Made in Chelsea has been lingering on our television screens with its awkward silences, long stares and not-so-subtle editing techniques for more than a year now.And yet, even though we can be unequivocally certain that the cast members are young, rich and spoilt, questions still abound as to how these 20-something Chelsea-dwelling socialites are able to boast such financial stability. The privileged societal positioning the ‘MIC’ crew enjoys is due in a large part to their parents.As if this wasn’t enough, Sir Phillip also counts Kate Moss as a close friend.Chloe confesses to being a girly girl at heart, she owns over 30 pairs of Louboutins and has recently been romantically linked to QPR footballer Djibril Cisse.Utilising her reality TV fame to her advantage, Rosie has long since set up “At Fashion Forte”, her own fashion blog.Binky Felstead We can only speculate as to what Binky Felstead’s parents do.Hugo Taylor Recent contestant Hugo Taylor is probably best remembered for having a martini thrown in his face by ex-girlfriend Millie.We wonder what his well-to-do father, who just happens to be a QC, would think of that.
Not only did he try his chances at finding love on the French Riveria as the manufactured babe magnet on Channel 5’s , but his parents own one of the most luxurious hotels in St Barts; Eden Rock.
Even if he never said a word and was simply introduced all the time as Francis Maximilien Yvan Christophe Boulle, he fits the requirements of the show’s cast.
Furthermore when you consider he lists diamond trading among his credentials and the fact that he has often appeared in Tatler’s Little Black Book of most eligible bachelors, he starts to sound like he could become a Bond villain.
We wonder what proud offspring will be receiving this business in years to come.
Francis Boulle Born Francis Maximilien Yvan Christophe Boulle, it’s no surprise he landed a part in Made in Chelsea.
