Meet the cast

The returning cast, featuring Sam, Yas, James, Maeva, Harvey, Paris, Tristan, Miles, Temps, Ruby, Lauren, Emily, and Rez, are set to bring more of their unique blend of charm, drama, and style to the streets of Chelsea.

Jack Taylor, a 22-year-old from Battersea, London, is the kind-hearted and fun younger brother of James Taylor. Despite being single, Jack isn’t actively looking for a relationship, holding out for the perfect match.

Sam Vanderpump, aged 26 from Fulham, brings reality TV royalty blood with his aunt, Lisa Vanderpump, being a queen of the genre. Sam is well integrated into the Chelsea scene, often spotted with Reza, Tristan, and Harvey during their nights out.

Muffin (Julia Pollard), the 21-year-old Battersea resident, is as loyal and friendly as they come. Known among her friends as ‘Muffin’ for her super sweet energy, she’s been single for the last year and is proud of her half Norwegian heritage.

Tina Stinnes, a 28-year-old from White City, London, is making her return to the show. Known for her spontaneous and loyal nature, Tina is a familiar face in the Chelsea scene and co-runs a sustainable swimwear company, ‘Litora Studio’.

Zeyno Taylan, 24, is the new addition to the cast who met Harvey at a party last year. Currently dating Harvey, Zeyno is getting acquainted with his friends, including Tristan and Rez.

A first episode full of drama

In the opening episode, following Maeva and James’ splendid wedding, the return to everyday life has left Maeva overwhelmed and disinterested in intimacy with James. James, on the other hand, is frustrated by his lack of physical connection with Maeva, despite her being highly desirable.

The pair consider hiring a nanny to alleviate some of Maeva’s stress, while James also contemplates seeking a sex therapist to rekindle their passion, a plan Maeva finds embarrassing due to James’ openness about their private issues.

In another part of town, Tristan and Lauren’s relationship has become strained after a brief revival in Sydney. Tristan is eager for a deeper commitment, which Lauren seems to hesitate about. Their attempts at resolution are complicated by Sam Prince, who influences Tristan and confronts Lauren at her birthday celebration, leading to a tense exchange.

Meanwhile, Emily feels a growing distance from Ruby, suspecting Ruby’s avoidance is due to a potential reconciliation with Reza, which Emily disapproves of. Deciding to confront the situation, Emily plans to address her concerns with Ruby directly.
