Her summer split with Alex Mytton hit headlines across the UK and Ireland, but former Made in Chelsea star Nicola Hughes admits that she's is making the most of her newly single status.  

Indeed, it was widely rumoured earlier this year that she was healing her broken heart in the arms of none-other than Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini.

Speaking to SHEmazing! in Dublin earlier this week in her capacity as an Instyler ambassador, the Sandyford native insists she’s not actually "dating” Cheryl Cole’s ex-husband. 

However, Ms Hughes did playfully mention that she and the dashing French businessman have certainly “talked since” being pictured leaving a London nightclub together in June.

That said, it seems even Jean Bernard won’t be tempting the 26-year-old away from her life as a singleton any time soon.

“I actually love being single,” she reveals. “I never thought I would say that in my life, but I do. I don’t think I’d date anyone any time soon in the public eye. 

"I kind of want to take a break from all of that drama and everyone knowing your business.”

The Dublin model furthermore explains why she chose not to film her Made In Chelsea breakup with Alex, detailing the benefits of regaining her freedom from the hit E4 reality show.

“I didn’t want to fly to France and film the breakup. I didn’t see the point,” confesses Nicola. “I joined that show more or less for Alex… It was all on his terms and for the first time it was my terms.”

Despite describing her time on the series as an “amazing opportunity”, Nicola remains adamant that she will not be returning to the reality genre any time soon. Instead, she'll be turning her attention towards TV presenting and designing her new clothing line.

“It’s nice to have my freedom back… You don’t really have much of a life [when filming]. You’re theirs, so it’s nice to have a break from it.”


Pity you had to leave so soon @tiffanyc_watson  We'll make the most of it next time

It's a point Nicola’s friend and former co-star Tiffany Watson, who joined her in the capital on Tuesday to promote InStyler’s new Straight Up Straightening Brush, very much agrees with.

Sadly, Tiffany’s hectic filming schedule meant she could only stop off in Ireland for the InStyler shoot.

The star’s work commitments also cut her recent birthday trip to Iceland with boyfriend Sam Thompson notably short.

“We’ve just been to Iceland for my birthday last week. We couldn’t get any more time off from filming so we just went for two days and one night,” she explains.

But even brief romantic getaways appear welcome, as Tiffany’s once tumultuous relationship seems to have entered a more positive, drama-free phase.

“I think [Sam and I] have gotten really good at speaking about everything and understanding that certain things are not how they would be if we weren’t on the show,” she says.

“I really trust him and I think [the show is] a test of your relationship. If you can get through, it must mean you’re good together.”


Happy birthday to a beautiful set of ears @tiffanyc_watson you make me

He’s been dubbed “a vile human being” by his ex, Nicola Hughes, but it seems that hasn’t curbed Lottie Moss’ interest in MIC’s Alex Mytton.   

After being spotted together for the fifth time in two weeks, fans are convinced that the reality star has launched a blossoming romance with Kate Moss’ little sister.

Last night, the famous pair made an appearance at a Breast Cancer Awareness month charity event and – according the Mail Online – 18-year-old Lottie is already well embedded in the Made in Chelsea crew after previously becoming involved with Alex’s friend Sam Prince.

Alex’s tumultuous relationship with Irish model Nicola Hughes ended this summer after the 25-year-old DJ sent her a break-up text while she was holidaying with her family in Florence.

Lottie was last seen with her ex-boyfriend, Josh Goldin, in July.


Soirée! Pulling off the  emoji here!!

In the past, the model has been linked with Too Good singer Conor Maynard and was reportedly flirting with Geordie Shore’s Ricci Guarnaccio on Twitter.

While it is still very early days for Alex and Lottie, we think this could be one to watch.

Nicola Hughes certainly didn't hold back in her latest interview with New! magazine.

The reality star was left heartbroken when her boyfriend Alex Mytton split up with her, via text message, when she was on a family holiday in Florence.

The pair have been on and off for about two years now, but now Nicola says after their last fall out, it's totally over.

"It was upsetting but then I laughed about it," she admitted.

"He's gross… a vile human."

However, that doesn't mean that her life is simple now that Alex is out of it. 

Nicola also admitted that while she's still single, she's been out on a few dates with one of Binky Felstead's exes.

"I'm definitely single. I'm not seeing anyone but I have been on dates with one of Binky's exes, who she dated two years ago. She's so angry about it," she added.

Nicola also spoke out about the rumours of romance swirling around her and Cheryl's ex Jean Bernard.

"I didn't know who he was. I was in a bar called STK in London and a friend invited me over to his table. We exchanged numbers but there's nothing there. I don't want to be associate with him."

Ahh, all is fair in love and war, right?


Following a month of speculation, Made in Chelsea's Nicola Hughes has reportedly confirmed her romance with Cheryl's ex-husband Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

The Sandyford native sparked romance rumours just over a month ago when she was spotted leaving London’s Chiltern Firehouse with the famous Frenchman and now Nicola has revealed that she and the restaurateur have been in touch ever since.

The 26-year-old model told The Daily Star: “He’s a friend of a friend. He was a nice bloke. And yes, we’ve been in touch since that night.”  Ooohh!

