Made In Chelsea's Binky Felstead may have found her Mr. Right in co-star Alex Mytton after declaring that the couple are now "stronger than ever".

As series six of the BAFTA award-winning reality show drew to a close in December, trouble appeared to be brewing for the smitten couple following on-going drama with Alex's ex-girlfriend Phoebe-Lettice Thompson.

But now, following a romantic holiday to Goa - which was a Christmas present from Alex - Binky tells Reveal that nobody is going to split them up - not even love rival Phoebe.

"Alex and I are stronger than ever," Binky tells us. "Neither of us speak to Phoebe now. We're very happy. It's been a few months now and we're still together and hopefully it will continue."

Along with the rest of the gang, Binky and Alex are now filming for the brand new seventh series - and we can't to see what everyone has been up to.

"There's new faces, new drama and the usual tears and laughter in series seven so far," Binky teases. "Everyone's intrigued as to what's going to happen this series. No doubt it'll be better than the other one; but series six was pretty good!"

The couple have started filming for the new series.

Binky, who has previously admitted to being nervous about airing a romance on the show, said that her relationship with Alex hasn't suffered.

"I think we're strong and nothing is going to be able to break us up easily," she says. "We pretty much live together and it's just going really nicely. Alex isn't living with me properly but he only lives down the road so he always stays round at mine - very convenient!

"We're spending a lot of time with each other and we're similar people. It's quite nice. My mum Jane approves too, she really does like him a lot."

Still going strong after six months together, Binky and Alex will be celebrating their very first Valentine's Day this week, and Binky's left a not so subtle hint for Alex to woo her...

The couple enjoyed a romantic holiday in Goa last month.

"Neither of us think much about Valentine's Day," Binky reveals. "It's quite cringe and it's one of those days that are pushed upon you, but needless to say, if Alex hasn't organised anything he'll probably be in the doghouse!"

That's a warning, Alex!

Binky, who is launching new dating app Flirt Planet with co-star Francis Boulle, also filled us in on best mate and former MIC star Ollie Locke, who came third place in this year's Celebrity Big Brother.

Ollie made his feelings well-known for fellow housemate and TOWIE star Sam Faiers while they were in the house, and now that they're out, it remains to be seen whether romance will blossom for the pair.

Ollie and Sam became close in Celebrity Big Brother.

"I haven't really seen much of Ollie with Sam outside of the house," says Binky. "I guess it was just one of those things where you're in the house for a long time and you start fancying each other because there's nobody else there."

Although Binky says that Ollie "doesn't have a type", she adds: "Sam's a very good looking girl and she's really nice, so you never know. I wouldn't blame him!"
