Billie and her husband Greg have landed their very own series, Billie & Greg: The Family Diaries.

‘They’ve shared some of the most poignant and personal moments in their lives over nine series, and we hope to work with them again in the future.

‘We’re delighted to be starting a brand-new chapter on ITVBe and ITV Hub with Billie, Greg, Nelly and Arthur. The Family Diaries will continue to provide all of the humour, candour and family fun that have made The Mummy Diaries such unmissable TV.’

While Sam shared: ‘There’s no family more entertaining than the Shepherds, so I can’t wait to sit back as a viewer for a change and watch the fun play out while I have a few adventures of my own away from the cameras.’

Meanwhile, Billie and Greg commented of their new chapter: ‘We are so grateful for everyone’s amazing support over the years, it’s been a whirlwind of a journey so far but we’ve loved every minute of sharing our lives with you!

Meanwhile, a source added to The Sun: ‘Having her own series has been a lifelong ambition, as is building her own dream home in Essex, and being able to film it and share the journey with fans is an incredible opportunity for Billie and she snapped up the chance straight away. 

‘Billie and Greg have proved to ITV they’re a hilarious duo who not only bounce off each other but aren’t afraid to be honest with each other either. The show is filming throughout the summer and will be out later this year.’

She went on: ‘I’m so grateful to ITV and Potato for giving me and my children the best home movies anyone could ask for.

The TV personality went on to explain her decision for leaving the ITVBe show, which she’s featured on since 2016, citing her beloved children as the main reason.

She explained: ‘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 but I’ve decided I would let my family take a break from it all. 

‘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.    

Message: ‘To my wonderful followers and supporters of The Mummy Diaries over the past 7 years, after many months of consideration, I’ve decided that now feels like the right time to step away’
