Here's what you need to know about the people of Made in Chelsea...

…ahead of their visit to the Late Late Show tonight.

TONIGHT ON THE Late Late Show, Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and Jamie Laing will take to the stage to have a chat with Tubs.

Cue giant, ‘ZUUUUH?’ from a huge segment of the population.

The show may have won a Bafta recently, and its fans may be seriously committed, but there are lots of people who’ve never seen it.

SO.  Should you be one of those people, and should you wish to enjoy the Late Late Show and associated tweeting, we’ve got a handy cheatsheet for you.

Here is all you need to know about the key characters of Made in Chelsea.

Spencer, the jerk

He’s a jerk.  A really jerky jerk.

Look at him!  Look how smug he is!

He used to go out with Louise, one of the girls on the show.  He spent some of season 3 pursuing her despite the fact that she was seeing his best friend Jamie, then treated her like rubbish and dumped her in a recent episode.


Cheating, lying, bro code, all of those things play a significant role in Spencer’s life on the show.  Not to mention saying absolutely horrific things to people and looking like a sweaty David Brent.


He’s now going out with Lucy, another one of the show’s characters.  She’s tough though, so hopefully she’ll put some manners on him.

Jamie, the doofus

First of all, he’s way too brown for that hair.

He’s nice boy but he gets very confused around the matter of love, and therefore occasionally hurts people.  He also spends money like a maniac apparently, thus one of his storylines is around his semi-regular meetings with his ‘bank manager’.  They’re always hilarious because of how clearly fake they are, and the fact that his ‘bank manager’ can’t act at all.

He and his mates call themselves the lost boys, because they never want to grow up, and he really takes that idea seriously.  Bromance will always come first for Jamie.

Ollie, the gas ticket

He started out as a straight man with a penchant for Union Jack suits and locks that Fabio would be jealous of.  Now he’s bi, leaning towards gay, wandering around his sexuality like a fawn walking for the first time.

He’s a fiercely loyal friend, and his style has moved away from flags, tg.  He also has great facial expressions.

Millie, the badass

Sophie Duval/EMPICS Entertainment

She’s not in the show much anymore because she’s busy doing things with her fiancé Professor Green (above), but she is the queen of delivering people’s comeuppance.

The slap she gave Spencer in last season’s finale after finding out he’d cheated on her mate Louise was deeply satisfying.

Mark Francis, the poshest man alive

Mark Francis Vandelli is super posh, bitchy and judgey and it’s highly entertaining.

Binky (Yes, Binky), the sounder

Binky is a sounder who has no interest in Spencer which immediately makes her one of the best people on the show.

She also has a gas mam, who recently went on a rant about the fact that Spencer must have an enormous penis which makes women flock to him because there isn’t much else going for him.

And there you have it.  There are others on the show, but most of the action at the moment centres around those guys.  So if you fancy the Late Late tonight, you’re all set!
