Ex-‘Real Housewives of Cheshire’ star Dawn Ward has no regrets over quitting show and is happy with new life in Dubai.

The 49-year-old reality star is married to footballer Ashley Ward, 52 and the pair swapped country living for the UAE’s urban jungle after leaving the series back in 2020 but the WAG has no regrets over her decision to move to the Arab country and still keeps in touch with some of her former co-stars.

She told HELLO! Magazine: “I’ve been fortunate to have been on T'he Real Housewives' for 12 series. I don’t regret it at all and I keep in touch with the girls. Seema and Rachel have been my friends for 20 years, but now it’s a new chapter in my life. I felt exhausted and lethargic when I left the UK. There was so much negativity, whereas here, everyone is extremely positive.”

The lavish £7 million mansion in Alderley Edge recently went back on the market after their move which Dawn says is permanent.

Despite the five-bedroom property holding a lot of memories, Dawn - who has children Darby, 26, Taylor, 24, Charlie, 15, and 12-year-old Aston with the former Premier League footballer - isn’t sad to be selling the big family home.

She added: “It holds a lot of memories, but I’m not sad to be selling it. When I left it was with a smile on my face.

“I’ve conquered Cheshire, now it’s time to conquer Dubai. I’m absolutely delighted to be here. It’s the place to be.”

Our lifestyle is completely different. I love to power walk in the morning. I feel more focused and so much healthier, physically and mentally.

“Ashely and I get up, flop onto our bean bags by the pool, put Bon Jovi on, and chill all day. Then we put on our pyjamas and watch Netflix in the evening. I’m not always glammed up anymore. Far from it!"
