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?

Geordie Finishing School For Girls: More Reality Than Show!

When I heard that there was a new show that was going to bring together people from Chelsea’s affluent King’s Road and Newcastle’s notorious Bigg Market I assumed it would be another flimsy reality TV offering.  It would seem however that I am wrong as Geordie Finishing School for Girls appears to be more of […]

When I heard that there was a new show that was going to bring together people from Chelsea’s affluent King’s Road and Newcastle’s notorious Bigg Market I assumed it would be another flimsy reality TV offering.  It would seem however that I am wrong as Geordie Finishing School for Girls appears to be more of a social experiment which pairs up four girls who have attended some of the UK’s top public schools with four Geordie girls who are the same age as them.

We have all watched the docu-soap type shows Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea and now we are faced with the actual harsh reality of the difference between the lifestyles of the two places.  The privileged Londoners spent ten days living on a deprived Tyneside estate and encountering lifestyles they had never imagined.  They were given £59 each to live on for their entire time their which is the equivalent to what they would receive in Jobseeker’s Allowance.

Events promoter Lucy was shocked at the thought of ‘surviving’ for ten days on £59 when she typically spends that on breakfast alone at the Bluebird Café on the King’s Road in Chelsea.  As much as these shows highlight the poverty in areas of the UK it also shows the indulgent lifestyles that other people are simply used to and how ignorant those living the high life can be!

It would be easy to make assumptions about both sets of people, but isn’t that what this type of show is all about?  Breaking those assumptions by putting people into situations that are out of their comfort zone!  With many people saying that Geordie Shore was shameful and indicated a loss to Geordie pride, it seems that the girls in this show may claw some of it back.  The girls are all trying to have a better life and do not want a life living on benefits, they are not all just about a lifestyle of partying.

One of the Geordie girls Makylea said “When I met Fiona, Lucy, Fi and Steph, they seemed so lucky, it was hard not be wonder why my life’s been so hard by comparison.  It’s not just the money they have that makes me envy them, but their loving families.  I haven’t spoken to my own mother for years and have no family support at all.”

It will certainly be an interesting watch so tune in to BBC3 on Tuesday at 9pm to watch Geordie Finishing School for Girls!

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:

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 1: £200 A Month On Underwear?!

Now that Made In Chelsea and Geordie Shore have left our screens I was rather excited to see that a new show was headed our way.  Dirty Sexy Things follows leading fashion photographer Perou and 8 models as they create a collection of photographs for an exhibition.  The show lets us see what the modelling world is really like and what it is like to live in it.

I don’t know if it was just because it was the first episode but I thought it was a bit of a weird show.  I was waiting for something spectacular to happen and it sadly never did.  As it was the first one they were introducing all the characters: Jesse, BB, Jay, Rob, Ocean, Ariella, Charlotte and Jessye B.  Yes, that’s right someone with the name Ocean!  So the models are introduced to us all and I already have my favourites!  (Charlotte, Jessye B and Jay!)

The others don’t come across very well.  Rob the beefcake seems rather arrogant and we find out that he spends £200 a month on new underwear.  Who on earth needs that many?  What is he doing with them?  Very strange.  Then there is BB which stands for Black Beauty who is trying to juggle careers in both modelling and dancing.  He moans most of the time he is on our screens about having to travel and get up early so he can dance for Alexandra Burke as well as do his modelling.  Sorry but I have no sympathy for you.  If you don’t like it, don’t do it!  Simple as that!

The photo shoot they have to take part in this week is a lingerie shoot outside on the streets of London.  As they run around in their teeny tiny pants, Perou is there in his sunglasses shouting and taking photos and then they all hop back on to their bus almost as if it was a school trip. (But with less clothes!)

I will be intrigued to watch the next episode as I don’t really know what to think after the first one.  I neither hated it nor loved it; it was just a bit bland.  It definitely has potential though so bring on the next episode in which they visit Paris!  Lucky things!!!

Made In Chelsea Episode 8: Season Finale Brings Tears!!!

So last night saw the end of Made In Chelsea and it did not disappoint.  It was full of the usual displays of wealth, self-indulgence and… what’s this we see, Spencer shedding a tear? Yes, that’s right, super slick Spence showed some true emotion that was for once not arrogance and got upset about long […]

So last night saw the end of Made In Chelsea and it did not disappoint.  It was full of the usual displays of wealth, self-indulgence and… what’s this we see, Spencer shedding a tear? Yes, that’s right, super slick Spence showed some true emotion that was for once not arrogance and got upset about long time love Caggie’s departure to the big apple.

At the start of the episode Caggie confided to Millie that she planned on jetting back to New York but wanted to keep it a secret.  Of course, Spencer chooses this time to parade in a new beau much to Millie’s displeasure, but come on guys you know what’s really going to happen.  At the same time Ollie goes on his date with Mark (the guy from the park) after some much needed outfit changes and advice from sidekicks Binky and Cheska.  Seriously Ollie, they were some of the worst clothes I have ever seen!

Event of the week was a polo match where Francis is playing and the whole gang attend of course.  There are quite a lot of awkward moments, that are of course hilarious.  Francis asks out Agne in front of both Mark-Francis and Frederik who also both seem to have a bit of a thing for the sultry (ex) intern.  Next awkward moment is possibly the worst when Ollie arrives with his new man in tow, luckily Binky and Cheska have already warned his ex-girlfriend Gabriella that he was seeing a guy.  Cue some horrifically awkward chat and massive plastered on (to the point where they were a bit creepy) grins.  This is why we love Made In Chelsea!  So, Ollie is there with his new man, yet seems a bit unsettled when he realises Gabriella is also there with a new man.  Oh dear.

