Made in Chelsea series 16 introduced us to a host of new characters, including Tristan Phipps.

Trist was introduced into SW3 during episode 4 when things started to develop between Liv and her new flame, Harison, and Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo and Tristan Phipps.

Here are five things you need to know about Tristan!

Tristan Loves Animals

From Tristan’s Insta it looks as though this handsome newbie fancies himself as a bit of a conservationist.

Tristan describes himself in his bio as a “Quintessential traveller/ Nature Lover” and he’s worked as a Southern African Travel Specialist for the last six months.

Before that he worked for a year and a half as a Walking Safari Guide in the Kruger National Park.

His Ex Was in MIC!

Tristan used to go out with Made in Chelsea’s Ella Wills.

The ‘brainy blonde’ was in MIC series 13.

She certainly looks like Miss Popular with 85.6k followers on Instagram!

Tristan is a Boxer

Fitness and food are two other points in Tristan’s Instagram bio and it looks like he wasn’t lying.

Tristan’s currently training for a charity boxing fight.

The Lady Garden Rumble takes place on November 17th at Battersea Park.

He’s a Thrill Seeker

Tristan’s Instagram is filled with amazing travelling photos.

From driving across America to an African safari – Tristan’s doing it all.

He knows how to keep his 1,157 Instagram followers happy.

Tristan is an Explorer

We already know Tristan loves nature.

But hiking 4000 metres to see a volcano erupt? That’s a whole other level.

This guy’s seriously into mother nature.

BONUS: Tristan is Now Dating Laura Crane

Tristan announced in mid-January 2019 that he was dating Love Island 2018 star Laura Crane.

Laura was dating Jack Fowler from the ITV series although they split up a few weeks after leaving the villa.
