The documentary/reality show hybrid saw a group of older, single female celebrities take a trip to a Greek island villa: Melinda Messenger, Sian Lloyd, Nancy Dell’Olio, Aggie MacKenzie, Ninia Benjamin, Lizzie Cundy, Annabel Giles and Ingrid Tarrant all grabbed their passports and suitcases for a month-long getaway. Each woman was in search of a fresh start and a new perspective.
Fans hailed it for being empowering, encouraging and supportive.
Watching #OurShirleyValentineSummer on @ITV it’s just empowering to see these women encouraging each other, having fun, being kind and just being there for one another! Stop putting people down and just be nice to each other, you’ll have more fun and make great friends ❤️bekind
#ourshirleyvalentinesummer Loved everything about this programme, but to see women supporting each other and lifting each other up is inspirational. That is very rarely shown on tv. I need more women friends!!!
