Made In Chelsea original cast today from baby bombshells to quitting showbiz

Made In Chelsea premiered on E4 10 years ago, making stars of some of Britain's wealthiest twentysomethings and their mates.

The reality series took inspiration from the likes of The Hills, filming London's poshest clubbers and tracing their love lives and friendships before the cameras.

Names like Spencer Matthews and Binky Felstead became celebrities overnight after appearing on the show, launching hugely successful careers on the back of Made In Chelsea fame.

However, the majority of the original cast has since left the show, with just Ollie Locke and Fredrik Ferrier remaining on the series.

To mark the show's special anniversary, Daily Star has taken a look back at where some of the show's leading cast members are today, celebrating 10 glittering years on the screen.

Spencer Matthews

The show’s resident lothario, the first series centred around the end of Eton-educated Spencer’s turbulent relationship with Funda Onal after childhood sweetheart Caggie Dunlop came back on the scene.

After quitting Made in Chelsea in 2016, he became a reality TV regular, appearing on The Jump, Celebrity MasterChef and Celebrity Hunted. In 2015 he landed a spot on I’m A Celebrity but was forced to quit over a secret addiction to steroids.

Spencer dated a string of famous women including Vicky Pattison and Made in Chelsea stars Louise Thompson, Lucy Watson and Stephanie Pratt but has put his womanising ways aside.

Now 32, he is married to model Vogue Williams – the ex of Westlife star Brian McFadden – and the pair have two children.

Spencer, who runs a low-alcohol drinks company, is related to the royals via marriage – his older brother James is wed to the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa.

Meanwhile, his ex Funda, who left after one series, is now in a relationship with Scott Sullivan, who previously dated both Katie Price – and Caggie Dunlop.

Hugo Taylor and Millie Mackintosh

Another Made in Chelsea love triangle saw Hugo torn between Millie Mackintosh and Rosie Fortescue.

He exited the show in 2013 after appearing in I’m A Celebrity the year before where he came fifth. Hugo is the co-founder of upmarket sunglasses brand Taylor Morris.

Meanwhile Millie – whose family created Quality Street – left after two years and released jewellery and eyelash ranges but saw her fashion line Cammac go bust.

Millie married rapper Professor Green but the union was short-lived and they had a bitter split. He wrote a song, One Eye On The Door, about their marriage which painted her in an unflattering light, while she reportedly turned her £1,500 wedding dress into a blood-spattered Halloween costume.

After the split, Hugo, 34, and Millie, 31, started dating again and got engaged in 2017. They wed the following year and have a baby daughter Siena, who was born in May 2020.

Binky Felstead

One of the most successful stars to come out of the show, Binky dated Chelsea boys Jamie Laing and Alex Mytton before having baby India with Joshua Patterson in 2017.

Binky and JP split in 2018 but she is now engaged to businessman Max Fredrik Darnton.

The pair are shortly to become parents to a baby boy with heavily pregnant Binky, 31, due to give birth in five weeks.

She released a 2014 book, Being Binky, and is also a successful influencer, about to launch a new online parenting platform and is an investor in talent agency Matchstick group.

Ollie Locke

Ollie, 33, came out as bisexual during series one but later confirmed he was gay.

He has been in MiC on and off since the start but has also penned a bestselling book called Laid in Chelsea and appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating.

He once dated TopShop heiress Chloe Green but last year wed similarly-named Gareth Locke at London’s Natural History Museum. The wedding featured on the most recent series of MiC.

Amber Atherton

Former model Amber was one of the creators of Made in Chelsea and starred in it herself until series three.

She launched a jewellery business MyFlashTrash which she reportedly sold for £2million.

Amber, 30, now lives in San Francisco and after selling another start-up, is currently Head of Strategic Communications at social media firm Discord.

Francis Boulle

Socially awkward businessman and diamond heir Francis stayed on the show for six years but has made regular comebacks.

He released a book, Boulle’s Jewels, about how to succeed at business, has worked in Ghana and also appeared on Celebrity Mastermind.

Francis, 32 – who’s said to be worth £10million – has also become a comedian and co-hosts the successful Private Parts podcast with fellow Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing, who joined the show in series two.

Caggie Dunlop

After leaving SW3 – and Spencer – behind in 2012, Caggie flew to Australia to pursue her music career.

She’s since released several records, launched a fashion range and now hosts her own podcast, Saturn Returns.

The 32-year-old is also said to have dated Harry Styles.

Fredrik Ferrier

Half-English, half-Icelandic, the model left the show in series four but returned in 2016 and appeared on the most recent run of episodes.

Fredrik, 31, is also a singer, songwriter and musician.

He is best friends with fashion designer and social media influencer Sophie Hermann, who recently struck up a romance with DJ Tom Zanetti.

Gabriella Ellis

Singer Gabriella, 31 – now known as London Ellis – was dumped by Ollie Locke in the first series and quickly left.

She emigrated to LA and is still making music, plus has a YouTube channel where she posts hair and beauty tutorials as well as cover songs.

Her song Fight, which featured on Made In Chelsea, will forever go down in television history.

Rosie Fortescue

Rosie Fortescue was one of the leading cast members of Made In Chelsea for years, regularly stirring the pot at dinner parties and swish events.

Since leaving the show Rosie, 31, has launched her own jewellery line and runs a successful fashion blog, A Fashion Forte.

She is super active on Instagram, and, with almost 500,000 followers to her name, it looks like her jewellery design business is booming.

Cheska Hull

Best pals with Ollie and Binky, Cheska revealed starring on the show had left her with "anxiety and depression".

She said: "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."

Cheska, 35, quit the limelight to move to Devon where she runs a boutique with her mum and is a single mum to son Charlie.
