Their day-to-day life is very normal

The new drama was filmed during the lockdown, with Visage and her family making use of all technology at their fingertips, from iPhones to webcams to capture what’s going on.

She joked: “The cameras are here, and we’re using our iPhones, it’s very, very technical and we’re just catching the moments as they come.”

The eight-part factual programme will see the star and her family dealing with life in lockdown, as well as Visage connecting with a number of friends via webcam.

And as a result, she revealed viewers will get to see what their life is like in Los Angeles, and how unglamorous it can be.

She added: “We’ve got a house that’s not the cleanest, so I’m trying to tidy that up because we are not the Kardashians but I’m trying to be in my best way!

“Because we don’t have a guest house or pool or anything like to run to so trying to get our own space and time is kind of funny – it’s like if I get upset I’m going to the loo!

“We’re still doing it, you know, and we’re basically just like everybody else. And I think that’s the allure.

“When you watch Gogglebox and you’re in people’s houses, you feel that there’s a camaraderie that we’re all in there together – and that’s what it’s like, we’re all in this together in my house.”

Visage will be undertaking projects

One of the major aspects of the new series will see Visage tackling a number of projects to keep her occupied, from tidying to learning Italian.

Speaking to Visage, she revealed one of the benefits of lockdown was finally getting time to do these tasks as she is usually travelling so much.

She explained: “We’ve got a load of projects in this house because I am never home, I’m constantly travelling.

“I think last year I spent more than half a year in my favourite country, the UK.

“You know my husband will kind of leave everything for me here so we’ve got, not just household projects but motherhood projects.

“Again trying to figure out what to do for my daughter, my closet, stupid things that you never get to.”

The series is all about escapism

While the idea for the show came about as a result of lockdown, Visage is clear she wants this to be a break from it as well.

She said: “For me, the whole point in doing this was to let people know that they are not alone, that we were all in this together.

“For the first time in history to be able to say, ‘We’re all in this together’ and actually mean it that we’re actually every single one of us is all in this together.

“But at the end of the day, my goal is for people to sit down on the sofa or sit at their table, or on the loo or wherever they watch and to not think about the news, not think about the world.

“Don’t think about Mr Corona, don’t think about anything for 30 minutes and just, you know, watch us and see not only crazy our life is here but also similar.

“I think a lot of people are going to watch our show and go oh my goodness, we do the same thing!”

How’s Your Head Hun is airing on BBC iPlayer now.
