Viewers were treated to a fresh dose of drama, awkward silences and catty exchanges, and judging by the television ratings — which pulled in a record high of 808,000 viewers — and the frantic tweeting, the show's first episode was well worth the wait.
Read on to find out what we learned from episode two...

1) Alex has got the guilty face
We’ve been on the edge of our seats wondering whether Alex Mytton cheated on Binky, real name Alexandra Felstead, and in an interview with HELLO! Online earlier that day she even admitted it was tough going through relationship troubles on camera.
But in the second episode of the reality show, apparently it became even more obvious that he may have been unfaithful. He’s gone out of his way to confess his love for her but @HELLOmag followers are clearly not convinced he’s been a good boy, thanks to his body language telling all.
Awwwwwwww @BinkyFelstead don't cry YOUR WORTH A MILLION OF THEM CHAVVY CLUB GIRLS. BINKS GOT CLASS😘💚— Rebecca Sweeney (@RSweeneyx) April 14, 2014
2) Mark Francis won’t be touched
Ever feel sick to your stomach when you’re walking down London’s Kings Road and spot a jogger? Mark Francis can empathise. The Kensington and Chelsea resident went on a hilarious rant while spending time doing some light exercise at the gym.
Not only does seeing people get sweaty outdoors make him want to barf, but apparently the star isn’t too good with his P.E. kit either, asking: "What are bicycle shorts?" Notice how perfectly co-ordinated he and Victoria Baker Harber were styled out in Marks and Spencer attire?
Mark Francis put those legs away. There's a reason you don't wear shorts.— Louise Thompson (@LouiseAThompson) April 14, 2014
3) Lucy’s Watson is not good on dates
HELLO! Online blogger Lucy has had to deal with a fair few naughty men in her time, but she’s no angel herself admittedly. During the show she tweeted that her ex shouldn’t be jealous of who she was out on a date with as she Binky, Alex and his pal dined out. Jamie meanwhile enjoyed a singles dinner with the likes of Louise and Rosie Fortescue.

Don't think he should be that jealous of my date haha— Lucy Watson (@imLucyWatson) April 14, 2014
4) Louise Thompson has a funny nickname
What’s a P.O.R.G. you say? Just ask Spencer and he’ll tell you Louise is a Person Of Restricted Growth. Spenny spilled his nickname for her while on the phone accepting an invite to her singles dinner party, leaving on-and-off flame Emma Miller baffled at the label.
P.o.r.g. Should be illegal!— Louise Thompson (@LouiseAThompson) April 14, 2014
Let's get porg trending. Person of restricted growth.— Louise Thompson (@LouiseAThompson) April 14, 2014
5) Emma is on par with Caggie
We all know Caggie Dunlop is the woman who will always have Spencer’s heart. Apparently Emma and Louise both know and haven’t really got a problem with competing to tear his attention away.
When Spencer left Emma to fend for herself at Louise’s place, it emerged he hadn’t quite confessed his love for her but admitted Emma and Caggie were the girls who knew him best. It prompted Louise to agree how besotted their mutual ex Spencer can get with Caggie, who has now left the show.
