Made in Chelsea is returning – with a BIG twist

We can't wait to tune in 👀

Made in Chelsea

Made in Chelsea is finally returning to our TV screens and we couldn’t be more excited - especially because it seems to be combining with another of our favourite reality shows: Big Brother.

Apparently, a series of specials are being filmed, in which the regular cast are going to be put up in a stately home in Surrey (of course) and forced to spend an extortionate amount of time together.

It’s basically the producers’ way of getting around the current restrictions surrounding COVID-19, which basically means that they aren’t able to film in restaurants and bars right now.

Those expected to take part include Jamie Lang, Sophie Habboo, Alex Mytton, Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott. Producers are also apparently planning to through a few exes into the mix in order to add some drama to the series.

“There’s just no way they could possibly film fights, rows and romance in restaurants and bars right now, so they are planning to get a place in Surrey and film throughout August,” a source told The Sun.

“Bosses are drawing up a list of just who will be going into the house, and they are even debating sticking in a rogue ex here and there to spice things up. It’ll be like a posh Big Brother.”

Millie Mackintosh slapping a cheating Spencer Matthews

Millie's fiery personality came up with the goods in series four. After discovering slimy Spencer was cheating on current girlfriend, Louise Thompson, Millie and Rosie (pre-'friendship' speech, obvs) confronted Spence and gave him a big old slap. Followed by a dramatic storm off, this has got to be one of the most memorable moments in the show's history.

Lucy Watson's 'grill'

How can we forget out favourite sassy SW3 resident Lucy Watson? Her entrance in series four was not a quiet one. What better way to bond than over a Champagne-filled dinner party? Maybe not. After attracting negative attention from the other Made in Chelsea ladies for going on simultaneous dates with Jamie Laing and Andy Jordan, the infamous dinner party culminated in Lucy asking why everyone was 'getting up in her grill'.

Francis Boulle's 'knob' mask

Rosie isn't one to shy away from the action, but her in-the-moment insults could use some work. After a heated discussion at a masquerade ball in series one, Rosie's memorable comeback for Francis's comments was: "Francis, your mask looks like you've got a knob on your face." Although it's not the wittiest insult she could've thought up, she's not wrong.

JP's 'fcking good guy' speech

Made in Chelsea viewers were quite concerned about Josh Patterson's forehead veins after his memorable argument with Ollie Locke in series 12. In an angry outburst at Ollie's concern for Binky, JP erupts with his famous line: "I'm a fcking good guy. My parents raised me well. I'm a gentleman." A gentlemen who's very concerned about his girlfriend feeding other men marshmallows, apparently.

Mark Francis not knowing what Nando's is

Bless him. After hearing that Nando's is not, in fact, a wine bar, but a chain restaurant that sells chicken, Mark gives us his best disappointed-cum-regal look. After hearing that Nando's can actually be a date venue (the horror) he said: "He took her for chicken? What a lovely first date."

Victoria Baker-Harber calls Cheska Hull a 'fat fcking turkey'

You can't blame her for not sticking with the festive theme. Would it really be a Made in Chelsea Christmas without a massive Champagne-fuelled argument over the dinner table? Series six was particularly spectacular, with arguments between Victoria, Cheska Hull and Lucy Watson culminating in Victoria calling Cheska a 'fat fcking turkey'. Not cool.

Gabriella Ellis's weird Ollie Locke lookalike video

You've just broken up with your boyfriend and you're heartbroken, what's the first thing you do? Make a music video and hire six actors who look extremely like your ex. No? Well, that's exactly what Gabriella Ellis did after her emotional breakup with Ollie Locke and the results were pretty weird.

Millie Mackintosh8 of 10

Millie Mackintosh's 'friendship' speech

Millie has had plenty of fiery encounters on the show, one of our favourites is her infamous speech in the finale of the second series. At the uber-glam twenties themed party, Millie said: "to my best friend, Rosie Fortesque, for hooking up with Hugo Taylor while we were still together, and lying about it. Here's to friendship."Then, storming past her former-friend Rosie, Millie says: "You're disgusting". Ouch.

Binky Felstead9 of 10

Alex Mytton's 'orgy'

Ah, the classic breakup reason - cheating on your girlfriend by having an orgy. In the previous episode, Binky asked Alex to promise he had 'only cheated on [her] four times', and to her dismay, she finds out this time he not only cheated on her again, but this time in an orgy. What followed was an extremely hard slap and many tears. Poor Binks.

James Taylor taking Eliza Batten to Paris

These Made in Chelsea boys never learn, do they? In classic Chelsea style, James Taylor decided to take Eliza Batten to Paris on a date on a Monday (casual), while also dating Kings College London student, Verity Bowditch. The pair confronted him at a party, where it also transpired that he had tried to woo them both by inviting them to see his plane. Bit awkward.

Former Love Island star Zara recently came under fire from “skinny-shamers” after sharing her weight loss journey with fans. She revealed she’s “feeling down, confused, sad and upset” at the online abuse she was receiving about her smaller frame and stated that “this time last year I was being relentlessly trolled online for being too fat”.

In a lengthy post on her Instagram she responded to the hate she had received and admitted that, despite what her followers thought, she was feeling better than ever about herself.

“Earlier on I posted a pic of myself in the mirror. My abs were looking great, I looked strong, I have been working super hard in the gym, I feel amazing, and I’m having an amazing holiday. I’ve been eating pretty healthily, getting my 5 a day every day, just feeling all around great,” she wrote.

Her boyfriend, Sam, showed his support for her on his Instagram as well saying, “Not many things f--k me off, but bringing someone down because they are happy with their fitness journey and natural weight loss f--ks with me. How can people see someone lose weight whilst maintaining a healthy diet, and all the while gaining strength (she’s deadlifting 50kg now) how can people see this as a problem?!”
