The Real Housewives of Cheshire welcomes new housewife Leilani Dowding as the series returns to ITVBe this autumn

The Real Housewives of Cheshire is set to return to our screens this autumn and have added former Page 3 model and Miss Great Britain Leilani Dowding to the line up.

Leilani, 39, has left Hollywood with her guitarist boyfriend Billy Duffy, 58, to settle down in the suburbs of Cheshire and is now joining current housewives Dawn Ward, Tanya Bardsley, Rachel Lugo and others on the reality show.

Former model Leilani said: “After 15 years of living in LA, my partner Billy Duffy and I decided to move back to the UK.

“We’ve decided to make Cheshire our home and we’re so excited to be back. When the opportunity arose to join The Real Housewives of Cheshire, I thought it would be so much fun, I jumped at the chance!”

As well as landing a job on the reality show, Leilani now owns her own luxury clothing line, LeiLuna Collection, which includes dresses, tops and active-wear.

Leilani’s boyfriend, Billy Duffy, also has his own claim to fame, as he is the lead guitarist of The Cult.

Billy regularly tours the world with the band, but is now based back near his hometown of Manchester.

Confirming the news on Instagram, Leilani said: “It’s true, I’m so excited to be part of the #realhousewivesofcheshire”.

She also revealed the cast have already started filming by sharing a selfie castmates Hanna Miraftab and Ester Dee.

Executive producer of the show, Mike Swindells, said: “It is our pleasure to welcome a new face to Cheshire and we couldn’t be happier that Leilani will be joining the ladies this series.

“As ever with the Housewives, we’ll see their relationships tested but we will also witness new, and unlikely, friendships being formed.

Series 10 promises to deliver all the twists and turns that viewers have come to expect and the Housewives will be sure to shake things up!”

This series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire is set to be filled with action, with Hanna preparing her big day and Ester going international with her modelling career.

An air date for the 10th series is yet to be confirmed but we can expect the drama to commence in autumn on ITVBe.

This comes as the teaser trailers for the Great British Bake Off and Peaky Blinders season five were released this week.
