The entrepreneur was spotted in the new trailer for the show's brand new 10th series alongside returning star Ollie Locke.
In the scene, Ollie tells Richard a rumour about Spencer Matthews as the pair drive around Chelsea in a car.
A rep for the show has now confirmed to Reveal: "Richard will be appearing in series 10."
Richard was last seen on the show in 2013 after two series. He was friends with Ollie, Cheska Hull and Binky Felstead, and he dated former MIC star Kimberley Garner.
Richard's return follows Ollie Locke's decision to return to the show after quitting the show two years.
Ollie already teased the new series, saying this month: "I love you all so much...and series 10 is quite simply amazing!! Thank you for being so wonderful.. I'm so glad to be home."
The new series of MIC will return to E4 soon.
