Original Made in Chelsea cast now – scandal, royalty and Katie Price ex’s baby

Staggeringly, Made in Chelsea has been on our screens for a decade.

The explosive E4 show, which delves into the love lives, businesses and drama of the posh London socialites, celebrates its 10th birthday this week.

Over the years we’ve seen fights, snogs and tears in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, King’s Road and across the globe as the cast flew off to the likes of Ibiza and Buenos Aires.

But now it’s time to cast your minds back to the very first series in 2011, which burst onto our screens with not one but two love triangles.

Best friendships were destroyed forever, pals fought over the same girl and relationships were breaking down left, right and centre.

Some of the original cast are still on our screen, while others have gone on to forge very different careers to varying degrees of success.

Here is a look at where they all are now.

Spencer Matthews

The original reality TV bad boy, Spencer causes chaos during his time on the show and was caught cheating on numerous girlfriends.

In the first series he got into a love triangle with Caggie and Funda, then had a very rocky romance with Louise which ended in tears.

After leaving the show, Spencer took part in I’m A Celebrity in 2015 but only lasted a few days in the jungle, admitting: “Why did I leave I’m a Celebrity? The simple answer is that I screwed up, and have some explaining to do.”

In his searingly honest statement, Spencer revealed he kept his steroid addiction a secret from producers until reaching a desperate breaking point.

“My admission to the production team that I was still taking these pills led to the conclusion that it would be unsafe for me to stay in the jungle – a decision which I found extremely hard to stomach,” he said during his apology.

Spencer won the fourth series of The Jump, where he also met his future wife Vogue Williams, who he married in June 2018.

They now have two children and have appeared in their own E4 reality show about becoming parents.

Spencer co-founded a bespoke diamond retailer Eden Rocks and Clean Liquor Company, which sells low alcohol drink.

He also mixes with royalty now as his brother James Matthews is married to Pippa Middleton, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Millie Mackintosh

Millie had quite the time of it during the first series of Made in Chelsea as she discovered boyfriend Hugo had cheated on her with best friend Rosie.

After leaving the show in 2012, Millie launched her Millie Mackintosh clothing brand and also has her own jewellery, eyelashes, book and workout videos.

The Quality Street heiress married rapper Professor Green in 2013 but they filed for divorce just two-and-a-half years later.

Millie then rekindled her romance with former MIC co-star Hugo and the pair got married in 2018, then in May last year, Millie gave birth to their daughter Sienna

Hugo seemingly couldn’t make his mind up in series one when he flitted between Millie and Rosie, which caused a lot of fireworks.

He left Made in Chelsea after three series in 2012, then headed to Australia where he finished fifth on I’m A Celebrity.

Hugo co-founded hugely successful sunglasses brand Taylor Morris with his best Charlie Morris but has stayed on reality Tv on shows such as Celebrity Wedding Planner and Dinner Date.

As mentioned above, Hugo got back with ex-girlfriend Millie and the pair are now married and have an adorable daughter together.

Binky Felstead

Binky has been a massive part of Made in Chelsea, starring in the very first series as the best pal of Ollie and Cheska.

After 13 series, Binky stepped down as a show regular but has been back on a few occasions.

She had the very first Made in Chelsea baby in 2017 when she gave birth to baby India, whose dad is fellow former cast member Josh Patterson, better known as JP.

The couple have now split up and are co-parenting India, who regularly pops up on Binky’s Instagram in adorable snaps.

Binky, who has fitness brand Mama Being for other mums, is now pregnant with her second child with fiancé and businessman Max Fredrik Darnton.

Francis Boulle

Francis was working with diamonds when he joined the show in 2011 and was clearly minted.

He was part of the Lost Boys Trio, living with Jamie Laing and Oliver Proudlock, while struggling to find love.

After six series he left to work in Ghana but made a comeback for the 2015 Christmas special and South of France series where he slept with Toff..

Nowadays, Francis juggles managing online start up companies with co-hosting the Private Podcast with best pal Jamie, which is listened to by millions and features celebrity guests.

Caggie Dunlop

One of the main stars of the first series, Caggie was chased by childhood sweetheart Spencer despite him dating Funda at the time.

Eventually Caggie got sick of their on-off relationship and left in series three to pursue her singing career.

While her music career didn’t really take off, Caggie now hosts a podcast called Saturn Returns, which is described as aiming to bring clarity and calm to times of transition, underpinned by the astrological transit known as your Saturn Return.

Caggie used to date Katie Price’s ex Scott Sullivan, who also went out with Jodie Marsh and Bianca Gascoigne, with sources claiming at the time that she had been ’embarrassed’ over Scott’s ‘colourful’ dating history.

A source had told The Mirror at the time: ‘Caggie is really into Scott, but she is a Chelsea girl at heart and she’d rather no one knew about his colourful love life.

“He’s a wealthy guy and he has talent but there are too many embarrassing pictures of him leaving clubs with glamour girls for her liking.”

In a bizarre additional love triangle, they broke up and a year later Scott started seeing Caggie’s former love rival Funda (more of this below).

Ollie Locke

Ollie looked completely different when he started out on the show in series 1.

