The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers has revealed she wants her mother and grandmother on the show.

The model already stars with her sister Billie and boyfriend Joey Essex in the reality show, but now she hopes to persuade ITV bosses to give the go-ahead and include more of the Faiers dynasty.

In the most recent series of TOWIE the group of friends headed off on their annual trip to Marbella and the film crew tagged along to record the summer special The Only Way Is Marbs

Sam commented: “I really wanted my nan to be in the Marbella special because she lives in Marbella, but funnily enough my nan was in England while I was out there, so we crossed over, which was really upsetting.

“My mum would be great on the show – she’s really good-looking, she’s young, she loves going out with the girls, but she’s just so camera shy, so I don’t know. Maybe…”

Sam admitted it had affected the holiday having the cameras there. “Marbella was really good, but it wasn’t like our usual holiday because we were trying to do partying and filming and there were a lot of fans out there and we were trying to mix it all into one holiday. So it was quite stressful.”
