Mark-Francis Vandelli has confessed his parents don't agree with his decision to appear on 'Made In Chelsea' and are unimpressed he's ruined their privacy

Mark-Francis Vandelli's parents have "disowned" him for appearing on 'Made In Chelsea'.

The 25-year-old reality star admits his fiercely private mother and father, socialite Diana and Italian ex-industrialist Marzio don't agree with his decision to air his life on screen.

He told HELLO! magazine: "They don't watch television because they're always abroad and it's very foreign to them.

"They have spent their lives trying to avoid publicity so I've destroyed a life's work in that sense.

"Look, I'm an only child so my parents invariably have high expectations for me."

Despite being a fan favourite on the show, Mark insists he isn't famous because he hasn't achieved anything of note.

He said: "Fame? I don't know fame. I have no idea what fame feels like. I'd call it being recognised.

"To be famous, you have to really achieve something - and I hope to in my life - but it really is being recognised.

"I'm always very flattered and maybe that's why I've continued doing the show - the response over time has been so surprisingly positive."
