Reality TV Interview

Made in Chelsea: What we learned from Jamie, Proudlock and Fran

By and Caitlin Layton
We've been lingering outside the Bluebird. We've been including awkward silences in our conversations. We've been donning our tweed. But we can't match up to the real stars of Made in Chelsea... so we can't wait to see what they have in store in the new series! It's just a few days away now (it's back on Monday, Monday!) so we caught up with Jamie Laing, Oliver Proudlock and Fran Newman-Young for a chat over sweeties (but where was the Candy Kittens merch?). Read on to find out what we learned from them...

1. It's going to be the best series yet. Obviously.
Jamie: "It's always the best series yet!"
Proudlock: "It somehow gets better and better. It somehow always gets better and better."
Jamie: "It's like a snowball going down a hill - it just gets bigger and bigger."
Proudlock: "When you start a new season, you're always a bit like, 'Oh, it's a bit slow, it doesn't really get going', and then you think, 'I just can't see what's going to happen'. Then about halfway through you have a chat and go, 'Oh my God, it's got ridiculous again'."
Jamie: "Basically, we're all really nasty people. We're just horrible to each other for some reason."

2. Jamie and Proudlock thought Spencer's joy about Lucy-Jamie was a bit weird too.
Proudlock: "What an ending to last series! My favourite bit is when they were in the carriage and Spenny was to my left going, 'Wooo!' That was my favourite bit, that was awesome."
Jamie: "Cheering me on with his ex-girlfriend... Like a cheerleader. 'Come on! Yes!'"

3. Speaking of Lucy, Jamie knows he failed her test. "Miserably."
Jamie: "It was left very uncertain at the end of last series. So I kind of said to her, 'What do you want?' and she said to me, 'Let's see what happens'. And in my eyes, that kind of meant a no, in a weird kind of way. So then I went to Miami... I think in Lucy's eyes it was a test for me and I failed the test! Miserably! Miserably. I always fail tests as well. I was never good at school. That's kind of what happened. Probably in her eyes it was never going to really work in that sense. But I love Lucy, I think she's amazing. And who knows, we'll see what happens."

4. Fran is being very tight-lipped about her dates with Sam. But, er, she doesn't necessarily feel so good about that mix CD.
Proudlock: "They were awesome! They were so good."
Fran: "My parents really enjoyed that, I have to say. Is anything happening there? I wouldn't like to give anything away! You'll have to see! I still have the CD, I actually do."
Jamie: "What was on the CD?"
Fran: "A little bit of James Blunt. What I liked was on the back of it, he put some typos in and printed out the typos with the red squiggly lines underneath. And some tracks were missing which he said were on there which I was really excited about... It was magic. I'll lend it to you guys."
Jamie: "I can't wait."
Fran: "He's naked on the front of it as well."
Jamie: "Oh, he is? Can I get a copy of that as well? I'm excited. Oh my God, let's all make CDs for each other."

5. The trio have, well, mixed feelings about Andy Jordan's music. We found out when we asked what they'd put on their mix CDs.
Proudlock: "I really like John Legend, 'All Of Me'. That's one of my favourites right now. I'm really into that song."
Jamie: "My first would be A$AP Rocky - 'F**kin' Problems'. 'Son of a Preacher Man' - one of my favourite ones."
Fran: "Obviously some Andy Jordan as well..."
Jamie: "No, that wouldn't be on there! Am I going to see him on tour? Haha, no! No, listen, he's done amazingly well. To be honest, he has... He's sold out, like, the O2."
Fran: "He's sold out the O2?"
Jamie: "I don't know, has he?"

6. The bromance is still strong - but what's going on with Francis?
Proudlock: "It's still strong."
Jamie: "Oh God, yeah. No, it is, of course. We're still living together."
Proudlock: "Francis isn't at the moment. He's still around but he's not in our crib at the moment."
Jamie: "He's around all these things but he's back and forth at the moment from Ghana doing gold mining."
Proudlock: "He's finding us some gold so we can all get a big crib."
Jamie: "We really love gold so he went and found it for us."

