Made In Chelsea 2016's cast have glammed up for a new photoshoot ahead of the series.

And there have been a few changes, including the departure of Lucy Watson after four years on the show.

Who's on the Made In Chelsea cast?

Her spokesperson said: "After four amazing years on Made in Chelsea, Lucy feels that now is the right time to explore some other exciting opportunities and projects that she is passionate about."

They added: "Being part of such a successful show has been an incredible experience for her. And she wishes everyone involved all the very best for the future."

But coming back to the show are three familiar faces with Ollie Proudlock making a return alongside Francis Boulle, who appeared in the recent South of France spin-off, together with sidekick Fredrik Ferrier.

And alongside the comebacks will be a new face in the form of Akin Solanke-Caulker.

The Sun newspaper reports that Akin, who is a pal of Alex Mytton, will join MIC for the latest series later this year.

Akin will be Made In Chelsea's first black regular cast member and told the tabloid: “It’s definitely overdue, they need a black person on the show. My mum keeps saying I’m representing.

“I’m not just representing myself but I’m representing other people that look like me. Not just the racial side of things but also people who are from where I am from.”

Joining Akin will be two more newbies: Emily Blackwell and Julius Cowdrey.

The new series of Made In Chelsea begins on TV next week. Monday, October 10 at 9PM on E4.
