Richard Dinan's girlfriend, professional model Ianthe Cochrane-Stack, will star in a fourth series of 'Made in Chelsea'
Richard Dinan's girlfriend has joined 'Made in Chelsea'.
Ianthe Cochrane-Stack has signed up for the fourth series of the E4 reality TV show - which will return to screens later this year - after dating the 25-year-old entrepreneur for a few months.
The 21-year-old professional model has already become friends with fellow cast members Francesca Hull and Ollie Locke after Richard - who recently split from 'Made in Chelsea' beauty Kimberley Garner - introduced her to the pair.
A friend said: "Ianthe is a student and doesn't have a job apart from modelling so she has the whole summer free to film.
"She is worried about how she will be portrayed and whether she will get drawn into the bitchiness that's a part of the show, but decided it was too good an opportunity to turn down.
"Anyway, she was concerned if she didn't appear on the show, producers might try to set up Richard with another girl!
"Ianthe is absolutely gorgeous and a lovely girl, so will be a great addition to the cast."
The blonde beauty looks set to avoid any awkward scenes with Richard's ex Kimberley as producers have told Ianthe that the 22-year-old star will not be returning for another series.
The friend added to the Daily Star newspaper: "She's been told Kimberley won't be returning for the next series so is very glad she can avoid any awkwardness around her and Richard."
