Alik Alfus and his dad ruined Louise Thompson and Ryan Libbey’s two-year anniversary by dining at the same restaurant.
Alik, the ex-boyfriend to Louise, has had a running feud with Ryan, which peaked last season when the pair got into a fight.
Whether it was intentional or not, Alik’s appearance at the lovebirds anniversary meal has proved his most potent move yet.
1. Give Yourself a Motive
In every Made in Chelsea episode, Alik Alfus finds a new and unique way to be annoyed by Louise and her relationship with Ryan.
On this occasion, Alik took his ex-girlfriend’s two-year anniversary as a personal vendetta against him.
Yeah, work that one out.
2. Get Back Up
Alik was adamant that he and Louise had split up around 24 months ago. This meant that Louise’s relationship with Ryan may have had a minor crossover period.
Literally, this is all two years ago, yet Alik found comfort in relaying the tale to Mark Francis for moral support.
3. Build Tension
We knew that Ryan was going to pull out all the stops for Louise on their anniversary.
Flowers in the morning were just the starting point, as Ryan admitted that he wanted to “spoil Louise rotten”.
4. Get Your Dad in on the Act
Alik had decided to meet up with his Crocodile Dundee lookalike father, who flew in from Milan while on business from the United States.
And if you thought Alik was unbearable, this was his dad’s text message upon rival…

5. Grab the Best Vantage Point
Victoria, Alik and his dad were placed at dinner enjoying a glass of red wine when Ryan and Louise walked in for their anniversary meal.
How unbearably awkward.
At least Alik had bagged the perfect spot to watch the drama unfold…
6. Gossip Across the Table
Although it wasn’t Alik who directly started talking about Louise – giving himself a two-minute break from the topic – Victoria piped up with a few comments.
Just what you want during a romantic meal…
And it wasn’t just Victoria who couldn’t help but comment on the situation, with Alik’s dad almost insinuating that his son should get up and claim Louise for his own.
7. Send the Wave of Death
Alik continued babbling about how he and Louise were “still together two years ago”, also telling his dad that he had bought Louise an engagement ring.
Ryan looked intensely uncomfortable as Alik’s dad decided to call across the restaurant, saying hello to Louise and giving a sarcastic looking salute to Ryan.
Having enough of the awkward situation and with his big anniversary plans ruined, Ryan stormed off from the dinner, leaving Alik and his crew to continue gossiping.
The wave of death had worked…
