Ashley James won't be coupling up with any of the Made In Chelsea boys in the new series, as she is now loved up with rugby union player Ugo Monye.

Apparently, the blonde reality TV star and model has been dating Ugo - who plays for the Harlequins - for some time now, so we won't be seeing her on any more dates with her co-stars in the upcoming episodes.

A close friend of Ashley's told Reveal at Virgin Media's V Festival that the couple have been going strong "for ages" and that Ashley is not at all interested the Chelsea boys anymore.

"They met through a mutual friend," Ashley's pal told us. "Ugo told his friend that he thought Ashley was hot."

We have to admit that we could spot the chemistry between the twosome a mile off, as they enjoyed the festival and hung out together in the Virgin Media Louder Lounge with some drinks.

Ashley first appeared on our TV screens during a speed dating session attended by Francis Boulle. She and Francis then went on a couple of dates, before the diamond entrepreneur realised his true feelings for co-star Sophia Sassoon and broke things off.

The Chelsea newbie then began dating Ollie Locke and they remained together for a number of months until he admitted that he was struggling to come to terms with his sexuality and ended the relationship.

Finally, Ashley gave a date with co-star Josh Coombs a go. However, their rendezvous was interrupted by Ollie one evening and resulted in a pretty epic showdown, with Ashley letting rip at her ex for hurting her feelings - all in front of poor Josh.

Ashley dated co-star Ollie Locke for a few months before things turned sour

Coincidentally, Ashley told Reveal that the jumper she was wearing at V Festival was actually the same one that she had worn when she famously shouted at Ollie!

Well, it looks like the star has finally struck gold with Ugo and decided to ditch the Chelsea men for good. We wonder what antics she will get up to on the show now!
