Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing is back on the singles market and already has both Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo and Verity Bowditch queuing up at the kissing booth.

SW3’s most eligible bachelor has always been renown for having a girl around his arm, whether it’s Frankie Gaff, Tiffany Watson or a petit French model.

The latest to be rumoured with a romance with J-man is MIC newbie Verity , who seems to be enjoying her first season on the Channel 4 show thanks to a flirty relationship with Jamie.

Here’s a timeline from J-man’s break with El to his potential new love life…

Jamie splits up with El

At the start of April, things were seemingly all groovy between Jamie Laing and girlfriend Heloise Agostinelli.

However, following an absence of Instagram photos together, Jamie dropped the bombshell that he and Ell had broken up during a mid-May Made in Chelsea episode.

Jamie never explained why, only adding that he loosely put the idea to Ell and she accepted. Sounds like he shot himself in the foot…

Sophie Habboo is thrust into the picture

Literally, out of nowhere, Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo was thrust into the J Laingz dilemma when Jamie unintentionally spilt the news that he fancied her during a drunken night in the Cape Town episode.

Totting up the facts and rumours, it sounds like perhaps Jamie and Habbs had a quick fling in Cape Town while filming for Made in Chelsea.

The pair have been quick to stress that they’re definitely not dating. Jamie addressed the rumours in the latest M.I.C Drop podcast:

The article said that Sophie and I are dating, and that’s not true. I reached out to Sam and spoke to him and explained the situation but I haven’t heard from him since. So it’s obviously a tricky scenario to deal with cus’ I haven’t heard from him.

Jamie clicks with Verity

The romance that looks far more likely is that between Jamie and Verity.

Immediately clicking during a meet and greet dinner with Olivia Bentley and co to celebrate Jamie’s re-birth into the single world, Verity and Jamie displayed natural chemistry.

In episode 8, they enjoyed a sort of unofficial date.

Are Jamie Laing and Verity dating?

They’re just about to.

Neither Verity or Jamie are parading themselves around on Instagram madly in love.

However, episode 11 of the current 2019 season will see Verity ask out Jamie on a date, where they start to cross the bridge from friendship to a relationship.

Only time will tell if they successfully manage to clear the Habboo hurdles and fall madly in love.
