Sam Faiers' baby boy is set to make his television debut in the coming weeks as he plays a starring role in a new one-off reality show. The new mum and her boyfriend Paul Knightley will share their experiences of starting a family following their whirlwind romance in a new ITVBe special, Sam Faiers: The Baby Diaries.

The 90-minute programme is set to cover everything from baby scans and Sam's baby shower to how the couple are coping following the arrival of their son.

The tell-all documentary, set to air in February, will also include intimate home video footage taken during Sam's labour, as well as the moment the couple bring their son home for the very first time.

Sam welcomed her baby boy on 29 December, one day before she celebrated her 25th birthday. The first-time mum is yet to reveal her baby's name but she is clearly smitten with her new arrival, telling fans that "words can't describe" how in love she is with her son.

Similarly her sister Billie, who will also feature in the upcoming reality TV show, is clearly relishing her new role as an aunt judging by her recent social media posts, in which she described her nephew as "so precious" to her.
