‘I absolutely loved it’

Lystra is ready to set sail to Mexico with her cast mates as they prepare for one hell of a Christmas get-together. On asking Lystra about her excitement for the Christmas special she seemed rather keen to explain how buzzed she is for everyone to see it.

“I found it amazing and, no word of a lie, I absolutely loved it,” said Lystra. “I’ll tell you what, if they asked me to go on another one, it would be a yes from me.”

RHOCH Lystra Adams: ‘Tanya is my best friend’

RHOCH alum Tanya Bardsley and Ester Dee are set to make an explosive return on the Christmas Cruising special. Asking Lystra how excited she was to have them both back, she was ecstatic.

“Tanya is hilarious and having Esther join us too was brilliant,” said Lystra. “The two of them just had my head all spin. I loved it. I loved them. They’re amazing.

“Tanya is my best friend, so it was such a nice surprise to see her. We didn’t know she was coming. It was literally like when you watch a movie, you’ll get to see how it all unfolded. It was such a pleasant and amazing surprise. I never stopped hugging and kissing her.”

‘You’ll have to have to wait and see’

RHOCH is known for the drama, arguments, fights and a hell of a lot of tears and tantrums. The 60-minute episodes are sure to leave you gripped each week. We were desperate to find out whether we can expect drama from the new Christmas special.

“You’ll have to have to wait and see what Santa has got in his sack. Only kidding, of course, it’s the Real Housewives Of Cheshire,” said Lystra. “Listen, we all love each other really but you have to have a little bit of somebody being naughty. There’s lots of nice and there’s a little bit naughty – but there you go.”

On asking Lystra what she has in store she teased an exciting business adventure could be on the horizon.
