Millie Mackintosh slapping a cheating Spencer Matthews

Millie's fiery personality came up with the goods in series four. After discovering slimy Spencer was cheating on current girlfriend, Louise Thompson, Millie and Rosie (pre-'friendship' speech, obvs) confronted Spence and gave him a big old slap. Followed by a dramatic storm off, this has got to be one of the most memorable moments in the show's history.

Lucy Watson's 'grill'

How can we forget out favourite sassy SW3 resident Lucy Watson? Her entrance in series four was not a quiet one. What better way to bond than over a Champagne-filled dinner party? Maybe not. After attracting negative attention from the other Made in Chelsea ladies for going on simultaneous dates with Jamie Laing and Andy Jordan, the infamous dinner party culminated in Lucy asking why everyone was 'getting up in her grill'.

Francis Boulle's 'knob' mask

Rosie isn't one to shy away from the action, but her in-the-moment insults could use some work. After a heated discussion at a masquerade ball in series one, Rosie's memorable comeback for Francis's comments was: "Francis, your mask looks like you've got a knob on your face." Although it's not the wittiest insult she could've thought up, she's not wrong.

JP's 'fcking good guy' speech

Made in Chelsea viewers were quite concerned about Josh Patterson's forehead veins after his memorable argument with Ollie Locke in series 12. In an angry outburst at Ollie's concern for Binky, JP erupts with his famous line: "I'm a fcking good guy. My parents raised me well. I'm a gentleman." A gentlemen who's very concerned about his girlfriend feeding other men marshmallows, apparently.

Mark Francis not knowing what Nando's is

Bless him. After hearing that Nando's is not, in fact, a wine bar, but a chain restaurant that sells chicken, Mark gives us his best disappointed-cum-regal look. After hearing that Nando's can actually be a date venue (the horror) he said: "He took her for chicken? What a lovely first date."

Victoria Baker-Harber calls Cheska Hull a 'fat fcking turkey'

You can't blame her for not sticking with the festive theme. Would it really be a Made in Chelsea Christmas without a massive Champagne-fuelled argument over the dinner table? Series six was particularly spectacular, with arguments between Victoria, Cheska Hull and Lucy Watson culminating in Victoria calling Cheska a 'fat fcking turkey'. Not cool.

Gabriella Ellis's weird Ollie Locke lookalike video

You've just broken up with your boyfriend and you're heartbroken, what's the first thing you do? Make a music video and hire six actors who look extremely like your ex. No? Well, that's exactly what Gabriella Ellis did after her emotional breakup with Ollie Locke and the results were pretty weird.

Millie Mackintosh8 of 10

Millie Mackintosh's 'friendship' speech

Millie has had plenty of fiery encounters on the show, one of our favourites is her infamous speech in the finale of the second series. At the uber-glam twenties themed party, Millie said: "to my best friend, Rosie Fortesque, for hooking up with Hugo Taylor while we were still together, and lying about it. Here's to friendship."Then, storming past her former-friend Rosie, Millie says: "You're disgusting". Ouch.

Alex Mytton's 'orgy'

Ah, the classic breakup reason - cheating on your girlfriend by having an orgy. In the previous episode, Binky asked Alex to promise he had 'only cheated on [her] four times', and to her dismay, she finds out this time he not only cheated on her again, but this time in an orgy. What followed was an extremely hard slap and many tears. Poor Binks.

James Taylor taking Eliza Batten to Paris

These Made in Chelsea boys never learn, do they? In classic Chelsea style, James Taylor decided to take Eliza Batten to Paris on a date on a Monday (casual), while also dating Kings College London student, Verity Bowditch. The pair confronted him at a party, where it also transpired that he had tried to woo them both by inviting them to see his plane. Bit awkward.

The Made In Chelsea star said he was reminded of Vogue’s first marriage every day as the wedding certificate is kept in their safe, and she replied, “Sometimes I forget it ever happened. Let’s bin that.

“It makes me feel a little bit sick in my mouth. I can’t say I’ve ever been massively sad about a break-up, either. I was more embarrassed.”

Kerry Katona hits back following rant about 'fat' Brian McFadden and 'toxic' Atomic Kitten

Brian, 40 – who shares daughters Molly, 18, and Lilly-Sue, 17, with first wife Kerry Katona – has also swiped at Vogue in the past as he branded their marriage “just a party”.

And Spencer’s exes – who include his former MIC co-stars Louise Thompson and Lucy Watson – also felt the wrath of the pair after the 32 year old admitted he “didn’t care about any of them”. While his wife poked fun at his past – and without mentioning names – she said, “You went on with someone who you took ages to dump who was bats--t.”
