Sue films with Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd from the hugely popular Mummy Diaries

Filming of the mummy diaries finished on an almighty high, and from 11th September at 9 pm the NEW series – Samantha and Billie Faiers are returning to your screens and, as usual, bringing all the family with them too!

After a whirlwind fifth series focusing on the wedding of the century – Billie and Greg’s stunning Maldives nuptials – the former TOWIE stars are keen for the new series to have a slightly different focus.


HELLO! sat down with the sisters as they revealed what fans can look forward to seeing in series six.

Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. My son Mark has moved to Secondary School and is having problems. He used to have fun with his friends from different cultural and racial backgrounds all through his Primary School but suddenly Jakub is hanging out only with his Polish new friends, Rishi is hanging out with his Hindu friends & Mustafa is hanging out at break time with his Turkish friends leaving Mark at a loss what has happened. Any suggestions as this upsetting us all. Maria Evangelou from Pinner.

Hi Maria,

It sounds like these boys are  sticking with people they know as they might feel unsettled or unsure about themselves during this transition.

I would suggest that your son encourages them to come over at the weekends to begin with to rekindle and maintain the friendships.

Talk to the school about their multi-cultural approach.  I have the perfect integration course for you and your son, which will make his transition into Secondary School much easier to manage.

Please visit https://www.primary2secondary.co.uk to see the course details and to see how we can assist you throughout this new episode of your son’s life.

Kind regards,
