THE latest series of Love Island wraps on Sunday with the reunion show – but the steamy drama in Majorca will continue with Made In Chelsea.
Fabriqué à Chelsea: Majorca will introduce us to four new characters — three stunning ladies and a hunk, who are both British and Spanish.
Un initié de la télévision a déclaré: “The really exciting news is that some of these characters are likely to feature in the subsequent series of the show when it returns to Blighty.
“But to maintain the intrigue, producers aren’t revealing exactly which of the Majorcan newcomers will be signing up.
“Instead, viewers will just need to follow their storylines to find out.
“Suffice to say, they all fit the essential criteria of being on Made In Chelsea in that they’re all rather stylish, sexy and, bien sûr, terribly posh.”
India Hovenden has lived in the royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea her entire life and is in Spain for a job.
She’s currently working as a personal assistant at Vogue, as well as being signed to London-based modelling agency MOT models.
Isabella Francis-Baum was also born and raised in London, and is a part-time student and model who lives her life in the fast lane — she’s very much single and ready to mingle.

Willow Day is an international jet-setter — and another fashion model — who was born in Britain but raised in Majorca.
Though she’s currently in Milan working as an intern for Versace. As one does, chéri.
The one man is Malek Amro, who has been living and partying in Mallorca for the last two years since he relocated his life to Majorca from the UK.
He works for his friend’s newly launched app Yacht Drop which provides a delivery service taking drinks to superyachts in some of the most exclusive ports around the island.
I reckon the new arrivals might even be too posh for Made In Chelsea.
