The newest face to join ITVBe’s The Real Housewives of Cheshire.

Hands-on mum Stacey Forsey will join The Real Housewives of Cheshire for the third season.

Stacey, who is married to Sports Direct chief executive David Forsey, lives in Prestbury, Cheshire with her husband and two children, daughter Grace,11 and son Zac, eight.

The stay at home mum grew up in Worsley, Salford in the bosom of her close-nit working class family.

Stacey studied events at Manchester Metropolitan University, and now consults for Flannels, a company close to her heart. She hosts a charity fashion show at her home every six months to debut the latest collections. These private parties are attended by a host of designers, Cheshire WAGs and housewives, including Coleen Rooney.

The 40-year-old mum is passionate about healthy, home-cooked food following a series of illnesses which started July last year which resulted in multiple food intolerances. Stacey discovered she was intolerant to dairy, wheat, yeast eggs and cashew nuts. Now she thrives on experimenting in the kitchen, discovering new dishes and creating recipes with her family. Keen to keep fit and look good, Stacey attends ‘Barcore,’ a mixture of yoga, pilates and ballet, three times a week.

Art is Stacey’s first love, a hobby which developed when studying A-Levels at school. Stacey didn’t paint for years, putting it on hold while her children were small. Now she’s rediscovered her passion, converting her husband’s office into a studio. Here she undergoes weekly lessons with a tutor from the Art Institute and enjoys creating abstract art for friends’ homes.
