Made in Chelsea- who are the real victims?

Hot off its BAFTA award, Made in Chelsea or ‘MIC’ as its fans have named the high-profile Channel 4 show, have undeniably made a huge name for themselves. A far cry from the ‘staged’ reviews of its early pilot, it now has a huge following. You can be sure that every Monday evening, Twitter will be ablaze with the trials and tribulations of the privileged class of the Chelsea heirs and heiresses.

The Enactus Nationals

In the time leading up to the Enactus Nationals, I looked forward to it with a strange sense of apprehension.

The clips feature high-fives and hugs, tears and turbulence – but something was not quite right. Before I go any further, you’re probably wondering what the Nationals are, and more to the point; what is Enactus?
