Made in Chelsea season 18 launched on Monday, September 2nd, with Jamie Laing and Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo seemingly continuing their blossoming relationship from the end of last season.
However, Jamie and Habbs’s relationship looked volatile throughout the series – to say the least – with audiences tip-toeing into each episode unsure if the SW3 stars were friends or lovers.
So, what going on between them now? Are Habbs and Jamie still together? Or has the devastating news that Rosi Mai Waldon dropped in episode 1 crippled the relationship?
Here’s everything you need to know about life after Made in Chelsea season 18.

What happened at the end of Made in Chelsea season 17?
The ending to season 17 was one of the most intense and dramatic finales in MIC history.
In the middle of episode 14, it looked as if Jamie and Habbs had decided not to continue their attempts to date as a disastrous first date led to nothing more than awkwardness and a lack of chemistry.
Habbs walked out on the dinner confessing that she simply couldn’t go through with their attempts to spark romance given the hatred she was receiving from close friends.
The most nail-biting scene came as Sophie Hermann attacked Habbs for her actions, calling her a snake for dating Jamie behind Heloise Agostinelli’s (Jamie’s ex) back.
Sh*t really hit the fan…

But, just as all hope was lost, Jamie saved the day with an inspiring comeback speech.
The entire cast was meeting up for an end of season party, where Jamie pulled Habbs to the side and told her that he wanted to be with her and would protect her over any backlash.
Jamie told Habbs:
I think we’re so sweet and we have a great connection… and it’s really annoying that other people get in the way. Look, if you were ever going to consider anything between us, then I swear to you that I will make sure that no-one gives us any sh*t… I just think that I would really regret it if I didn’t walk the plank.
And with that, the pair laughed nervously before launching into a hug and kiss.
With all of the season 17 couples on the dancefloor, MIC 2019 ended with Habbs and Jamie kissing and dancing as if they were the latest power couple on the show.
Are Jamie and Habbs still together during 18?
Habbs and Jamie continued to date and hang out as much as possible.
They were also spotted at Glastonbury festival together, enjoying a spot of glamping with the Made in Chelsea gang, which included Olivia Bentley and Digby, Verity Bowditch, Alex Mytton and more.
Of course, in true MIC style, Habbs explored Glasto by helicopter…
Are Habbs and Jamie still together now?
Made in Chelsea series 18 will come down like a sledgehammer on Jamie and Habbs’s relationship although they manage to come out the other side hand in hand.
Just one episode into the 2019 season and Rosi Mai Waldon admitted to Verity Bowditch that she had slept with Jamie multiple times while he was first starting to see Habbs.
The worst thing about is that I’m sure it was at the same time as he (Jamie) was seeing Habbs. But it wasn’t just once as well. Even after the polo (when Jamie kissed Habbs at the end of series 17), he’s been texting me… he made a really big deal about keeping a secret and now I know why.
Eventually, Jamie’s hand was forced into admitting the fling to Habbs, sparking yet another rocky patch in their relationship.
And that’s not the last of it! Habbs’s ex, Sam Thompson, also returned to the cast, the relationship was put under more scrutiny. The fact they survive series 18 is a credit to their strength as a couple!
Made in Chelsea: Buenos Aires – Jamie and Habbs
Jamie and Habbs still look to be together by the end of series 18. But the pair are certainly on the rocks during the spin-off series in Buenos Aires.
Episode 1 kicks off and Jamie and Habbs are very much OFF.
Jamie has been messaging other girls on Instagram which he says was because he was “sat in the car bored”.
Habbs does her best to not have any of it and sticks to them being broken up. In the midst of all this, Habbs’ handsome ex, Harvey Armstrong, is on the Argentina scene.
Although Habbs and Jamie clearly go through some tough times once again in the Buenos Aires spin-off, Habbs posted to Instagram in November 2019 to wish Jamie a Happy Birthday – so we’re to assume things are still ON!
