Why did Leanne Brown threaten to quit The Real Housewives of Cheshire?
The Sun revealed that Leanne had massively fallen out with fellow cast member Dawn Ward and the pair “refused” to film together last season.
Camera crews were driven mad as tensions ran high on set after a bust up over a disputed £500,000 loan from Leanne's hubby's company Wes Brown Ltd to Ashley, Dawn's husband.
Leanne then threatened to quit along with co-stars Tanya Bardsley and Ampika Pickston after being labelled a “lap dancer” and a “slag” and a “prostitute” by a mystery co-star in the furious row.
They were eventually convinced to stay, but a source said: “Leanne, Ampika and Tanya were on the verge of quitting altogether this week.
“The rows have been getting even worse, so they thought leaving the programme was their only way out.
“The show is in tatters – another big argument between the wives and that could be it.”
Dawn, 43, who is married to ex footballer Ashley Ward, did not take part in a trip with Leanne other cast members to film on location in Dubai as a result of all this.
Who is Wes Brown?
Real Housewives star Leanne is married to Wes Brown, an English professional footballer who currently plays for Blackburn Rovers.
He started his career at Manchester United where he made 232 appearances as a defender.
After 15 years with the club, he left to play for Sunderland for five years, and has been at Blackburn Rovers since 2016.

The pair have three daughters together, Halle, Lilia and Lola.
