Alexandra ‘Binky’ Felstead is a Made in Chelsea original.

She first joined the show in 2011 and appeared on our screens for six years.

We all got to see her and boyfriend Josh ‘JP’ Patterson’s ups and downs but now neither of them are here for series 16.

So what happened to Binky? And why did she leave?

Binky is a Mum

Binky left in season 13 as she was pregnant with her and JP’s first baby.

On June 12th 2017 Binky gave birth to their daughter, India.

JP and Binky had their own show on channel 4 called Born in Chelsea which followed the couple and their new baby.

Are JP and Binky Still Together?

Since they had their daughter, JP and Binky split up in September 2018.

Binky put out a public message on her Instagram: “it is with a heavy heart we have to tell you that we have decided to separate as a couple”.

However, the pair are still staying friends to co-parent.

Binky’s Business Ventures

Binky is an ambassador for FIIT.

FIIT is an app that provides interactive fitness classes that you can do in your living room.

She also has 1.4m followers on Instagram so advertising products is a pretty easy way for Binky to rake in the cash.

She posts ads for Abbott Lyon watches, Breyers Delights UK, Pampers UK and more.

Binky Felstead InTheStyle

Binky also has a clothing collection with In the Style.

Her range includes polka dot playsuits, playful dresses, jumpsuits, crop tops and culottes.
