Sam Thompson is returning to ‘Made in Chelsea’ and set for an awkward reunion with ex-girlfriend Sophie Habboo, who has been getting close to his pal Jamie Laing.
The former ‘Celebs Go Dating’ star’s return to the E4 show is set to be explosive, as whilst he’s been away, his ex-girlfriend Sophie Habboo has grown very close to his long-time friend Jamie Laing.
In a new teaser for the upcoming 18th series, tensions look set to build after a series of images of Sam and Jamie having fun times together are shown, before a clip of the latter and Sophie – who is nicknamed Habbs – kissing is shown.
Sam had quit the show after six years in March, because he felt uncomfortable being around his ex.
The reality star – who dated Habbs between May and November last year, and was previously in a relationship with co-star Tiff Watson from 2014 until 2017 – admitted:
“Getting dumped all the time was chipping away at my confidence.
“You don’t want to be around your ex.
“Everyone on there is now more her friend and a lot of my friends have upped and left.
“‘[MiC’] takes your soul, you are so invested in it as it is is your real life.”
Meanwhile, cast members Olivia Bentley, Alex Mytton, Mark Francis Vandelli, Miles Nazaire, James Taylor, Sophie Hermann, Harry Barron and Melissa Tattam, Fredrick Ferrier and Eliza Batten are all set to return for the new season.
Whilst, Maeva D’Ascanio, Verity Scarlett Bowditch, Freddie Brown, Amelia Mist, Rosi Mai, Angus Findlay, Hugo Leefe and Sammy Allsop will be back after making their debut last series.
An air date for the new series is yet to be revealed, but a new trailer is “coming soon”.
