Our favourite Londoners returned to our screens this Monday for their 14th season after an explosive summer soaking it up in Ibiza. It’s hard to believe that the faces of Chelsea’s finest first graced our TV’s over six years ago. That’s six years of break ups and make ups, countless champers, caviar and conflict and enough gossip to satisfy Regina George. But what will SW3’s finest have in store for us this time?
The season kicked off in true Chelsea style with classy cast members being chauffeur driven around in a Rolls Royce, organising extravagant singles parties and squabbling over boys and what they’ve supposedly said, or not said. With only a few remaining original cast members, it’s time for the latest generation of socialites to take centre stage, and new boy Charlie Mills made a bold first appearance on the show, already captivating the attention of the girls, which is sure to cause some juicy drama.

It’s safe to say that the show has come on a lot over the years, since the days of Spencer Matthews and Millie Mac. But are 14 seasons worth of flirting and partying pushing it a little bit now? How many times can we watch a new influx of fresh faces get up to the same old cavorts? The Phene and a gossip? Completed it, mate.
So why do we continue to engross ourselves in the lives of the wealthy? Escapism. The small insight into the indulgent lifestyles lived by the rich allows us to live our own fantasy of spending our days wining and dining in West London’s most upscale bistro’s, shopping in designer boutiques and not having to worry about money. And you’d be lying if you said you didn’t love the drama and scandals; what would Chelsea be without a weekly break up or an explosive showdown? Monday nights without Made in Chelsea would be undoubtedly boring. Not only does it provide A-class entertainment, but also a glimpse into an outrageous world where only the wealthy survive, and it gets a ‘yah’ from me.
