"The Real Housewives of Jersey promises an equally fabulous cast in another aspirational location. We're thrilled to welcome these ladies into the ITVBe family and know our audience will look forward to getting to know each of them over the course of their debut series."

Mike Swindells, Executive Producer at programme makers Monkey, added: “Everyone at Monkey is incredibly excited to build on the Housewives franchise and bring The Real Housewives of Jersey to ITVBe.

"It’s a fantastic opportunity to introduce the world to brand new Housewives and to see how their lives unfold in one of the most unique locations in the UK. We can’t wait to experience all the island has to offer!”

The Real Housewives of Jersey is set to launch later in the year with a premier on the ITV Hub and will run weekly on ITVBe.

Outside the UK the series will be known as The Real Housewives of Jersey, UK.
