Samantha Faiers has revealed that she hopes to return to television screens with a new and different style of show business.
The 32-year-old reality star has already been on TOWIE as well as Celebrity Big Brother and had her own show The Baby Diaries as well as being on Sam and Billie: The Mummy Diaries.
But now Sam hopes to make his way into the world of documentaries, breaking away from reality-style shows.
He told a fan on Instagram stories that he wants to tackle bigger issues.
Sam said, “I always wanted to do a more documentary style though, about the reality of a really major global crisis that’s not talked about publicly.”
New project? Samantha Faiers has revealed that she hopes to return to television screens with a new and different style of show business.
“For example, human trafficking and child exploitation.”
The star, who is dating Paul Knightley, is also looking forward to working alongside her sister Billie again and their mother Suzanne Wells.
Sam shares three children with partner Paul-Paul Jr, seven, Rosie, five, and Edward, nine months.
It comes after Sam complained that he “just can’t win” after receiving backlash for complaining about his “exhausting” vacation in Abu Dhabi and the “difficult” flight home business class.
The influencer spent a week in the UAE on a family vacation with her sister Billie and mother Suzie on a PR stint to promote the country through her social media posts.
And after being branded ‘deaf’ after sharing her struggles about the ride home, Sam has now complained that she ‘can’t win’, while insisting that her job as an influencer is ‘I work 24/7’.
The former TOWIE star voiced her grievances on her and Billie’s podcast, The Sam & Billie Show, stating that since flights were a gift she had to post about it, but instead focused on the difficulties of traveling with children, especially one who is teething
She said, ‘It’s like, are you kidding me? Like yes, I have flown business several times, but not every flight is business. Come on, it’s like once every blue moon because that was part of the job.

She continued: ‘You just can’t win, I had to post the flight because it was part of the job we had to do with the Tourism Board.
“And then I didn’t want to talk about it being business because I thought, I’m just not like that to show off business class seats.” So I was like, oh, you know, I’ll talk about the fact that I didn’t sit down for a second.
The reality star opened up about how she hoped her followers would ‘relate’ to her difficulties traveling with young children and admire her ‘honesty’, however she was exasperated when she didn’t get the response she expected.
She said on the podcast: “I can’t really be bothered to explain myself, but it was like you knew some people were commenting on things like, ‘Oh, look at you showing off on your business class flight.’
“Which I wasn’t by the way, and I was talking about Edward’s teeth,” before adding again, “You just can’t win.”
Big sister Billie, 33, stepped in to defend her, saying: “It’s frustrating because I feel like I’ve worked really hard, just like you, to get what we have and do what we want.” do, we have worked hard for it.
We haven’t sat around playing with our thumbs.
While Sam was quick to insist, “It’s 24/7 work.”
Billie then pointed out that the sisters were just “regular girls” who should be allowed to “celebrate” their successes, adding, “We juggle and it’s juggling and sometimes a struggle.”
The fury began when, after sharing a selfie cradling her nine-month-old son Edward in first-class seats, she highlighted how “difficult” it had been for her and her partner Paul Knightley to go on holiday with their children.
She began: “The truth is that going on vacation with small children is difficult, especially with a baby who is crawling and teething.”

Sam continued: “We had an amazing time in the sun, swimming every day, exploring, sightseeing and eating lots of ice cream, but it’s exhausting, remember no one said it was easy.”
‘As for the flight home, Edward slept for maybe 1 hour out of 7.5, it’s safe to say I was doing everything I could to keep him entertained without crying.’
She went on to thank the ‘helpful and friendly’ staff at Etihad Airways who had helped her when she felt ‘uncomfortable’ about flying with a baby.
However, the post immediately riled up her followers, who were quick to point out that the post seemed deaf when many were struggling with a cost of living crisis.
