We miss you Pruders!
Made In Chelsea is back on our screens on Monday 10th October, but the 2016 cast looks a lot different to when it started back in 2011. Sure, we’ve still got originals Binky Felstead, Rosie Fortescue and our eternal etiquette icon Mark Francis, but what happened to Hugo, Oliver Proudlock and Spencer’s only true love, Caggie?! We found out…
She was the only woman to ever truly tame Spencer Matthews, but Caggie ditched the love lothario and the show after three series, focusing on her career as a singer-songwriter instead. Cags has since released a single, Neverland, and launched a clothing and accessories line ISWAI (It Started With An Idea).
Do we even need to introduce Miss Mackintosh?! The make-up artist has become a fashion icon in her own right, with a seriously covetable clothing collection, too. Millie is also a fitness freak and globetrotter, posting her intense workouts and sun-soaked bikini snaps to her 1.2million Instagram followers. She's an InStyle fashion shoot star and back together with ex (but now current) boyfriend Hugo Taylor.
Millie’s ex-now-current boyfriend kept a fairly low profile after he left the show after series 3, but did star in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, finishing in 5th place. Hugo originally worked as a party promoter, but now has a luxury sunglasses line, Taylor Morris.

We believe in Miracles, Gabriella! The half-Greek songstress left after four series, after a tumultuous relationship with Ollie Locke and one crazy night with Jamie Laing. Gabriella has actually had a number 1 hit single in Greece, and now lives in LA working on her music career. She’s a redhead, too!
Pruders! Except for rocking that single cross earring like no other, we’re not entirely sure what Oliver did before MIC, but these days he’s most busy running his clothing line, Serge De Nimes, and occasionally modeling for menswear designer pal Joshua Kane. After a surprise appearance in the finale of MIC: South Of France, Proudlock will be BACK for series 12, and we can't wait.

Remember Fredrik, the Icelandic model who answers phone calls topless and upside down? Well, his Instagram is now private (boo!), but Fredrik’s Twitter bio describes him as a ‘singer’. He’s still got those long blonde locks - you can check them out when he returns for Made In Chelsea season 12! Kept that one quiet, Fred!
Jewellery entrepeneur Amber has done pretty well for herself, even before Made In Chelsea hit our screens. The founder of MyFlashTrash (remember her launch party in the first episode?!), Amber mentored young entrepeneurs for CBBC and also made Forbes 30 under 30 list – impressive! She’s also one half of DJ duo, Birch&Amber.
Francis made a surprise comeback on MIC: South Of France, after quietly dropped out of filming back in series 6. The skateboarding diamond miner is still trading in precious metals and gems, and wrote a book (Boulle’s Jewels) on how to succeed in the business of life. We can't wait to see how his love life continues in series 12.
The swimwear designer and daughter of a property developer made waves as Richard Dinan’s girlfriend in series 3 of Made In Chelsea, where Binky and Cheska did everything they could to make the relationship as awkward as possible. Kimberley slid out of MIC after only one series, and now concentrates on her swimwear line.
Funda might have only starred in the first series of the show, but we’ll never forget her fiery romance with Spencer Matthews. The dancer and model has fronted campaigns for Nike and Adidas, as well as music videos from Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah and Kid Cudi. She has had a few small film roles, including British indie crime flick Two Days In The Smoke.
Cast members didn’t come more controversial than Phoebe Lettice, who managed to stir up trouble with Lucy Watson, Cheska and ex cast member Fran Newman Young. The stylist has since bagged herself the Creative Director position at Illustrated People.
