Oldham born divorcee and former glamour model Ampika Pickston describes herself as “feisty, fun loving and warm hearted”. Now based in Hale Barns, Cheshire and the owner of a beauty salon named Opium, Pickston has “no comment to make about poor people” but thinks “poor is a state of mind”. This brash participant in ITV’s The Real Housewives of Cheshire loves chocolate and shopping and of men comments: “I’m not here to be f***ed about, played with. I’m not a little rag doll, I’m not a toy. I will play with the toys and when I’m done with you I will discard you”. She “openly admits to seeking out [only] rich men” but who on earth would want her?
