MEET THE MADE IN CHELSEA: MALLORCA NEW FACES:
India Hovenden, 25
Chelsea resident India has lived in the Royal Borough her whole life and rarely ventures out of it... apart from when she’s spending her summer in Mallorca!
Out on a job in Mallorca, India is hiding a big secret. Earlier this year, Julius was outed for having had a mystery woman in his bed the same night he’d been on a date with Tabitha Willett - which at the time, he denied and said they were just friends. The summer trip to Mallorca will unveil the truth and finally allow viewers to put a face to Julius’s mystery woman - in the form of India! Expect fireworks when they come face to face in front of the whole gang.
India’s shock arrival in Mallorca can be seen in episode 1 of Made In Chelsea: Mallorca, where she takes Julius by surprise to demand answers from him over their turbulent past together.
India is currently working as a PA to the Editor in Chief at Vogue, as well as recently being signed by London based modelling agency MOT models.
Four years ago India worked at Fulham spinning studio ‘Ride Republic’, where she met Julius Cowdrey. The pair hit it off and had an undeniable chemistry, which later blossomed into romance, becoming ‘more than friends’ in June 2020. For the past two years, Julius and India have had an on/off relationship which she describes as ‘being boyfriend and girlfriend without the label’.
