NEWS: The Real Housewives of Cheshire returns to ITVBe this Autumn
It’s never quiet in Cheshire; The Real Housewives are back with a bang… and two new faces.
The Real Housewives of Cheshire and their glamorous lifestyles are returning for a brand new series filled with highs, lows and a lot of champagne. The 10x60 series, plus the famous reunion show, will launch in the Autumn on ITVBe.
Dawn Ward, Tanya Bardsley, Lauren Simon, Rachel Lugo, Ester Dohnalová and Seema Malhotra will all return to the show as Housewives, with Stacey Forsey, Nermina Pieters-Mekic and Christine McGuiness featuring as guests Housewives. Two new Housewives will also join the Cheshire clique: Perla Barton and Hanna Miraftab.
Latino vegan guru Perla, is married to self-made millionaire Jonathan. The pair, along with their children from previous relationships and their twelve year-old daughter together, live in a bespoke Wilmslow mansion where Perla tutors the Cheshire gliteratti in Yoga. Perla isn’t afraid of being brutal with the truth, believing the best way to deliver it is with a smile on your face… but how will that go down with the other Housewives?
Hanna, who describes herself as an alpha female, grew up in Bolton where she has carved a career as a successful dentist. Her fiancé Martin is part of the Cheshire elite and is a cosmetic surgeon with clinics in Hale and Palma; he also performed fellow Housewife Lauren’s thread facial lift in Series 7. The Iranian beauty prides herself on being successful, self-sufficient and isn’t impressed with women marrying for money.
It’s never quiet in Cheshire and with the two new arrivals, new relationships are formed, tensions arise and there are laughs aplenty.
Rachel is left confused when husband John suddenly reveals that he’s been taking secret yoga lessons without her knowing whilst Ester is immediately drawn to one of the new girls, jeopardising old friendships.
Putting family first, Dawn and Ashley attempt to come to terms with his parents health issues and Tanya supports her daughter as she follows in her footsteps and embarks on a modelling career.
Seema has an idea that should bring all of the girls together, but with issues in the group, could it all backfire?
The Real Housewives of Cheshire is made by BAFTA-winning producers Monkey (an NBCUniversal International Studios company). The series is executive produced by David Granger and Mike Swindells for Monkey. The series has been recommissioned by Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions and Amanda Stavri, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment.
Paul Mortimer, ITV's Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions said:
“ITVBe is all about big, aspirational characters and in the The Real Housewives of Cheshire we have some of the most amazing ladies on television. It is a pleasure for us to welcome our Housewives back for another compelling series filled with drama, fun and, of course, glamour”.
Mike Swindells, Executive Producer, Monkey said:
“Viewers may have thought that the dynamics in Cheshire were fairly established… well think again. The arrival of Perla and Hanna has caused a huge shake-up, so seemingly solid relationships and friendships are tested. It’s Cheshire like you’ve never seen it before.”
