Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing has addressed the issue surrounding him, Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo and friend Sam Thompson.

Season 17 of the E4 series has opened up a potential romantic relationship between Jamie and Habbs.

However, Habbs is Sam’s ex-girlfriend, and the tabloid newspapers have gone to town slamming Jamie for his actions and claiming that Sam has been left distraught.

In the weekly Made in Chelsea M.I.C drop podcast, Jamie addressed all of these issues and finally explained what is going on with Habbs.

What is actually going on between Jamie and Habbs?

Err, not a lot.

Neither of the stars have confirmed that they have kissed, cuddled, slept together or anything romantic.

Although the fact the Made in Chelsea Cape Town episode was set up with only four bedrooms and eight cast members does hint that something could have happened to ignite this sudden romance.

Jamie confirmed in his M.I.C drop podcast that the pair are definitely not dating – still, anything could happen over the remaining Made in Chelsea season 17 episodes.

J-man said:

The article said that Sophie and I are dating, and that’s not true.

Sophie added:

Firstly, it’s not true (that she is officially dating Jamie), so it’s false things being out there.

What has happened between Jamie and Sam Thompson?

The next problem on the agenda is how Sam may have reacted upon the news his ex and his best mate were romantically connected.

Although The Sun reported that Sam was left ‘devastated by the news’, Jamie has said that there is no truth in this.

However, his long-time pal is giving him the silent treatment while the romantic saga sorts itself out.

Jamie said:

I reached out to Sam and spoke to him and explained the situation but I haven’t heard from him since. So it’s obviously a tricky scenario to deal with cus’ I haven’t heard from him.


The problem is that in the press, things have come out like ‘Sam Thompson feel betrayed because Sophie Habboo are dating’. And that’s pretty awkward, it gets a lot of people upset. my ex-girlfriend is upset (Heloise Agostinelli), Sam’s upset, Habbs’s friends are upset.

What’s going to happen in Made in Chelsea?

It looks like season 17 will follow Habbs and Jamie’s drama as they either step forward with their relationship or slip back into the friend-zone.

Sam – alongside sister Louise – is taking a break from the TV series, so at least he won’t be dragged along for the bumpy road ahead.
