Jamie Laing has slammed Spencer Matthews and Lucy Watson's newfound relationship saying they "won't last", while 'Made in Chelsea' co-star Francis Boulle insists he is happy for the couple.
Jamie Laing says Spencer Matthews and Lucy Watson's relationship "won't last".
The 'Made in Chelsea' hunk is expecting his co-stars' new romance to end in tatters, while Francis Boulle - who has fallen out with womaniser Spencer on several occasions on the E4 reality show - insists he is happy for the couple.
Speaking at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards at London's Royal Festival Hall last night (12.05.13), Jamie - who has previously denied Lucy's claims he shared a kiss with her in a hot tub while dating current girlfriend Tara Keeney - told BANG Showbiz: "I'm civil with Lucy. I think her and Spencer could potentially make a good couple but I don't think they will last. Should I have said that?"
Francis added: "I can't believe you said that. You know, I think everyone deserves a chance to be happy. I don't care what anyone says about them - I like them. I wish them all the best."
But Jamie seemed unsure about whether or not he was still dating brunette beauty Tara and stumbled about whether or not she has forgiven him following the hot tub rumours.
He said: "Things are going fine with Tara. I did mess up so hopefully she will take me back. I mean, she has taken me back."
Francis added: "I think you should shut up!
"I love Tara and think she's great. I actually introduced them because I was seeing her older sister. She's a great girl, I really like her. But she's at Cambridge."
Jamie said: "We thought we were both going to get married and be brother-in-laws but it didn't work out."
Jamie and Francis were joined on the red carpet by a host of 'Made in Chelsea' stars including Louise Thompson - who Jamie previously dated - and Andy Jordan, who appeared to confirm their new romance following the brunette star's split from Spencer Matthews by arriving together.
Spencer also took to the red carpet with Lucy and confirmed they are now dating.
Despite the drama, there was a huge cause for celebration among the cast as 'Made in Chelsea' went on to win the Reality and Constructed Factual BAFTA, beating off competition from 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', 'Young Apprentice' and 'The Audience'.
