This cult structured reality show, which broadcasts on E4 in the UK and is entering its 15th series, which is a testament to its huge popularity in the UK. While its audience hover around the one million mark, it has garnered countless columns of media coverage and also proved a big hit with social media users too.
There are no shortage of Brits living aboard and indeed fans from overseas who are keen to tune into the latest series. And in this article we will explain exactly how you can do that on your laptop, smartphone, or tablet, using a VPN.
How to watch Made in Chelsea Abroad
For all Made in Chelsea’s cult appeal, it has still not made it onto full terrestrial TV, but rather has found a home on E4. This is Channel’s Four’s entertainment cable channel which is available on all satellite and cable TV packages as well as Freeview and other set-top boxes.
While it was briefly broadcast on the now-defunct Esquire Network in the USA, it is not currently shown anywhere else in the world. For fans of the show living abroad, this can be a real problem.
But there is a solution. Because fortunately all E4 shows are also made available both live and on-demand on All 4, Channel 4’s online streaming platform.
As is usually the case with such official streaming services, All 4 does not make its streams available to viewers outside the UK. This is because they do not hold the copyright to show many of the shows they broadcast overseas.

What is Made in Chelsea?
If ‘The Only Way is Essex’ was the first true structured reality show on British TV, Made in Chelsea is the one that has taken the genre upmarket. As one critic in the Metro said when the show launched, “The participants are slimmer, sleeker, moneyed and honey-coloured than their Essex counterparts – but some things remain the same.”
The show features 25 recurring cast members, with the new series featuring cameo appearances from Stanley Johnson, father of current British Foreign Secretary and former Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
His link to the show comes through Georgia “Toff” Toffolo, a regular cast member since 2014 who won this year’s British edition of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. Stanley Johnson also took part.
Arguably, the most famous ex-cast member is Spencer Matthews, who has become a mainstay of the British reality TV scene since he left the show. His brother also recently married Pippa Middleton, sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
That is not the shows only royal connection, with one of its early creators, Hugo Taylor, reportedly dating Princess Eugenie for a time. She was even slated for a cameo appearance while the show was in development.
Filming takes place just a few days before the show broadcasts in order to keep plots secret and help writers react to public opinion as the series develops. But it is hard work for the cast, with each episode taking up to four days to record. Their hard work invariably pays off though and the latest season of the show promises to be one of the funniest and most entertaining yet.
