A tongue-in-cheek guide to getting the starring role of your dreams....

  • You must speak posh. If you don't speak posh, none of the other cast members will understand a word you are saying.

  • Do you have a double barrelled surname? You probably should invent one if you don't.

  • If you can't do the double barrelled surname thing, then how about a ridiculous nickname that bears no resemblance to your ACTUAL name?

  • Do you have a job? You probably won't have time to be on Made in Chelsea if you have a job.  You may want to quit. Hopefully you have an inheritance or something. You need time and money to spend all your time frequenting the wine bars and clubs in and around Chelsea.

  • Alternatively you could have your own business. It means you can PRETEND to work but still have time for all of your leisure activities. Once again, you probably need an inheritance. Suitable business ideas? Swimwear design company. T-shirt design company. Freelance make-up artist.

  • You should probably know how to ski. They go skiing a lot. You wouldn't want to embarrass yourself now, would you? You should also be comfortable with hanging out in hot tubs without many items of clothing on. Which is slightly easier than skiing.

  • Your hair should be perfect at all times. If not you'll probably be fired.

  • You should be okay with sleeping with all of your cast members if necessary. Or pretending you have. And then seeing your friends sleeping with your exes. And pretending they haven't.

  • You're going to probably need to spend a lot of time with people you hate. And be able to deal with confrontational situations.

  • Be prepared for backstabbing too. It happens. A LOT.

Any more???
