Sam Faiers’ boyfriend Paul Knightley admits it’s been ‘tough’ letting cameras in

Paul Knightley has admitted that it’s been a "long tough journey" filming The Mummy Diaries.

Sam Faiers’ baby daddy hasn’t always been popular with viewers of the programme and admitted the "criticism" had got to him.

Paul’s frank post comes after he was criticised by viewers for insisting he’d say "no" if Sam proposed.

"Thank you to everyone for tuning in and your support," he wrote on Instagram.

"It’s been a long tough journey letting cameras into our home with my most precious people at our most intimate times, opening ourselves up for reactions and criticism."

He continued: "I’m so grateful for being able to spend so much time with my wonderful partner and our beautiful children, also thankful for the opportunities we get through filming the show.

"I’m glad you all get to follow our journey, It’s been a big adjustment but all worth it for the memories we are making."

Paul was not a fan favourite in the finale of The Mummy Diaries last night after he admitted he would ‘say no’ to a proposal from Sam Faiers and stripped off in front of three-year-old Nelly.

As the family were on a holiday in Dubai, Sam decided to play a practical joke on her partner Paul, but it all got a little bit awkward.

The Mummy Diaries star dove into a fish tank while Paul and baby Paul were looking at the beautiful array of fish, and held up a sign.

Sam joked that Paul looked "a bit nervous" as she held up the sign, which said "will you" on one side, but he tried to remain calm in front of baby Paul.

The 26-year-old swam over and turned over the other side of the sign, which read: "make dinner for me?"

The joke did not go down very well for Big Paul, as he said: "I just thought I know she tries to be funny, but it’s not a funny joke."

He then admitted that if asked by Sam to get married, he would "no."

He added: "I was actually really proud of her that she got in cause I know she doesn’t like fish and stuff. I was proud of her for getting in and doing that."

Sam said she did the trick because she was "Fed up" of being asked when she and Big Paul would tie the knot

She said: "I’m very content at the moment and I feel when the time is right it’ll be right."
