The 10-11pm slot averaged 866,000 viewers, which was a 5.1% share of the TV audience. Also, the one-hour episode won the highest share of 16-34-year-olds for its time slot.

Highlights of last night's show:

Binky Felstead and Alex Mytton face cheating rumours:

Binky and Alex's relationship looked like it was about to hit the rocks last night as rumours began swirling that Alex had been unfaithful. But Alex protested his innocence and it appeared that Binky was staying by his side.

Andy Jordan and Jamie Laing clash:

Andy confronted Jamie over the way he has treated Lucy Watson, with Andy saying that Jamie was "f***ing with Lucy's head". Jamie didn't take kindly to the accusation and the pair exchanged words in a bar.

Spencer Matthews dishes out plenty of relationship advice:

Lothario Spencer decided to share his relationship wisdom with anyone who would listen in last night's episode. While sitting with ex-girlfriend Louise Thompson, Spencer told Binky and Alex: "Rumours ruined us, don't let that happen to you."

Jamie Laing realises he's said "I love you" more than 300 times:

After more words of wisdom from Spencer, Jamie confessed that he has probably told girls "I love you" more than 300 times and not really meant it. Although Jamie still appeared adamant that he loved Lucy.

Victoria Baker-Harber apologises to Cheska Hull:

We all remember the vile insults that flew around in the last Christmas special when Victoria called Cheska a "f***ing fat turkey" during a group dinner. But last night at Sophie Hermann's ball, Victoria thought it would be the perfect opportunity to apologise to Cheska over her cruel words. Although Cheska found it hard to forgive and forget.

Mark-Francis Vandelli gives Binky Felstead some great advice:

With Binky torn over the rumours circulating about boyfriend Alex Mytton cheating on her, Mark was on hand (as always) to dish out some words of wisdom. Using the famous words of American politician Eleanor Roosevelt, Mark told Binky: "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."

Made In Chelsea continues next Monday (14 April) at 10pm on E4.
