SAM Faiers is back on reality TV with the latest series of The Mummy Diaries on ITVBe.
She is now a mother of two and has launched an empire beyond Towie – here’s what you need to know about her…
How did Sam Faiers become famous?
She was born Samantha Elizabeth Faiers on December 31 1990 in Brentwood, Essex to parents Sue Wells and Lee Faiers.
She has an older sister called Billie.
When she and Billie were little girls, their parents divorced and their mum remarried.
In 2010, Sam appeared in the very first episode of reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex.
She soon became a household name especially after her sister joined her on the show in the second series.
In March 2014, Sam announced she was leaving the show at the end of the eleventh series due to a lack of story lines, and to focus more on her personal life.
How many children does Sam Faiers have?
Sam currently has two children with her partner Paul Knightley.
Paul Jnr was born in December 2015.
Sam gave birth to her baby girl Rosie on November 11 with her representative telling The Sun Online: “Samantha and Paul are delighted to welcome a baby girl into the world, both mother and baby are doing well.”
The 27-year-old announced the birth in an Instagram post which showed husband Paul and son Paul Junior climb atop her and the newborn.
Sam captioned the sweet snap: “Welcome to the world our beautiful baby girl.”
In October 2018, Sam shared a candid shot on Instagram of her breastfeeding Rosie.
Who has Sam Faiers dated?
During the first series of Towie she had a fling with Mark Wright after he split from Lauren Goodger.
She then started dating Joey Essex in 2010 but they split a year later only to reconcile and get engaged in 2012, but a year later the relationship was over.
Following their split, Sam told The Sun that she needed to part ways with her former beau “for the sake of her sanity,” claiming that Joey had never been made to grow up.
‘That’s why we had to break up, for the sake of my sanity. I hoped it would end in marriage and children, but in the end, I didn’t know who he was anymore.”
In her controversial book Secrets And Lies she also revealed more about their decision to split.
“Our love for each other was never in question, there was always a powerful chemistry. But our rows were always the end of the world.
“He could never keep anything private — not only with TOWIE viewers, but with his whole family. He played games and messed with my head.
He was obsessed with the idea of me cheating even though I never gave him a single moment of worry.”
In 2014, she met and started dating property developer and estate agent Paul.
What is Sam Faiers net worth?
Sam has proven herself to be quite a businesswoman, with an impressive worth of £4.2 million.
And, of course, reality television has played an enormous part in her earnings, thanks to The Mummy Diaries and appearances on Towie.
Elsewhere, her clothing boutique, Minnies, gained a lot of attention after it was heavily featured on the ITV2 show.
She also runs All Bits London, which is a clothing brand she created with Paul, and supposedly it’s doing very well for the two.
And if that wasn’t enough, Sam also landed herself a lucrative deal for the QuizXSamFaiers clothing line.
When does The Mummy Diaries air on ITVBe?
The Mummy Diaries commenced with season six on September 11, 2019.
As mentioned, Sam’s show will once again be airing on a weekly basis on ITVBe, with a time slot set for 9pm.
While it’s unclear as to how many episodes fans can expect for the latest season, given that it’s usually always been eight episodes per series, we expect no different this time around.
Of course, if you happen to miss any of the episodes, you can always catch them again on ITV Hub.
What other shows has Sam Faiers been on?
In January 2014 she took part in the thirteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother and arrived handcuffed to another housemate, American model Jasmine Waltz.
During her time in the house, she started feeling unwell and shortly afterwards she was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.
Sam made the final but finished fifth.
In 2016 she landed her own reality show called Sam Faiers: The Mummy Diaries which followed her first year of motherhood.
The hit reality show is now in it’s fifth series, with the premiere for the latest series being on 6th March 2019 on ITVBe.
What does Sam Faiers do for a living?
In 2011, she and her sister set up Minnie’s Boutique in Brentwood which they turned into an online business selling clothes and accessories.
The ladies still own it and both even model their wares for the online shop, including maternity wear.
Sam has since set up another online clothing store, All Bits London, and also designs ranges for companies Rare London and Very.
She has also launched her own online fitness website – Celebrity Training with Sam Faiers – which offers workout videos and healthy eating recipes.
Did Sam Faiers fall out with Ferne McCann?
On May 1, 2018 Ferne revealed her and Sam fell out over her TV show, First Time Mum.
The single mum said it because she decided to go ahead and film First Time Mum — after Sam’s hit series of The Baby Diaries.
Ferne confirmed in Star magazine: “We fell out because I went ahead and filmed for this show.
“After the year I’ve had, I haven’t got the energy to entertain feuds. I just want positivity around me.”
But the once former friends have since repaired their friendship and reunited to celebrate Billie’s wedding.
