What’s happened to Jamie on Made In Chelsea?
Throughout Jamie’s time on the show, his tumultuous love life has been eagerly followed by MIC viewers.
Making up his mind on the women he fancied seemed to be a recurring theme for the Casanova.
He struggled to decide if he liked Phoebe Lettice or Tara Keeney in series five, before his love for Lucy Watson blossomed later that year.
After that relationship, he dated Jess Woodley, Naz Gharai and Frankie Gaff.
In February 2018 it was revealed he is dating Heloise Agostinelli, who made her debut on MIC in March 2018.

Starring on MIC has opened many avenues for Jamie in the world of showbiz.
In February 2019, he took part in Channel 4 four-part series Famous And Fighting Crime that pretty much does what it says on the tin – it’s famous people fighting crime on the UK’s streets.
But many people will also recognise him from shows including Celebrity First Dates and Celebrity Hunted.
Jamie’s wit and likeable personality has landed him spots as a panellist on comedy programmes 8 Out of 10 Cats and Would I Lie to You.
Not all of his telly appearances have been easy viewing though, as viewers were left feeling queasy during his segment on I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp.
Jamie and Vicky Pattison turned stomachs when they gagged on some eyeballs as they attempted to swallow them.
Fans were also disgusted at the state of his dirty flat when the rich business owner appeared on Through The Keyhole.
