Plane carrying Made in Chelsea crew members crashes into the Pacific Ocean
Four members of the Made in Chelsea crew were rescued from the sea after a plane crash during filming.
It was reported yesterday that the Made in Chelsea production team were involved in a plane crash, and were saved from the sea alive and unharmed after the accident.
The crew were aboard a private jet filming for an upcoming special of the show in Costa Rica, a filming venture that has now been abandoned after the shocking incident. The producers of the show are now focussing on returning their cast and crew home safely.
None of the MIC cast were on board the plane and thankfully the production team involved in the crash, as well as the plane’s pilot, have emerged unscathed.
A spokesperson for E4 gave a statement, saying: “Four of our Production Team on Made in Chelsea, produced by Monkey Kingdom, were involved in a plane crash earlier today (UK time) in a resort in Costa Rica.
“We can confirm that all four people and the pilot are safe and unhurt.
“No cast were onboard.
“We are grateful to the emergency services in Costa Rica for their assistance in this serious incident.”
They added: “We have taken immediate steps to ensure those involved have every support locally and our priority is to return all cast and crew home.
“We ask that the privacy of everyone involved in Made in Chelsea, both on and off screen, is respected over the coming days.”
The Costa Rica special of Made In Chelsea was expected to air at the end of the year, following the series currently on screen now. We hope that the team are recovering okay after the incident and that they have a safe journey back to London.
Made in Chelsea continues Monday at 9pm on E4.
