SHE is usually found living the champagne lifestyle in one London's more luxurious postcodes.

So it was perhaps surprising to see Made in Chelsea star Alexandra 'Binky' Felstead pay a visit to a Southampton shopping to launch a new dining initiative.

Alexandra who is known as Binky signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans of the show in the food court in West Quay as part of their Dine till Nine' which will see food outlets stay open till 9pm.

The 23-year-old fashion and lifestyle blogger has been a central part of the latest series with her stormy relationship with Alex Mytton being played out on the Channel Four show.

Her visit to Southampton comes in the same month where her book called 'Being Binky my life in Chelsea' has been released.

While tucking into a dinner at Nandos, the well spoken star who is followed by more than 650,000 people on Twitter, said: “I like Southampton and. I also love the Isle of Wight and I used to regularly visit to see an ex-boyfriend.”

She added that she was a fan of Dine till Nine and said: “After a long day's shopping it is good for relaxing to have a meal. Having the option to eat late is also good if people want to go on clubbing and get some grub beforehand.”

Binky added that she is looking forward to flying out to New York to be part of a Made in Chelsea spin-off series in the summer.
