Dublin model Nicola Hughes caused quite a stir last night in E4’s Made In Chelsea when she finally came head-to-head with her boyfriend’s ex.
The Sandyford native, who has been dating reality star Alex Mytton since August, finally bumped into his former girlfriend Binky Felstead.
In a tension-filled episode, Nicola hit out at her new co-star and nemesis for talking about her behind her back and said she felt sorry for Binky, who she claimed still hadn’t gotten over Alex.
“I kind of feel quite sorry for her I guess, if she’s still talking about him she’s obviously not over it,” quipped Nicola.
In last night’s episode, a confident Nicola approached Binky and introduced herself saying, “It’s nice to finally meet you”, making sure to point out that Alex’s past relationship ended a long time ago.
“It’s been so long since you broke up,” Nicola stressed.
While the girls initial meeting seemed amiable enough, Nicola later stated that Binky was acting “fake” and she informed Alex that if it happened again, she was “definitely going to call her out on it.”
And things did come to a head when the pair crossed paths again, with Nicola telling Binky she felt a bit uncomfortable during their initial encounter.
“I just didn’t feel like it was genuine,” she told her.
Nicola who is now set to be a permanent fixture on the hugely popular E4 show, made a fleeting visit back to Dublin this weekend. She first caught up with friends in Ranelagh where she celebrated her birthday, and was then joined by her DJ boyfriend Alex.
The smitten couple spent the night in Kildare, revisiting the hotel where they first met last year. They partied in the Naas Court Hotel until the early hours, where Alex took to the decks to play some music for his Irish MIC fans, while his girlfriend danced the night away.
