Who is Erik Pieters?
Pieters grew up in Enspikj and began as a central midfielder in the youth ranks of VV Rhelico in Rumpt.
He was then scouted by Utecht, where his solid performances attracted the interest of PSV.
And he then joined Stoke City in 2013 for a fee of £3million.
He was recently fined £70,000 by the Potters in March for attending a nightclub the day before a match against Everton.
Who is Erik Pieters married to?
He married Nermina Pieters-Mekic in 2016, who has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Cheshire.
She is a model and trained legal advisor, and she launched her music career on the show.
After the pair tied the knot, the Stoke star opted to get his wedding ring tattooed on his finger.
This is because he has a lump on his finger after a collision with Nordin Amrabat, and a ring could not fit over the top.
The pair were recently spotted nipping to the hairdressers in a remarkable £157,000 McLaren sports car.
Who are the Real Housewives of Cheshire and when is it on ITVBe?
Dawn Ward, wife of retired footballer Ashley, has returned for the seventh series having been one of the original cast members.
Tanya Bardsley, who has also been on the show since the very first episode and is married to Stoke City footballer Phil Bardsley, also returns.
There are a few non-Wags in the show too; fashion brand owner Seema Malhotra, Stacey Forsey who is married to Sports Direct businessman Dave Forsey and outspoken Lauren Simon.
Czech born Ester Dee is back for her third season on the show – she caused a bit of a stir when she was introduced in season five when it was revealed by The Sun on Sunday that she wasn’t married to the man who she appeared on the show with, property developer Rob Lloyd.
