Made in Chelsea season 16 episode 1 was jam-packed with new storylines.
The summer spin-off series in Croatia left a gaping hole of questions, with confusion over the relationships of Olivia Bentley and Digby and Sam Thompson and Habbs (Sophie Habboo).
Fortunately, episode 1 cleared that all up. Here’s the rundown…
Aw my heart is breaking for him 💔 poor Digby 😢 #MadeinChelsea

Liv and Digby Chronicles
Episode 1 opened with Alex Mytton and Ollie Locke rolling up to what looked like a private manor, a museum entrance or perhaps the Queen’s headquarters.
It was, in fact, Olivia Bentley’s parents’ house.
They poured tea and ate extravagant cakes while gossiping about Liv’s break-up with Digby.
Eventually, Ollie came to the conclusion that the only way to get over her ex was to do a naked photoshoot – standard.
Sam Thompson and Habbs
The whole ‘what is going on with Sam Thompson and Habbs’ was cleared up as Sam explained to Jamie Laing that he had kissed another girl and that he and Habbs were over.
After all that Made in Chelsea: Croatia drama, where Sam literally grovelled to win back Habbs after sleeping with another girl in Vegas, Sammy boy had messed it up again.
Like, big time…
Fortunately, Sam put on his puppy dog eyes and told Habbs that “it is something he will learn from”.
Like we haven’t heard that one before…
Every single series sam cheats- its getting boring now…. grow up #MadeInChelsea

The Return of Emily Blackwell (Harry Baron’s Ex)
Perhaps the biggest talking point of Made in Chelsea season 16 episode 1 was the return of Emily Blackwell – she was in seasons 12 and 13 between 2016 and 2017.
Emily had just moved into a house with Habbs and MIC newbie Miles Nazaire, where she made a list of SW3 stars that were not invited for sleepovers.
Basically, she just meant Harry Baron and girlfriend Melissa Tattam.
Emily then directly let Melissa know her thoughts during the end of episode party.
We have a new catty rivalry, woo!

Olivia Bentley Naked + The Backlash
Olivia followed up with Ollie’s proposal of naked photos and put everything on display for the camera.
Ever wondered what Liv looks like naked?
Enter the revenge body…
Ollie then proposed an exhibition of the photos, putting them on display at one of those classic made-up Made in Chelsea parties.
In this case, it was called a ‘Me Party’ and was all about celebrating Olivia’s beauty.
The Big Showdown
Obviously, Digby was going to turn up at this party and the whole thing was going to be horrendous.
We even got a picture of just how heartbroken Digby had been since the split as he spoke to Miles.

Surprisingly, attending a party where you ex-girlfriend is displaying huge nude portraits of herself isn’t that fun.
Who’d of thought it, eh?
The pair endured a tediously awkward same-same chat which covered all the topics that have been dragging their relationship through turmoil over the past year.
It ended with Digby announcing that he was “still in love” with Liv, although she had nothing to respond with.
Sam Thompson’s eyesight has deteriorated.
Miles Nazaire wears sh*t shirts but still looks incredible.
Olivia Bentley calls her mum “mama”.
