Well, well, well...

Alex Mytton Binky Felstead cheat

by Asher Brandon |

Fans of Made In Chelsea will always remember Alex Mytton. He was one of the biggest personalities on the series and was a mainstay of the show, from when he joined in 2013 to his recent departure. During his time, he a key player in some of the biggest DRAMAs, from his tumultuous relationship with Binky Felstead to his various flings with other co-stars.

Now the reality star has opened up and exposed a huge secret about his time on the show.

During a lie detector test on the Private Parts podcast, that he hosts alongside Jamie Laing, Alex was asked, "Did you cheat on Binky Felstead more times than you let on?"

While Alex answered, "No", it turns out he was lying and the lie detector test revealed that he actually had cheated more times than he admitted on the show.

Following the results he said, "F--k. Dammit."

While Alex and Jamie went on to laugh, he then added, "We shouldn't laugh about this, it was a traumatic time."

That's a bit of an understatement, poor Binky got cheated on throughout series seven. However after it came to light that Alex had an orgy, Binky slapped him round the face.

Fast forward several years and it turns out Binky is well and truly over the drama and in 2020, Alex admitted that they're "totally sweet now, really good friends".

Spencer Matthews and Caggie Dunlop

The OG tragic split, even featuring an IRL (well, scripted reality) leaving at the airport scene. Spencer and Caggie weren't officially a couple, with Spencer dating model Funda Önal, but the chemistry between them was undeniable and for a long time Spenny thought of her as the love of his life. Eventually, feeling played by Spencer stringing her along while refusing to dump Funda (we don't blame her, tbh) Caggie left to pursue a "music career" in New York, and Spencer, realising the error of his ways, rushed to catch her at the airport to win her back. He missed her. Talk about dramatic.

"You really were the kindest, most caring, beautiful all-round woman and undoubtedly the biggest force for good in my life. I owe you infinitely for shaping me to be the man I am today.

He added, "Now as I look ahead in a life without you I want you to know that that subconscious presence lives on and really I just want to say thank you so much for being an amazing mother to me, for showing me total compassion and love, and although there is still a lot I wanted you to get to see I will never forget the memories we made, I will always love you and yes I will probably always 'need you'.
