Sam Faiers has asked her followers if it is “too late” to run the London Marathon as she reveals how she is giving some “serious thought” to taking part in the race.

Mum-of-two Sam, 31, took to Instagram to ask her 2.5million followers for their advice on registering for the London Marathon which takes places on 3 October 2021.

The Mummy Diaries star Sam described how she has “not a runner at all” and has “never been into running” but is looking into taking on the 26.2-mile route through the capital.

The former TOWIE star posted to her Instagram story: “Is it too late to do the London Marathon this year?

“I’m not a runner at all, I’ve never been into running so I am pretty sure a lot of training will be needed.

“But I feel like it could be an incredible experience? I need some advice?”

Sam, who is mum to Rosie, three, and Paul, five, who she shares with partner Paul Knightley, was inundated with “mixed” responses from her followers.

One penned: “It takes over your absolute life. The training is so, so hard but it’s definitely one for the bucket list.”

Another added: “You would need to start training pretty much straightaway for October.”



Sam wrote: “This needs some serious thought. Thank you for all your advice and encouragement. I’m going to keep reading.”

It comes after Sam and her sister Billie Faiers made the most of the Bank Holiday weekend by whisking their families off to enjoy some quality family time together.

The Mummy Diaries stars booked an action-packed staycation to Newport, where they made special memories with their young families and partners.

Once back at home, Sam delighted fans by sharing photos of the gorgeous weekend away on her Instagram.

Sam was joined by her partner Paul Knighley and their two children Rosie, three, and Paul Jr, five.

While Billie’s husband Greg Shepherd was also present with their children Nelly, six, and Arthur, four.

The cousins had a great time splashing around in the jacuzzi and getting to grips with the outdoor play area which their famous mums documented on social media.

The family stayed at the 5* Celtic Manor Resort which boasts six restaurants, a spa and plenty of outdoor activities and while there, the family got to grips with the treetop adventure course and outdoor play area.

Sam and Billie’s mum Suzie Wells was also invited along for the fun weekend.
