The McVitie's heir and budding entrepreneur - who has featured as the cheeky chappy in E4's reality series since season two - revealed that being posh has made it difficult for people to get to know him in the past

Jamie Laing says being posh is "very difficult".

The 'Made In Chelsea' star - who is the heir to McVitie's biscuits and owns his own company named Candy Kittens - claims he joined the E4 show so people would be able to relate to him more easily.

He said: "Being posh is very difficult to relate to with accents and that, so doing 'Made in Chelsea' was a way for people to get to know who I was."

However, the 26-year-old star insists that although he is set to inherit his family's fortune in the future, he's still had his fare share of rubbish jobs.

He told the Evening Standard newspaper: "I worked for a catering company and we had to do a job for Ralph Lauren. My job was the absolute worst. I had to stand there holding a fishbowl with sushi on top for five hours. And people were so rude.

"That saying, 'Be nice to everyone on the way up', is so true."

The cheeky chappy also revealed he hopes to front his own TV show one day after finding fame on the reality series.

He added: "I love ['Made in Chelsea'] but its my dream to do presenting, it would be great to have my own chat show. I feel like I could do it."
