Sam Faiers proved she is the best aunty over the weekend as she hosted an amazing sleepover for her niece Nelly at her Hertfordshire home. The Mummy Diaries star transformed her living room especially for her sister Billie’s daughter’s fifth birthday, with circus-style teepee tents for the birthday girl, her brother Arthur and cousins Paul and Rosie to sleep in.

Each of the red and white striped tents was lined with fairy lights and had a fluffy sheepskin rug, cosy blankets and cushions for the children to sleep in. They each had a tray table where they could sit and eat, while red, blue and gold balloons were hung from the ceiling.

Sam shared a glimpse at the colourful setup on Instagram, along with photos of the four children sat in their tents ready for bed while wearing matching monogrammed pyjamas. "Aunties birthday surprise for Nelly. Thank you so much @littlelavu for making it extra special & @glitzgigglez for the balloons. It all looks so beautiful," she captioned the photos.
