Sneak peek at Billie Faiers' incredible £1.4m Essex mansion as she gets HUGE outdoor pool installed in the garden

BILLIE FAIERS’ new home is well on the way to having a swimming pool ready for the summer.

New images of the impressive renovation show the dugout area in the garden as the rest of the property begins to take shape.

The reality star, 31, paid a visit to the property today, but admitted they are still a long way off.

She told her fans: “House update. Everyone has been working so hard and we are getting there… we actually have a house. We still have a long way to go but I can’t tell you how good it feels to see it all coming together.”

Billie and husband Greg Shepherd, 35, bought the four-bedroom 1920s property in Brentwood, Essex, for £1.4 million in January 2020.

The couple – who share Nelly, seven, and Arthur, four – had plans to transform the run-down space into their dream five bed home with an eye-watering renovation that included a two-storey extension, gym, games room and huge walk-in wardrobe.

But they were refused planning permission amid uproar from the neighbours who claimed the works were “excessive” and not in keeping with other properties on the street. 

Billie and Greg went away and modified the plans, which were then approved but the experience has meant they longer speak to their new neighbours.

Asked if they had built bridges, Billie said: “No, actually.

“We don’t go there much, to be honest, so we’ve not seen anyone. But it’s just not a great start, is it?”

She continued: “The house is so old, whoever was going to buy it was going to have to renovate.

"There’s only one neighbour to the side of us and he had a lot of reasons as to why he didn’t want us to go ahead, but it was getting a bit silly in the end.”

The house is now starting to resemble the plans and they are hoping to move in by spring of this year.
