According to Francis Boulle, The Hills star Stephanie Pratt may not be the only familiar new face we will see in the new series of Made In Chelsea, his new BFF Holly Willoughby may be joining the show too!
The bubbly blonde presenter had never hidden the fact that she is a HUGE Made In Chelsea fan, with the main object of her affection being ginger diamond dealer Francis Boulle.
So, when Boulle’s Made In Chelsea stars Jamie Laing, Lucy Watson and Binky Felstead made an appearance on a This Morning episode earlier this year, show producers had arranged a little surprise for Holly.
Bringing out a giant present for her to open, Holly got the surprise of her life when, after tearing away at the box, Francis popped out causing the presenter so much surprise she tripped over her own words to tell him:
“I have this weird obsession with you! Can we have lunch after the show?”
After the show, and much to Holly’s delight, the pair went for a drink together, with Holly taking to social networking site, Twitter, instantly to post a picture of them together drinking shots along with the caption:
“Believe! Its happened..me and @francisboulle… #happy.”
And since then the pair seem to have formed a strong friendship, so much so that Francis says she wants in on the MIC action, and producers are keen to grant her wishes and cast her in the new series!
Discussing the situation with Star magazine, Boulle revealed:
“We spoke about [Made in Chelsea] – she was interested and the producers are, so we’ll see.
“She’d be there as my mate. We’d hang out; shoot the breeze.”
This would certainly mean that Francis, who we absolutely adore by the way, appears in more scenes in the next series, and that he has finally replaced Fred once and for all!
