Since Made in Chelsea season 17 wrapped up on June 17th, fans have been desperately waiting for the next instalment of SW3 drama.

From Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo’s forbidden love with Jamie Laing to the saga that surrounds Maeva D’Ascanio, James Taylor and Miles Nazaire, the 2019 series proved a big hit for fans of the long-serving E4 series.

A Made in Chelsea summer series often follows in the footsteps of each of the regular seasons, with the gang eloping to the likes of Croatia, LA and Ibiza over the past few years.

So what about 2019? Are the gang heading on a lavish holiday this time around? Here’s everything you need to know about the 2019 Made in Chelsea summer series!

Will there be a Made in Chelsea abroad special this year?

Maybe… but not this summer.

The Made in Chelsea international series have been running since 2015 and have included destinations such as New York, LA, the South of France, Ibiza and, most recently, Croatia.

They usually air in October, a couple of months after each series has finished.

This isn’t the case in 2019, however, with a brand new series of MIC returning to E4 in September instead.

Made in Chelsea season 18 is here!

Made in Chelsea season 18 has been confirmed for September 2nd.

Episode 1 will air on E4 at 9 pm before each episode will continue in the same timeslot.

Sam Thompson has also confirmed that he will be back on the show and is expected to confront Jamie Laing directly about how he swiftly jumped in bed with his ex, Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo.

Sam is also likely to wheel now-girlfriend Zara McDermott onto the show, who joins the cast with plenty of fans having previously starred in Love Island 2018, where Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham won.

If they head abroad… where are they going?

Jamie Laing was recently in Japan while Habbs has been spotted in both Marbella and Portugal. All of which are viable options.

Given the fact the MIC crew spend their summers covering just about every corner of the globe, it must difficult for producers to find a way of actually getting them together.

Olivia Bentley and boyfriend Digby, Alex Mytton, Miles Nazaire, Jamie and Habbs, Verity Bodwitch and selection of others were at Glastonbury 2019 together over summer.

And, naturally, they MIC gang did it by helicopter.
