Desperate Scousewives has been talked about all over the city for weeks now, and not for all the right reasons... even though nobody has actually seen any of the footage yet.
E4 is due to screen the first episode of its 'The Only Way is Essex'-style reality show on November 28th but the cast was kept a mystery by TV channel E4 until now.
The line-up for the Liverpool-based programme will star 15 of the city’s most outrageous girls and boys and it is set to take over from TOWIE as the nation’s favourite guilty pleasure.
Leader of the cast is Liverpool-born model, 30-year-old
Amanda Harrington, who was once named the ultimate
WAG wannabe, but has now sworn off footballers for life.
Following her is Jodie Lundstram, who is the self-styled
"liveliest Liver Bird in Liverpool", along with Amanda’s best
friend and Abbey Crouch’s cousin, 21-year-old Chloe
Also amongst the strong fleet of girls are best friends, Irish
psychology student and self-proclaimed man eater Layla
Flaherty, plus Kate Middleton look-a-like Samantha Woolley.
Sisters Gill and Debbie O’Toole and journalist Elissa
Corrigan are also set to star in the new show.
No reality TV show is complete without its fleet of
good-looking men fighting for the girls' attention, and
this one is certainly no different.
Set to lead the hunks is easy-on-the-eye Welsh-born club
promoter and gym addict Joe McMahon and "top Scouser"
and funny man Danny Latimer 27, aka Danny Bobby.
London-born nightclub owner George Panayiotou is also
starring in the show alongside Jaiden Michael, the showbiz
Last, but certainly not least, are part-time "butler in the buff", and
Joe’s best friend, Adam Ramsey, and the show's perfect couple
and glam team, Chris and Mark Johnson-White.
