Fans on Twitter were left in stitches as episode seven of Made in Chelsea saw Francis Boulle relive his passion for ballet.

Prepping for a ballet recital, it’s safe to say that Francis was a little out of practice.

Like a lot, a little…

Practice Makes Perfect  

Attempting to rekindle the form that saw Francis smash Swan Lake at the age of four, he took to the dance studio with a select few of the MIC crew.

And for those who want a slow-mo of Franc prancing around in his leotard…

Naturally, Victoria Baker-Harber wasn’t to be toppled by Francis and his very below-par ballet skills, top trumping his “I started at four years old” with a typically stuck-up comment.

She also had silver-dipped ballet shoes…

Cute? Or just horrendously over the top and expensive?

Shaking Off the Cobwebs

It’s safe to say that Francis’s transition into the art of ballet wasn’t exactly smooth.

Should a pirouette look like this?

 

Franc even found the ballet basics excruciatingly difficult, proving that the ability to be supple and limber isn’t something you can instantly switch on.

Note the difference in stretching between Franc and his instructor…

Yup. That’s Franc stitching his index finger.

While his instructor is doing, well, something absurd with his groin.

The Big Recital 

The night of the big recital, and with all of the Made in Chelsea crew out in their support, Francis was nowhere to be seen.

Ehh?

Of course, the wannabe ballet dancer had been rocked by a serious injury.

The bloody grand jeté.

How typical!

Let’s hope there is another ballet recital coming soon because we would love to see Francis Boulle in twirling action.

WATCH Made in Chelsea every Monday night, on E4, at 10 pm.
