E4

First Episode Teaser – and it looks like it’s gonna be ‘Boss’!

Have you seen E4′s teaser of the first episode? Despite lots of negativity on Twitter and reports of some of the Desperate Scousewives receiving hate mail – over 6,400 people have already watched the trailer – and there have been more ‘likes than ‘dislikes.

The clip starts with an opening shot of the Liver building which then cuts to glamourous Amanda Harrington, looking stunning on the red carpet in a gorgeous gold dress. then we meet Debbie O’Toole getting her scouse brows preened by co-star, Jodie Lundstram.

The shot then cuts to the boys – out on the party scene with Layla and Sam before introducing the ‘girls’ – showing Amanda and Chloe kitted out in velcro rollers with Amanda confessing that she’s “only ever been out with one footballer’.

We then get to see Jodie getting all destructive with the champagne corks when celebrating her return to Liverpool with her family and a quick glimpse of gay couple Chris and Mark looking all cosy.

Finally we are treated to a bit of the drama and tantrums when Elissa and Joe are seen arguing, before Elissa storms off. We then get to see blonde stunner and ex-Miss Liverpool, Debbie looking stunned and rather miffed when she catches Danny Latimer in the throes of a passionate snog with his on-off girlfriend, Sam Woolley.

But the show-stopper and the real enticer to tune in on Monday is Amanda’s rant at Jaiden where she calls him out as a ‘z-lister’ and ‘Perez Hilton’ wannabe before dousing him with her drink.

Make sure you tune in to E4 on Monday at 10pm – or catch it on More E4…or at the very least – get it Sky plussed! We will be tweeting on the hashtag #scousewives throughout the first episode.

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?

Amanda Harrington

Amanda Harrington with Jose BaxterRumours are also rife that other stars of the show include top model and well known Liverpool socialite, Amanda Harrington. 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!
