In 2012, Sam reportedly ‘begged’ TOWIE bosses to include her ‘mad’ tracksuit-wearing Nanny Wendy – who lived in Marbella – in the programme.

She said: ‘We are begging for a series in Marbella and I have told them that if they go they are getting Nanny Wendy in it.

Sam added: ‘People love those relationships on TOWIE and did see that with the Wright family, who also had their mad nan. I’ve got nanny Wendy, who lives in Marbella and has short red hair.
