Made In Chelsea new girl Mimi Bouchard has admitted she had never heard of the show before last year.

The Canadian - real name Kimme - said this week: "When I moved to London a year ago, I hadn't even heard of it. It was only last summer when I started watching. I've watched the past two series so far."

Having joined the show for this year's 13th series, Mimi told star magazine: "I'm loving it. I'm very comfortable in front of the camera so I didn't feel awkward at all."

And on why she joined, Mimi revealed: "Mainly to get exposure for my online magazine and blog. And I've heard such great things about working for the show, so I thought I'd give it a shot! I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would."

Although she's only just popped up on screens, Mimi has already been causing drama.

This week, Olivia and Fredrik were the picture of love's young dream, until Mimi rocked them with news of a secret flirtation.

Liv confronted Mimi over the rumours: "Question. Do you fancy my boyfriend?" and complained about her flirting with Fredrik.

Mimi responded: "Why are you worrying what I do when your boyfriend is hitting on other girls?"

Later, Mimi spilled on Fredrik's apparent advances towards her, prompting Liv to snap at him: "You have a girlfriend you moron!"

Fredrik explained: "We met once and we got on, what's wrong with that, why are you being so crazy?"

Mimi added to Liv "Why are you so insecure in your relationship?"

An unimpressed Liv responded: "If you think she's hot and you want to bang her, be my guest, but you'll be single."

Made In Chelsea continues Monday nights on E4 at 9PM.
