By Lily Waddell & David Kent

Shane Lynch and wife Sheena White will be back on our screens on Monday evening as the duo will appear in the latest series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire.

The show, which follows the housewives family and home life comes after she and Shane, who share daughters Billie and Marley, briefly ‘split’ last year during a rough patch during the lockdown.

Debbie Davies, Hanna Kinsella, Lauren Simon, Lystra Adams, Nicole Sealey, Rachel Lugo, Seema Malhotra and Tanya Bardsley will all return for the brand new series.

But the ex-Boyzone star will feature too, along with his long-term lover.

Who is Sheena White?

Sheena is an actress and backing singer.

She played Miranda in Cold Feet, was an extra in the movie Opposition and also had a role in Doctors.

When did she marry Shane?

Shane and Sheena go way back as they were married in a romantic ceremony in Kent in 2007.

The Boyzone star dropped out of Celebrity Love Island in 2006 after realising Sheena was his "one true love."

Previously, Shane was married to Eternal singer Easther Bennett in 1998.

But their marriage wasn't meant to last as they went their separate ways by 2000.

How many children do they have?

The couple are parents to two daughters, Billie Rae aged 11 and Marley Mae, aged seven.
