The cast of Made in Chelsea swapped their slick suits for shorts for a day on Brighton seafront.

Chelsea socialites including Spencer Matthews, Ollie Proudlock, Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle were spotted playing volleyball at Brighton’s Yellowave Beach Sports as they filmed series four of the reality show yesterday.

An onlooker said the boys “played quite well”, and that filming went on for about four hours before it was called off at 2pm because of rain.

The cast’s arrival in Brighton caused a stir on Twitter after Jamie and Made in Chelsea pal Millie Mackintosh tweeted about their visit, with several fans commenting that they were heading to the beach to catch a glimpse of the gang.

The fourth series is expected to be screened later this year.
