“There has definitely been a lot of bitchiness and tension going on. No one is really happy,” she explained.
“There are quite a few new girls who are in Alex’s circle of friends that I knew beforehand so I do have some back up.”
Series 9 kicks off on E4 tonight and the new series will show Alex and Nicola as their relationship develops.
After meeting last summer in a nightclub in Naas, the pair have fallen head over heels and have been inseparable.

“I met his parents and he met mine, in the first month. It’s the fastest relationship I’ve ever been in,” she told TV Now magazine.
“It shows something if things progress that quickly.”
However Nicola insisted she has never watched Alex on Made In Chelsea, as she didn’t want to see Alex being portrayed as something he’s not.
“My friends were like ‘you need to watch Made In Chelsea’ and I refused to watch it because I didn’t want to judge Alex on what he was being portrayed as.

“I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but it’s going well and he’s been an absolute gent,” she explained.
“He’s been nothing but respectful so I haven’t had any doubts so far, so fingers crossed.”
