The Real Housewives Of Scotland Is Reportedly In The Works At ITVBe!

The Real Housewives franchise is expanding in the UK as the popular reality franchise is heading to Scotland following the success of The Real Housewives of Cheshire and The Real Housewives of Jersey UK.

According to The Sun, production company Monkey Kingdom, which produces RHOCheshire and RHOJersey for ITVBe, is now planning a Real Housewives of Scotland.

Insiders reveal that producers want to cast two former Miss Scotland winners, Nicole Jolly, who won in 2003, and Nicola Mimnagh, who won in 2010. 

“When the production company started approaching people to take part they basically all said the same as Judy Murray, that they weren’t from Glasgow.”

The insider added, “So instead they’ve cast the net wider and decided to make it The Real Housewives of Scotland.”

Jolly is married to entrepreneur Garreth Wood – son of Scots billionaire Sir Ian Wood. Ex-WAG Mimnagh, from Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire, who was once married to ex-Rangers star Kyle Lafferty.

It’s also reported that Kae Tinto, the ex-wife of former Rangers chairman Sir David Murray, along with ex-GMTV presenter Woody Morris, lifestyle blogger Susie Cormack Bruce, philanthropist Poonam Gupta and Anne Ferguson – wife of celebrity crimper Taylor Ferguson – have been approached.

The outlet reveals that the network is offering £50,000 each for the leading women to take part in the upcoming new series.

The news comes after it was reported earlier this month that Judy Murray, the mother of tennis champs Andy and Jamie told how she was offered a spot as the reality franchise planned a Glasgow-based series. Murray didn’t think she would be great for the series.

“I’m not a housewife and I’m not from Glasgow,” she told The Sun at the time. 

Judy was approached to join the new series after showing her support via Twitter for Tessa Hartmann, who was in the last series The Real Housewives of Jersey on ITVBe.

“One of my friends is in it so I got hooked — it was hilarious. I put something on Twitter about it, then I got a call from a production company saying they were considering doing Real Housewives of Glasgow,” she told The Sun. “They asked if I would be interested in being on that.”

She added, “Well, I’m not a housewife and I’m not from Glasgow — but I will still watch it if they make it.”
