'Made in Chelsea' will be set in Mauritius for the next series as an insider has revealed the cast will jet out to a luxury five-star resort after their Costa Rica trip was cancelled last year
The new series of 'Made in Chelsea' is to be filmed in Mauritius.
Stars of the E4 show will head to a luxury five star resort, which is going to cost the channel a "fortune" on the Indian Ocean island known for its pure beaches, lagoons and reefs.
Details of when the series will air and which cast members will be featured in the next installment of the reality show are being kept under wraps at this time.
An insider for the show told The Sun Online: "The resorts they are going to are absolutely stunning - and incredibly exclusively.
"It's going to cost a fortune, but the results will be the most luxurious scenes we've ever shot. Everyone is incredibly excited about it."
Last month, five new cast mates were confirmed, including Sam Prince - who previously dated Alex Mytton's model girlfriend Lottie Moss - as well as James Sandford, Ella Willis, Mimi Bouchard and Daisy Robins.
Last year, the posh cast - including Binky Felstead, Francis Boulle, Jamie Laing and Jess Woodley - jetted out to the South of France for spin-off show 'Made in Chelsea: South of France', in 2015 they filmed in Los Angeles and in 2014 they went to New York.
Late last year they were forced to scrap filming in Costa Rica after the plane with members of the show's crew crashed.
Two senior producers and two technical directors had to be rescued by the local coastguard and rushed to the nearby hospital after the small jet transporting them to the Central American country ahead of the show's one-off special plummeted into the water just off Puntarenas.
A spokesperson for NBC Universal International Studios, which owns 'Made in Chelsea's production company, said at the time: "Four of our Production Team on 'Made in Chelsea', produced by Monkey Kingdom, were involved in a plane crash earlier today in a resort in Costa Rica. We can confirm that all four people and the pilot are safe and unhurt. No cast were on board."
The rest of the crew and some of the cast were also en route to the filming location on a separate plane but were forced to fly back to the UK after bosses decided to suspend the special.
