Sam Faiers: ‘TOWIE could go on for 40 years’

The Only Way Is Essex‘s Billie Faiers reckons the reality TV series could go on ‘for the next 40 years’.

The busty blonde, whose sister Samantha also stars in the ITV2 hit, said there was no danger of the show running out of steam.

“From what I see and hear day-to-day, nobody is even a tiny bit bored of TOWIE. I suppose if in five years there’s no demand for it, then it will stop, but right now nobody is even thinking like that,” she said.

“It keeps evolving season on season and I think it could run for the next 40 years like some soaps have.”

Billie – whose New Year’s resolution is to ‘keep working hard’ – said she’d learnt a lot since joining the cast of the show.

“I’ve learnt that there can be a lot of jealousy out there, but there’s also a lot of lovely people too. I’ve grown up a lot since appearing on the show, but on the whole it’s been a very positive experience,” she added.

And the star said she plans to return for the fourth series of the show.

“I intend on doing so, I love TOWIE so I’m not planning on going anywhere anytime soon,” she revealed.
