Made In Chelsea’s Toff defends Mimi Bouchard for flirting with Olivia Bentley’s boyfriend
Made In Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo has said that Mimi Bouchard “shouldn’t get the blame” for Olivia Bentley and Fredrik Ferrier splitting up.
New girl Mimi has given quite the first impression since stepping foot in Chelsea and has already caused a seemingly happy relationship to break down. The latest cast member ruffled some feathers after openly flirting with Liv’s boyfriend Fredrik.
When Liv discovered that Fred hadn’t exactly turned down her advances, she accused her man of having a “lack of respect” and “embarrassing” her before ending the romance.
Mimi’s actions have divided cast members, with Daisy Robins telling Star magazine: “I’ll always have Liv’s back. I don’t think it’s right to behave the way Mimi did. I really don’t care for her, she’s not my cup of tea.
“We’ll never be friends. I’d rather not even give her the time of day… she’s so irritating.”
She added: “With Mimi, it’s all ‘Me, Me Me.’ Unfortunately it’s not all about her, the home-wrecker!”
Toff, on the other hand, has jumped to her co-star’s defence, arguing: “She’s honest, unlike some girls. she’s not shady and doesn’t go behind other girls’ backs.”
The MIC star continued: “She’s headstrong and very confident, which the other girls find intimidating.
“I think the girls are hypocritical. They had a massive go at Mimi and she hasn’t actually done anything wrong. Fred reached out to a mutual friend – that’s not Mimi’s fault.”
Talking to Star magazine, Toff added: “I don’t know why everyone’s up in arms about it. If a guy behaves the way friend did, the girl shouldn’t get the blame.
“Their relationship obviously wasn’t functioning the way it should if he’s interested in another girl. I’m glad they’ve split up. You shouldn’t be with a guy if he’s going to do that.”
Made In Chelsea continues Monday at 9pm on E4.
