Made in Chelsea: James and Maeva ENGAGED weeks after he turned down her marriage proposal

James brutally rejected his girlfriend but he's made up for it now!

Maeva and James have a very long history on Made in Chelsea, with tensions rising between the pair as Maeva grew impatient waiting for James to propose.

However, in an episode earlier this month (May 2), Maeva took matters in to her own hands and decided to ask him herself.

So are the pair still together?

Here’s what we know.

After years of waiting for James to propose, Maeva finally decided that she was going to pop the question herself.

If anyone was going to do it, it’s Maeva!

Speaking to her friend Emily, she revealed: “Well, I think I’m going to have to do it. I’m gonna have to propose to James.

“Because basically he doesn’t have the balls to do it. I’ve got the balls to do it.”

The reality star planned to propose on a countryside holiday in front of her whole friendship group.

Well, I think I’m going to have to do it. I’m gonna have to propose to James.

She even bought a ring ahead of her proposal.

However, when she finally got down on one knee and proposed on Monday, James’ response took her by surprise.

James heartbreakingly said: “I can’t say yes, this is silly.”

He then proceeded to say: “Never in a million years would I let you propose to me. Why did you think that was a good idea?”


James’ jaw dropping rejection left Maeva feeling humiliated and she stormed off in tears.

A source told Daily Mail: “This is everything Maeva has ever wanted.

Being engaged to the man of my dreams is amazing.

“She has dreamed of being proposed to since she was a young girl and finally it became a reality last month when James asked her to marry him in Rome.

“Marriage is the ultimate commitment, now they’re engaged Maeva feels reassured and excited about their future, and anything that’s happened before can be forgiven,” surely alluding to his drunken nightclub kiss with another woman.

The couple themselves spoke to Hello to confirm the engagement.

Maeva said: “I can’t believe I am actually engaged!”

“Being engaged to the man of my dreams is amazing. It’s a different love, it’s stronger, it’s deeper. I feel safe.”
