We’ve hougli 1 Nelly a mini Range Rover’
TOWIE star Billie Faiers tells Closer about Christmas with pregnant sister Sam, and why she’s thrilled with Ferne McCann’s performance in the jungle
While most people will be rocking festive jumpers and elasticated waistbands on Christmas Day, TOWIE star Billie Faiers says she and glamorous sister Sam, 24 – who is due to give birth in January – won’t be letting their Essex style slip.
We always dress up for Christmas” giggles Billie. I’ll put on a glitzy dress or a jumpsuit, and I always do big hair and lots of make-up because I know there will be loads of pictures! It’s like a mini fashion show! Billie adds: Sam will probably keep her feet up this year as she’s heavily pregnant, but we love posing for Christmas selfies!
A TRUE ESSEX BABY
Billie, 25, says it will also be a very special second Christmas for Nelly, her 16-month-old daughter with fiance Greg Shepherd.
She says: It’s really cute because she’s more aware of what’s going on this year, and she’s already had lots of fun pulling all the decorations off our Christmas tree!
We’ve bought her a mini Range Rover, which comes with a remote control so we can control her driving around in it! She’s turning into a right Essex diva. She already insists on feeding herself, admires the stilettos in my wardrobe and enjoys pretending to use my lipsticks.
Earlier this month, Billie’s Essex pal Ferne McCann, who broke up with her on/off boyfriend Charlie Sims in March, was a hit on I’m A Celeb!, and Billie is thrilled that her friend’s true colours shone through.
Billie says: Ferne did amazingly well. People just see her arguing on TOWIE but now people have fallen in love with the real her. She’s so much
fun and she completed all those terrible tasks – there’s no way I could have done it!
I can’t wait to start filming with Ferne again. She still loves Charlie as a person but I can’t see them getting back together. Their time is done now and I think they both need to move on.
And with former TOWIE stars Lauren Goodger, Gemma Collins and Mario Falcone making guest appearances in the Christmas special, Billie says she’d love to have them back on the show for good.
She says: I think it would be great to get Lauren and Gemma back – they’d certainly kick-start some drama! Mario came round to give Nelly a little pressie and he still has that naughty glint in his eye. He’s single after just splitting up with his girlfriend so he could definitely cause trouble. Watch out ladies!
