Made in Chelsea Harvey

Harvey Armstrong was introduced on Made in Chelsea in the first episode of MIC: Buenos Aires. Sophie was shocked to see him, and Jamie Laing was absolutely quaking in his boots.

Harvey just happened to be in Argentina on a business trip at the same time Habbs is there for Made in Chelsea – what a coincidence!!

Made in Chelsea in Buenos Aires continues next week.
