Talk about Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett OBE’s Brand New Weekly Podcast, DishJamie gushed about the ‘amazing combination’ of having his future wife’s parents pay for a big wedding.
He said, ‘I want the big wedding. And her parents pay for it. It’s a great combo. I want this.
“And in Spain, I found out that the groom can actually walk down the aisle first. Because I want that moment when the doors open, and everyone goes… I’m going… This is the best show! Like Zac Efron.’

Elsewhere in the podcast episode, Jamie reflected on his decision to join Made In Chelsea, revealing that he wasn’t starring in the first series because he thought the premise sounded like “the worst in the world.”
He recalled, “So, in the beginning I think it was going to be called Chelsea Girls. And many of my friends signed up for it.
“And it was this reality show about chic kids that sounds like the worst idea in the world and everyone was asked to do it.
“And I was friends with Spencer. And I basically said, ‘This is the worst idea anyone’s ever done. Why would you do it?”
And then they did it for the first series. And I was like, that seems like a lot of fun. So then I went to do it and yes, I did it for ten years.’

Nick Grimshaw clarifies: “So hold on. You didn’t do the first series because you were like, cringe. And when it was a success, you were like, “Sign me up”!?’
Jamie admitted, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I was like, ‘You’re all losers. Why would you do that?”, with Nick interjecting: “And then you think, ‘I’ll just do it for a decade!?”
The owner of Candy Kittens explained, “I was just about to dip my toe in it, just a little test. Yes. And then it was my life for ten years.

“It was one of those things that was like, everyone has a hard life. Everyone, you know, works hard and does different things.
“And then people came home and looked at genteel idiots living off their parents’ money. And drinking champagne, and I was like, ”this can’t be a good idea”.
“But I think what it was, what was interesting, it was that time when reality TV was, everyone loved it because it was an insight into everyone’s life. It was fun and interesting.’
Flashback: Jamie also looked back on how he first hated now BFF Spencer Matthews when they met, and shared how their friendship developed (Pictured on Made In Chelsea in 2011)
Jamie also looked back on how he, now BFF, Spencer Matthews, first “hate” when they first met, and talked about how their friendship developed.
The MIC star recalled: “I was dating a girl. We are about 15 years old and he was in a relationship with her best friend. And I hated him. Because he was, he’s an asshole and he still is. Frankly, Spencer is still a complete asshole.
“And we became friends just because he was so crazy, he was, he was crazy in so many ways. He had that kind of mind that was just so different from all the others.
“And so yeah, we became friends since we were about 15, 16 years old and just never stopped since. And he, and he has none [friends]even he admits it. We started a podcast called Six Degrees of Separation because I said, “Spencer, you need more friends.”
How it is: ‘And I hated him. Because he was, he’s an asshole and he still is. Honestly, Spencer is still a complete asshole,” said Jamie (Pictured in June 2019)
Jamie’s latest podcast interview comes after his fiancée Sophie Habboo accidentally dropped her and Jamie’s wedding date on Good Morning Britain.
When Richard Madeley asked when their wedding would take place, Sophie immediately replied, “May 19th.”
A shocked Jamie responded by saying, ‘I can’t believe you just did that! You told me on the podcast that I wanted to say the date and now you just said…”
Richard filled in as a joke: ‘The wedding is off!’ to which Jamie joked, ‘We’re over, we’re over!’
Dish, the new Waitrose & Partners podcast, hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett, is now available on all podcast providers.
