Real Housewives Of Cheshire say £14 Miss Selfridge bag is BETTER than £715 Gucci lookalike

THE Real Housewives Of Cheshire stars have declared a £14 Miss Selfridge handbag better than the £715 Gucci lookalike.

Leanne Brown, Tanya Bardsley, Rachel Lugo and Ester Dee appeared on ITV’s How To Spend It Well At Christmas to find out if high-street accessories could compete with their luxury designer items.


This Miss Selfridge bag, which has been reduced to £14 since the show aired, came out on top

The foursome were asked to compare five bags, with prices ranging from £14 to £160, with the Gucci Marmont matelassé mini bag.

A Miss Selfridge black quilted cross body bag, which has been reduced from £20 to £14 since the show was filmed, came out on top, with Tanya, 36, admitting: “I like it better than the designer bag. Don’t tell my husband.”

The tote is currently out of stock online, where it was originally priced at £20, but can still be found in some UK stores.

Rachel was left unimpressed by a £99 Kurt Geiger bag, despite it being real leather.


Leanne and Tanya were stunned by the price of their fave tote


Tanya said she preferred the high-street bag to her £715 Gucci version


The ladies thought the £160 Ted Baker bag looked expensive

She said: “No, not for me. What I hate is the material and also the smell, because it smells like plastic.”

She wasn’t that keen on the £48 Dune offering (it has been reduced by £12 since the programme was recorded) saying it had a “rubbery feel” that was “almost like a condom on your hands”.

Tanya loved the top price option, a velvet bag from Ted Baker for £160. She said: “I kind of like this, it looks expensive.”

Leanne, also 36, thought the gold detailing on the evening bag looked “too blingy”.

There are apparently five different types of which do YOU have?

Totes amaze! How the housewives rated the bags

  1. Miss Selfridge – £14
  2. Ted Baker – £160
  3. Dune – £48
  4. Asos – £15
  5. Kurt Geiger – £99

Meanwhile, the cheapest item in the experiment, a £15 bag from ASOS, failed to cause much excitement.

Tanya warned her pals:  “No, you are not going to like this.”

Praising the £14 Miss Selfridge bag, Leanne said: “I quite like this. It would fit enough in for a night out.”


The ladies were tasked with examining each bag before giving their verdict

Ester agreed: “Definitely. Out of the high street ones, I’d go for this.”

The reality stars were asked to rate the bags from one to five – and were stunned when they discovered the purse-friendly price of their favourite.

Leanne said: “Brilliant bag for that price. I’d definitely have that bag.”

Meanwhile, Kerry Katona confirms she’s joining the cast of Real Housewives Of Cheshire as she moves in with Ampika Pickston.
