Made In Chelsea stars 'too funny' for TV?
'Made In Chelsea' bosses kept axing hilarious scenes from the first series of the E4 reality show, according to eccentric star Ollie Locke
'Made In Chelsea' bosses kept axing hilarious scenes from the first series of the E4 reality show.
With the programme documenting the lives of a group of wealthy and privileged twenty-somethings living in south-west London, flamboyant show star Ollie Locke thinks producers deemed him and friends Francesca 'Cheska' Hull and Alexandra 'Binky' Felstead "too funny for TV".
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It was really quite odd because they kept cutting out all the really funny parts. There was one scene where the three of us went into this fancy dress shop and just had an absolutely hilarious time. But it was nowhere to be seen in the show. Maybe we were too funny for TV?
"When we were filming, we all loved the comedic parts of 'Made In Chelsea'. But maybe they wanted it to look like we take ourselves more seriously than we actually do. You have to remember it's eight hours of filming packed into one hour. You only see what they want you to see."
Ollie - who split from 'Made In Chelsea' co-star Gabriella Ellis during series one after coming out as bisexual - is still hopeful new girlfriend Chloe Green, the daughter of Topshop boss Sir Philip Green, will appear in the second series of the show when filming begins later this week.
Speaking at the Skyy Vodka Glamour Live event at London's Supper Club venue on Monday night (25.07.11), Ollie said: "We're not sure whether Chloe will feature in the show. I hope she does but we've only been dating two months so we'll see. Gabriella and I still talk and she's a great girl so there's no awkwardness there."
Chloe added: "My dad is really supportive and if I do end up being in 'Made In Chelsea' he'll be behind me the whole way."
