Made in Chelsea is back – with the first episode shown on E4 last night. So what have the posh lot been up to? Here’s a round-up of all you missed – a super speedy one!

But before that – you need to know all about the new girls and guys! We’ve compiled a handy list, just for you.

Jamie Laing


Age: 22

Job: None. But his dad owns McVities biscuits…bet there’s never a shortage of chocolate digestives round his house!

Gossip factor: Jamie has had flings with both Caggie AND Millie!

Chloe Green


Age: 20

Job: Doesn’t appear to have one, but dad is Sir Phillip Green, owner of Topshop amongst other things. (spotting a trend here?)

Gossip Factor: Is Ollie Locke’s new girlfriend. Yes, the same Ollie that dumped Gabriella because he was in to boys….

Oliver Proudlock


Age: 24

Job: Has his own fashion brand – Serge DeNimes.

Gossip Factor: Is Caggie’s ex-boyfriend and one of Spencer’s best friends…. Could stir things up between the pair!

Victoria Baker-Harber


Age: 23

Job: Swimwear entrepreneur (no, we’re not sure what that means either)

Gossip factor: Chloe Green’s best friend. That’s it. Oh and she has a dog.

Louise Thompson


Age: 21

Job: Student

Gossip Factor: MIC producers are loving bringing back past flames this series… Louise dated spencer for 6 months, and has also dated Francis.

So, there are your newbies – now read all about what happened in episode 1!

New kid Jamie is in trouble with his bank manager – he spent too much money travelling around the world – it’s a hard life!

Meanwhile Ollie’s ex-girlfriend Gabriella turns up at his house… only to find he’s there with his new girlfriend Chloe… awkward! – yes despite breaking up with Gabs because he likes boys, it appears Ollie is in to the female of the species once again. Ouch.

The Hugo/Millie relationship is rumbling on, and becoming a bit of a snoozefest. Surprise, surprise Millie is smitten, but Hugo seems to have a thing for new girl Victoria… could spark some much needed drama!

Not much happened on the Caggie and Spencer front, as at the end of the last series the Cagster jetted off to NYC leaving a newly single Spencer behind. Luckily, she’s back next week! We hope she didn’t expect Spencer to wait for her though… he’s rekindled his romance with ex-girlfriend Louise!

But what about Francis? We hear you cry. Well, Francis nearly got mugged by a child with bad grammar…. And so has decided to teach grammar to underprivileged children.  Yes, really. The less said about that the better? We think so.

So that was your speedy round up of the first episode of MIC! Are you glad its back? Or would you rather be playing one of our X Factor themed games?

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 8: All good things come to an end!

Last night saw the last ever episode of E4’s Dirty Sexy Things *sob* and left us wondering what we’ll do without our weekly glimpse in to the crazy world of modelling! The episode kicked off with the usual silly – and brilliant – banter between the 8 featured models, with a farewell dinner at BB’s. […]

Last night saw the last ever episode of E4’s Dirty Sexy Things *sob* and left us wondering what we’ll do without our weekly glimpse in to the crazy world of modelling!

The episode kicked off with the usual silly – and brilliant – banter between the 8 featured models, with a farewell dinner at BB’s. There was lovely food, lots of alcohol and even more gaffa tape… hang on, what?

Yes, a playful scuffle ended with Jay mummified in almost an entire roll of gaffa tape by BB, who lept to the defence of his lady Charlotte. Poor Jay – although it did prove to be the only successful attempt at keeping him quiet!

With the final episode came the last shoot with photographer Perou, who for once allowed the models to wear some clothes – in the most glamorous shoot yet! Charlotte, Ocean, BB, Jay and the rest of the gang posed for a sexy group shot, dressed in sharp suits, beautiful dresses and naughty suspenders.

Of course, the fact that outfits had been provided wasn’t going to stop Jesse boy from getting his kit off one more time! The cheeky chappy stripped down to his birthday suit again, and streaked through the grounds of the posh manor house where the shoot was taking place. Unluckily for him, the boys decided to play a prank and stole his clothes – whoops!

