Eliza Made In Chelsea: From Uni To MIC To Lockdown

A university graduate and successful model, she is raising money for those in need during lockdown. So just who is Eliza from Made in Chelsea?

The lives of the rich and famous. We scoff, moan and groan as we sit down to watch every single episode that grace our screens. Maybe we’re just jealous…

As the young socialites go about their business, we revel in the drama-filled madness of being in love, suffering heartbreak and just having lots and lots of money.

Each season as a lot of our favourite cast members returning to the show alongside an injection of fresh faces.

In series 16, Eliza Batten stepped out of her black Rolls Royce and into the realm of Made in Chelsea.

Here is everything you need to know about the university graduate from dating to her riches.

She Studied Anthropology At Durham University

Eliza attended Durham University, studying Anthropology (the study of humans). According to her Instagram stories, she had a pretty good time at Hatfield college with her Instagram stories detailing her antics from nights out to initiations to takeaways.

Finishing her dissertation in May, Eliza was unable to get her traditional ‘holding up your dissertation outside your university building’ due to the Coronavirus lockdown. So naturally she adapted and photoshopped one.

She Is A Successful Model

During her time there – as well as studying we presume – Eliza was a model for the Durham University Charity Fashion Show.

Since walking the catwalk, Eliza has done shoots for brand Taylor Morris, Corinthia London and models for Morville Beachwear. She has even walked in London Fashion Week.

Is There A Little Something Between Her And James Taylor?

There are some serious rumours circulating regarding how close Eliza and James are on the show.

Yet, nothing is ever simple in reality television land and James was caught up in a love triangle between Verity Bowditch and Rosi Mai. So, who knows?

Her Instagram Is To Die For

But don’t follow her if you suffer from extreme jealousy. Joining the MIC cast with 3,000 followers, Eliza now has 54k. And her Instagram is boujee AF.

Making good use of her passport, Eliza has travelled to Peru, Bali and India.

Using Lockdown For Charity Work

Using those Instagram followers for good, Eliza is now helping those most in need during the Coronavirus pandemic.

When lockdown first came in to force in March, the influencer moved home to self-isolate with her family.

After visiting a local food bank, she was inspired to raise money through Depop – a social fashion marketplace.

Posting her success on Instagram, Eliza captioned her photo:

“£1500 raised for UK anti-racism charities: @s_lawrencetrust & @southallblacksisters ⭐️ Thank you to everyone who donated clothes / shopped & a special mention to my mum and sister who do the not so glamorous jobs behind the scenes.”
