Playing to type much, Spenny?

Made in Chelsea OG Spencer Matthews claims he had "multiple call backs" for a frankly enormous role in the Harry Potter film franchise and honestly, we can totally see it.


Because Spenny claims he was in the running to play boy villain Draco Malfoy. And Spenny grew up to be the villain of Chelsea yes / no? (yes). So it wouldn't have so much been acting as...being.

Spenny spilled the butter beer speaking to actual Daniel Radcliffe on Spencer and Jamie Laing's 6 Degrees podcast, and claimed, "I would have looked great with bleached hair."

TBF, this is pretty funny.

But what are the other Made in Chelsea series one cast up to now?

Long before former Queen of the Jungle (and returning? She's allegedly taking part in I'm a Celebrity: All Stars) Georgia Toffolo's reign over the Kings Road, and back when Sam Thompson caused more havoc at boarding school than he currently does on TikTok (and Sam Prince was probably still in nappies), a different bunch of privileged, pretty, young things ruled the streets of SW3.

Made in Chelsea is currently in its 24th series, and the love triangles, awkward silences and dramatic AF dinner parties show absolutely no signs of relenting.

But, seeing as we’ve been feeling quite nostalgic of late and thought we’d take a journey back in time. Back to the days of Caggie Dunlop and Spencer Matthews' rocky romance, when Ollie Locke’s hair was the envy of 15-year-old girls up and down the country and before Jamie had his wicked way with the entire borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The golden years.

Fun-loving Alexandra Felstead aka Binky was always keen for a party on MIC. But despite providing all the laughs, Binky didn't have much luck with the Chelsea boys. After flings with Spencer and Jamie, her turbulent relationship with Alex Mytton was the centre of a lot of drama in series 6 and 7.

Spencer Matthews quickly built up a bit of a reputation for himself as SW3's IRL Daniel Cleaver. He wined, dined, and then did the dirty on the entire female population of Chelsea in the early series of the show.
