Made in Chelsea hits E4 screens this March with a bump – a baby bump! Promising cat-fights, glamorous getaways, and scandalous secrets, the series will follow the journey of soon-to-be parents and couples rocked by blasts from the past. Alongside the usual drama, it’s Chelsea as you’ve never seen it.
Returning for series 13 will be MIC favourites Jamie Laing, Binky Felstead, Mark-Francis Vandelli, Ollie Locke, Oliver Proudlock, Francis Boulle, Josh Patterson (JP), Alex Mytton, Louise Thompson, Tiff Watson, Rosie Fortescue, Victoria Baker-Harber, Sam Thompson, Stephanie Pratt, Georgia Toffolo (Toff), Frankie Gaff, Olivia Bentley, Fredrik Ferrier, Ryan Libbey, Akin Solanke-Caulker, and Julius Cowdrey . And in case that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, they’ll also be joined by super smart university student, Ella Willis, fun-loving single socialite, Daisy Robins, Canadian lifestyle-guru, Mimi Bouchard, cheeky teen troublemaker, Sam Prince and ex-professional rugby player, James Sandford.
Cheeky charmer Sam Prince is keen to make his mark and position himself a king of Kings Road but with a player past, will his cute smile be enough get him out of trouble?
Northern Irish born James is a retired professional ruby player. A star player on and off the pitch, he has ties to Julius and JP but will he be a match for the red-blooded males of Chelsea?
Edinburgh University student Ella is a brainy blonde bombshell. Many men might try to sweep this singleton off her feet but it takes someone very special to succeed. Splitting her time between a number of family houses spanning Fulham, Suffolk and the Balearics Islands, Ella loves to ski and fly and with her own helipad, she’s sure to prove popular with the Chelsea jet-set sect. Already with her eye on a Chelsea regular, it’s safe to say drama won’t be too far away…
Sloane square-based Daisy is a party-loving flirt who speaks four languages and does not want a real job to interrupt her glamourous lifestyle. The granddaughter of D’Arcy Defries, who was responsible for establishing women’s polo in 1930s Britain, she has sport in her veins. Sassy, single and looking for love, she has high standards and a penchant for a bad boy. Daisy is on the hunt but will the Chelsea bachelors meet her expectations?
Canadian Mimi Bouchard may be sweet and petite but she’s got a big personality and is not afraid of trouble. Single and more than ready to mingle, Mimi always gets what she wants, so heaven help anybody who gets in her way.
The 11-part series is produced by Monkey and commissioned by Channel 4’s Head of Formats, Dom Bird and Commissioning Editor, Formats, Jilly Pearce. The series is executive produced by Monkey’s Ros Coward, Kelly Lynn, and David Granger.
