Julius Made in Chelsea

by Nathan Katnoria |

The latest series of Made in Chelsea continued this week and away from all the drama of James Taylor's turbulent relationship with Maeva D'Ascanio, one of the biggest storylines has been Julius Cowdrey making a move on Verity Bowditch after she split from her DJ boyfriend.

Julius and Verity have shared a secret snog in the past and it seems the singer-songwriter is keen to pursue a relationship as he asked on her on a date during last week's episode.

He also told Angus Findlay, "I’m very attracted to her. Put all the layers aside, put how she looks [aside], the most attractive thing about her is her passion. That is number one for me. Obviously I’ve got with her before so there has to be a slight attraction. I’ve kissed her before.”

Julius later admitted to "coming on a bit too strong" and before his date, Sophie warned him, "[Verity] does like a bit of a bad boy sometimes, so I think don't be too available. Try and be a bit more mysterious."

Where are the original Made In Chelsea stars now?

During their date, Verity put Julius firmly in the friend zone when she told him, "I really love you as a person. I'm not sure if I can translate it into anything further or not. I'd love to get to know you more but maybe not in a date vibe. Maybe as good mates."

Despite this though, Julius was STILL hoping to win Verity over as he told her, "Let's just hang out if you want to and then you never know in the future..."

"Let's just see what happens," Verity added.
