Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson proved there's no rest for the wicked as she headed to a radio appearance in Ireland just 48 hours after touching back down in London from LA.

For the last two months, Louise has been across the pond filming Made In Chelsea's spinoff series. With things all now wrapped up Stateside, Louise returned to Chelsea earlier this week, leaving her beau Alik Alfus in the US.

But before she could even settle into her bed after her 10 hour stint on an aeroplane, the reality star was off to Ireland to chat with Anton Savage on Today FM. We're feeling exhausted just thinking about it...

Louise, however, looked nothing but bright eyed as she arrived at the Today FM studios. Keen to flaunt her LA glow (thanks to eight weeks of hardcore tanning), Louise cut a beautifully bronzed figure in a vintage white dress and little ankle boots.

Adding to her boho-inspired getup, Louise wore her glossy locks in tousled waves, sporting a pretty braid on one side of her bonce. Pretty cute, huh?

While appearing on radio, Louise gave fans a little insight into what she and her MIC co-stars got up to in LA, and by the sounds of things, there was your usual dose of Chelsea drama.

"I was there for two months, so [I'm] basically a local," she told Anton. "We were taken there, me and 12 friends, staying in three houses spread out over West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, essentially being ourselves, but it can be emotionally stressful! It's not always easy."

Of course, talk soon turned to Louise's boyfriend Alik and their relationship. Recalling how they first met, the Chelsea beauty admitted she wasn't actually a fan of her beau at first.

She said: "[Alik and I] met in New York. He turned up to a party I was at. Me and my friend were like 'oh no, who is that new guy?, He's so obnoxious, he's really loud.' I wasn't interested at all. Like I said earlier, I'm really bad at saying no, so when he asked me out I kind of had to give him the benefit of the doubt and we fell in love. He took me on some really good dates."

Those dates being a festival in Central Park and an interactive theatre... not your usual go-to dates eh!

Louise's comments come after she recently told fans she has the "best boyfriend ever".

On leaving LA, Louise had shared a cute photo of herself and Alik to Instagram, gushing about her other half while doing so. It's safe to say he's definitely now won her over!

Last series, viewers had grown concerned for the pair's romance as Alik dropped the bombshell he had to return to New York. He had been living in London with Louise, but he revealed his family had asked him to return to the US to help with the family business.

Shortly after his exit, Louise had travelled to the States to see him, and after spending the summer in LA with Alik, the couple will have to embark on a long distance relationship now Louise is back home again.

Insisting the pair's relationship can survive across two continents, Louise's younger brother Sam Thompson told Reveal he is certain Louise and Alik can go the distance. Even hinting, Louise could follow her boyfriend overseas!

"She's said if Alik has to go anywhere, she'll go with him," he told us. "She's smitten and I know he is about her."
