Sophie Habboo and Jamie Laing presented with a united front at the series 18 launch of Made In Chelsea this week. Jamie Laing is due to appear in the 2019 edition of Strictly Come Dancing, and fans have speculated he had broken up with his girlfriend Sophie Habboo as the infamous “Strictly curse” was on her mind. Laing has rubbished the rumours, just as Sophie’s ex-flame Sam Thompson returns to Made In Chelsea.
Who are Sophie Habboo’s ex-boyfriends?
Sophie Habboo joined the Made In Chelsea cast in season 16, back in 2018.
She quickly gained the nickname “Habbs”, in a similar way to ex-cast member Georgia “Toff” Toffolo.
Habboo became a central figure on the show, where she had romances with more than one co-star.

Sophie’s first in-show boyfriend was Alex Mytton, the 28-year-old DJ who had several relationships during his time on the show.
The couple dated for most of season 16 and were still firmly together by the end of the series.
However, their relationship didn’t sustain offscreen, and they broke up over Christmas.
Alex told the Sun’s “bizarre” column: “We are kind of just friends. Over Christmas, it fizzled out.”

One source told the Sun Sam was hurt by best friend Jamie’s decision to date his ex.
They said: “Sam has been left devastated by Jamie’s actions. They’ve been close friends for years and Jamie knows how heartbroken Sam was when Habbs finished with him.”
