Billie: ‘Greg and I laugh at our bickering on TV!’
he’s due to marry her long-term boyfriend Greg Shepherd this spring – and Billie Faiers admits her sister Sam is helping her in the run-up to the big bash.
Greg proposed to Billie – who has two children Nelly, four, and Arthur, 22 months, with the businessman – back in 2014 and they have been seen having some heated moments about their nuptials on their reality show
“Samantha has been so helpful,” laughs Billie. “She planned my Ibiza hen do and she’s also throwing me a final bridal shower, which I know she will do an amazing job of arranging. I’m not too nervous about the big day – my main thing is that I just want all our guests to have an amazing time and enjoy themselves. Greg and I laugh when we watch back our bickering on TV – wedding planning can be so stressful!”
Billie recently launched Disney On Ice’s Very Important Grandparents campaign, which is dedicated to the wisdom of grandparents – and admits she couldn’t cope without her 48-year-old mum Sue’s unwavering support.
She says, “My mum has been a huge help with me and the kids and they love her so much, so I think it’s nice to have a campaign that encourages children to show appreciation for their grandparents. We can’t believe how quickly the kids are growing up – obviously Nelly is in school now and it’s crazy seeing how much she’s changed over the last few months. As for Arthur, he is starting to talk more and it’s so cute watching him copying his big sister.”
And after testing out her skating for Disney, Billie says her pal Gemma Collins will be making an impression on
which started last week. She adds, “Gemma is actually really flexible, so I think she is going to do really well. I’ll love watching her on the show and am rooting for her all the way!” By Bella Evennett-watts ● Billie has teamed up with Disney On Ice – for tickets, visit Disneyonice.co.uk
