The Real Housewives of Cheshire are back our screens for a new series tonight (Monday, September 5) - and the ladies promise even more drama, glamour and rows as opinions and emotions run high.

Cheshire Housewives - now in it’s fourth series - has fans as far away as Dallas, New York and California who tweet about their love for the show.

We’ll pick up from where things left off at the end of the third series, which saw WAGs Dawn Ward and Leanne Brown have a falling out over Leanne’s birthday trip to Paris.

Dawn told us: “There is even more glamour and all eight of us have already outdone the last series.”

Because the reality show follows every aspect of their glamorous lives we’ll see Tanya’s baby shower and be introduced to her newborn baby Ralphi, who arrived into the world just two weeks ago.

Swedish supermodel Missé Beqiri’s split from her former Manchester United footballer husband Anders Lindegaard will also feature.

We’re told that the return of the ITVBe reality show, starring Ampika, Dawn, Leanne, Missé and Tanya, Lauren Simon, Seema Malhotra, the founder of fashion label Forever Unique and Stacey Forsey, the wife of Sports Direct chief executive David Forsey, is also set to deliver more comedy moments - a relief for fans still recovering from that very tense reunion show which ended the third series.

Here’s the lowdown on what to expect ...

Lauren is back

Lauren, who had an emotional time in the last series when she announced her split from husband Paul, has been launching her own line in perfumes and candles.

And keeping busy has helped.

She said: “From being in such a bad place working has saved me. I’ve got over and got through it.

“There has been tears but I’m in a much better place now. I hope that people will see the old Lauren is back.”

Another holiday

They will all go on a secret trip for Misse’s 30th birthday, apart from Tanya who has just had a baby.

This time they won’t be going to Paris. And the ladies joke that they will be travelling by easyJet after the epic falling-out over who got to travel in the private jet to Paris in the last series.
