For Made in Chelsea fans who thought Alik Alfus’ feud with Ryan Libbey and Louise Thompson was over, episode one just proved you wrong.
During last year’s series 14 of MIC and one of the most talked about moments saw Alik and Ryan violently clash.
Alik, the ex-boyfriend of Louise, baited Ryan with his cocky attitude and flirtatious nature around Louise, forcing the huge 100-kilogram personal trainer into grabbing his co-star by the throat and aggressively pushing him off screen.
Omg when Ryan pushes Alik in mic !!!! My face was legit ?????

So, if you fancy a bit more of that, then series 15 is a must watch!
The return of American Alik was not anticipated by even the most loyal of Made in Chelsea fans, yet here he is popping into a London cafe for breakfast with Ollie Proudlock.
Alik explained that he had decided to move to London and was setting himself up with his own art studio to live in the capital full time.
Ollie, drinking a smoothie that had a celery stick sticking out of it, lead the conversation by explaining that Ryan had given Louise a promise ring.
And, just like all of us reacted, Alik sat there wondering WTF a promise ring was.
He said: “What are we in fifth grade, what’s a promise ring?”
In fact, Alik completely ridiculed the supposed grand gesture from Ryan, laughing at the fact he didn’t actually make a marriage proposal or at least wait until he was ready for the commitment.
And cue the world’s most ANNOYING face . . .
The news that Alik was in town soon whistled around London and was Chinese-whispered to the ears of Ryan and Louise while at dinner.
Louise stressed that her main concern was that boyf, or “promise hubby”, Ryan would not be comfortable with the situation.
So. Erm. Does that look like the face of a ‘comfortable man’?
The trio finally met during Jamie Laing’s mansion party in Exeter, with Alik greeting Ryan and Louise upon arrival.
It looked as if they had settled their differences as Alik brandished the entire situation as “petty”, and the lovers agreed.
But, as Alik walked away, he overheard Louise telling boyfriend Ryan that it was Alik’s fault in the first place.
The following scene of Alik looking back and seemingly listening in on the conversation was painfully scripted, but at least it set up some added drama.
Forgot how disgustingly scripted Made in Chelsea is ?? cringe central

The show ended with Alik back on the attack, venting his frustration at Louise for pinning the blame on him – albeit because he was doing some serious eavesdropping.
