Meet Tom Dolemore: The property developer who is dating Issy from Made in Chelsea

He’s been on the show before, and has dated Habbs and Ekin-Su!

It’s official: Issy from Made in Chelsea has a new boyfriend. As the show starts a new season, we can move away from her heart being broken by Miles, as she’s moved on and is now in a relationship.

Earlier this year, Issy went official with a guy called Tom Dolemore – who works in property, has loads of famous exes and hangs out with all the MIC cast – they really do keep their social circles small.

Here’s everything you need to know about Tom Dolemore, who Made in Chelsea newbie Issy has confirmed is her new boyfriend.

In the last couple of seasons of Made in Chelsea, we’ve seen Issy join the show, have her heart broken by Miles, and then briefly have a fling with Harvey. She’s not exactly been lucky in love, but all that looks to be changing as she’s now official with someone new.

Confirming she’s got a new boyf, Issy posted a picture of a card she got on Valentines’ Day – tagging Tom. She’s since shared a picture of them, and they’ve both been commenting all over each other’s posts.

It’s thought Tom and Issy have been dating for a while now, as they were spotted together in Barbados at the start of the year.

Tom is 32, and a property developer

Tom is a bit older than Issy, who is 21, as he’s aged 32. He’s definitely used to living it up, working as a  co-director of a housing company. He builds houses in and around Bedford and Cambridge.

Being the boyfriend of Issy isn’t the first time Tom has found himself in the Made in Chelsea world – he’s been on the show before! He was introduced in series 16, episode one – back in 2018. He came onto the show as a friend of Emily Blackwell’s. It’s not clear if he’ll be heading back to Kings’ Road in new episodes, but we can hope!

He has a number of famous exes

Before Issy, Tom has had a very colourful dating history. When he joined Made in Chelsea, he ended up dating Sophie “Habbs” Habboo for a bit, and he’s also dated previous Love Island winner, Ekin-Su. He also has old Instagram pictures of him cuddled up on a flight with Hollyoaks star, Jorgie Porter.

Ekin-Su reportedly went on a number of dates with Tom before she went in the 2022 villa. A source told The Sun: “Tom and Ekin dated for a few months late last year, they are both fun-loving, up for a laugh and enjoy a night out. It fizzled out before she applied for the Love Island, but they had a great time together.”

Tom is clearly a very well-connected man

Just a quick look on Tom’s Instagram and you can see his social circle contains a whole host of recognisable faces – he’s mates with loads of celebs. He’s often hanging out with Spencer Morgan, and his dad Piers, Gary Lineker’s son George, Conor Maynard, and Love Island star, Samira Mighty.
