TOWIE star Billie Faiers shares wedding dreams

The Only Way is Essex's Billie Faiers prepared her sister Sam for endless sleepless nights ahead of the birth of her son.

The Only Way is Essex star Billie Faiers wants a Coleen Rooney-style wedding.

The 25-year-old got engaged to fiancé Greg Shepherd on Valentine’s Day last year (14Feb14) and has been busy planning her nuptials. She’s looked to footballer’s wife Coleen for inspiration, as she and soccer star Wayne tied the knot in a luxurious £5million ceremony in Italy in 2008.

“I’d love a Coleen-style wedding,” Billie gushed to Britain’s Closer magazine. “She chose such a romantic setting. Greg and I have been talking about having our big day in the South of France. Greg and I stayed in this amazing hotel before we had (daughter) Nelly called Château de la Chêvre d'Or. We’d love an intimate wedding there but it may be out of our price range. We’ll have to see.”

There’ll be a new family member joining the celebrations, as Billie’s sister Sam recently gave birth to a little boy. Speaking before the happy news, Billie shared how she’ll be helping her sibling out as she begins motherhood.

“She’s going to be an amazing mum,” she smiled. “She’s so good with Nelly – and I’ve prepped her for the sleepless nights!”

For Billie and Greg, the romance hasn't died since they became parents in the summer of 2014. They still go out on dates while Billie’s mum looks after their tot, enjoying meals out and hotel getaways. Even when they’re running after Nelly they make the effort to appreciate one another, as the reality star stresses it’s important in keeping their relationship strong.

Conversation then moved onto who Billie thinks will be the next TOWIE couple to get engaged, and she believes James ‘Arg’ Argent and Lydia Bright could walk down the aisle after dating on and off for years.

“Lydia and Arg will marry next,” she smiled. “Despite the ups and downs, they’re best friends. It’s going to happen!”
