Sam Faiers has said boyfriend Paul Knightley will appear in her new ITVBe series but not as much as he did during The Baby Diaries.

The former TOWIE star has landed a new reality show called The Mummy Diaries, documenting her first year of motherhood with baby Paul.

It comes after the success of her one-off ITVBe documentary The Baby Diaries, which focused on Sam's pregnancy and birth.

Speaking to The Mirror's TV Life, Sam said: "[Paul] will be in the series but nowhere near as heavily as that episode. He has a full-time career of his own and will be in it as and when. It's mainly focused on myself, the baby and being a first-time mum and my sister, family and friends."

She added: "It's really exciting! We have just started filming and it'll continue up until Paul's first birthday."

Paul turns one in December.

Her one-off documentary sparked plenty of headlines when it aired in February, with many directed at one moment when her partner Paul kissed his mother on the lips. Others didn't think Paul came across too well on screen at times.

Sam said: "People will always try and find a negatie on you. Even if you're a happy couple, there's always something they want to do to try to bring you down. But we won't let that happen!"

The Mummy Diaries will air across six episodes this year.
