Review: Made In Chelsea series 2 episode 9

Originally seen on kingsroad.co.uk – posted on 16 November. Written by Rachael Grace.

If you’re at the top of the Gherkin or managed to get on board the London Eye at around 10pm this evening, look out for a mushroom cloud lingering around Chelsea and Fulham as things explode with our favourite group of West Londoners in the series 2 finale of Made In Chelsea.

But if you’re wondering who planted the bomb and lit the fuse, take a peek at last week’s glorious review.

Warning: it’ll send you spiralling in excitement like a vulture circling Lamont Road, hunting for Cagg – er, a carcass….

Here’s an excerpt:

 

 

If we weren’t already feeling a little queasy, figuratively speaking, from the run around Caggie has given poor Spencer this summer, then we were borderline nauseous this week as Spencer quite literally drove us around and around… and around the same SW10 block.

Review: Made In Chelsea series 2 episode 8

Originally seen on kingsroad.co.uk – posted on 26 October. Written by Rachael Grace.

In typical Chelsea fashion, we head off to Africah – yeah, that makes a lot of sense – and join the gang randomly let off steam and take a break from…whatever it is they do. Cue camels, Spencer saying the ‘l’ word and Binky’s FANTASTIC geographical skills.

Here’s an excerpt:

 

 

Meanwhile, the boys were back at The Phene this week where Jamie was feeling particularly on top of the weather. “I’m basically like a cow,” he proclaimed, “I can sense when it’s going to rain,” and with that, the boys decided it was the perfect time to get out of London.

Oh yes, we managed to get hold of game playa Spencer Matthews and the cookie monster (well, not really) Jamie Laing for a fab interview. Here’s what they’ve got to say.

Here’s an excerpt:

 

 

Spencer Matthews and Jamie Laing took a break from all the drama of this week’s episode to chat to us about girls, bromances, lucky charms, and those chat up lines that never fail. Champagne in hand, the boys are in high spirits…

Review: Made In Chelsea series 2 episode 7

Originally seen on kingsroad.co.uk – posted on 26 October. Written by Rachael Grace.

I’ve almost finished my collection of seen Made In Chelsea cast members during my walks in and around Chelsea and Fulham. See, this is what this show has turned me into: a discombobulated meerkat – British, not Russian – who drops his tea cup if he sees one of them walking down Fulham Road or the King’s Road. It’s a sad life.

Before I start mentioning comparison websites, the latest episode of Made Chelsea sees Millie and the mustard man, Hugo, in a climatic battle over some “information that’ll dramatically change everything”, taking a gap yah in Spain and HELLO HELLO, GABILICIOUS IS BACK. There’s something about the name, isn’t there?

Here’s an excerpt:

Review: Made In Chelsea series 2 episode 6

Originally seen on kingsroad.co.uk – posted on 26 October. Written by Rachael Grace.

I think I think – I just about think, this tweet sums up the hardship us people living in SW3, SW10 and parts of SW6 face every single day:

Another week, another runaround in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea with our favourite TV neighbours. Monday’s episode had everything from horses, cricket bats, a giant talking biscuit and 2 arses floating around in the swimming pool because their owners felt the need to take off their last defence.

It’s so totes good, that I almost made a little vomcano with all those little chunklets and all.

Here’s an excerpt:

 

 

“I can DJ” Francis offered, (we are in a recession after all.) Is there no end to the aptitude of Chelsea’s most eligible body boarding bachelor, “Internet mogul” and “diamond dealer?” “I’m also quite interested in topiary” he grinned at the boys, “You like to shape a bush?” Hugo asked…