7. There will be some more foreign trips this series.
Fran: "There are definitely some in there - there always are."
Jamie: "We love holidaying. Everyone loves holidays! Ollie and I are very busy so we probably won't be going. We run a business, so we can't too much. It stopped me going to Dubai, weirdly. When everyone went to Dubai and Spenny got with Louise. Oh no, it was my bank manager. It had nothing to do with business. I just had no money! But of course, we always go on holiday, we always try to if we can, if we find a moment. And we always say the seasons get better but honestly, once again, it's great. It's epic. It's exciting. And also, if you're in the drama or you're not in the drama, or you're in relationships or not in relationships, it's always exciting to see - and we love gossiping, God."
Fran: "We like talking about people's relationships."
Jamie: "A lot! So it's fun to see what's going on."

8. The trio don't worry about what other people will think of what they're saying - but they're worried about it now...
Fran: "I try not to think about it while I'm doing it, but that's probably not the best way to go about it. I'm looking forward to some people's reactions to some things I've said."
Jamie: "I think that's a good thing about the show. With the other shows, with The Only Way Is Essex, they watch it and they see it happen and then they can react. We don't know what we've said and we kind of forget, so we watch it when it's all edited and done. That bit is so magical on our show - everything is so real, because you don't have a chance to rethink things, you just do it. You just live your life and whatever happens happens, and you then forget about it because it's in the past."
Fran: "And also you could be fighting but then be best friends by the time the scene comes around, so you have to just get over it. You have to not have any grudges."
Jamie: "We watch the show together - that bit's epic! You sit there and you realise it's coming and you sink into your chair - 'Oh, God'. But no, it's great. It's really fun."

9. There is a very strong girls vs boys debate going on in Chelsea. And it kicked off because we asked about Cheska and Victoria (oops).
Fran: "I think with Cheska and Victoria, they weren't necessarily friends in the first place, and I think Victoria may be a little bit catty, but as long as she apologises then I'm sure they can move on from it. And she genuinely means it. So we'll see how that goes."
Jamie: "The girls are worse than the guys."
Fran: "We are so not! The guys are so much worse!"
Proudlock: "When we fight we get over it quickly and we move on. You girls let it bubble."
Jamie: "And you talk about each other behind each other's backs!"
Fran: "I don't think we're that bad..."
Proudlock: "[laughs] Oh come on, are you kidding?"
Fran: "I would never bitch about any of my close friends, and if it's anyone else, then..."
Jamie: "You do!"
Fran: "If we're enemies at the time I would."
Jamie: "Yeah, but close friends girls still bitch about."
Proudlock: "Girls just can't let it go."
Fran: "It's just helpful criticism. Behind their back..."
Jamie: "If boys argue, we kind of get over it."
Fran: "That is a good trait of boys. You guys are equally bitchy about the girls, though."
Jamie: "We hate the girls! No, we love them really."
Fran: "It's a family."
Jamie: "In families, at the end you do come back together. You have family arguments, hate each other, love each other at some points. That's why there's such a contrast between love and hate. And I also think love is so closely connected to hate and that's why it can happen."
Proudlock: "Wise words!"

10. There could be new faces causing trouble...
Fran: "There are always new people that come in. Always. There are definitely some causing some fireworks. There's always lots of drama."

11. We could be in for some big surprises.
Fran: "There's a lot in this series especially that viewers can genuinely relate to. There are make-ups and break-ups - something that people from whatever background can definitely relate to."
Proudlock: "Quite a lot of the time when things are going on, most of the time, we know if something is going to come up. In this season, there is one thing in particular that I literally was like, 'Oh my God! I did not see that coming!' And it's moments like that that are going to make this season stronger than any other season, and the viewers are going to be like, 'Wow!'"

Made in Chelsea returns with its new series on Monday (April 7) at 10pm on E4.
