Made In Chelsea OG's Binky Felstead and Ollie Locke will return to the reality show for the latest series.
The best buds – along with Binky's mother Jane and Ollie's fiancé Gareth – will appear on the 19th run of the show which will air later this month
Binky, 29, and her long-term pal Ollie, 32, have have been absent from the reality series for the past number of years, but announced their epic return in a short video on Instagram .
The brunette beauty announced her departure from the show in May 2017 after falling pregnant with her first child with on-off boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson.
Meanwhile Ollie left Made in Chelsea for four seasons, in 2013 then made his return in 2015 for the end of its LA series.
The star appeared as regular cast member for a run of seasons, but hasn't been present since late 2018.
In the upcoming season, Ollie will be focused on planning his upcoming wedding with his beau Gareth, and of course, Binky will be on top of the wedding rituals for her best friend.
Both stars will be reunited with other longstanding cast members who still appear on the show including current Celebs Go Dating star Liv Bentley, as well as Sophie Hermann, Sam Thompson, Fredrik Ferrier, Jamie Laing, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Alex Mytton.
Speaking to The Mail Online about his long-awaited return, Ollie revealed that he was beyond excited to be back on familiar turf.
"I couldn’t be happier to be back home in Chelsea and even more special to be alongside my Binky.
'It’s the start of a new adventure as Gareth and I plan our wedding and I’m so excited everyone has the opportunity to watch the process. I can’t wait to see where this year takes us".
Binky also shared her excitement about getting back into filming; something which she has missed doing with her BFF.
"It's so good to be back with my Made In Chelsea family. To be coming back with my best friend, Ollie and his fiancé Gareth as we navigate the next stage of our lives is so exciting and I can’t wait for everyone to watch what we get up to this year".
Binky was one of the only original cast members to feature consistently for most of the run, from season one through to MIC:Ibiza in 2017.
She then made a surprise one-off appearance in season 16, the following year.
Ollie introduced his fiancé Gareth on the show after they got engaged in 2018, but he only appeared briefly so viewers never got to see the person who Ollie fell in love with.
Taking to Instagram to share his opinion on returning to the series, Ollie shared a sweet video with Binky.
He captioned this: "A PRETTY HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT… WE ARE BACK!!! Me and Binky are back filming together on MADE IN CHELSEA!!"
"Whist I have been acting and Binky has been busy being an amazing mummy and running her businesses we’ve managed to film some of the funniest, joyous and most heartfelt moments we have ever put on camera.
"Our friendship is exactly the same but we are now a bit older… Oh and this time there is a wedding to plan!!"
Made In Chelsea returns later this month to E4.
