More trouble for MIC star Olivia…
Made In Chelsea has become embroiled in a drugs scandal after a video emerged appearing to show one of its stars snorting a suspicious-looking white powder – and she’s now been SUSPENDED from the show.
Olivia Bentley, who joined the cast of the series earlier this year, is seen sniffing a line of the substance in footage obtained by The Sun.
The clip shows the the 21-year-old sat at a table with others as she discusses the fact that she’s on MIC.
‘I’m on a TV show so people write s*** all the time. I quite like reading the articles,’ Olivia says.
She’s then apparently seen snorting a line of the powder from the table using a rolled-up banknote before passing the note to a man sat next to her.
Olivia – who works as a photographer and has been a popular addition to MIC, a show watched by many teenagers and young people – goes on to dab at what’s left and lick her finger.
The house party in Chelsea where the clip was filmed reportedly took place on 24 September after Olivia had earlier been enjoying herself at Distrikt club in London.
A source says: ‘There were about 30 people there. Because it was in Chelsea, her stomping ground, she knew most of them.
‘But there were people she didn’t know. I was shocked she’d do drugs in front of them.
‘She’ll regret it if she is booted off the show.’
There’s been no comment from Olivia as of yet following the shock video but Made In Chelsea bosses have taken action by suspending her whilst they look into what’s happened.
A spokesperson tells MailOnline: ‘Olivia has been suspended from the show pending an investigation.’
It comes as another scandal for the blonde star, with her having recently faced accusations that her backstory upon joining MIC might not be accurate.
Producers had said that Olivia was a direct descendant of W. O. Bentley, the man who founded Bentley Motors.
But this has been denied by his step-grandson Miles Hutton, who has said that W. O. Bentley had no children so claims that she is a great-great-great-granddaughter of him are incorrect.
Despite this, a spokesman for the show insisted to the Daily Mail that Olivia is a ‘distant relative of the Bentley family’ but did not have the ‘precise details’ of who she’s related to.
