CZECH-born Ester Dee was catapulted to fame when she joined ITVBe’s The Real Housewives of Cheshire and now she’s back for season six.
The reality star certainly made an impact in the previous series of the show. Here’s everything you need to know about her…
Who is Ester Dee?
The 32-year-old was born in the Czech Republic but is currently living in Macclesfield, Cheshire.
In 2003, Ester moved to England with just £40 in her pocket and dreams to start a new life.
She worked as an au pair in London, before getting a taste for the luxury lifestyle.

There has been a LOT of controversy about Ester’s relationship status since she joined the show.
She made her TV debut posing as the fiancee of millionaire property developer Rob Lloyd.
However, the Czech’s lavish lifestyle was actually funded by millionaire John Temple, who she wed in 2015.
Unsuspecting John, 61, blew £5,000 on a ring for Ester after she called him from Dubai.
He had no idea she had flown to the billionaire’s playground to film a special for the show, after she kept him in the dark about the role.
She also hid from John that Lloyd — who was reported to have debts of £26million — was the father of her daughter, telling him the child was his.
Ester told her co-stars on the show; “I don’t cheat on Rob, I cheat WITH Rob”.
The Sun exclusively revealed in July that Ester had reconciled with her husband after he bought her a Porsche.
But lifting the lid on the scandal on Saturday night she revealed the couple now plan to renew their vows after John showered her with a barrage of expensive gifts.
She told the Sun on Sunday: “This has been a learning curve for us, but I know I’m very lucky to have John in my life. He’s very special.”

Dawn Ward, wife of retired footballer Ashley, returns for the sixth series having been one of the original cast members.
Tanya Bardsley, who has also been in the show since the very first episode and is married to Stoke City footballer Phil Bardsley, also returns.
