Missé Beqiri is best known for her role as both a main cast member and a friend on The Real Housewives of Cheshire and for her relationship with former TOWIE star Jake Hall.

Although she left the ITVBe show in 2019 and has since split from Jake, it seems that Missé is well and truly living her best life as she focuses on her modelling career.

Missé has worked with brands including H&M and Agent Provocateur and a quick glance at her Instagram account shows that she often travels the globe as part of her work. Must be nice.

We'll be honest – as fabulous and iconic as she was on the show – we haven't thought much about Missé in a good few years, but with Ampika Pickston's imminent return to the Cheshire scene this series, we couldn't but help reminisce about that dinner party from Hell when Missé and Ampika came to blows.

Which dinner party? Fair point. Come to think of it, their horns were locked for a few seasons early on - and we mean LOCKED.

If your memory needs a jog, give their names a search on YouTube or TikTok because, honestly, those two make Rachel Lugo and Paige Chohan seem like lifelong friends.

Anyway, just in case RHOCheshire producers decide to bring back Missé (imagine) à la Ampika, Tanya Bardsley and Ester Dee, here's everything you need to know about the former Housewife.

Who is Missé Beqiri?

Missé is a model, actress and TV personality. She shot to fame on a huge scale when she joined the third series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire in 2016 and appeared as a main character for two seasons before announcing that she was leaving.


She previously admitted that she was "devastated" about her time on the show coming to an end.

"I’ve just finished filming Housewives – my last scenes because I’m leaving after this," Missé explained to The Sun.

"I’m gone for good. It’s devastating but everything has to have its end. I’m moving on and have my life with Jake in London.

"I also have some really interesting work coming up that I still can’t talk about."

When was Missé Beqiri on The Real Housewives of Cheshire?

Missé joined the cast as a main Housewife for the start of series 3 in April 2016 and remained a main cast member until the end of series 4. She became a 'friend' for series 5 before quitting.

Where is Missé Beqiri from?

Missé is of Swedish-Albanian descent. She was born in Malmö, Sweden and was brought up there. At the beginning of her career, she worked in a clothes shop in Copenhagen before being scouted at an early age to be a model and travelled to Paris, Milan and New York for work.

Is Missé Beqiri married?

Once upon a time, yeah. In 2014, Missé married Danish footballer and former Manchester United star Anders Lindegaard and welcomed son Julian. They divorced in 2016 after two years of marriage and released a statement citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their separation.

In RHOCheshire scenes, Missé was seen having a heart to heart with her co-star Dawn Ward about the spilt.

She said, “Mentally I’m not in a good place, Anders and I are growing apart and we’re becoming different people.

“I am literally holding everything inside me, I feel like I’m going to explode every second.”

Are Missé Beqiri and Jake Hall still together?

After admitting that she was “ready to move on” from her heartbreaking divorce, Missé began dating former TOWIE star and Chloe Lewis’ ex Jake Hall in 2016.

In 2017, the pair welcomed a daughter, River, and Jake got down on one knee in 2018. Missé's new life with Jake in Essex was the catalyst for her leaving RHOC and she worked closely alongside Jake on his clothing brand Prevu. Missé has also worked on a clothing collection with womenswear brand Misspap.


Things weren't always been rosy for the pair though. In 2018, Jake was handed a restraining order after police were called to a furious row between the pair. He was banned from contacting her for 28 days but was not charged with a criminal offence.

Missé and Jake are no longer an item after they unfollowed each other on social media (for a time) and reportedly split after a series of rows. Jake still evidently plays a huge part in River's life as his little girl regularly featuring across his Instagram.

Is Missé Beqiri dating anyone new?

If she is, she's not made it public knowledge. These days, Missé's feed is full of snaps of her and the two kids and, of course, plenty of stunning modelling shots.

What happened to Missé's brother Flamur?

In 2019, Missé brother, Flamur Alex Beqiri, 36, was shot dead in front of his wife on Christmas Eve in West London.

Medics and a health worker neighbour battled to save Flamur, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

It later emerged that he had links to Sweden's criminal networks.

Missé has since paid tribute to her brother on the second anniversary of his death. In February 2021, she penned a moving tribute to her brother on what would have been his 38th birthday.

Missé shared a snap of herself and brother Flamur playing in bath as children on Instagram, writing, "Feels like I've lost a part of my body.

"I will cherish and miss you always. Happy birthday my brother."
