Made In Chelsea
"Mini Chelsea"
90s
20 March 2014
UK TV Programmes

There have been some excellent trailers for Made In Chelsea, and this latest does not disappoint. The childish behaviour of the reality 'stars' is here depicted by actual children to brilliant effect by director Molly Manners. In this scenario the group are gathered for Spencer's birthday party, and tots in designer-wear swan about drinking "milkshake-skis" and eating iced rings while eyeing up each other's outfits with envy or disdain.

One of the things that makes this so successful is that you don't even need to know the programme to find the trailer amusing. You guess from the delivery of certain lines that we're witnessing the traits of the people in question - but there's nothing snide about any of it, however shallow or petulant they're shown to be. They're all in on the joke, and by the end you're left with the feeling that arrested emotional development can actually be entertaining sometimes - at a distance, obviously.

There have been some excellent trailers for Made In Chelsea, and the latest does not disappoint. The childish behaviour of the reality 'stars' is here depicted by actual children to brilliant effect. Director Molly Manners makes it a delight from start to finish in this scenario whereby the group are gathered for Spencer's birthday party.

"May I Have a Banana?"

Another excellent instalment of the musical-based trails being used to herald the new series of the structured reality show. This time around, the focus falls on -- wait while we Google -- Spencer... blimey, you should see what we just found at the Daily Mail website: apparently, he was drugged and almost kidnapped when on holiday as a teenager. Hang on, how can you be almost kidnapped?

Made In Chelsea is insufferable guff but this trail heralding a new series is a mighty fine piece of work. The programme's stars have gamely contributed to a short musical-style piece and their apparent lack of embarrassment about the quality of their singing voices just makes it all the better.

Fantastic trail that makes DAVID feel like downing tools and watching the advertised programme right now, even though it's the type that makes him a tad queasy. Characters central to the quasi-reality show are depicted limbering up in preparation for the new series... but not in the way you'd expect.

The fourth series of E4's posh structured reality programme is about to hit the airwaves and anyone watching this trail could be fooled into thinking that it's a well-heeled version of 'Skins'. We hope the lovely people at 4 Creative are able to take it as a massive compliment when we say that this lovely trail is way better than the series it advertises.

"Keep Calm And Party On"

Channel 4's trails have not hit the giddy heights for a while so it's refreshing to see a piece of work brimming with the kind of hedonism we used to associate with Skins. Not the programme, you understand... the magnificent trails that used to herald a new series.
