Made in Chelsea series 5 to air from April

CMade in Chelsea, Jamie Lainghannel 4 has confirmed that Made in Chelsea will return for its fifth series on E4 from April.

The fifth series from the glamorous set of SW3 will see a batch of new faces mingling with the regulars of E4’s  biggest non-scripted show.

Sisters Fran and Olivia Newman-Young, designer Josh Coombs and fashionista Phoebe-Lettice Thompson will join new faces from last series Ashley James and Lucy Watson and the returning cast for more shocking drama, tangled love triangles and friendship fallouts.

22 year old make-up artist and party girl Olivia is the younger sister of Francesca and gets a lot of attention from the boys. She’s been known to party with Millie in the past and is a local on the social scene. Fran is Olivia’s sister and wears the ‘protective’ older sibling crown. The 25 year old works in the music industry and went to Leeds with Andy Jordan.

Olivia’s best friend is 22 year old Phoebe. She’s a fashion assistant at Tatler and has an on/off relationship with fellow Made in Chelsea newbie, Josh. 22 year old Josh has a soft spot for Phoebe, even though she’s not dedicated to him. He has worked with Proudlock in the past and is currently setting up his own design business.

Both Ashley and Lucy joined the show during series four and each made an impact in their own special way. Ashley was a welcome introduction, especially to Francis, who found a love interest in Chelsea’s new blonde. Lucy brought her own slice of drama, giving the boys a run for their money as she kept Andy and Jamie guessing her emotions.

The returning cast include Francis Boulle, Richard Dinan, Binky Felstead, Rosie Fortescue, Victoria Baker Harber, Cheska Hull, Stevie Johnson, Andy Jordan, Jamie Laing, Ollie Locke, Millie Macintosh, Spencer Matthews, Ollie Proudlock, Louise Thompson and Mark-Francis Vandelli.
