Made In Chelsea: Jamie Laing has revealed he had no idea his 'boy' and BFF Francis Boulle was returning to the show for its South of France spinoff series.

Tonight (1 August), Made In Chelsea returns to our screens and our Chelsea faves touch down in Cannes. This time round, though, they are joined by one VERY familiar face, as Francis is making a brief comeback to the show.

We caught up with Jamie recently, and funnily enough, he told us that Francis hadn't mentioned he'd be joining Jamie for filming overseas...

"He didn't tell me he was coming back!" Jamie exclusively told Reveal. "He's my boy."

Gushing about Francis, it's pretty clear that Jamie was more than happy to have him back on board. He said: "I lived with him for three years and he's one of my best friends in the entire world. It was amazing."

And having seen one of his pals make a return to the show, Jamie revealed he would be keen for Spencer Matthews to do the same. Spencer hasn't returned to Made In Chelsea, since leaving to take part in I'm A Celebrity last year.

Jamie admitted: "Spenny is amazing. Of course, I miss him. Weirdly, I've just bought a flat underneath him, so I will see him everyday now."

"I hope he does [come back]," he said. "Francis is now back, people come and go whenever they want. I'm hoping he will."

Francis and Spencer aren't the only MIC stars Jamie has been rubbing shoulders with lately, as he also teamed up with Andy Jordan for Malibu rum's new campaign, Malibros.

The boys filmed a short bromance video and speaking about Andy, Jamie said: "He's left the show now, but he's still a good friend of mine. He's so lovely. He's singing and currently doing his music at the moment. He's great."

"The great thing about our show is that we've all been friends since we were kids, 13 years old," Jamie explained. "We still see each other all the time."

Malibros Jamie and Andy filmed a short video for Malibu rum campaign to encourage men embrace their inner Malibro and not to be afraid of ordering their favourite fruity drink at a bar. Follow the conversation with #Malibros.
