Macc mum has joined Real Housewives

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER - DIANNE BOURNE

THE Real Housewives of Cheshire has re­turned to our screens and is big­ger, brighter and with even more bit­ter feuds than be­fore – with a new ‘house­wife’ from Mac­cles­field join­ing the ranks.

The doc­u­men­tary se­ries, which fol­lows the glam­orous lives of WAGs and busi­ness­women liv­ing in the ‘ Golden Tri­an­gle’ – Prest­bury, Wilm­slow and Alder­ley Edge – re­turned to ITVBe for a fifth se­ries on Mon­day.

The se­ries, which fea­tures Prest­bury’s Leanne Brown and Tanya Bard­s­ley has now wel­comed Mac­cles­field’s Es­ter Dee to the mix.

Es­ter, who hails from the Czech Repub­lic, says she has al­ready set­tled into her new home and loves to drive around in her Rolls Royce to “check out the com­pe­ti­tion” in Wilm­slow and Hale, has a col­lec­tion of 180 hand­bags and 500 pairs of shoes – but says she keeps them all in boxes for fear of dam­ag­ing any of them.

Es­ter said: “When peo­ple see a nice car, they as­sume it’s go­ing to be a man driv­ing, so it’s re­fresh­ing if you get a woman in there.

“I love Cheshire that way. It’s the cars, it’s the flash, it’s the fash­ion. I love go­ing out in Wilm­slow in my Rolls Royce be­cause you get no­ticed.

“If you make sure you look nice, peo­ple re­spond nice, they talk to you nicely, you get a bet­ter table.

“Cheshire is quite pre­ten­tious in a way. It’s a good hon­ey­pot place. Com­pared to Lon­don it’s got big­ger money, big­ger places. Cheshire is bril­liant for foot­ball play­ers, big game play­ers. If you want to do it big, move to Cheshire.”

The glam­orous full-time mum, 32, is mar­ried to Rob Lloyd, who en­joyed TV fame him­self when he ap­peared on Chan­nel 4’s The Se­cret Mil­lion­aire in 2009.

Es­ter came to Eng­land in 2003 as an au pair, and met Rob, 53, in 2008.

The cou­ple be­came and item in 2012 and have a two-year-old daugh­ter, Ber­tie, to­gether.

Rob pro­posed to Es­ter with a replica of Princess Diana’s en­gage­ment ring by the canal in Ch­ester, where they had pre­vi­ously lived to­gether. But they’ve since moved to a Ge­or­gian man­sion in Mac­cles­field, to al­low room for Es­ter’s mother Zdenka, 49, to move in to help look af­ter Ber­tie.

Es­ter added: “I’m a full time mother and house­wife. It’s a very hard job, my nails get dirty some­times. I find it amaz­ing the other girls run so many busi­nesses and ex­er­cise, I don’t know how they do it. I have a cleaner at home.”

The Real Housewives of Cheshire is on ITVBe on Mon­days at 10pm.
