Series 17 of Made in Chelsea is right around the corner (launching March 25th), with the smash hit reality show returning to our TV screens in late March.

The brand new season is sure to bring a whole bunch of brand new scandals, some of which are likely to involve the seven new castmates joining the Chelsea gang.

So before it all kicks off in SW3, here are five things you need to know about Made in Chelsea newbie Freddie Browne.

Made in Chelsea season 17

He’s not actually from Chelsea

According to his Instagram bio, Freddie is a ‘Born and bred Borough boy’.

Presumably, this means he’s from the wider area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, but that’s pretty much Chelsea so we will let him off.

Freddie loves to party

It’s nothing new for boys on Instagram to proclaim how much they love partying and it looks like Freddie is no different.

But given that he’s posh, it’s more champagne soirées than student house parties.

He’s a Potterhead

From the looks of this Instagram post, Freddie might be a grown-up Harry Potter fan.

It’s unclear whether Freddie was the one who defaced the bathroom mirror with an ode to the children’s books, but he seemed pretty keen to take a cheeky selfie in front of it for the ‘gram.

Freddie loves vintage cars

According to Freddie, he’s putting three vintage Aston Martins on his Christmas list this year.

To most, this would seem like wishful thinking, but given that he’s a Chelsea Boy it probably isn’t too far fetched for Santa to get him these kinds of gifts.

Freddie only joined social media in January

According to his Instagram, Freddie’s first post was in January of this year.

Given that he only has 521 followers it seems fair to say that this is a new profile, however, we suspect that he probably has a private account elsewhere.
