Who is Mark-Francis?

Mark-Francis is a TV personality that has found fame by being the longest-serving male cast-member of Made In Chelsea.

The 26-year-old reality star, from London, has certainly been used to the high-life for a while.

He is the heir to the fortune of his Russian socialite mum, Diane Boulding-Casserly Vandelli and his dad is Italian businessman Marzio Vandelli.

Despite this, Mark has taken on some business ventures of his own, as he’s set up his own jewellery business in Paris.

He was also appointed as the editor of Insider magazine, where he no doubt puts his knowledge of the fashion world to good use.

How long has Mark-Francis been in Made In Chelsea?

Even though the star has been VERY vocal about his distaste for the show, the Chelsea chap has featured in MIC from the very beginning.

Viewers have developed a love for Mark-Francis’ witty but cutting remarks and remarkably-defined cheekbones.

During his time on the programme, he’s notoriously found it difficult to click with his fellow cast members.

He recently branded his co-stars as “basic", before adding that it would be “social suicide” if he behaved like they did.

Despite this, there’s no doubt his E4 role has opened up some avenues for him, as he was once spotted enjoying a wild night out with supermodel Kate Moss.

What other TV shows has Mark-Francis been involved in?

Even though Mark-Francis has spent the past six years working on MIC, he’s still found some time to squeeze in some extra telly appearances.

He has worked as a panellist on Virtually Famous, as well as providing some commentary on The Big Fat Quiz of the Year.

The MIC star’s most noteworthy TV venture was on Channel 4’s The Jump.

Just like many other celebs that ran scared from the ski jump show, Mark-Francis’ time in the competition was short-lived.

The telly personality exited in week 3 after sustaining an injury on the slopes.

When is Made in Chelsea series 14 on E4 and are there any new arrivals?

Made in Chelsea started its fourteenth series on Monday, October 9 on E4, and there will be 12 episodes in the season.

It follows the spin-off Made in Chelsea Ibiza, which saw the sensational split of Tiffany Watson and Sam Thompson, as well as Frankie Gaff and Jamie Laing.

The cast you can expect to see in the latest series is:

  • Tiffany Watson
  • Sam Thompson
  • Louise Thompson
  • Frankie Gaff
  • Jamie Laing
  • Alex Mytton
  • Oliver Proudlock
  • Francis Boulle
  • Fredrik Ferrier
  • Mark-Francis Vandelli
  • Georgia Toffolo
  • Olivia Bentley
  • Julius Cowdrey
  • Mimi Bouchard
  • Ella Willis
  • Harry Baron

A new addition to the cast comes in the form of Charlie Mills.

The hunky blonde is a former model and playboy socialite and is set to bag a host of admirers as he arrives on set.

He's heir to a banking fortune too, which may well help draw in the ladies.
