Binky Felstead is concerned about the "curse" of 'Made in Chelsea' which has doomed many of its stars' relationships
Binky Felstead is concerned about the "curse" of 'Made in Chelsea'.
The reality TV star - whose real first name is Alexandra - is enjoying her first romance on the show, with Alex Mytton, and admits she is worried the programme could ruin her relationship as none of her castmates have found lasting love.
She said: "I've never been in a proper relationship on the show, but I'm nervous and every day I'm waiting for something bad to happen.
"I am scared because it's a big curse so it's always on my mind. It's very difficult to be in a relationship on camera, because everything is so blown up and you're put into situations with people you don't want to be with.
"Working together also puts pressure on a relationship and can make things difficult - but so far, so good, I hope it's going to be OK."
Binky admits being on the show can be difficult as she never feels at ease around her castmates in case they are "nasty" to her.
She said: "I'll never be at peace because I never know who's going to be nasty but I feel confident in myself. I like the fact I haven't changed since starting the show and I feel like I can deal with whatever is thrown at me. I won't put up with any bitchiness."
While her personality is the same, Binky has changed her style since the show began and is more concerned about what she wears these days.
She told OK! magazine: I didn't care about fashion before and lived in tracksuit bottoms and baggy jumpers. I didn't know how to dress so I've been learning from Millie [Manderson] and Rosie [Fortescue]. It's very competitive on the show and I feel a complete tramp if I don't put the effort in."
