Whether it’s Ex on the Beach’s Megan McKenna and Love Island star Olivia Attwood on TOWIE or former The X Factor contestant Amelia Lily on Geordie Shore, we love a good old reality TV crossover so we were ruddy well over the moon when it was revealed that a familiar face will be joining Made in Chelsea when it returns on Monday 28 September.
Ahead of the new series of the SW3-based show, it was announced that Love Island 2018 contestant Charlie Frederick will be joining the cast as the best friend of Sam Holmes, alongside other newbies including Reza Amiri-Garroussi’s girlfriend Ruby Adler and model Paris Smith.
As he makes his big return to reality TV, here’s everything you need to know about Charlie Frederick including his relationship history with Arabella Chi and Lucie Donlan.
Who is Charlie Frederick?
Charlie's a model who appeared on the 2018 series of Love Island, alongside the likes of Jack Fincham, Dani Dyer, Wes Nelson, Laura Anderson, and Dr. Alex George.

How old is Charlie Frederick?
Where's Charlie Frederick from?
Charlie is from Plymouth and very much not from Chelsea. Despite being on Made in Chelsea. Okaaaaay, then.
What's Charlie Frederick's relationship history?
Before he entered the famous Love Island villa in 2018, Charlie told bosses, "I had one serious ex from a relationship that lasted about three years. It has been and gone and wasn’t right at the time. She would say I was a lovely guy but it just didn’t work out. I think the same about her but it just didn’t work out at the time. She will probably be quite shocked when she sees me walk into the villa."
During his time in the villa, Charlie coupled up with Scouse girl Hayley Hughes, but things didn't last long as they were both dumped on Day 13. Things turned sour between the pair and during a post-show interview on This Morning, Charlie and Hayley REFUSED to sit on the same sofa. Awks...
Charlie's famous exes include 2019 Islanders Lucie Donlan and Arabella Chi.
What's going on with Charlie Frederick and Verity Bowditch?
In the most recent series of Made In Chelsea the ex-Love Islander can be seen chirpsing Verity, even indulging in a sneaky snog.
In the trailer for the next episode of the show we can see that they're even going on a DATE. Are things getting serious?
Who is Charlie Frederick's ex-girlfriend?
If you rewind your minds back to May, when the 2019 Love Island cast was revealed, Charlie pipped up to slam his ex-girlfriend Lucie Donlan.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said, "[Lucie is] most definitely not looking for love! She's only 21. I hope she's going in there with the right intentions. She'll get a couple of Instagram followers on the way, if you know what I mean. You’ve got to do what you've got to do to get the Z-list fame."
As if that wasn't bad enough for Charlie, in June, Love Island bosses chucked another one of his exes in, this time in the form of supermodel Arabella Chi...
What did Charlie Frederick say about Arabella Chi?
After ITV confirmed Arabella Chi would be entering the villa as a bombshell, Charlie was quick to speak out on his social media accounts, claiming he thought he was actually DATING the stunning blonde.
Taking to his Instagram Story, Charlie wrote, "Wow Love Island you wanna have my f---ing life any more?!!! Both my exes in the villa f---ing madness."
He then added, "Right so this is all an absolute madness for me, finding out that a person I'm seeing/have a lot of feelings for, on a serious level has just strolled into the villa completely disregarding my feelings and our relationship or what we had, I feel like I have to air these screen shots because I feel like I've been completely mugged off.
"I'm truly upset that Arabella has lied to me about what she was doing and claiming she had a campaign but instead actioning going into Love Island."
What have Lucie Donlan and Arabella Chi said about Charlie Frederick in the Love Island villa?
When Arabella made her entrance into the villa in June, Lucie was quick to tell the model she recognised her. She said, "I recognise you! You're my ex's ex. I've stalked you [on social media] before!"
When did Charlie Frederick join Made in Chelsea?
