Reality tv star Nicola Hughes said she has "come to terms" with her split from Alex Mytton.

The 25-year-old Irish model shot to fame in 2015 when she first appeared on Made in Chelsea as part of her relationship with Mytton and after an on/off two year relationship, they split for good earlier this year.

He revealed onscreen that they he broke up with her via text message on MIC spin-off MIC: South of France and watching as he had a one night stand with co-star Olivia Bentley.

"Myself and Alex are actually quite good," she told OK! Magazine.

"Obviously, originally the break up was quite messy but it's now four months later and we've come to terms with things together."

"We'll never be in a relationship again but we can be civil.

"When Alex broke up wih me and cheated and what not he then came back to me.

"So for me, that was kind of all I wanted because it was quite a shock when he broke up with me. So for him to then come back, it was just a nice feeling, I guess?!"

The latest series of the hit E4 show returned to our screens on Monday without her, but she said she'll always support the programme.

"Oh yeah, I'll always support Made in Chelsea. I've been on the show for the last two years, it's what brought me to the UK so I'll always love them."

Their split was acrimonious at first with the former beauty queen describing him as a "gross, vile human" in an August interview.

"It was upsetting but then I laughed about it. He's gross, a vile human."

"I would never lower myself to getting back with him.

"I hope he finds whoever makes him happy. I thought I was pretty good, but obviously not."
