TV personality Sam said it "wasn't an easy decision" but she's decided to step away from reality TV to give her family, including Paul and their kids Rosie and Paul Jr, a "break".

Sam wrote in the caption: "To my wonderful followers and supporters of The Mummy Diaries over the past 7 years, for many months of consideration, I've decided that now feels like the right time to step away and to focus on new adventures.

"I truly have watched all the most defining moments in my adult life play out on The Mummy Diaries – bringing two beautiful children into the world, my relationship with Paul, building my businesses, creating a home together as a family, and of course all the wonderful memories with Billie and my family."

She continued: "I'm so grateful to ITV and Potato for giving me and my children the best home movies anyone could ask for, I could never have imagined 7 years ago that we would still be here today- 9 series on! But more importantly I will be forever appreciative to our incredible viewers.

"For those of you wondering why, and this is the honest truth; I always said when the children start school, I would reassess the situation and this wasn’t an easy decision to make by all means [sad emoji] but I’ve decided I would let my family take a break from it all."

Teasing her next adventure, she went on: "For me personally TV has been my career for the last 11 years, you have watched me grow up since I was 19 and I don’t plan on retiring yet I’m working on some exiting projects and very excited for this next chapter I love you all so much thank you Sam x

"Also guys the Shepherds are currently filming their own show, an exciting spin off picking up from the last series can’t wait to watch it sis @itvbe @potatoitv".
