Sam Faiers has confirmed she and her sister Billie have had provisional discussions about starring in their own reality TV show and she admits she'd like to have some other 'TOWIE' people make an appearance in it
Sam Faiers wants her former 'TOWIE' co-stars to appear on her own rumoured reality TV show.
The 24-year-old blonde beauty and her sister Billie, 25, have started having informal discussions about starring in their own series, which would be shot in a similar format as 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' .
And if the proposed programme goes ahead Sam would be keen to feature some familiar faces in a guest capacity.
Discussing the mooted series at the European premiere of 'Magic Mike XXL' in London on Tuesday night (30.06.15), Sam said: "Nothing's been signed off on the show yet and nothing definite is in place but we have been talking a lot about it because we would love to do it.
"It won't be this year because Billie is still in 'TOWIE' and she doesn't have plans to leave just yet. It's really early days. Bille and I are still really good friends with so many of the old and current 'TOWIE' girls so they could feature on our show."
Sam would love to act as a co-producer on the potential reality series and thinks it would work better if it was a genuine "fly-on-the-wall" format rather than the manipulated reality of 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz on the special white carpet at the glitzy event, Sam said: "If I have my way then I would co-produce and make sure it's a real fly-on-the-wall show, really raw, catching every moment. And I'd want it to involve our family and friends and our businesses. There is a lot going on behind the scenes that never really got shown on 'TOWIE'."
And Sam - who is dating Paul Day - also wants to be honest about her struggles with Crohn's disease on the show, so the public can get more information about the painful bowell condition.
She added: "I'd be happy to talk about Crohn's on it, any chance I can to put the word out there about Crohn's then I will. My own reality show would be a great way to spread the word again, I'm not embarrassed to talk about it."
Other stars to be invited to the premiere - which was attended by the cast of the film, led by Channing Tatum - included fellow 'TOWIE' alumni Ferne McCann, Danielle Armstrong and Lauren Pope, Leah Weller, Diane Vickers and The Saturdays singer Una Foden and her husband Ben among others.
