News Image
ITVBe has announced details of two new commissions, as well as one recommission, for the channel this Autumn.

Following the success of the last two series, former TOWIE star Sam Faiers teams up with sister Billie for the third instalment of The Mummy Diaries – Sam & Billie Faiers: The Mummy Diaries.

The eight-part series follows Sam, pregnant with her second child, as she and her family have now moved to her dream home, a mansion in Hertfordshire. Her son Paul is now walking and talking and Sam's business empire is continuing to grow, with a deal in the US secured.

Her sister Billie and her fiancé Greg are making plans for their wedding whilst adapting to life with their baby son, Arthur. They are also looking for a school for daughter Nelly, while Billie has started a new business venture with her mum Sue.

This new series will see the return of Sam's mother-in-law Grandma Gaynor. In addition, viewers will see the Faiers sisters travel to exclusive sun-soaked destinations.

The first new commission is Tamara's World, which will see Formula One heiress Tamara Ecclestone invite viewers into her life. Across the six-part series, Tamara and her husband Jay Rutland allow cameras exclusive access into their extraordinary world with three-year-daughter Sophia.

Tamara juggles running a £70m Kensington home and fleet of staff, two businesses and numerous charities with the role of being a mother. Providing an insight into the couple's extravagant life, the programme follows Tamara and Jay as they travel around the world by private jet, flanked by security and throwing expensive parties for friends and family. It also reveals the private down-to-earth family moments that Tamara and Jay enjoy with their daughter.

The second new commission is Ferne McCann: First Time Mum. The 90-minute special will follow former TOWIE star Ferne McCann as she prepares for motherhood. Earlier this year, Ferne's happiness at finding love and falling pregnant turned to pain after she split from her partner. This programme will show her positive approach and excitement about having a baby.

With access to her close circle of family and friends, Ferne shows courage and strength in the face of adversity, enjoying exploring different spiritual and alternative pregnancy methods in true Ferne style.

Commenting on the shows, Commissioner for Factual Entertainment, Amanda Stavri, said: "ITVBe viewers can expect joy, sadness, laughter and some sleepless nights as Billie and Sam, Tamara and Ferne give us an intimate insight into the world of motherhood, as they each juggle family life and friendships, with the daily pressures of being a working mum... all under the media spotlight."

Sam & Billie Faiers: The Mummy Diaries is an 8x60' series made by Potato, ITV Studios.

Tamara's World is a 6x60' series made by Monkey Kingdom.

Ferne McCann: First Time Mum is a 1x90' programme made by Potato, ITV Studios.
