Mark-Francis Vandelli has revealed how he regrets signing up for 'Made in Chelsea'

Mark-Francis Vandelli regrets signing up for 'Made In Chelsea'.

The reality TV star - who is known for his extravagant ways and posh accent on the E4 series - has revealed he didn't expect there to be so much intrusion on his private life when he signed up for the show.

Quizzed on whether his mother's worries about the limelight have put him off being famous, he said: "When I was approached to film 'Made In Chelsea', I did not expect it to be quite what it's become in terms of following people's private lives.

"Had I known, I'd have been mortified and not even considered it. I really don't think people need to know about my private life. It's not that fascinating."

The 25-year-old art dealer - whose mother is Russian socialite Diane Boulting-Casserley Vandelli and whose father is the Italian former industrialist Marzio Vandelli - also explained his mother's feelings about fame.

He told heat magazine: "I'm very close to my mother, she was born into a vaguely public family and did everything she could to run away from that. She was afraid of the limelight, because she knows it can ruin everything - and she's right."
