by the E4 show.

Fran and Binky used to be the best of gal pals, but Fran has admitted she was “very angry for a time” about the effect that MIC had on their friendship.


"She's been on the show since she was 19, so she's sort of been brainwashed really," Fran told Bang Showbiz on behalf of Seat Ibiza. "I kept saying to her, 'I wouldn't ever talk about you, I love you', but she's known the producers for so long she kept taking their word over mine, which was devastating."

And Fran, who originally fell out with Binky over her relationship with Alex Mytton, also hit out at Made In Chelsea for axing her from the cast; warning new stars that they "should really watch their backs".

"They'll be chewed up and dropped just like I was, and just like lots of others have been," she said. "There are some, like Binky and Jamie [Laing], that the producers love. But there are others that just get discarded, and if we're not given decent storylines, what can we do?"

Made In Chelsea will return for its tenth series on E4 shortly.
