Inbreeding produces 4 more for new series of MIC


In further proof that the swimming pools on the show are bigger than the gene pool, Made in Chelsea have added four more “characters” for the fifth series of structured-reality who you would swear are already cast members.

To many people the press releases generated by the E4 publicity team are the only way to in fact differentiate the stars of the show. The author is one of them.

Serious question: Is Made in Chelsea becoming a make-work program for otherwise unemployable members of the upper classes?

Sisters Francesca and Olivia Newman-Young, designer Josh Coombs and fashionista Phoebe-Lettice Thompson will be joining the cast of 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 – all your favourite members of the landed classes in fact.

The Newman-Young sisters work in the music industry and are friends with Millie Macintosh and Andy Jordan. Thompson is a fashion assistant at Tatler and has an on/off relationship with fellow Made in Chelsea newcomber Coombs. Coombs has previously worked with Ollie Proudlock and runs his own design business.
