If you’ve ever watched an episode of Made In Chelsea - never mind 21 seasons - you’ll know you’re not watching your reality in a series, it’s quite literally ‘how the other half live’.

It’s exactly that format - money, drama and unrelatable issues which usually revolve around relationships or money - that has made the London-based series so entertaining.

He left the show in series 19 following a massive break up with french girlfriend Maeva D’Ascanio, who went on to date his best mate James Taylor.

Paris is relatively new to the MIC cast, but she’s no rookie to the social circle of dinner in expensive restaurants, cocktail parties and polo.

A close friend of Amelia Mist, she is a model and socialite and animal welfare activist. She admitted following being cast in the show that she was scared of being portrayed as ‘the angry black woman,’ but fans have been overwhelmingly positive about her appearance on the show.
