Mark-Francis Vandelli thinks Christmas trees are "tacky".

The "Made in Chelsea" star insists he won't be having a decorated fir in his home over the festive season because they should only be enjoyed by children.

He said: "I don't put a Christmas tree up because I find that it is something mostly for children. I think it's tacky. I put up garlands."

Mark-Francis has received a number of "terrible" Christmas gifts over the years, but doesn't hold it against the recipients as he only gets offended if he's been given a "recycled" present.

He said: "I've been given so many terrible gifts but thankfully one doesn't judge one's friends by the gifts they give. Recycled gifts are the ones that offend.

"Say if someone accidentally gives you Chanel No. 5 as a gift because someone gave it to them but they don't want to wear it - that is offensive."

Mark- who previously took part in "The Jump" - was approached by bosses of "Celebrity Big Brother" about taking part in the forthcoming series next year, but he has admitted he'd never agree to it because he doesn't think the house would be suitable.

Asked if he'd go on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!", he said: "I would not even open an email that suggested anything like that.

"Even today, my agent sent me an email about "Celebrity Big Brother". Is anyone going to be doing my hair in this house? No? Then no."

Meanwhile, when he isn't working, he likes to go shopping for vintage furniture.

Asked what he spends his money on, he said: "Objects and furniture from the 18th century. Mostly French but sometimes Italian.

"I think the environment you surround yourself with is very important, so I try to curate that. And I love watches and jewellery."
