Alex has been dating Nicola for around six months, and viewers will soon see their romance on screen.
Producers confirmed the stunning Irish model will be popping up throughout series nine, while also announcing the arrival of five new cast members, who are set to shake up SW3!
In the last series of the E4 reality show, we saw the fallout from Alex's bitter split with Binky Felstead, after she found out about his infidelity.
Speaking to Reveal last month, Alex told us: "People always think I'm this horrible, cheating bloke that they've seen on screen but when they meet me, they realise I'm not as bad as I'm perceived to be.
"I don't see myself as a bad boy but all the stuff that happened with Binky would definitely qualify as that, so I understand the public perception."
However, Alex appears to be pretty smitten with Nicola: "I haven't messed up this time, and I won't - I'm a good boy," he told us. "I'd say she's tamed me."
The brand new 11-part series of Made In Chelsea is expected to kick off in April.
Yesterday it was revealed that MIC would see the addition of five new cast members: Emily Weller, Jess Woodley, Fleur Irving, Millie Wilkinson and Josh Patterson (also known as JP).
Ros Coward, executive producer for Monkey Kingdom, said: "2014 was an exciting year for Chelsea and we're thrilled to be returning to screens with the most glamorous start ever to a series.
"Our favourite cast members are joined by a wealth of exciting new faces who promise to deliver more romance, more heartache, more parties and, above all, more drama in SW3."
Dom Bird, head of formats at Channel 4, added: "We are off to an epic start as 2015 sees our biggest Chelsea cast to date. It's going to be an explosive series with more glamour than ever before from the poshest team on television."
Who's excited? We can't wait!
