Alex Mytton needs to up his game


If you go on a huge reality TV show like Made in Chelsea, you're going to get loads of Instagram followers. But with lots of followers, come lots of fake ones too.

Fake followers can be bought, or just simply bot accounts that follow influencers and famous people to look legit. Either way, the Made in Chelsea cast have a lot of them.

Here's a rundown of how many fake followers the Made in Chelsea cast have on Instagram, according to IG Audit.

Jamie Laing – 22 per cent fake

Considering Eliza Batten has one of the lowest follower counts of the Made in Chelsea cast, she still has a decent percentage of fake followers. She hasn't been on the show that long and has got 27k followers, but only 78 per cent of those are real.

However, Eliza gets loads more likes than expected for that account size. She should be expecting around 913 likes per post, but she actually gets a huge 1.8k on average!! That's double the expected amount. It probably helps that she's a super cool uni student with a vibey feed.
