Sam Faiers has been patiently waiting for her boyfriend Paul Knightley to propose to her after having two children together.
Ahead of this week's The Mummy Diaries the show teased what really happened on their romantic trip to Venice, Italy, in an exclusive clip, which was filmed back in September.
As the couple jet off to the Italian city to celebrate their fifth anniversary, her sister, Billie Faiers, her husband, Greg Shepherd, and their mother, Susie Wells, all discuss whether they'll receive a phone call telling them news of a proposal.
Susie tells Greg and Billie that she even gets messages from people asking if Sam is engaged yet, as the already married pair agree that Paul is so private they will never know when it's going to happen.
Sam, 29, and Paul, 31, meanwhile, are in their luxury hotel, with the mum-of-two revealing the saucy lingerie she had packed for the two-night stay as a treat branding herself a "sexy mama".
"I think it's been a long time coming, the fact that we haven't got kids with us, I feel really light! I think it's nice to have something a bit sexy," Sam said as she spoke directly to the camera about their trip.

Pulling out a silk and lace black slip dress, a green silk dressing gown and a white number, Paul barely reacted as he claimed that their romantic evening wouldn't happen as his other half would be too full from pizza to get dressed in the outfits for him.
Promising that she wouldn't let him down they shook on it with Sam saying: "I promise that won't happen. We are here for a good time not a long time!"
Later in the day the couple went out sightseeing where they had caricatures drawn by a local artist that left them in fits of laughter.
After posing for the drawing the artist gave Sam a pronounced pout whereas Paul was given big ears and a big chin.
The pair giggled about it as they went out on a romantic date, where Sam praised her boyfriend for being so calm under the pressure of their relationship being in the limelight.

Sam pointed out to Paul how he had no clue who she was as he'd never seen an episode of The Only Way is Essex, despite also being from Essex.
"That's a really good thing actually it's really attractive," the 29-year-old told her partner across the table.
Speaking to the camera the reality TV beauty added: "So when I first met Paul, he didn't know who I was. At the time I thought 'we are both from Essex surely you will know people that are on TOWIE'.
"It's been so hard for him because it's a whole new world. He was actually thrown in the deep end, but it actually attracted me to him way more. At least you know he's not in it to be famous or to get followers, it was just a genuine attraction."
"It's really hard to have a relationship in the public eye, it's a lot of pressure on the relationship, especially when people start writing stuff that's negative about you," Sam said to Paul.
He agreed and responded: "It's like people trying to stir stuff up for nothing."
The seventh series sees Sam and Paul preparing for their house move to Surrey, as well as fielding questions from fans about when they'll finally get engaged.
She spoke to OK! Online recently where she said that 2020 is too busy for her to think about a wedding: "Ahh probably not! Everyone always asks, but we’ll be moving this year to a completely different county, little Paul goes to school, and it’s my 30th."
She added: "This is pretty much a full exciting year but next year I don’t want the gap to be too big between the kids with having another sibling… So maybe next year we would have another baby."
