“Em and I now live together and had a bit of a rough patch over the new season – with pressure from me to work on the beer and ease the lockdown,” Harvey explained.

“The new season is an emotional rollercoaster; I’d say it’s the series of breakups and fixups, with a lot of single mixing as well.

“There is a lot of excitement and drama now that we are all out of lockdown and interactions are allowed and ‘fun’ can be had again. But it was actually really tough because my relationship started just before the first lockdown with Emily and within a few weeks we were living together.

‘We actually only knew lockdown versions of each other! And then it built up to the launch of Prime Time. That was there, in combination with the world opening up again. It was a serious strain on our relationship.’

Prime Time – which Harvey co-launched with fellow cast member Sam Holmes – is the world’s first low-calorie, caffeinated lager aimed at consumers who are conscious of their health but still want to have fun.

Being a world first, the pursuit clearly took up a lot of Harvey’s time.

“I worked 16-hour days and then went out on the weekends and I think Emily felt a lack of attention — so it was definitely a hurdle we overcame,” Harvey explained. ‘She is now more used to my workload and I try to take one evening a week off to stop working.

While the pair’s ups and downs will play out during the new 22nd series of Made In Chelsea, Harvey’s corporate launch will also take place, with the cast attending a party to debut the product.

“We saw a clear demand for a lager that doesn’t cause fatigue or that doesn’t contain all the unnecessary calories of the currently available lagers,” explains Harvey. “Because beer is one of the most widely consumed products in the world, we saw a huge opportunity to challenge the stagnant and saturated beer market with an innovative new lager option.”
