Danielle Armstrong defends Sam Faiers' boyfriend
'TOWIE' star Danielle Armstrong has defended Sam Faiers' boyfriend Paul Knightley after he sparked uproar earlier this week for kissing his mother on the lips on national television
Danielle Armstrong thinks Sam Faiers' boyfriend Paul Knightley has got a lot of "stick" for kissing his mother.
The property developer has found himself at the centre of a heated debate recently after he was filmed sharing a peck on the lips with his mum Gaynor for the couple's one-off documentary 'Sam Faiers' Baby Diaries' over the weekend.
But the 'Only Way is Essex' star has jumped to his defence as she thinks he's been given too much of a hard time.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the premiere of 'How To Be Single', held at the Vue Cinema in London's Leicester Square, last night (09.02.16), she said of Paul: "He had quite bad press. I think he got quite a lot of stick to be honest."
Sam's boyfriend was also branded "controlling" after he demanded the blonde beauty, who went through a gruelling 26-hour labour with their son in December, make him beans on toast while she was breastfeeding their baby Paul.
Danielle said: "I get that he might have come across that he didn't participate in reading the books and stuff, but he is a man and most blokes are not interested in that side of it."
However, despite the show's portrayal of Sam's boyfriend, the boutique owner still believes he's a great boyfriend and a fantastic father to their six-week-old bundle of joy.
She said: "He seems like a nice guy. I have met him only twice and both times he seems very lovely to Sam."
