Things had got pretty awkward between them, after Harvey started dating her former bestie and house mate Emily Blackwell in season 19.

Emily wasn’t over the moon that Harvey had travelled down to Cornwall, where his ex Habbs was also going to be.

Habbs and Harvey agreed to be civil, but it got messy when Harvey told Emily that Habbs became “touchy” and had gone down memory lane.

In the upcoming episode, it looks like it all kicks off, with Emily not knowing who to believe and Harvey storming off from their date.

Habbs and Harvey: Relationship timeline

Back in 2017, Harvey turned down an offer to appear on Made in Chelsea when he was dating Habbs, as reported by the Daily Mail.

However, Habbs split up with him and went on the show one week later, when Harvey had just left Newcastle University.

They were together throughout Harvey’s whole time at university, meaning they must have been together for at least three years.

Since their split, Habbs went on to date Alex Mytton and Sam Thompson, and is now in a relationship with Jamie Laing.

  • They were going through a rough patch when they split

When Habbs and Harvey broke up, it was revealed they were going through a rough patch, but that she split up with him just before joining MIC.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Habbs told Harvey not to go on the show, but when producers became interested in them as a couple, she accepted.

Harvey had turned down the offer due to having accounting exams at university, and because he didn’t want it to interfere with their relationship.

Three years on and they are both in their own relationships…
