Made in Chelsea has offered some seriously iconic moments from tattoo cover ups and drinks being swilled to cheating accusations and faces being slapped, the SW3 crew sure know how to made good telly, none more so than Spencer Matthews.

The OG cast member has now quit MIC but during his five year stint on the reality show he caused some serious drama and was penned as a villain for his treatment of ex-girlfriend Louise Thompson.

But not all is as it seems. Spencer was a guest on Elizabeth Day's 'How To Fail' podcast where he revealed a Chelsea secret that has, quite frankly, blow our reality TV obsessed minds.

Chatting to Elizabeth, he asked, "I guess you are aware of my famous scene with Louise?"

Honestly, Spenny, who isn't? It was a pinnacle moment in MIC that saw Spencer break up with a crying Louise on Putney Bridge.

Spencer was crucified by viewers for telling his ex-girlfriend, "It’s hard to respect you when you allow me to cheat on you."

As far as break-ups go that was pretty savage.

However during the podcast episode Spencer confessed, "I'd broken up with Louise the night before and I told her that the scene [they were going to film] was about that and she came in steaming hot, you know, like screaming at me breaking up with me and I was like 'Oh, this isn't real anymore.'

"So you have these crazy reactions and at the time I was a heavy drinker and the change in the winds and our relationship was very toxic at the time, meant that we had a screaming match that I regret."


Potentially the most iconic scene in Made in Chelsea history is a complete lie?

Spencer went on to add, "We're not friends but I have no hard feelings, I wish her all the best.

"It's a shame I yelled at her that way because I feel embarrassed about it but had I not told her the night before, the scene would have been different."

Maybe this is why people call it structured reality TV rather than just regular 'ole reality TV.
