Did you know that real men play bowls with the boys wearing sleeveless leopard print shirts? I’m not entirely sure that it’s a full-proof theory but Jamie Laing is certainly a believer.
After a catch-up with the boys we joined Rosie, Binks and Louise at Fulham Palace for some iced tea and gossip. Louise decided to share Andy’s confession of love with the girls while Binky rather awkwardly mentioned the couple’s baby nursery again. Are the producers trying to tell us something? Louise looked great in her trademark tee-and-blazer combo and topped the whole thing off with some rather dazzling earrings.
Rosie was rocking casual chic in an All Saints Trench, Chantelles shoes and jeans and a jumper from Zara. Like most of Rosie’s outfits, this easy-breezy look is simple to re-create and will suit pretty much anyone!

Next we headed over to join a modern day domestic goddess. In case you ever fancy parading around in front of your roommate and your roommate’s bestie wearing nothing but your underwear, here’s how you can make sure you don’t look like a twozuk. (No guarantee included).
Lucy’s dainty set will set you back around £110. She was wearing the Scallop Bra and Classic Knicker from Petits Bisous. Find some more affordable versions below.
Meanwhile, Lucy and new love-interest Alex went on a non-date and Spencer sent Lucy a text to let her know how much he was missing her. Millie and Rosie headed to the courts with Francis and Jamie and Mark Francis invited everyone to a masquerade ball. On a side note, trust Rosie to look this cute when playing a spot of tennis.
She was wearing a crown from Crown & Glory. At just £18 this gorgeous accessory is on the top of my list for the summer, and they come in so many beautiful colours! I highly recommended checking them out for some pretty hair essentials.
In other news, Jamie decided he’s too young to have enemies so we joined him to witness a heartfelt confession on Lucy’s brand new doorstep. Her black blouse and statement necklace combo looked great. It’s a lovely way to add some interest to a plain blouse.
Jamie’s apology seemed pretty genuine and the only thing that Lucy had to do was promise not to fall in love with him again. Seems like a fair deal.
It all got a bit heated during Ashley and Josh’s date courtesy of Mr I’m-Only-Gay-When-It-Suits-Me. It’s okay though because Ashley’s an Aries which means she gets a bit hot under the collar sometimes and Ollie is really really sorry.
Phoebe seems to be getting more and more agitated by Alex and Lucy’s relationship, even though she doesn’t really care and is convinced that Alex isn’t into it at all. After all, he’s still madly in love with her and isn’t at all compatible with Lucy, yah? It’s a good thing she looked hot during her rendezvous with Jamie and Francis because Not-Really-Into-It Alex was making out with Lucy Watson at the same time. #Awkward.
She was wearing a cute white tee with a khaki jacket and gold necklace. Again, this is so easy to wear and you could probably create the same effect by digging into your wardrobe and using what you already have.
The masquerade ball was an avalanche of glamour. From Lucy’s plunging neckline to Millie’s embellished bodice, the girls scored highly in the designer fashion stakes in this scene. Lucy went for total elegance in a floor-length black gown, deco-inspired pearl earrings and an up ‘do.
It wouldn’t be a Chelsea party without a cat-fight and the claws definitely came out when Phoebe approached Binky and Lucy for a chat about Alex. Is it just me or did Phoebe seem genuinely psychotic in this episode? Like, properly scary?

Rosie was wearing a Sophia Kah dress with a Joomi Lin necklace and Emily H London jewellery. Her mask is from Face Lace by Phyllis Cohen. Known for her intricate and beautiful designs, her face masks take minutes to apply and are totally smudge-resistant. They look so professional too and can be done from the comfort of your own bedroom before a fancy event! The designs start from £9.
The episode wrapped up nicely with an invitation from Spencer for the gang (plus newbie Alex) to join him at one of his bajillion properties. How convenient.
