Sam's been a doting aunt ever since little Nelly was born on 9 July. She was by Billie's side in the delivery room when she arrived in the world.

New mum Billie later tweeted: "Thank you @SamanthaFaiers for being there for the whole labour you should be a very proud aunty."

Nelly made her TOWIE debut on Sunday night's show, where she was seen being cuddled by Billie at home while Ferne McCann and Gemma Collins popped over for a chat.

"You know when people say there is no feeling like it?" she asked her friends. "There isn't! You can't explain it."

"I can't believe I made her. She was in my tummy. When she's asleep, I'm looking over thinking, 'When are you going to wake up?' I want to give you a cuddle."