He had luscious long black hair and was in a relationship with Gabriella Ellis, but the pair broke up and Ollie bravely came out as bisexual and later as gay.

Ollie has had a few breaks from the series over the years but has always come back and remains a firm favourite with fans.

He finished in third place on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 and is co-founder of UK-based gay dating app Chappy.

Last year, Ollie got married to husband Gareth Locke in a extravagant ceremony at the Natural History Museum in front of a small group of guests, including best pal Binky.

The couple are still on the show and are now planning on using a surrogate to start their own family.

Louise Thompson

One of the biggest stars to come out of the show, Louise popped up for the first time in series one.

But she became a proper cast member in the second series and quickly rose to become one of the standout Chelsea residents.

The show delved into her turbulent relationship with Spencer, who confessed to cheating on her multiple times, but she eventually found love with fellow cast member Ryan Libbey, who she is now engaged to.

Louise left Made in Chelsea in 2019 after eight years on our screens and is known for her fitness brand Live Like Louise, but her brother Sam is still going strong on the show.

Last month, Louise revealed she suffered a devastating miscarriage and bravely spoke about the tragic loss of her first child in the hope that her story will help others.

She wrote: “Another reason that I want to open up about what happened earlier this year. I don’t know why I feel the need to keep justifying this post, I definitely don’t, I think I’m a bit scared because it’s so raw and slightly out of my comfort zone. I guess it’s also because there is no easy way to say it, nor any way to sugar coat it, but earlier this year we lost our baby and it was HARD and…

“In all honesty, I had no idea that it was possible to love someone that I’d never met quite SO MUCH. From the moment I saw the lines on the pregnancy test I started to build an emotional connection and my whole world changed, and for that to be taken away was devastating.”

Cheska Hull

Cheska was best friends with Binky and Ollie on the show – and famously got into that very heated dinner table clash with Victoria.

After leaving the show in 2014, Cheska relocated to Devon where she co-owns a boutique with her mum.

She also gave birth to son Charlie in 2018 and is now a single mum after splitting from partner Tom.

Cheska recently revealed she was “much happier” since leaving the bustling city and her TV career after it caused her depression and anxiety.

She also told Grazia in 2018 that her loved ones begged her to leave the show as it was affecting her so badly, but she was terrified of what she could do next.

“I was so low, I felt I couldn’t film, but I’d signed a contract. There were days I couldn’t get out of bed. I would dread the thought of walking down the street,” she said.

Last August, Cheska made a surprise appearance on God Morning Britain while being interviewed in a segment about holidaymakers not wearing masks while visiting Devon.

“People are just feeling they’re on holiday, they’ve got away from London”, Cheska complained.

“And I’ve heard through people and locals in the town that people are saying, ‘I don’t want to wear my mask, I’m on holiday,'”

“‘I got away from all that, that’s why I’m down here!'”

Mark-Francis Vandelli

Known for his hilarious one liners and sassy quips, Mark-Francis has been providing the real glamour to the show since it began.

The posh Chelsea resident, who has Italian descent, is the only cast member to have remained since the start and appeared in every series.

Remarkably, Mark-Francis has managed to stay out of too much drama but isn’t afraid to say it how it is.

Away from the show, he competed in the third series of The Jump in 2016 but was forced to pull out due to an agonising injury on the slopes.

In 2017 he hosted his own MIC spin-off called Mark-Francis’ Big Night Out and he also appeared on Come Dine With Me last year.

Rosie Fortescue

Rosie became the villain when she was caught up in a love triangle with Hugo and Millie.

She was called out in front of all their friends by a furious Millie, but they all managed to patch things up in the end.

After leaving reality TV, Rosie launched her own affordable jewellery line, named Rosie Fortescue, and also works as a model.

In 2014 she got a dream interview with Kim Kardashian to talk about the world famous star about her fashion collaboration with Lipsy.

Funda Onal

Funda was involved in the original Made in Chelsea love triangle.

The model and dancer was dating Spencer, but he also had eyes for Caggie which obviously led to some explosive drama.

In a bizarre twist, Funda would later marry Caggie’s ex Scott Sullivan in 2017.

Funda and Scott started dating a year after he was seeing her rival and the couple welcomed a baby girl in 2018.

Scott was famously dating Katie Price when she fell in love with Peter Andre in the I’m A Celebrity jungle and also had relationships with Jodie Marsh and Bianca Gascoigne.

After leaving the show at the end of the first series, Funda became a film star.

She played a Beauxbatons student in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and appeared in British indie crime thriller Two Days in the Smoke alongside former EastEnders star Matt Di Angelo in 2012.

The model has also appeared in music videos for Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah and Kid Cudi as well as Nike and Adidas advertising campaigns.

Gabriella Ellis

Gabriella was first introduced to us as Ollie Locke’s girlfriend back in the first series.

But Ollie realised their relationship wasn’t working and dumped Gabriella while revealing he was bisexual.

When viewers questioned whether it was a real, she tweeted: “Just to clarify last nights episode was all real the break up was completely real and I wasn’t acting! Thank you for all your support xxx.”

The singer has now crossed the pond and is still making music from her home in LA, releasing a song aptly named London to LA six years ago.

Despite no long living in the capital she has changed her name to London Ellis.
