B: How’s life after Made In Chelsea?
H: Better actually, yeh I’m kind of happy not to have film crews around me all the time.
B: I can imagine that would be pretty intense…
H: It’s quite intense, you lose a lot of control over the stuff that you do. You get told to be here and told to do this…
B: I’ve always wondered how that works because there are a lot of awkward encounters that just seem to happen on Made In Chelsea…
H: I don’t want to give away too much of how it’s made out of respect for the fact that there’s people still doing it, but I think one day when they stop making these kind of shows people will be interested to see how it all works.
B: Last time we saw you on Made In Chelsea you were pretty settled down, can you say anything about what’s going on in your love life?
H: I’m super happy, I celebrated my one year anniversary a few days ago, I’m a very happy man.
B: So, as someone who’s never got lower than an A in any exam, you’re the wise guy on Made In Chelsea. Do you have any advice for first years at university?
H: I mean, I went to university in London, I had no idea of this kind of student life. I would go and visit my friends in Bristol and Leeds and come up here, so whenever I would have a good student night out it would be here. My student life sucked compared to this, I’d trade everything for this (pointing to the club around).
B: For students the one limiting thing on their lifestyles can often be money, but obviously that wasn’t a problem for you, did you have any limits?
H: Well, my university had no student nights, so I would put on my own student nights, that’s how I made money at university, then I opened a nightclub from that, and then I opened a restaurant, then I got onto Made In Chelsea. I’d say the best way to enjoy your student life is to start your own night. If you’ve got a lot of friends and you can organise a party then make money out of it. It’s the best way to finance your whole university life.
B: We’re currently touring the whole of England to find the best student city, you must have toured a lot…
H: I think I’ve been everywhere!
B: Outside of London what would you say is the best party city in the UK?
H: Sheffield, this is the fourth time I’ve been here, I’ve never had a bad night here. Bournemouth, Bournemouth is f***ing awesome, there’s just something about Bournemouth. People are chilled there, I think it’s because it’s beside the sea, everyone’s just kind of relaxed and less stressed. I’m going to Manchester again on Friday, I had a great night there my first night there.
B: What about Leeds? I have a soft spot for Leeds as it was my uni town…
H: My memories from Leeds, age 21/22 are just… near death, they get that f*cked up there, it’s really quite intense.
