She may have had a rather rocky time since joining Made in Chelsea but it looks as though everything is on the up for Lily Ludovici Gray as she's unveiled her new relationship on Instagram.

Lily shared a rather romantic pic of her embracing her boyfriend on an idyllic Bali beach just as the sun was setting. It's basically everything you could ever ask for in a declaration of love.

In case you wondered, we are only a little bit jealous.

After the explosive Bali Christmas special, which found our favourite South West London crew battling not only each other but also the 'Bali Belly' bug, we have been sure to keep an eye on the socials of the Chelsea guys and girls. Ruby Adler of course went for a hard launch with her new fella on Christmas Day and now Lily is following in her co-stars footsteps as she shared the smoochy snap and captioned the post, "The best part of 2022 - you ♥️😍⭐️."

So, just who is Lily's boyfriend? Well, Billy Precup is the founder of Access Avidity (a fancy tech company) and he also shared some cute photos of himself and the MiC star over the festive period. One was from back in December (so only a few weeks ago but still) and it was of the couple buying a Christmas tree together. Adorbs.

No news yet as to whether Billy will join his girlfriend in her reality TV endeavours but seeing as he is not only the founder of his company but also the CEO, we have a feeling he'll be too busy for drinks at Raffles and chats on the bridge and/or park bench depending how dramatic they're feeling.

Lily may be a newcomer to the show but she has been pals with a few reality TV stars for a while.

When it was announced that she was set to join the MiC cast, we caught up with Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu about Lily's appearance as it turns out these two are BFFs.

During an exclusive chat with Ekin-Su and Davide Sanclimenti, we had to ask if Ekin had been giving Lily any advice, following her iconic time in the villa, and the bombshell admitted, "She’s actually been ringing me and texting me asking me for advice.

"She’s like, 'How are you so confident? How do you deal when something happens.' I’m like 'Lily, just be you. Don’t be someone else, don’t be scared if a girl is going to attack you. I’m fearless, be fearless.'"

We certainly saw Ekin-Su's fearless side on Love Island remember her iconic fights with Davide? LOL.

And the Love Island 2022 star teased what's in store when Lily's on our screens.

“She’s going to be great on Made in Chelsea. She’s very Made in Chelsea - very posh.

"She’ll be great on there, I’m supporting her," she added.


Naturally, we also gave Lily's Instagram a cheeky stalk and quickly discovered that the MIC star splits her time between Bali and London so it was no surprise that while the crew were sunning it up in Bali, Lily went along with them to cause some chaos.

A creative content extraordinaire, Lily, spends her time running the social media for plant-based skincare range, Rhodes Skincare and if her Instagram grid is anything to go by, she relishes the sun and sea of Bali and the cosy winter days of London.

Although a newbie to the ways of Made in Chelsea, Lily is familiar with the West London scene. Not only has she spent some time wining and dining with Ekin-Su, but she was also a bridesmaid when ex-Made in Chelsea star Tiff Watson married her footballer husband Cameron McGeehan. Oh, she is living the life.
