We're such big fans of The Real Housewives of Cheshire's legend of legends/influencer queen of queens Rachel Lugo that we genuinely feel like we're an extended part of her legendary fam and friendship circle (in our minds, mind). Some say delusional, some say wishful.

Either way, we'll always back our Rachel here at Closer HQ.

Saying that, we seriously need to stop buying everything she tells us to on her Instagram stories; journalism isn't exactly the most lucrative career choice and yet here we are with five LED face masks and a drawer full of magnetic eyelashes thanks to our Rachel. We joke, we'll buy whatever she tells us to.

Those who know the reality star well, will know that she has five children – Francesca, William, Sophia, Oliver, and Sienna with her ex husband John Lugo and while we're regularly kept up to date with her eldest Sophia and her child (Rachel's first grandchild) Saskia, along with her horses and dogs, we don't often hear much about the other kids on her socials.

However, this week, Rachel shared a snap of her rarely-seen 19-year-old son Oliver – who is currently training at a performing arts college in Manchester – and went on to tease his impending West End debut. AKA get him on Real Housewives of Cheshire ASAP to bring the drama...

As far as Closer online can tell, Oliver has been portraying one of the leading male roles in West Side Story at his college, and we're suddenly having visions of Rachel making the move from reality star/influencer to Kris-Jenner-esque stage mum in the near future. If that happens, we'll indeed see you on the West End very soon, Oliver.

Sharing a snap of her son ahead of his final performance, Rachel commented, "Until West End..."

Rachel and Oliver's dad, John, split in 2019 after 24 years together when it came to light that John had cheated. Before their split, Rachel said on social media, "John and I are having a bit of a bumpy ride.

"We are trying to see if we can work it - we've been together for a very long time, it's five children."

Rachel confirmed they had split in an episode of The Real Housewives of Cheshire, saying "I've kind of made a big decision in my life and it is a big step.

"I've decided that I'm not going to take anymore sh-t and it's not a celebration, I don't want any cheers because it's quite sad after 24 years but I've actually petitioned for divorce."

Rachel recently concluded filming on The Real Housewives of Cheshire series 17 with the likes of Nicole Sealey, Lystra Adams and Lauren Simon, with the girls wrapping things up with the reunion taping last week.

As per, it's been an eventful series for Rachel so far, while she has seemingly made peace with her series 16 enemy, Paige Chohan, she has gone on to clash with Lystra and returning Housewife Ampika Pickston this series.
