A second series of Ladies of London is set to air on ITVBe from October 2015. Caroline Fleming and Julie Montagu join returning ladies Juliet Angus, Marissa Hermer, Annabelle Neilson and Caroline Stanbury as they follow their lavish London lifestyles.
Set in the glittering, class-conscious city, the series follows a group of elite British socialites, wealthy American expats and stunning Danish royalty who all run in the same exclusive circle. Although London is a diverse and cosmopolitan playground, these ladies are part of an extremely small, tight-knit upper-class community where it’s not always about how much money you have, but what title is in front of your family name. Alliances will be made and hearts may be broken as these fun-loving, fashion-minded divas take the city by storm.
This series brings an extra whimsical dose of fun from new cast member and Danish Baroness, Caroline Fleming. The telly presenter recently returned to London and is bursting back onto the scene. Fans of the series one will get to see more of Julie Montagu, also known as Lady Hinchingbrooke, as she cares for her four children and expands her healthy living empire while her husband, Luke is away running their Mapperton estate.
Caroline Fleming is the former host of The Baroness Moves In and Denmark’s Next Top Model, she was born a Baroness into one of Denmark’s oldest families and is the mother of three children. She is a prominent businesswoman in her own right with a line of hosiery called “Beautiful Legs”. A phenomenal cook, Caroline has published two bestselling cook books and a lifestyle book.

Saddled with being a full time mum herself, savvy fashion blogger Juliet Angus is getting settled in to her new home south of the River Thames while her husband Gregor is globetrotting for his new international tech job. As Annabelle Neilson continues to recover from her horse-riding accident, she turns her focus to penning a children’s book.
Recently becoming a British citizen, Marissa Hermer is balancing life with her new baby and making a name outside the shadow of her restaurant/nightlife mogul husband, Matt. Meanwhile, Caroline Stanbury is determined to secure her ranking as London’s premier elite entrepreneur by expanding her businesses, but as those dreams begin to crumble she still manages to mix it up with friends Caroline Fleming, sister-in-law Sophie Stanbury and the other ladies.
