Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson has revealed her plans to move to New York to be with boyfriend Alik Alfus.

During the last series of the E4 reality show, Alik dropped the bombshell he had to move back to the US to help out with the family business. He had originally moved to London to live with Louise, but has been back in New York for the last few months, meaning the couple have been battling with long distance.

Despite that, Louise and Alik still seem blissfully happy together, so much so, that Louise has now said she is willing to leave Chelsea behind for him.

On Monday night (24 August), viewers watched as Louise told her beau she plans to relocate to New York by the end of this year.

The Chelsea beauty was reunited with Alik after he came to meet her in LA and enjoying a romantic night in, just the two of them, she told him: "I don't know anyone else who would have made the commitment we have to have a long-distance relationship... but I think I'll probably move to New York in December, at the end of this year."

Wanting to make sure his girlfriend had really thought about moving Stateside, Alik replied: "Look, I'm just ecstatic that there's even the prospect of you coming to New York... I'm not going to rush you, I want you to do your own thing and I want you to be comfortable with your decision."

Louise did admit she was hesitant about telling Alik about her moving plans as she was worried he wouldn't want her in New York with him.

Smitten with his co-star love, Alik was quick to reassure Louise, he would love for her to set up home Stateside.

"Honey, are you kidding?! You have to understand I love you so much," he told her. "You can invite yourself wherever the f*** I am. Wherever I go, if I'm alone and you're not by me, I feel incomplete.

"I couldn't think of any better situation than me and you in New York, working for dad, doing our thing... I've never loved anybody like I love you."

Louise's revelation comes after she and Alik have spent the last month or so apart. While the couple have seemed to make long distance work for them so far, it hasn't been easy and Alik has openly admitted he is missing not having Louise with him.

Sharing a photo of her to his Instagram, he told fans: "God I miss her."

While some may be surprised by Louise's decision to move to New York, her younger brother and co-star Sam Thompson had hinted she would leave Chelsea to reunite with Alik.

Reveal caught up with Sam and he told us: "She's smitten and I know he is about her. [Louise] has said if Alik has to go anywhere, she'll go with him."
