Made In Chelsea's Francis Boulle thinks it would be ''ridiculous'' to claim he isn't posh, but he is fed up of British people ''toff-bashing''
Francis Boulle thinks it would be "ridiculous" to claim he's not posh.
The diamond dealer - who stars alongside Ollie Locke, Millie Mackintosh and Alexandra 'Binky' Felstead in E4 reality TV series 'Made In Chelsea' - admitted he is fed up of British people "toff-bashing", as the upper classes built the foundations of the country.
He said: "The toff-bashing and inverted snobbery in this country! The upper classes are the people who built this country from the ground up, let's make fun of them! Because that's what the public want.
"Am I posh? Yes. It would be ridiculous for me to claim that I'm not."
Francis - who has been attempting to win the affections of co-star Caggie Dunlop throughout the first series - thinks viewers "aspire" to be as rich and successful as the cast of 'Made In Chelsea'.
He added to Grazia magazine: "People do aspire to be like 'Chelsea'. They do."
However, Francis' co-star Gabriella Ellis recently admitted she "absolutely loves" James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright from rival reality show 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
She said: "I absolutely love Arg and Lydia from 'TOWIE' - they are my favourites by far. I find Arg absolutely comical, I just think he's absolutely brilliant and the banter he has with Mark is just great."
