Sam Faiers’ husband Paul Knightley blasted for ‘selfish’ decision about son

Paul Knightley was branded "ridiculously selfish" by irritated Mummy Diaries viewers tonight as he revealed that he didn’t want to send his son to nursery.

As he and Sam went to dinner with sister Billie and fiance Greg Shepherd, he revealed that he was reluctant to send baby Paul to pre-school.

Billie, 28, appeared to get frustrated with Paul as she insisted that nursery would allow their son to become more independent.

"It is a little selfish," Billie said as she failed to mince her words. "I feel like when he goes to school it’s going to be the biggest shock of his life."

But Paul was adamant, saying: "I would rather be around him than send him to nursery."

One tweeted: "Paul is very selfish little paul needs to mix with other children think of your child #MummyDiaries."

While another commented: "Billie is speaking so much sense. Baby Paul will have the shock of his life at school. Big Paul is just being selfish #MummyDiaries."

A third pointed out: "Anyone noticed that Sam hasn’t said a word? Little Paul won’t go to nursery because it will upset Paul. What he wants goes regardless of what’s right for anyone else. #MummyDiaries."

"I agree with Billie and Gregg little Paul should go to nursery and interact with other children his own age. It’s important that kids have other engagement with children before school. Does anyone else agree with that #MummyDiaries," another wrote.

One commented: "Paul doesn’t want Little Paul to go to nursery for his own selfish reasons. The best thing for Little Paul doesn’t come into the equation. #MummyDiaries."
