At the end of the last series they were very much together.
But we can confirm that Made In Chelsea’s Binky Felstead and her love rat boyfriend Alex Mytton (of Spencer orgy fame) HAVE split up for good.
Thank God for that!
Binky’s sister A-L, who features in the MIC New York spin-off, exclusively told Yahoo Celebrity that the on/off couple have officially called it quits… and she couldn’t be happier!
The successful NY-based artist told us: “They’re not together now. I didn’t actually see any of those scenes but all I know is that they’ve gone their separate ways now.
“I know it hasn’t been easy for her but she’s trying to move on and build up her confidence again.”
The couple were defiantly giving it another ago when they were last on our screens, but the 24-year-old has since hinted that all wasn’t well in paradise.
A-L added: “It was very difficult to watch – for me and mum especially I think.
“From the reaction that Binky had on social media it was very obvious what the majority of people thought about it. It’s easy to comment on someone’s relationship from the outside looking in.
“Although it was blatantly obvious to me and mum what she was doing wasn’t right, her argument was that she had to learn these lessons herself. It was difficult but it seems that she’s come through it now.”
Binky’s sister continued: “I think she felt that she became quite unpopular and she regrets that but at same stage she was very, very much in love with Alex and hoping she could make it work.
“I think she regrets the way she came across. I think she ultimately was very involved with Alex and I think she loves the idea of being in a loving relationship but she was only seeing the good sides.
“It was so frustrating for me and mum because she’s such a pretty girl and has so much to offer but she kept allowing herself to fall for – in my eyes – a complete idiot.”
And while WE were all screaming at out TVs for Binky to wake up, it seems that her family were doing the same.
“Every time he did something else we thought ‘brilliant, now she’ll see the light’, but she didn’t,” said A-L.
“It’s difficult for me because I’ve never been in a position where I’ve been THAT crazy about someone.”
“We’re very different, she loves being in a relationship and that security. She was the youngest of all of us when our parents got divorced so maybe there might be some father issues going on there, I don’t know.”
MIC original Binky fell out with BFFs Lucy and Cheska over Alex and even had a row with her mum on camera.
A-L told us: “I think Binky can be quite hot-headed and I think that mum gives very balanced views. Its not always what everyone wants to hear and I’ve been in that situation where mum’s spoken to me about things and I’ve not necessarily agreed with.
“But ultimately mum wants what’s best for all of us.”
Speaking about her friends, A-L said: “I think Binky felt a bit victimized at the time but at the same time I know that she can be a hot-head and quite argumentative at times so I can see both sides really.”
The Central Saint Martin’s graduate thinks that Alex’s disgraceful behaviour could have something to do with his new-found fame.
She said: “Often with these boys who are quite young, all this new found fame it goes to their heads.
“I think when they were out they’d just get lots of girls rushing up to them and some of these girls these days are pretty out there and obviously flirtatious.”
But we sense that a brand new romance could be on the cards for Binky, as her sis told us:
“Well Binky certainly met people out in New York– they were off to the Hamptons and doing lots of things so I think she met a lot of new people. So yeah, I think she had a nice time when she was out there.
Well, she sure as heck deserves it!
MIC NYC returns on August 9th.
