Made in Chelsea follows the glamorous lives of some of London’s more social elite. Always impeccably dressed and ready for a party, this group of twenty-somethings know how to have fun and, of course, how to stir up drama. They are ambitious, catty and, some would say, arrogant…
There is heartbreak and betrayal as new bonds are formed, while others are broken. I think it should be stated up-front that this show is almost solely relationship-based. There isn’t a lot of depth that goes into the content or interactions, but if you’re someone who loves to watch an easy-going reality TV show, then this is a good choice.
Personally, I’m not usually a fan of shows like The Hills or Laguna Beach, and I’ve never watched Jersey Shore or the like, but I must admit that I found this strangely addictive. And though, at the start, I was a little hesistant—unsure of what to expect—I found that the more I watched, the more interested I became.
First, there is Caggie and Spencer’s will-they-or-won’t-they relationship status and the complication of his current live-in girlfriend, Funda. Second, there is Mille and Rosie who both seem to have fallen for the same guy, Hugo. Next up in Francis and Frederik vying for the attentions of the beautiful, Agnes. And not to be forgotten is Ollie, Cheska and Binky, as well as the occasional appearance from entrepreneur, Amber Atherton.
Made in Chelsea is the type of light entertainment that could be good for a girl’s night in or even to have playing in the background while you work or cook. The show gives you a glimpse into the world of the privileged and rich, and whether it is partly scripted or not, the constant drama of their lives will have you glancing over at the screen just to see what’s going to unfold next.
