Sam Faiers has revealed her boyfriend Paul Knightley wasn't keen to be involved in their reality show, The Baby Diaries.

As a former TOWIE star, Sam is already familiar with what's involved when it comes to showing your life on screen, however for Paul it was brand new territory.

The new mum told Lorraine that it took a while for Paul to get his head around the concept of the intimate show, which will follow Sam's pregnancy journey from bump to birth and chart the first few weeks of family life with their newborn.

Sam explained that she was the reason he ultimately decided to go ahead, saying: "He wasn't too keen. He took quite a bit of persuading, it's not his world and he's never been on camera before.

"I actually thought he was a natural and he was quite good. He done it for me.

"I'm glad he got involved as much as he did because it shows us as a family unit, together going into parenthood."

Sam also revealed that at one point during her 26-hour-labour, Paul went missing! Sam realised that her mother Suzanne Wells, sister Billie and Paul's mother, Gaynor were still present - but not the father-to-be!

"I thought, where's Paul gone? He was having a two-hour nap," she revealed. "Gaynor went and got him down again. I said, 'I'll talk to you after.'"

Uh-oh! Wonder if that conversation has made the final Baby Diaries cut?