Of course for the season finale there would be a big drama surrounding Caggie and Spencer.  Caggie appears at the polo match and announces her imminent departure to the city that never sleeps.  Whilst trying to hold back tears she says goodbye to her friends and to an upset looking Spencer who doesn’t want her to leave.  Bet that plan B of yours isn’t looking so great now Spencer!! The kiss that Spencer has been longing for has become a goodbye kiss and one that spurs him on to chase her all the way to the airport.  Alas, he is too late and Caggie has already left.  Maybe the weight of his slicked back do slowed him down too much, aww!

So that’s it for this series and we are left wondering, what on earth is going to happen next.  Surely Caggie will return?!  What will happen with Francis and Agne?  What over the top setting will Mark-Francis be in next?  I guess we will have to wait till next series to find out all!!!

Made In Chelsea Episode 7: Rosie’s Meddling and Spencer’s Plan B!

Ah Spencer, you really have no clue do you.  Another week brings another episode of Made In Chelsea and with it more drama of course.  The big event this week is a masquerade ball that all are in attendance at and was drama central. Rosie has more involvement in the drama this week than normal.  […]

Ah Spencer, you really have no clue do you.  Another week brings another episode of Made In Chelsea and with it more drama of course.  The big event this week is a masquerade ball that all are in attendance at and was drama central.

Rosie has more involvement in the drama this week than normal.  First of all she tells Agnes about Francis and Frederik’s plans to both date her at the same time which understandably Agnes is not happy about at all.  After some extremely unnecessary royal sounding music, Francis enters the episode himself and is confronted by Agnes to which he attempts a poor and very unconvincing apology for what he said.  Silly boy.

Meanwhile, Spencer puts his ‘Plan B’ into action to try to win the affections of Caggie.  His new plan is to try and appear unattainable to her.  Was it just me or did this plan have disaster written all over it from the start?! He starts the ridiculous plan by phoning Caggie’s BFF Millie and saying he’s going to move on knowing that she will tell Caggie everything he says even if he asks her not to.  Yes clearly this is the way to win the affections of your childhood sweetheart and girl you have apparently been in love with for 6 years.  Good work Spence.

More drama with Rosie as she asks Hugo (remember this is her friends boyfriend) “hypothetically speaking what would you say if I said I wanted to be with you?”  Hugo makes it clear that he is happy with Millie and sorry Rosie but it serves you right for being so arrogant earlier on in the episode.  She said she thought Hugo would ditch Millie in a second if she said she wanted to be with him… hello ego!   This only further pushed Hugo into Millie’s arms and they make their relationship official.  Aww!

Other drama at the ball included Gabriella angry at Ollie for apparently flirting with a girl right in front of her to which Ollie feigns any knowledge of.  Sorry but since he came out a few weeks ago we had completely forgot about him and Gabriella and are not surprised when later on in the episode he get himself a date with a guy he meets in the park.  Spencer’s plan B spectacularly fails and pushes Caggie even further away instead of winning her over as hoped.  Maybe it’s time to give up, move on, get over it and stop your very annoying whining Spencer.  From all us viewers, it would very much be appreciated!  Ah well we will just have to wait and see what next week brings us!!!

Geordie Shore, Episode 4: Constant Arguing Dividing Housemates!!!

Shock horror, this week’s episode kicks off with a massive argument!  The on off couple (can they even be classed as a couple?) Jay and Vicky have a huge argument as they both get jealous when the other starts to ‘tache on’ with someone else.  For people who apparently don’t care about each other or […]

Shock horror, this week’s episode kicks off with a massive argument!  The on off couple (can they even be classed as a couple?) Jay and Vicky have a huge argument as they both get jealous when the other starts to ‘tache on’ with someone else.  For people who apparently don’t care about each other or what the other thinks, they certainly have a funny way of showing it!

So with them constantly arguing and the rest of the gang having brought back some new ‘friends’ no one even noticed that Holly had left!  It wasn’t until the next morning when Charlotte woke up and found a note from Holly and then noticed that her wardrobe was empty that they even realised she had gone.  Oh dear.  This pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the episode.  There are arguments a plenty.

With Vicky and Jay totally single now (even though they weren’t really together) the girls decide to go on a triple date and ask boss Anna to help them find some lovely lads to take them out.  With so much tension in the house and the house seeming to be breaking apart a bit, you know that trouble is ahead.  Gaz takes a girl out on a date, but the funniest part was the cringe worthy call that he made to arrange the date.  Charlotte pretends not to care, but I’m not convinced.  When they eventually see this mystery girl Charlotte describes her as an inbetweener and comparing her hair to an orangutans.  Ok…!

So far, quite a strange episode! I’m not as convinced as I normally am with the program; the constant arguing gets a bit boring.  Charlotte’s sausage song when she comes home drunk and is trying to cook some food provides some light relief for a bit.  You know it’s not going to last long though, and right enough, another night out means more arguing.  This time it’s the girls that are arguing.  In fact basically it’s Vicky arguing with everybody.  Vicky felt that she had been stabbed in the back and was both angry and upset, which is obviously made better by the vodka she was drinking by the gallon load.   Not!  More fighting, more crying, that’s all you need to know really.  Probably some more kissing and goodness knows what else.  Not my favourite episode of Geordie Shore to date but I will of course continue to be glued to my screen because you can’t help want to know what they will be getting up to next.  Come on guys, time to change the tune a bit!!!
