Amanda Harrington’s Gold Dress

We had Amanda confirm that the dress she wore for the promo shots for Desperate Scousewives. We’ve had a lot of interest in this dress – the one she wore at the JuiceFM Style Awards where we saw her presenting an award.

The sparkly gold sequinned tutu halterneck dress is by Miss Francesca Couture and although they only have an information website at the moment, they have confirmed that they are looking to have an online store very soon. We will keep you updated. You can still contact Francesca via the website and order the dress, but you will need to be quick if you want it in time for Christmas as demand is extremely high at the moment.

EXCLUSIVE Desperate Scousewives On Location Pics

As we are now on countdown to the first ever episode of Desperate Scousewives which is set to hit our screens on Monday, we thought we would give you a sneaky peek of our exclusive on-location photos from the set.

Last Saturday saw the cast and crew hit one of Liverpool’s most popular nightspots, Circo – frequented by many celebs, footballers and WAGS. Their VIP list includes Alex Curran, Jennifer Ellison, Tulisa from N-Dubz and Liverpool ace, Jamie Carragher.

But Saturday saw Amanda Harrington and the other Scousewives take centre stage at the club. As well as filming for the show, they were believed to be shooting promotional photos for the show.

Amanda looked stunning in a gorgeous, floaty white babydoll dress featuring long chiffon sleeves and black sash detail.

We are now even more looking forward to Monday’s show!

City Divided as Scousewives Receive Hate Mail

Rumours are rife that selected members of the recently announced cast have been receiving hate mail following recent promotions of the show.

The show’s title seems to have provoked an emotional response with some of the locals – one of which is abuse by mail. Some Liverpudlians are saying the show’s title is a sham as the gorgeous girls in the show clearly are not desperate and others are upset that some of the cast are not real Scousers. Layla is originally from Ireland and Joe is originally from Wales.

Liverpool residents - particularly those born and bred in Merseyside are concerned that the show will ridicule their beloved city and turn it into a national joke. They find this particularly difficult to swallow after they city has worked so hard in previous years to establish itself as a city of culture.

Amanda Harrington said

“There are mixed emotions in Liverpool. Half the people are saying they can’t wait for it and half are saying it’s going to embarrass the city. People don’t want to say that they are excited about it.

“We want to show that Liverpool people have a lot more to them than all the misconceptions and stereotypes. We’re not all airheads. We can laugh at ourselves and love a joke, but we have a caring side, too.”

What do you think of the show’s title? Do you think it will make Liverpool a laughing stock?

Move over TOWIE – Liverpool answers back with Desperate Scousewives

Channel 4′s, E4 launches new reality TV series Desperate Scousewives

Keen to capitalise on the wave of sucessful reality TV shows like The Only Way is Essex, Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea, Channel 4 have announced a brand new docu-soap following the lives of a selection of Liverpudlian ladies in their quest to bag themselves their perfect (read: rich) man. Ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding for the ‘Desperate Scousewives’

Liverpool is well known for its glitzy nightlife and culture. This new series on E4, promises to wow viewers with the antics of the scouse socialites. Executive producer Michael Massey claims that the series will feature ‘some fantastic characters with fascinating lives and great storylines’, whilst Channel 4′s Kate Teckman promises ‘the characters are bigger and the dresses are shorter’.

Jodie Lundstram outside Liverpool Lime StreetJodie Lundstram

Filming for the working title ‘Desperate Scousewives’ got underway outside Liverpool Lime Street where one of the first stars of the show was unveiled. Bursting onto the steps outside the station, yelling “Liverpool…I’m back!”, Jodie Lundstram – a relatively unknown Merseyside make-up artist baffled passers by. Kitted out in a vibrant Missoni dress, fuschia pink jacket and chunky heels whilst hauling a rather large bright pink suitcase, it’s easy to see that she attracted a lot of attention. It is reported that she splits her time between Liverpool and London. Her brother is on Everton Football reserves squad – Could this prove useful for our wannabe WAG in terms of introductions?

Media reports would suggest that Amanda is a seasoned pro on the WAG circuit. She’s been romantically linked with footballing bad boy, Joey Barton back in 2007 which she denies and more recently Everton ace Jose Baxter…we reckon it’s all in the initials…unlucky John Terry – so near, yet so far!

Chloe Cummings

Another model predicted to take the spotlight on the new show Chloe Cummings – cousin of Abbey Clancy who married former Liverpool FC striker, Peter Crouch earlier this year. Abbey is said to be disgruntled by Chloe’s decision to take part in the series as she feels the show will play up to the stereotypical idea that every Liverpool girls wants to hook up with a footballer and live the WAG lifestyle. She understandably doesn’t want the rest of her family to be tarnished with this image or made a laughing stock.

Chloe has appeared in Britain’s Next Top Model and she insists that she’s not desperate to score herself a footballer husband and has no aspirations to be a WAG. She simply wants to carve out a successful career as a model in her own right.

The show is set to air in December. Will it lift the lid on Liverpool’s so-say ‘WAG culture’? We certainly hope so! We are waiting with baited breath to see how it’s done, ladies!
