'Made in Chelsea' is reportedly heading to Ibiza this summer for what will be their "roughest" series to date
'Made in Chelsea' is to be filmed in Ibiza this summer.
The posh cast of the E4 show will hit the Balearic party island for what insiders have teased will be a "rough and ready" series as the likes of Louise Thompson and Jamie Laing drink their nights away on the beach.
A source told The Sun Online: "'Made In Chelsea' is going to get rough and ready this summer. Expect lots of drunk reality stars and big nights out.
"Producers have decided to take things down and notch and let the cast properly enjoy themselves."
It follows the episode they shot in a five-star luxurious resort in Mauritius, which cost the channel a "fortune".
In the current series, the show saw new cast mates Daisy Robins, Ella Willis and James Sandford, who initially set his sights on Louise, 27, until her boyfriend Ryan Libbey scared him away, join.
It's also the first time the show has been shot in the same location as rival 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
Last year, reality stars including Binky Felstead, Francis Boulle, Jamie 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.
