Made In Chelsea star Alex Mytton has opened up about his past relationship on the show with Binky Felstead and said that he wants fans to “move on” from the drama.
Speaking to Vicky Pattison on Vicky Pattison: The Secret To podcast, Vicky asked Alex, 30, about his ability to come back from his prior relationship with Binky.
She asked: “Did you manage to come back from what happened to you and Binky?”
Alex opened up about the public perception of him following the drama that saw him cheating on Binky, who he saw as “the nation’s sweetheart” at the time.
He said: “To this day people still come up to me and they go – ‘what you did to Binky!’
“And I’m like, it was ten years ago, move on. God that was so savage. It was so intense. I'd just joined the show and at the time Binky was the nation’s sweetheart.
“So we started dating, and I was new on the show and doing all these PA’s and got a bit carried away and just ended up being a massive a******e and cheating.
Alex opened up about being confronted by production about his cheating and the pressure he felt to come clean.
He continued: “And I kind of committed to the lie when they [the producers] were like we’ve heard what’s going on, you’re going to have to talk about it.
“And I was like – I have no idea what you’re talking about, it’s all lies. I came to a junction in the road and it was either come clean now or lie and stay committed to it.
“And we got to ep 8 and I was still holding up the lie – it was like a leaky bucket.
“My anxiety was so bad, because every scene I turned up to I thought have they done a bit of research and found the girl.
“So I was there in these scenes just looking over my shoulders, feeling so sketchy.”
Alex and Binky had tried to make their relationship work throughout the shocking transgressions but the pair called it quits in 2014 after Binky admitted it made her feel “a bit like a psycho”.
Speaking to The Sun’s TV Biz in 2014, she said: “I took him back and then I tried everything to be happy with him because I didn’t want to feel any regret. But I imposed all these rules on him, like the ‘no drinking’
“One night he went out drinking with his friends and I just went ballistic because that was one of the rules. It wasn’t me. I wasn’t happy. I felt a bit like a psycho. All his friends thought I was an idiot.
“You just drive yourself crazy, and I knew it had to end. I loved him but I love me more,”
Binky is now married to new husband Max Darnton and is a mother to two children, four year old India who she shares with ex Josh Patterson and newborn Wolfie who she shares with Max.
