"It's 5am and I'm hanging out in the airport lounge at Gatwick's North terminal.

I've got my hoody up and my banana porridge in hand. I'm ready to fly with to Ibiza...except I've lost my passport! Luckily, my girlfriend Emma is here to mind me (and supply healthy in-flight snacks in the form of freshly chopped watermelon in Tupperware, bless her).

Thankfully, she's also on hand to retrieve said passport which was accidentally left on the train en-route to the airport. Oops.

Ready for take off (after taking a few selfies, of course) and we're snuggled up on board our Thomson flight with our matching neck pillows and some Haribo Starmix for good measure.

It's touch down on Spanish soil and check-in time at Thomson Scene's plush Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotelon the hip 'n' happening Playa d'en Bossa.

Getting the full VIP treatment, I'm holed up for the next few nights in a swanky suite complete with hot tub and a not-so mini bar. Yeah boi! Let the partying commence!

Following a delicious Japanese feast in the hotel's uber-cool Minami restaurant, it's off to enjoy resident DJ Armin Van Buuren's headline sets at the poolside stage.

Fresh (cough) from a night of partying, I hit the road in style in an open-top jeep for our island safari adventure. We stop off at beautiful vistas and idyllic beaches along the way for a refreshing dip and some Insta-worthy pics and pay a visit to the island's oldest tree where we go in for a group hug after our guide tells us it's good luck. Peace, dude!

After a day of breathtaking views and knowledgeable insight from our guide, it's back to the swanky Ushuaia Tower to get glammed up for the night ahead.

Next, it's on to the Hard Rock Hotel for Tinie Tempah's residency, but not before enjoying a Heston Blumenthal-style gastronomical feast at Estado Puro.

Before long, Emma's teaching our group some good old fashioned drinking games and it's down-in-one tequila shots for anyone who can't handle the rules.

I might be at home in Ibiza, but fear not, I will be returning to Made In Chelsea. I still love the show. But there will be a point where I move on completely – after all, I've been doing the show for four years.

Our final day sees us take a boat trip to the idyllic island of Fortmentera, where we take in the sights of the postcard perfect little town, which is a favourite with the A-listers.

And it wouldn't be a trip to Ibiza without a pilgrimage to the islands coolest beachside dining and drinking scene: The Blue Marlin. And with that we dance the night away under the stars before our flight back to Blighty…
