Filming has been halted on Made In Chelsea with the current series airing a shorter-than-planned run.

The new series launched as planned on Monday, March 23 but will conclude tonight (April 27) after just six episodes.


Having originally been due to run for twelve weeks, E4 has revealed a special replacement for Mondays to come.

Made In Chelsea Favourites will air on E4 at 9PM from next Monday (May 5). Each episode will see a number of cast members get together online to revisit a classic MiC episode and relive some of their biggest dating disasters and scandals from years gone by.

The first will feature Jamie Laing, Alex Mytton and Sam Thompson.

A synopsis teases: "As rumours of Alex's infidelity reach a distraught Binky, and with more lies yet to come, a dramatic confrontation is inevitable. Meanwhile, Sam thinks he's met the girl of his dreams in Christiana - until he introduces her to Spencer... How will Alex react today to reliving his love-rat past? Will Jamie defend his close friend Binky? And will anyone even recognise Sam?!"

You can watch Made In Chelsea episodes online free and catch up via streaming with All4 (UK viewers).

Meanwhile, Channel 4 has announced a number of other production updates to its series as a result of the current health crisis.

Filming has stopped on shows including Ackley Bridge, Back and Frank of Ireland, Travel Man and Hollyoaks.

Channel 4 said: "The need to follow Government and PHE advice has had an impact on a number of existing productions – in particular on the scripted slate and as a consequence filming has paused on in-production titles such as Ackley Bridge, Back and Frank of Ireland.

"We hope filming will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

"We also announced this week that filming on Hollyoaks has paused, however in order to make sure the show stays on air for as long as possible we have adapted the schedule and further reduced the number of episodes per week to two from Monday 6th April."


However shows including Gogglebox will continue to air as normal, with Channel 4 revealing: "We’ve been busy making sure we can film with rigged with cameras allowing the families to take part without any contact from crew."

The new series of Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back will launch in April as planned, however the final two episodes were not filmed with a studio audience.