But it seems the pair aren’t taking their budding romance too seriously just yet as she told the paper: “Single life is fantastic.”

Nicola starred in RTE’s Exiles reality series before making her Made in Chelsea debut as Alex Mytton’s girlfriend and although the pair have since ended their relationship, the Dubliner has confirmed that she is signed with the reality show until the end of this year.

That said, it seems Nicola will not be featured in the upcoming series Made in Chelsea: South of France as she told The Daily Star:  “I didn’t film anything in France. Let’s just say there was a lot of backstabbing I didn’t want to get involved in.”

The estranged husband of pop-star Cheryl Cole, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, is reportedly being courted to join the Made in Chelsea cast.

Jean-Bernard has recently been caught up in a MIC love triangle with Nicola Hughes and Alex Mytton, and was spotted leaving a London nightclub with Nicola this week.


And another thing…

Now, Chelsea party boy Jamie Laing is hoping to get Jean-Bernard on the show, so we can all watch sparks fly between himself and Nicola.

Jamie told The Sun that "It would be such a good story line if we got him on the show with Nicola. Nicola’s single so she should just go for it."

Despite being eager to get the French businessman on board, Jamie has never actually met Jean-Bernard. 

"I’ve never met him but he sounds great. I love French people and speaking French."

Cheryl wed Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in July 2014 after a brief three month relationship.

However, they ended their marriage in late 2015, and Cheryl has moved on with One Direction star Liam Payne.

The next season of Made in Chelsea is set in the South of France, and kicks off in August. 


With the glorious weather we've been experiencing, Nicola Hughes took to her local park this week, showing off her fab figure while sunbathing in a bikini.

However, one person is rather unimpressed with Nicola's display…

Having recently broken up, the Irish model's ex-fella, Alex Mytton, doesn't seem to be taking the break up well. 

Alex tweeted his 230k followers saying ‘Guys I may go to the park alone today..I may also get unchanged and changed again due to the heat, hope no one sees me, that would be s***.’

Harsh much?

Like a phoenix from the ashes, Nicola was seen yesterday strolling through the streets of London looking gorgeous in a cream bardot playsuit, and stunning golden locks from Gold Fever hair extensions. 

She seemed relatively happy and at ease for someone who had suffered major shade from her ex just days before.

Nicola and Alex called it quits after a number of cheating rumours emerged earlier this year.

We're team Nicola! 


As his estranged wife Cheryl is in a new relationship with One Direction's Liam Payne, it seems that Jean Bernard Versini is getting cosy with another celeb.

The restaurateur was spotted in the early hours of this morning leaving a London hot spot with Irish reality star Nicola Hughes.

The Made In Chelsea star tried her best to hide her face as the paparazzi snapped them leaving in the same car together.

Cheryl and Jean Bernard separated at the end of 2015, and many were surprised with how fast she moved on with Liam.

But now that Jean Bernard seems to have found a new love interest, we can only imagine they'll be moving on with a divorce soon.

The next guest host set to front TV3's daily fashion and entertainment show is none other than model and reality star, Nicola Hughes. 

If you have been keeping up with the shenanigans in Made in Chelsea over the last two seasons, you will no doubt know Nicola as Alex Mytton's Irish girlfriend. 

And if the last few episodes are anything to go by, it seems there might be trouble in paradise for the attractive couple. 

However, Nicola's career in television continues to soar as the model has been picked up as a guest host for Xposé for three days starting tonight. 

Nicola made her TV debut on RTE's Series Exiles before heading over to make her mark on Chelsea. 

Already a longtime fan of the series, Nicola is chuffed to be joining the Xposé team. 

"I’ve seen working the red carpets over here in London so it’s really exciting to get the opportunity to work with them at home in Dublin."

And it seems that TV3 are also excited to have her. 

"Nicola is building her profile in the UK and is a big fan of Xposé. Her following on Instagram is testament to her growing popularity," says producer of the show, Daniel Readman.

We know Nicola is well able to cause a fight on reality TV, but we can't wait to see how she does as a presenter. 


She wasn't included in the lineup for Made In Chelsea's Los Angeles spin-off – which is currently being filmed with the rest of the regular cast. 

But despite seemingly being snubbed by producers, Nicola Hughes was nevertheless happy to jet out to California to spend time with her boyfriend of a year, MIC bad boy Alex Mytton – while he gets on with filming.

Over the weekend, the duo – who met in a Kildare nightclub – toasted their union, also hitting Disneyland yesterday.

The Dublin model posted a snap to Instagram of her and Alex donning novelty Mickey Mouse ears, complete with the caption "happy anniversary".

And despite being able to enjoy a lengthy break Stateside, she told Goss.ie yesterday that her schedule was simply too hectic to take part in MIC this summer.

“I’m not in the show, I wasn’t able to. I was too busy,” she said, adding that she visited friends in Santa Monica before meeting up with Alex more recently.

Ms Hughes also confirmed to the same Irish-based website that she'll be be back for the next series of Made In Chelsea in London in the autumn. 

