TOWIE star Sam Faiers has said she's "so happy and excited" that her older sister Billie is pregnant.

Blonde boutique owner Sam, 23, was ensconced in the Celebrity Big Brother house when Billie, 24, confirmed her pregnancy, but now she's back in the real world, she's taken to Twitter to share her excitement at the news.

"I can finally scream it from the rooftops. I'm so happy & excited to becoming an auntie. Love u so much @BillieFaiers & @Gregshepherd," she tweeted.

TOWIE star Billie confirmed on 7 January that she and long-time boyfriend Greg Shepherd are expecting their first child together in the summer.

She'll be the first member of the TOWIE cast to give birth. Co-star Dan Osborne was the first one to become a parent after his ex-girlfriend gave birth to son Teddy in December 2013.

Lucky Billie is currently enjoying a 'babymoon' in the sunny Maldives with Greg, but has caught up with Sam following her CBB stint.

"So lovely to talk to my sister earlier on the phone. That's the longest time we have ever been apart @SamanthaFaiers .." she tweeted on 30 January. "So proud of my sister @SamanthaFaiers for making it to the final of #CBB .. You truly have done us all so proud and I can't wait to see u."

ITV2 confirmed this week that the eleventh series of TOWIE will kick off in February, with another series following in the summer and a third in autumn. Three in one year, we're being spoiled!