Finally, it was time for Perou’s exhibition – a showcase of his favourite photos from the previous eight weeks. He warned the models that some of them were likely to be disappointed – and he wasn’t wrong!

While Charlotte – who Perou admitted was his ‘favourite’ – and Ocean Moon had two solo shots in the exhibition, Jay and Jesse boy were shocked to realise they featured only in the group shots.

Scandalized stares aside, Perou’s showcase was an amazing success – and it was clear just how far the eight beautiful people have come as models in such a short time.

BB in particular noticed the contrast between his original ‘dancer pose’ photo and his striking Iceland based shot. The same can’t be said for his mother though, who received an earful from BB when she simply said the photo was ‘nice’! ‘Can’t you think of a better word?!’ Screeched BB.

And so the episode drew to a close, with kind-of-couple Charlotte and BB saying a tearful goodbye at the airport, where BB was due to jet off to Australia. We have to admit, we struggled to control our emotions, and not just because we love a good romance. No, we just don’t know what we’re going to do without those Dirty Sexy Things!

What do you think? Do you want to see another series?

Beaver Falls Episode 3: You’re fat. You’re pompous. You need all the help you can get!

Its parent’s day at Beaver Falls which of course spells out disaster.  It is a chance for the parents to visit their little darling children at their camp but more importantly Bobby uses it as a chance to tap the parents for donations.  The episode starts off in the remains of what was clearly a […]

Its parent’s day at Beaver Falls which of course spells out disaster.  It is a chance for the parents to visit their little darling children at their camp but more importantly Bobby uses it as a chance to tap the parents for donations.  The episode starts off in the remains of what was clearly a very messy and drunken party the night before in the “chunk bunk”.

A-Rab finds himself in a sticky situation when he wakes up next to a girl (that’s not Rachael) and doesn’t remember anything from the night before.  When Rick Junior’s dad shows up unexpectedly the whole episode changes to revolve around their relationship… or lack of.  Rick Traviata may be a golfing legend but his fathering skills leave a lot to be desired.

When Bobby realises they have had a party, he makes Flynn try and fix the broken father and son relationship so that he can get the much needed donation for his beloved camp.  Rick Junior tries to run away from camp after being humiliated by his Dad, Rachael gets drunk to try to prove to everyone that she isn’t boring and at the same time, A-Rab finds out that nothing actually happened between him and that other girl.  Pheww.  Drama, drama, drama!

Well you can kind of guess where it’s going, Flynn brings Rick Junior back to camp, Barry helps Rick realise how to be a better Dad and A-Rab saves Rachael from drunkenly driving Bobby’s golf cart.  Ahh, all is well once again.  There is something addictive and brilliant about this show, with some childish humour at times and some increasingly loveable characters I predict this show will be on our screens for quite some time!!!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 6: Feeling At One With Nature!

Eughh so much of this episode is about “Lord Rob” and you guessed it… his girlfriend Anastasia!  Ok so they didn’t seem so bad this time.  In fact they seemed rather normal in this episode!  It is quite amusing to watch them try and cope in Milan when they don’t speak a word or Italian […]

Eughh so much of this episode is about “Lord Rob” and you guessed it… his girlfriend Anastasia!  Ok so they didn’t seem so bad this time.  In fact they seemed rather normal in this episode!  It is quite amusing to watch them try and cope in Milan when they don’t speak a word or Italian and assumed that everyone would speak English.

Anastasia discovers that curvy glamour modelling doesn’t translate into Italian, and Rob’s tentative grasp of the lingo doesn’t help.  And no Rob, saying English words in a fake Italian accent does not mean that you are picking up the lingo!  Oh and really who goes to get a spray tan in white skinny jeans??  Crazy idea!