Sadly, his filming commitments mean that the love-birds can't live together in LA, but they're getting to spend plenty of time together nonetheless – with both stars regularly posting images of one another to their respective social media accounts.

Mr Mytton had a bad-boy reputation before finding his perfect match in Nicola; he notoriously cheated on his previous love, Binky Felstead, also a long-standing member of the same reality TV show.



Is that what we think it is? Oh why yes it is… it's Alex Mytton trying his best to Irish dance.

Irish model and Made In Chelsea star, Nicola Hughes, just posted a downright hilarious video of her terribly posh English boyfriend, Alex Mytton, attempting to get a bit of a céilí going.

And we think you'll agree, it makes for some truly excellent viewing…

The video was posted from Co. Cavan, where Alex was clearly getting into the Irish spirit – or certainly trying to.

At least the couple themselves seem stronger than ever – both on screen and off. In a brand new interview with OK magazine, the pair open up about their feud with MIC's Jess Woodley, as well as their future together.

In the interview, the 25 year-old Dubliner admits that she felt betrayed when she found out that Jess, an ex of Alex’s and someone who Nicola had thought of as a friend, said she had "unfinished business" with him.

“I didn’t know she fancied my boyfriend. I gave her the chance to tell me how she felt and she chose not to.”

But Jess’ crush on Alex doesn’t seem to have had too much of an impact on the couple, who admitted that they have talked about getting married and having kids in the future.

Alex even admitted: “I’ve thought about proposing to Nicola when I’ve been drunk.”

Oh we really hope that this happens on air! A Made In Chelsea wedding is exactly what we need. 


Nicola Hughes has seen her profile sky-rocket in the last year; namely since she found love with Made In Chelsea bad-boy Alex Mytton.

​She's gone on to star in the E4 reality TV show herself, and is also currently appearing on RTE's Exiles

But the 25-year-old was in Kildare this morning to help launch Cathedral bar's asador grill, which will open in two weeks' time.

And there, she proudly held aloft a lobster for waiting photographers, and also had a go – seemingly anyway – at running across hot coals. 

"I’m commuting between London and Dublin at the moment," Nicola explained, "but being a real home bird, I’m so delighted to discover this amazing new venue."

She added: "And after sampling the menu, I can safely say that the food is definitely of a divine nature!"

Head chef Austin Byrne, who arrives at Cathedral from Trocadero in Dublin and has trained under Marco Pierre White, went on to explain: “Our asador grill and smokehouse BBQs are unique in Ireland.

"They will allow us to cook a wide variety of meats with incredibly distinctive wood-smoked flavours from our two kitchens.”

The Cathedral bar was originally a ballroom, hotel and coach house dating back to 1777. It stretches to 2,800sq metres and when completed next month, will be a massive multi-level restaurant and bar complex.

The tropical garden outdoor space even comes complete with a waterfall.

Last month, Nicola spoke exclusively to SHEmazing! revealing that she is already lining up her plan B for when Made In Chelsea wraps up. She also gave a glimpse of what domestic life is like with boyfriend Alex.

"We laze around like slobs!" she laughed when we asked her about the glamorous London social scene. "It’s just so hectic all the time that if we have an evening off we want to stay in."


As a cast member of the hugely popular Made In Chelsea reality TV show, Nicola Hughes is witnessing her profile rapidly rise. And when filming for this series wraps up, she’s hoping to make the move into presenting.

“When I was in Canada filming for RTE’s Exiles show, I worked for a TV station out there. I was able to build up my show-reel, which is invaluable," she tells SHEmazing! "And Made In Chelsea is brilliant experience too. I’m learning lots about being in front of a camera and about all the technicalities and behind-the-scenes stuff that goes into producing a big show.”

Nicola Huges has been dating her Made In Chelsea co-star Alex Mytton for around eight months – and things have already moved fast. They’ve holidayed together and she now lives with him in central London. They’re both also met each other’s respective families and despite his one-time bad-boy reputation, they are very much loved-up.

Away from the parties and glamour of the London social scene, Nicola reveals that their perfect night out is actually a night in.

“We laze around like slobs!” she laughs."It’s just so hectic all the time that if we have an evening off we want to stay in – Alex DJs a lot as well so heading out to a club would feel a bit like work for him anyway. We're happy to just put our feet up and watch Fortitude.”

Nicola and Alex went horse-riding in Hyde Park for her birthday last month


Nicola also says that although she spent years – unsuccessfully – pestering her parents to get her a dog, she and Alex are unlikely to take the plunge into puppy parenthood anytime soon. “It’s actually something we’ve spoken about. But the timing’s not right. We live in an apartment and we both travel a good bit so it wouldn’t be fair. But one day when I have a house and a garden and all that, it’s definitely on the to-do list.”

She adds that she and Alex are hoping to go to Morocco later this year. “We had planned to go see the Northern Lights, but it didn’t work out in the end. Alex is dying to go to Morocco so hopefully that will pan out instead.

Nicola and Alex have holidayed together before 


“I’m not really a sun person – you’ll usually find me in the shade with a book and a big hat on. I like waiting until it’s evening time before emerging into the rays.”
