Another day, anotherMade in Chelsea lady Miles Nazaire manages to rub up the wrong way.
Issy Francis-Baum, who joined the E4 show earlier this year, recently appeared on the It's Good to Talk podcast where she addressed the current state of her relationship with Miles and, oh dear. It's not good.
When host Harrison Gunn asked Issy how she feels about Miles at the moment, she said, "We are not friends. I am sure you will see in the new season why that is.”
Issy continued, "Miles has got his opinions about me, which I don’t think are necessary or reasonable because I know who I am.
"I don't hate the guy. He's a nice guy doing his thing, doing well. It's just a shame. I don’t need any more friends, he doesn’t need anymore friends, so I think that's where we are right now.”
She added, "The Chelsea world is very gossipy and people are very two-faced."
WOW. We love the honesty Issy, and now we're even more excited for the new Made in Chelsea episodes - especially if they are going to be anyway near as juicy as this podcast.
Harrison went on to ask Issy about Ella May Ding, who also recently had a brief romance with Miles, but she admitted their paths never crossed, "I have never met Ella. Never spoke to her."
There were also questions about how true the 'reality' element of Made in Chelsea truly is and Issy did confess that her first scenes with Miles were "awkward", but still genuine as "they captured the first time we ever saw each other.”
Issy has starred in two series of the reality show and told Harrison that the next season, which the cast just finished filming in Bali, will be coming out on Christmas Eve. Best present EVER.
Following her introduction to Made in Chelsea in Mallorca, Issy is clearly determined to make her presence known amongst her fellow SW3 socialites this season. But she's not the only one making an impression on viewers as her dad Marc has also been causing a stir among fans.
Prior to being rather brutally pied off by the lothario, Issy invited Miles round for a saucy pool date in her frankly obscene family home. Post swim, viewers watched on as some suave zaddy adonis suddenly gatecrashed the date – and if you thought he was some sort of secret boyf prior to his introduction, don't worry, we did, too, for a hot sec. Emphasis on hot.
It turns out the hunk was none other than Issy's dad, Marc Francis-Baum, a smooth-talking businessman/entreprenuer/FITLORD who apparently has no issues being on camera, and thank God, tbh. This man is the definition of a winter warmer, and his presence is most welcome on a season full of clean-shaven Gen Zs.
Interestingly, the dad and daughter duo joked about how Miles reminded Issy of her dad in front of him, which equally creeped us out and turned us on at the same time.
After a little digging, we've learned that Issy's dad does, in fact, have Instagram (you're welcome), but the profile is set to private (we can't, but you should), but luckily for us thirsty lot, he regularly appears on his daughter Issy's very public socials.
ALSO, Marc does have a public Instagram account which he uses to showcase his Hackney mega-mansion, the very same fortress of affluence that was featured on the show. Luckily for us, he's not camera shy on this account.
It's the undone buttons for us.
Issy, who is a pretty big deal on TikTok, made her MiC debut earlier this year during the Mallorca series as one of four new faces alongside India Hovenden, Willow Day and Malek Amro.
She was already posting about being on the show on Instagram prior to filming in Mallorca and even teased that she has sparked a connection with a co-star – who we now know to be Miles – after her long-term relationship ended when her boyfriend cheated on her.
