Sam Faiers has landed her first movie role just weeks after announcing she has quit The Mummy Diaries – and she'll be starring alongside Kim Kardashian.

The 30 year old is swapping the small screen for the big screen alongside her five year old son Paul as they have both landed voiceover roles in the new Paw Patrol movie.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Sam and her eldest child will join the likes of Kim and Jimmy Kimmel in the movie, set to be released next month.

Kim announced she would be starring in the film as Dolores last month, telling her 235 million Instagram followers: "I'm so excited for you guys to hear me play Delores in PAW Patrol: The Movie!"

It is believed that Sam's contract with the ITVBe show she starred on with her sister, Billie Faiers, stopped her from taking up opportunities such as the animated movie.

A source told MailOnline: "Sam's been inundated with offers since announcing her departure from the Mummy Diaries and has already lined up a number of major roles.

"She's excited to be working with such a world-renowned studio and hopes this will open up new career opportunities for her."

Sam announced she had quit the reality show last month, writing on Instagram: "To my wonderful followers and supporters of The Mummy Diaries over the past 7 years, for many months of consideration, I've decided that now feels like the right time to step away and to focus on new adventures.

"I truly have watched all the most defining moments in my adult life play out on The Mummy Diaries – bringing two beautiful children into the world, my relationship with Paul, building my businesses, creating a home together as a family, and of course all the wonderful memories with Billie and my family."

She continued to tell her 2.5 million followers: "I'm so grateful to ITV and Potato for giving me and my children the best home movies anyone could ask for, I could never have imagined 7 years ago that we would still be here today- 9 series on! But more importantly I will be forever appreciative to our incredible viewers.

"For those of you wondering why, and this is the honest truth; I always said when the children start school, I would reassess the situation and this wasn’t an easy decision to make by all means but I’ve decided I would let my family take a break from it all.

"For me personally TV has been my career for the last 11 years, you have watched me grow up since I was 19 and I don’t plan on retiring yet.

"I’m working on some exiting projects and very excited for this next chapter I love you all so much thank you Sam."
