Sporting a lavender suit, Nazaire shared to his Instagram stories: “I am dressed to impress this morning because yeah, you guessed it. We’re back baby. Take that as you will. What does that mean?

Are Miles and Julius back for the new season?
Nazaire is returning for Made in Chelsea’s new season despite speaking about potentially leaving the series. In an interview on the Secure Insecure podcast, the 27-year-old explained: “I’ve done [Made in Chelsea] for five years plus now, and there’s new people on the show, and there are new people coming onto the show, and they’re very young and they’ve got the drive to be in all the drama.”
He continued: “I love it. I look at them and I think, ‘Oh my God, embrace it. Just have the best time.’ I remember the first three years of Chelsea was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. Even if I had arguments or stressful moments, I was like, ‘This is so fun, I’m on TV!’” Nazaire added: “I think, now, I’m not worried about having loads of screen time, I’m really not. I like the fact that now I’m now becoming one of the OGs.”
The reality TV star has previously opened up about the impact being on Made in Chelsea has on his personal life. Reported by OK, speaking on his Playtime podcast, he explained: “Recent times [on the show], I think I’ve had a bit of a backlash. A lot of people who know me, know that’s not a true representation of who I am. Doing a show for the last five years, and let’s be real, my “character” on the show has been the f*** boy. There’s a part of me that’s a bit sick of it.”
However, fellow cast member Julius Cowdrey has since confirmed he is leaving the show and will not feature in any new episodes. The reality star shared the news in February 2023. Reported by Grazia, Cowdrey revealed on the Secure Insecure podcast that online abuse helped him make the decision to leave. He explained: “Everything with Made In Chelsea is short-lived, nothing is long-term, apart from maybe the friendships you form. I looked at my life after I’d just turned 30 and I’d been to all these amazing countries for filming and thought, now is a good time for me to go.” He added: “I need to focus all my energies on things that actually I’m going to do for the rest of my life. I’m also in a relationship as well now and I’m really happy. Does my life exist on the show anymore? I don’t think it does.”
