The 27-year-old reality TV star was given the go-ahead to do another instalment of her family reality TV show following a spike in ratings over the last series, but now bosses want to stretch the goal and have the show on air for a minimum of 15 weeks at a time.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "'The Mummy Diaries' was such a huge success for the network they're currently looking to speed up production to get a new series out by July, with Sam and Billie set to start filming again in the next couple of weeks. After the last series brought in record breaking viewing figures, the channel is keen to keep the momentum going. And TV executives are now planning on having the show on air for a minimum of 15 weeks at a time."

But with more episodes comes more pressure and bosses are desperate to make the fourth series bigger and better than ever before, so are planning to send Sam to the US as she works to build the profile of her fashion brand while looking after her two kids.

The insider said recently: "Producers are keen to follow Sam as she heads back to LA with her family as she focuses on growing her businesses Stateside."

The third series has already got people talking as Sam's boyfriend Paul Knightley - who previously hit the headlines when he kissed his mum on the lips - threw a tantrum when their two-year-old son Paul wouldn't stop crying.

He fumed: "I'm not sitting here having him crying here like this because it's ridiculous."

Sam replied: "Just give him a minute."

Paul hit back: "There's not point - he's just sitting here crying."

He then picked up his bag and stormed off - sparking some fans to brand him a "baby."

Sam also has five-month-old daughter Rosie with Paul, while her sister Billie has three-year-old daughter Nelly and 13-month-old son Arthur with her fiance Greg Shepherd.
