The ninth series of Made in Chelsea kicked off tonight and Twitter went nuts, mainly because there are so many newbies, including Irish model Nicola Hughes.

Dublin model Nicola is dating Alex Mytton, who previously dated show stalwart Binky Felstead, and fans' first introduction to her was while she holidayed with Alex in Barbados.

Joining her were Jamie Laing, Spencer Matthews and his girlfriend Lauren Hutton, and fellow newbie and blonde Jess, who had also previously dated Alex and appeared to want him back, unbeknownst to Nicola.

Jess was joined by yet another newbie, Millie.  (There were even more - JP, Elliot, James and pink-haired Emily)  You can see why fans are slightly perturbed.

Meanwhile, in London, Binky fretted over Alex's new romance, helped not a jot by her Fran-like friend called Fleur who informed her that Alex had said he liked Nicola more than he had liked her.

The Twittersphere wasn't too happy about the preponderance of newbies, the general consensus being there was just too many of them, and fans bemoaned the absence of regulars Lucy Watson and Proudlock.

Nicola, however, had a few male admirers...

Elsewhere in Barbados Spencer told Lauren she's not moving in, just so she knows, like.  And back  in London, Stephanie Pratt and Josh's relationship imploded as he refused to allow her to have her friends over to their flat. 

Here's how it all panned out online:
