Made in Chelsea star Charlie Mills apologises for ‘tasteless’ rape joke
Made in Chelsea star Charlie Mills has apologised after making ‘tasteless’ rape joke while on a night out in London.
The 25-year-old uploaded a drunken video to his Instagram story, including himself and two friends. In the video he was in the back of a taxi with a female friend and British polo player Josh Cork. The clip sees the banking heir introduce Josh, followed by showing the young woman in their company.
While the camera panned on to her, Mills said: “This is our sexy b**ch who we are going to f****** rape tonight.”

Mills has since spoken to The Sun, making a grovelling apology for the videos. He said: “I made a tasteless comment. What I said was unacceptable, and I sincerely apologise for the offence caused by my childish and insensitive remark.”
