Series 17 of the hit reality show launches on ITVBe and ITVX on Monday 25th March 9pm

Seema Malhotra, Lauren Simon, Lystra Adams, Sheena Lynch, Rachel Lugo and Nicole Sealey return for another fabulous series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire. They are joined by new cast members Paige and Ell, who are set to make this series one of the most glamorous yet.

The Housewives head to the Lake District for a tranquil trip that takes a turn, as friendships are challenged and some new personalities cause a stir. Baby news could be the tonic that everyone needs though, as Paige has a big announcement that could bring the girls back together again. But the question is… where does Lauren swan off to? Only Big Brother knows...

Hanna Kinsella, Tanya Bardsley and Ampika Pickston will return as a guest Housewives. In 2015, Tanya Bardsley burst onto our screens as one of the original cast members of The Real Housewives of Cheshire. Businesswoman Ampika Pickston, who shot to fame on the show from 2015 to 2017, is making her own comeback after seven years away and a brief appearance in The Real Housewives of Cheshire: Pride.

Ell makes her debut this series and is part of the new generation of Cheshire socialites, having grown up in the infamous Golden Triangle. An influencer, model, and fashionista, Ell boasts close to half a million followers on Instagram and is part of a blended family, as step mum to her partner’s son.

Paige is back and now as a full time Housewife! Not only is she expanding her business, and buying a new house, but she is also expecting her first baby!

The 12x60’ series will once again be followed by the Reunion show, hosted by number one #RHOCheshire fan and TV presenter Brian Dowling. The Real Housewives of Cheshire is produced by Monkey, which is part of Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. Natasha Bardusco is Executive Producer for Monkey.
