The Real Housewives of Cheshire return to our screens bringing, fun, drama, and looking more fabulous than ever, as well as being joined by a brand-new Housewife, and the return of an old favourite!
Before series 11 launches Femalefirst took the opportunity to have a chat with the Housewives themselves.
First up we spent some time with Seema – here’s what she had to say:
You’re back for another season! What should audiences expect from you this time round?
I am back again – every season I say I am not going to come back and then I do again! For me, I love the show. I have literally known most of them for years and I feel that everything about this show is me. It is my life. I am glad to be back. What you should expect? I think people think ‘Seema sits on the fence and doesn’t have an opinion’…I think this series people will see that I can be really opinionated and fun. It is just in our group, we have a lot of ladies in our group and if someone is just screaming and shouting, I will just back off. But I think you see a different side to me this series – but it is a good side! You will see me be a bit more vocal.
What sort of drama or alliances should we be looking out for in Season 11?
Without giving too much away. From day dot of filming, the drama started! Right from the beginning, there are drops of drama that will keep happening throughout. In terms of alliances, I would say that long-term friendships that you wouldn’t think would erupt, have! You wouldn’t expect it. I can’t say too much so you will have to watch to find out!
Have there been any shifts in alliances you can tell us a little bit about?
I think we saw towards the end of last series certain friendships were developing which have continued through this series – you wouldn’t necessarily have thought that! This is the beauty of this show; our friendships are always evolving!
What did you make of Nicole when she joined the show?
The moment she walked in, I instantly knew I was going to like this woman. She fitted in from day one. She is always herself and, what I really like about her is, she is a very fair woman. I don’t know if this is due to her business background and she is used to working with lots of people, but she is very fair but also a very strong and powerful woman. I know that if she had a strong opinion, she is not scared to say it! You will see throughout the series, from the moment I met her, I fell in love with her! I also like that she listens to reason, not just going in for the kill, but she will stick by what she says! She has been a brilliant addition to the show.
We’ll see you hoping to expand your business this season – what should we expect from that?
Forever Unique is expanding internationally, hence why I take all of the ladies to Greece. Business abroad! Basically, I have opened a showroom in Athens, and I wanted to take all the girls over to see how hard I have worked. We do well in the UK but internationally we have started to expand and now have showrooms in the likes of Portugal, Spain, Atlanta and the Middle East. The Athens showroom was the most recent addition. All the girls are my friends, so I wanted them there. They were so proud, and I am so proud of them. My collection is based on these women after all! Forever Unique is based on glamourous women that are bold, strong and want to walk into a room and be noticed. This is what my friends are!
The Real Housewives of Cheshire launches Monday 20th April at 9pm on ITVBe’