BB is also in Milan trying to get signed to an agency there.  After being knocked back by Elite models, because of his skin colour to say he is discouraged doesn’t quite cover it.  He is ecstatic to then be signed by huge agency Why Not.

Jay gets drunk for his 21st birthday unsurprisingly.  Why would we expect anything else from him really?  Would he actually make it onto set this time was the real question.  For his sixth shoot Perou takes Jesse, Ocean and Jay back to nature. He wants them to get into character as feral creatures. This is really Jay’s final chance to prove himself to Perou.

Perou wants them to be stripped back, feel at one with nature and feel part of their environment.  At what point does that mean you have to skin a rabbit and eat it before heading into hair and make-up?  Very strange.   The photo shoot looks something like Alice in Wonderland meets Edward Scissor hands but this week just as interesting without characters like BB and Charlotte!  Bring back our faves next week please!!!

Beaver Falls Episode 2: It’s July 4th But The Brits Are Still There!

Well Beaver Falls certainly has it all doesn’t it!  Last night it surprised us by showing us it wasn’t just about comedy but actually has some heart too.  Don’t get us wrong the humour to heart ratio is still going strong at about 95% to 5% but it actually works.  We likey likey! So the […]

Well Beaver Falls certainly has it all doesn’t it!  Last night it surprised us by showing us it wasn’t just about comedy but actually has some heart too.  Don’t get us wrong the humour to heart ratio is still going strong at about 95% to 5% but it actually works.  We likey likey!

So the saga continues of the three Brits working at an American summer camp trying to have the best summer ever.  Let us remind you that on arrival they are informed of what the camp promises “The key to a great summer camp is the quality of its staff. At Beaver Falls, we pride ourselves on recruiting only the finest, most morally upstanding young adults from across the globe. So you can rest easy knowing your children are in safe hands at Beaver Falls!”

Well, that’s not what they had in mind really.  This week its July 4th so there’s clearly plenty of havoc to be had.  Beaver Falls throws its annual Independence Day Pageant - and this year, it’s Flynn (the Scottish one) in charge so obviously his crew of campers are roped in to help with the promise that it will help them get dates for the dance that night.

Throw in the arrival of Beaver Falls’ most glamorous and infamous camper, Lily Meadows, and it’s got ‘diplomatic incident’ written all over it.  Meanwhile, A-Rab must pluck up the courage to ask Rachael to the dance especially now she knows who Mr Fox is, while Barry finds the most unlikely of drug dealers, as the boys embrace life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…

It is safe to say that this show has lodged itself in our hearts!  It was an iffy start to it last week but I am well and truly flying the Beaver Falls flag now for its silly but great Euro-American mix and comedy.  We heart you B-F!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 5: Fur Coats No Knickers!

It’s that time of week again when we are flung into the modelling industry with photographer Perou and his 8 chosen models.  This week Perou’s chosen four models BB, Jesse, Charlotte and Ariella were taken to the very beautiful Iceland.  Not only were they taking part in Perou’s weekly photo shoot but they were also […]

It’s that time of week again when we are flung into the modelling industry with photographer Perou and his 8 chosen models.  This week Perou’s chosen four models BB, Jesse, Charlotte and Ariella were taken to the very beautiful Iceland.  Not only were they taking part in Perou’s weekly photo shoot but they were also walking the runway at Reykjavik fashion week wearing some crazy Icelandic designs.

Thankfully there was no sign of “Lord Rob” and there was no sign of drunken antics from Jay, but an unfortunate image of him receiving colonic therapy.  He was off detoxing with his mum after his embarrassing drunken antics and his bad attitude.  Glad to hear this, hopefully he will be less annoying now!  The lucky four that went to Iceland were sent off to an amazing looking hot spring spa type thing which was ruined a bit by Ariella’s annoying and childish behaviour.  She is right up there in the annoying stakes with Rob!

