Made in Chelsea season 17 saw Jamie Laing and Heloise Agostinelli part ways.

Jamie was introduced to the petit French model in 2018 and the pair dated for almost a year before the break up.

Despite a 10-year age gap, fans were in shock that their relationship abruptly came to a stop with the pair looking smitten on MIC and social media.

Here’s everything you need to know and El and her family.


Why did Heloise and Jamie split up?

In the Made in Chelsea episode 7, Jamie Laing confirmed that he had split up with Ell.

The blonde-haired McVities heir announced to Alex Mytton and Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo that he was a single man, although it came as something of a bombshell.

Jamie has not elaborated on the break up other than explaining that it was a mutual decision. He now appears to be dating fellow SW3 cast member Habbs.

Heloise Agostinelli: Dad

Heloise is the daughter of Italian-American self-made billionaire financier Robert Agostinelli.

Big Rob is the 416th richest American, according to Forbes, and is valued at around $1 billion.

His staggering wealth would almost earn him a spot in the top 100 richest Brits, and makes Jamie Laing’s £2 million net worth look like pocket money.

Roberto made his money as the chairman and director of private equity firm Rhône Group.

Heloise Agostinelli: Brothers

Heloise actually has three brothers and is the youngest from a family of four.

The eldest is Giovanni Agostinelli, who is 32 years old and lives in London. Massimo Agostinelli also lives in London and is 31 years old.

Sadly, Heloise’s other brother, Stefano, passed away in 2008 around June 13th. He was just 16 years old at the time. Ell would have been nine years old when he passed away.

Ell took the time to pay tribute to her older brother on Instagram with a post that read:

It’s been 11 years now since we lost you.  Although the years go by, the hole is just as big and there will always be a missing piece in our hearts. I miss and think about you every day. Thank you for protecting me and loving me from above. I hope you are proud of me and are looking down on me with a smile. I try to live each day in your honour and will carry on doing so forever. Whenever I go through hard times, I think of you and know that I will be okay. I love you. Your lil sis x.
