Executive producer Ros Coward says: “Los Angeles is a playground for the young, rich and the beautiful so it’s going to be really exciting to see the cast embrace everything it has to offer. Whether they are hanging on beaches, shopping in Beverly Hills or partying on Sunset Boulevard I’ve no doubt we’ll see everything we love about Made in Chelsea but times 100.”