Now after last week, you would have thought that they would have had enough of fish!  Yet this week they head to a top fish restaurant and it definitely isn’t for the faint hearted.  It wasn’t your usual fish dishes though as they were served smoked eel, shark and whale fat.  Oh and how could we forget the special Icelandic dish that consisted of rotten fish?  It made me feel queasy just watching them serve it up never mind the thought of actually eating it.

Anyway, this week’s photo shoot with Perou was described by him as “fur coats no knickers.”  Now with prim and proper Ariella meant to be taking part in the shoot who has previously refused to wear a leotard because she thought it was too skimpy, is it practical to think she will take part in something described as fur coats, no knickers?  They were all painted black like the volcanic sands of Iceland and draped in fake fur.

Surprisingly Ariella does actually take part although is clearly not too happy about it and shows insecurities that you don’t expect models to have.  She turned up but didn’t impress!  Oh well, I have to admit I’m quite happy when Perou says he never wants to see Ariella at a photo shoot again.  Till next week then my friends…!

Beaver Falls, Your Weekly Dose Of Summer Sun!

Well last night another new show graced our screens called Beaver Falls.  This refreshing comedy is brought to us from some of the folk that gave us shows like Skins so you know it’s going to be good!  Beaver Falls follows three British graduates as they venture across the pond after blagging themselves jobs at a summer camp.

Well the first episode manages to fit in just about every stereotype possible ranging from crazed Scottish bloke, macho jock, tech geek and typical California beach babe.  Oh yeah and the super stern, no fun camp leader with the cougar wife.  Already, I am loving it.  You have to enjoy a bit of American TV stereotyped rubbish now and again.

So will our three brave Brits find the perfect summer they are after?  Well when we say brave it’s not exactly like they are roughing it or anything, it’s more like will they manage to not mess up so badly that they get fired!  For anyone who has ever spent the summer at one of these camps or the summer in America, the shows provides some nostalgia for you.  You can relive those treasured moments through the Beaver Falls gang.  Also if you ever chose not to go, here is your chance to see what it would have been like.  Ok it may be slightly dramatized for our viewing pleasure but all the basics are there.  Us, jealous?  Never! (Ok, I may be lying ever so slightly…)

I will definitely be tuning in next week to keep up with the happy campers or not so happy I assume.  A perfect show for the summer, just try not get too jealous gazing at your screen, maybe just close the curtains to block out all the rain!!!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 4: They Chucked A Dead Rotten Octopus On My Head!

Dirty Sexy Things is back on again and surprise surprise Jay is yet again drunk!  The majority of this week’s offering of Dirty Sexy Things included some castings, Jay making an idiot of himself (again) and a dead octopus.  I haven’t written that wrong or gone mad; there was actually a dead octopus on the […]

Dirty Sexy Things is back on again and surprise surprise Jay is yet again drunk!  The majority of this week’s offering of Dirty Sexy Things included some castings, Jay making an idiot of himself (again) and a dead octopus.  I haven’t written that wrong or gone mad; there was actually a dead octopus on the show.

The casting that two of the girls attended really lived up to the harsh nature we do assume the fashion industry has.  The people who were casting were openly talking about Charlotte in front of her so it is no wonder she didn’t look that interested really.  I wouldn’t look interested either if someone was slating me and I could hear them.  The people at the casting call really did nothing to improve the perception that people have of those involved in the fashion industry as they seemed rude and arrogant.

Jesse had an audition for a presenting role at T4.  He told a rep at his modelling agency that that was the route he wanted to head down but even I could see that he looked quite uncomfortable during the audition.  Someone had given feedback at the time saying he was quite good but it sounded like there was a massive “but…” lingering in the air that he just didn’t want to say.

The majority of the episode focused on the four models that were chosen for this week’s big photo shoot that was held in the town of Whitstable: Charlotte, Jessye B, Jay and Jesse.  It is clear that Jay and Jessye B do not get on at all and after a night of Jay drinking too much again and embarrassing himself he went home before the shoot had even taken place the next day.

