Closer (UK) - - Interview -

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 Dis­ney­on­
