It’s official: The new series of Made in Chelsea is coming VERY soon


It's official. God is real. Life is great. Made in Chelsea is back. If like me, you wake up every single morning and think 'today is a day closer to when the new Made in Chelsea will start', then you'll be pleased to know that the new series is coming very soon. Filming is officially underway, and the countdown is on.

Here is everything we know about the newest episodes of MIC.

When is series 17 of Made in Chelsea being released?

Made in Chelsea season 17 is expected to air in Spring 2019. That means it will drop in the next couple of months.

Has it been filmed?

Filming has officially started – so it's definitely coming back!! Members of the cast have been spotted doing some filming around Durham – which is where newbie Eliza Batten goes to university.

A sign in the area the production team were at, read: "Today's events are being recorded by Monkey Kingdom Limited for a television programme entitled 'Made In Chelsea Series 17'.

The filming notice spotted in Durham

In short, if you walk around the area you will become an extra on Made in Chelsea, and they have the rights to use the footage of you parading around Durham forever. Sounds fun tbh.

Who will be in the cast?

Well favourites like Sam Thompson, Louise Thompson, Ryan Libbey, Liv Bentley, Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo etc. were big parts in the last series so they HAVE to be back.

And Eliza Batten and James Taylor were spotted filming in Durham so they are definitely going to be part of the cast. Eliza is pally with Tristan Phipps, Melissa Tattam and Miles Nazaire, who's friends with Sophie Hermann, who's friends with Fredrik Ferrier – so basically they are all back.

Where will you be able to watch it?

Made in Chelsea has always been on E4, on Mondays at 9pm.

How many people watch MIC?

Made in Chelsea seemed to be on a downwards spiral of less and less viewers, and there were even calls to get it taken down completely. However, season 16 saw a huge increase in numbers again. Series 16 had an average of 995,000 viewers per episode, which is the third highest ratings since the series began. It peaked with season seven in 2014, which had 1.1million average viewers per episode.