Charlotte had clearly shown her hatred of fish so wasn’t too pleased to find out the whole concept of the photo shoot revolved around fish and the sea.  However, she was very professional and didn’t let it affect her one bit.  Jessye B had the unfortunate task of posing with a dead, cold, rotten octopus on her head but also didn’t let it get to her.  I definitely couldn’t have done it myself, yuck!

It will be interesting to see how Jay behaves next week but frankly I am bored of him and his stupid, childish behaviour.  I can’t imagine many people wanting to work with him if they recognise him from the show!  Oh well, only time will tell!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 3: It’s Like Hanging Out With Your Mate’s Troubled Little Brother!

Ok, I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this program this week!  Why do i seem to get sucked into all these shows eventually?  Oh well, this week was less of a borefest than last week, maybe because they all seemed less forced and less scripted! I definitely have my favourites or should I […]

Ok, I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this program this week!  Why do i seem to get sucked into all these shows eventually?  Oh well, this week was less of a borefest than last week, maybe because they all seemed less forced and less scripted!

I definitely have my favourites or should I say I know who is definitely not my favourite!  Yeah I mean you ‘Lord’ Rob!  Why does he talk about his girlfriend so much?  He tells us about her in every single episode but it’s the same kind of stuff that he tells us every time too.  Boring!  Frankly I don’t care and why is there any need to share this pointless information, we get that you have a girlfriend ok?!  I am surprised he has any room in his life for anything other than his massive ego.  I find myself gravitating towards the mute button whilst he is on my screen! (Sorry, rant over!)

Anyway, some of the boys headed to Milan to try and book some work and BB headed to Paris for a photo shoot from his new Paris agency.    Shock horror Jay got really drunk and didn’t manage to get signed to an agency.  Jesse wasn’t impressed with his company in Milan saying that Jay is like someone’s troubled younger brother and Rob is like an embarrassing Dad.  I actually kind of agree.

This week’s photo shoot is an action shoot that will involve them having paint thrown on them at the same time.  Jay is told he seems too tired to take part in the shoot so is back to his angry self and Ariella refuses to wear the leotard she is given.  Ocean has to face the same hairdresser that she had a fight with the week before who seem relentlessly petty so it’s good to see her stand up to him.

If this show is going to get better and better, I look forward to seeing it next week.  The weird world of modelling and the random bunch of models in the show are becoming more appealing.  Is it actually getting better or is it just that it’s been a while since we watched any decent reality type TV?  Hmm, I’m not sure…!

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 2: What’s Missing?

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there. I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as […]

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there.

I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as if it is missing the normal part of a public vote off or some sort of commentary.  For years we have watched shows like America’s Next Top Model, Britain’s Next Top Model and Project Runway that have involved the world of modelling and fashion so it’s not like we just don’t like the subject matter!  There just seems to be something missing!

Yes the aim of the show is to expose the reality behind the so-called glamorous industry but it is quite simply a bit dull.  Woop-dee-doo it is real life, but sorry that’s not really what we want from a TV show like this.  Surely they have realised by now that the reality show/docu-soap/real-fake show concept works when there are some crazy characters and a world or lifestyle that most of us can only imagine (good or bad!)  Take Made In Chelsea for example.  Why do people watch it?  Purely to see what a rich London lifestyle is like with some crazy (but brilliant) posh characters.  Or look at Geordie Shore.  Completely the opposite from the M.I.D lot but equally as watchable to see a lifestyle so very different from our own.

So what do we get from Dirty Sexy Things?  Yes they are models, but they aren’t offering us anything spectacular.  Half the time we are basically watching people go to job interviews as that’s what castings are really.  Then there is what seems a half-hearted effort to include the usual drunken antics, flirting and individually filmed segments in which they make horrible, catty remarks about their co-stars.  (We use the word ‘stars’ loosely!)  Overall though, not a patch on its predecessors!

Dirty – no.  Sexy – no. Things – yeah, ok but that’s about it really!

Blueghhhh:
