Chelsea was introduced in the first episode of series five, meeting Christine Quinn at an open house in the Hollywood Hills.

Whilst her designer wardrobe and platform heels caught Christine’s eye, it was her lilting accent that caught the attention of viewers.

As she explained to Christine how she visited LA and fell in love with her husband Jeff in 2015, some fans of the show were busy tweeting about her accent, with one quipping: ‘I’ve taken a tour around the world listening to Chelsea’s accent.’

Another mused: ‘I have never heard a London-Valley girl accent before.’

‘Chelsea is the girl who studied abroad for a semester and came back with an accent,’ joked another viewer.

Fellow Brits were equally confused, with one tweeting: ‘The accent is all over the place. Post English to Essex in an instant.’

Others though pointed out that Chelsea has moved countries and ‘it sounds like an American and London accent blended to me.’

Chelsea herself has defended herself, joking that even she was shocked by what she heard when she watched herself back on the show over the weekend.  

Writing on Twitter on Sunday, she joked: ‘If you think you’re irritated with my accent, Imagine me? I almost fainted listening to myself back.

‘You mean to tell me this is how I sound? WooooooooOOooW,’ she posted.

Chelsea also posted a video declaring she is ‘a London girl at heart,’ as she explained her accent is down to her love of travel.

‘I’ve lived in four countries in my short 29 years of life. I’ve lived in London, I’ve lived in Switzerland, I lived in New Jersey and I now live in Los Angeles so my accent is a mish mosh of all the places I’ve lived but I’m a London girl at heart,’ she said.
