Billie Faiers in tears as she continues to stress over £1.5m house renovations

Billie Faiers broke down into tears on Wednesday 20 April evening’s episode of The Mummy Diaries as she practiced has charity ball speech amid ongoing stress over her house renovations.

The 32 year old, who was recently grilled by her mum about her future plans to have more children, has been busy documenting the work being carried out on the property, which has had some issues.

On the latest episode of the TV programme, Billie was left unimpressed as her 37 year old other half Greg Shepherd decided to try his own hand at taking care of the garden landscaping project.

“Why can’t we just have a brick wall done?” Billie questioned while shaking her head, to which he replied: “But why have you said that now?”

She later sat down to go over a speech she intends to give at a charity ball for Haven House Charity Hospice, but couldn’t get through it without breaking down into tears.

Putting her hands up to her face, she shook her head as she said: “I’m sorry, I’m very sorry.”

Billie previously spoke out on how she’s struggling to cope with the ongoing renovations on their home as she told Greg “I do feel like I’m going to explode,” during a date night.

As tears fell and Billie blurted out her stress, Greg appeared to feel bad for the turn the conversation took when they were meant to spend quality time together.

The couple, who were recently left mortified as their son shouted rude words on a “jam-packed” flight, were enjoying time away from their children when Greg picked up on the fact that his other half couldn’t make a decision about some aspect of the renovation project.

He claimed that they started a conversation about tiles three months ago, and he’s still waiting for Billie to choose which ones she wants.

Talking later about the bust up, Billie admitted: “I think at the moment the house is so consuming of our lives it’s really difficult to switch off from it. No matter where we are or what we’re doing the conversation always goes back to the house.”

Venting his frustration, Greg said: “It should be signed off with the builder, done and dusted. And it’s not. And the more you’re in denial, the more we’re never going to get this house finished.”

But when he opened up later, Greg reckoned that he seriously mistimed his points about Billie’s procrastination.

“We don’t want to be rowing on a date night. And for some reason, we end up talking about the house. And I really don’t want to be arguing with her. But the reason that the house isn’t moving on, it’s because she’s not making decisions quick enough,” he said.

It wasn’t long before Billie saw red and felt the need to justify her delay in committing to decisions.

“Just put yourself in my shoes, which I don’t think you’ve done,” she told a clearly uncomfortable Greg. “So number one during the house build, you know that I get up and work. I’m doing everything everyday, keeping on top of the school stuff, the kids, just running the home, I’m burning myself out. And I’m getting to the point now where I’m exhausted.”
