Made In Chelsea's Mark Francis Vandelli has some solid advice when it comes to getting by in life...

When he's not offering some light-hearted relief from all that SW3 drama, the Chelsea royal is putting the worlds to right with his barrels of wisdom, chic or so not-chic verdict and a constant flow of bubbly that will set you back by £950.

From surviving social circles, to looking the part and making the most out of life, Mark really does have a quote for every occasion and believe it or not, there's a lot we can learn from the man who honestly thought Nandos was a wine bar...

On making friends...

Always choose your friends wisely - "I once knew someone who had a sleeping bag and the moment I found out, that friendship was over."

On b*tching...

Always keep your dignity - "Great minds discuss ideas, mediocre minds discuss events, simple minds discuss people."

On dealing with the enemy...

Always be one step better - "You capsize this boat, I capsize your world."

On hosting the perfect party...

Always remember, centre pieces are key - "There is nothing more depressing than going to a dinner party where there are no flowers."

On gift giving...

Always remember what is a certified no-go - "Darling, you just cannot give pashminas for Christmas. It's just no - not happening."

On dressing correctly...

Always keep a varied wardrobe - "I always think black and white is best for the sartorially challenged."

On accessorising your getup...

Always stick to your roots - "Unless you have a family tiara, you don't wear one."

On drinking alcohol...

Always know your limits - "More tonic? You're starting to slur."

On living while you're young...

Always make the most of opportunities in your youth - "Your early twenties really are the best time to get your first bronze bust."

On getting ahead in life...

Always be well prepared - "Unless one knows how to foxtrot, one simply doesn't know how to do anything in life."

On preparing for a bombshell...

Always have a stiff drink at the ready - "Do I need to put my secateurs down for this? Darling, you must come in for a restorative glass of champagne."

On dealing with tough times...

Always pick yourself back up - "Get over it and go sculpt yourself."

On standing out from the crowd...

Always embrace your differences - "The concept of normality is so far removed from chic."

Oh Mark, what would we do without you!
