ITVBe announces two new commissions and one recommission
Two brand new shows are coming to ITVBe this Autumn and a channel favourite has been recommissioned for a third series.
Following the success of the last two series, Sam Faiers teams up with sister Billie for the third instalment of The Mummy Diaries – Sam & Billie Faiers: The Mummy Diaries.
In the eight part series Sam is pregnant with her second child and has moved to her dream home, a mansion in Hertfordshire. Her son Paul is now walking and talking and Sam’s business empire is thriving – she has even closed a big deal in the US.
Sister Billie and her partner Greg are making plans for their dream wedding whilst adapting to life with new baby, Arthur. They are also looking for a school for daughter Nelly and Billie has started a new business venture with mum Sue.
The new series features the return of Sam’s mother-in-law Grandma Gaynor and viewers will see the Faiers sisters travel to exclusive sun-soaked destinations.
Formula One heiress and entrepreneur Tamara Ecclestone invites viewers into her life in Tamara’s World.
Across the six part series Tamara, and 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 she clearly cherishes most – being a mother.
Featuring an intimate insight into the couple’s opulent 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 those private down-to-earth family moments that Tamara and Jay enjoy with Sophia – just ordinary family moments in extraordinary surroundings.
Former Towie star Ferne McCann’s journey towards motherhood is documented in new programme Ferne McCann: First Time Mum.
Airing on ITVBe, the 90 minute special exclusively follows Ferne as she faces her future as a mum.
Ferne’s happiness at finding love and falling pregnant turned to pain as she split from her partner, but the programme shows her positive approach and excitement about having a baby.
As she continues to work hard throughout her pregnancy, the programme follows Ferne right through to giving birth.
With intimate 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!
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.”
