Sam Faiers' partner Paul Knightley has defended kissing his mother on the lips during an appearance on This Morning.

The Mummy Diaries star attracted a lot of attention last year when he was filmed kissing his mother Gaynor on the lips during filming for the reality series.

Sam previously spoke about the issue last year, telling Heat: "As a family, we're all so close. It was just a moment between son and mum – she was so proud that he'd had the baby.

"Paul and his older brother always kiss her on the lips."

Now, on today's (May 16) This Morning, Paul himself addressed the speculation over his affectionate relationship with his mother, explaining that he doesn't "find is strange" at all.

"People made such a big deal out of that," he said.

"I'm really close with my mum, and its just something I've always done and will always continue to do.

"I even kiss my son and my daughter on the lips. It's something that we do, I don't find it strange."

Paul's reveal comes after Sam previously discussed rumours of a six-figure paycheck for her appearance on The Mummy Diaries with Digital Spy.

She also had this to say bout the series besting TOWIE to become ITVBe's most-watched show: "It's nice to know that people are enjoying it, that they're actually watching it and wanting more because a lot of hard work goes into it.

"I think it's amazing. That's the sort of thing that gives us more determination to make the show great and give more."

The Mummy Diaries airs on ITV Be.
