Before the siblings were introduced, a video report about the family and their upcoming Kardashian-style reality show was played. Towards the end of the VT, a reporter could be heard saying: "From Basildon to Beverley Hills, there's a new family in town."

The cameras cut back to Charlotte and the show's guests before the 47-year-old presenter quickly stated: "Uh-oh, we've upset you already. Well joining us now is the Sims family - Chloe, Frankie, Demi and Charlie. Did you need to make a correction on that point?"

"We're not from Basildon, hun," responded Chloe, prompting laughter from her siblings.

"We'd like to make that clear in that case," replied Charlotte.

"It's alright, we'll let it go," added Chloe, jokingly.

Sharing a snap of the siblings dressed in an all-black leather ensemble, she told her 1.2 million followers: "IT'S OFFICIAL. The Sims family finally have their own show and we are so excited to share the brand new concept exclusively on OFTV.

OnlyFans' official Twitter account confirmed the news with the post: "Ready for the next British Invasion? The Sims are coming stateside and America has no idea what it's in for."

With a working title House of Sims, the new programme will give a fly-on-the-wall insight into the family's lives at their Essex home as well as on their international travels to America. 

The series is expected to premiere sometime in 2023.
