  • Billie Faiers has revealed that she and fiance Greg Shepherd are pushing back their wedding date.

    Billie, who shares daughter Nelly, three, and son Arthur, eight months, with Greg, was thought to be set to tie the knot next year, but has now confirmed that she may wait another twelve months before walking down the aisle.

    The former The Only Way is Essex star, 27, told Reveal magazine: ‘It’s going to be more like 2019. Me and Greg have had such a busy year.’

    Not only did Billie welcome her youngest child earlier this year, she’s also been filming with sister Sam for ITVBe’s reality show The Mummy Diaries, where she’s now a permanent fixture.

    Greg popped the question to Billie during a romantic holiday to the Maldives back in 2014, when she was pregnant with the couple’s first child.

    ‘He said “I love you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you and I know our baby will be just as beautiful as you are. Will you marry me?”‘ Billie recalled to OK! magazine at the time. ‘Then he started crying. It took a while for it all to sink it and then ten minutes later I got a bit tearful too.’

    Since then, she’s spoken several times about her plans for the nuptials, and has said previously that she ‘definitely’ wants to celebrate the big day abroad.

    ‘My dream wedding would be somewhere incredible, on a beach with my family and friends there,’ she told TV Life magazine earlier this year.

    Billie has also confirmed that she wants Nelly, Arthur and her sister Sam’s two children involved in the ceremony as bridesmaids and page boys – and after the wedding, is hoping to expand her family even further.

    ‘I definitely want to get married first and maybe in the future,’ she said. ‘But at the moment, we’re really happy with two.’
