WITH his privileged upbringing, high-end taste and hailing from the postcode itself – Charlie Brake wouldn’t be out of place on Made In Chelsea.
Here’s all you need to know about the former 2018 Love Islander who could be the villa’s poshest ever resident whose girlfriend Ellie Brown has moved in with him…
Who is Charlie Brake?
Charlie, 23, is a socialite from London’s swanky Chelsea.
Before entering the show, he said he’s different to the rest of the villa because: ” I don’t really have to work so I tend to do what I want, when I want.”
He also said he was worried that if the Islanders clocked on to his privileged upbringing there might be “a lot of jealousy there.”
However, flashy Charlie also boasted that he’s even whisked a girl away skiing on a second date.
He’s described himself as “pretty cut throat” and admitted that: “I have got a reputation to walk over people, even if they are my mates. If I want something, I’ll go for it.”
Why is Charlie so rich?
His grandfather is the founder of food distribution company Brakes.
They sold the firm in 2002 to a US-based private equity firm for £434million.
The deal made the families of the three founding brothers over £80million apiece.
In 2016, the firm changed hands again for a staggering £2.2 billion.
When did Charlie get together with Ellie?
Ellie Brown had the nation behind her when she appeared to be falling for Dr Alex.
But sadly it was not to be as despite finding the A&E doc nice and caring, she felt no sexual attraction for him.
However, this was excellent news for Charlie – when Alex headed off to Casa Amor, Ellie enjoyed her freedom to get to know the socialite.
The pair made their relationship official when Ellie picked Charlie to couple up with her on July 2.
