mummy diaries exclusive billie and greg shepherd gutted after planning permission is denied

Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd are left gutted on Thursday’s episode of The Mummy Diaries after their planning permission is denied by Brentwood Borough Council. 

The former TOWIE star, 30, and her spouse, 35, purchased a run down 1920s property earlier this year and had dreamed of turning it into a five-bedroom £1.4 million dream home over a planned year and a half long project. 

Yet on Thursday’s episode, Billie and Greg discover their plans have been ‘shattered’ as their planning permission has been denied by Brentwood Borough Council in Essex.

Talking to the camera in a behind-the-scenes clip, Billie says: ‘We just feel absolutely gutted don’t we. I didn’t think I would feel as upset about it as I do.

‘It’s on my mind, I just can’t get it out of my head, I just feel like all the plans we made have been shattered… I know it sounds dramatic, but that’s just how I feel.’

To which Greg adds: ‘It’s now going to go on for months and months. We don’t know where we stand really at the minute.’

The episode also shows the moment Billie and Greg first find out about their failed planning permission.

Billie’s mother, Suzie Wells, asks if they’ve spoke to the architect, to which she reveals: ‘I haven’t, he has! Every time I try to ask him…’

To which Greg argues: ‘You’ve got his number, ring him!’ 

Suzie then asks her son-in-law what exactly the architect said, to which he explains: ‘He said the house, it’s just a straight no, there’s no report. The house is too big and bold for the street. We’ve got to arrange a meeting with him and take it from there.’

He then makes a dig at wife Billie and says: ‘You just ring him, as you’re there sitting on your high horse!’ 

Sad: Talking to the camera in a behind-the-scenes clip, Billie says: 'We just feel absolutely gutted don't we. I didn't think I would feel as upset about it as I do' with Greg adding: 'It's now going to go on for months and months!'

With Suzie diffusing the situation by complaining: ‘There’s no point in you two getting all stressed with each other.’

Yet Greg continues to rant: ‘I sent you his number straight away, if you want to ask him a question, ask him a question… instead of sitting there and going, “urghhh”, you don’t even ring him!’

Billie insists she will call the architect and says: ‘It’s just so annoying when you’ve got your heart set on that. 

‘Also, it’s just dragged on for so long, if we had known this from the beginning, we probably wouldn’t have started building.’

To which Greg adds: ‘No, if we had known from the beginning, we wouldn’t have bought it!’  

Yet despite their woes, which were filmed earlier this year, the couple have since received a green light on their dream home after reducing the building by a matter of centimetres.

Earlier this month, Billie shared a picture of toasting a glass of wine with Greg to their home Instagram account called ‘homewiththesheps’. 

She wrote: ‘We are so excited that we can FINALLY announce that our Planning Permission has been APPROVED ✔️❤️

‘I know we have been extremely quiet on here due to waiting for the permission, but we can now look forward to sharing lots of updates with you all on our huge renovation project ❤️.’

It came after it was reported that Billie and Greg  had to make a number of changes and compromises for neighbours to finally ‘accept’ their plans.

The official notice stated that ‘in pursuance of the powers conferred on them’ the couple would be permitted to carry out specific work.  

According to The Sun, this would allow them to demolish the existing garage to build a two-storey side extension.

Additionally, they would be able to demolish the existing conservatory in order to build a single-storey rear extension.

The luxury mansion would also be complete with an in-and-out driveway along with a single-storey front extension and landscape work. 

MailOnline contacted Billie and Greg’s representative for comment at the time.   

The Mummy Diaries stars, who are parents to six-year-old Nelly and Arthur, three, have been battling with their neighbours for months over their renovations plans. 

However, after reducing the building by a matter of centimetres, renovations were given the green light.

Among the changes that were in the revised plan were to make the height of the planned extension 50 centimetres lower and to ensure their home is further from their neighbours.  

In their latest submission, Billie and Greg are quoted as saying: ‘The planning officer confirmed that these now overcome the reasons for refusal on the original application. They therefore recommended that a revised application be submitted.’ 

In a previous rejection response from the council officer’s report it was written of the potential house: ‘It would be the biggest house on the street and the increase in size from the original home would not be acceptable.’ 

The reports also had concerns about whether the home would be sympathetic to the local area.   

The decision notice stated: ‘The proposed extensions when combined would create a development which is excessive in terms of bulk, size, massing, roof design and siting, resulting in overly dominant additions to the existing dwelling and a substantial building out of character and appearance within its context.

‘It would unacceptably reduce the spatial quality between properties which is characteristic of the area, to the detriment of local visual amenity.’ 

The Mummy Diaries continues at 9pm on ITVBe.

irena srbinovskas brother defends her amid feud with bella varelis

The brother of Bachelor star Irena Srbinovska has defended the nurse after her former friend Bella Varelis labelled her a ‘manipulative little b***h’.

Igor Srbinovska, 29, told gossip website The Wash on Sunday that his sister was the ‘most selfless person on earth’ and would ‘never put someone down’.

He said: ‘People will always look to peg others down to prop themselves up, Irena has never and will never do anything to put someone down.’

He continued: ‘A tenth of her goodness hasn’t been shown [on TV]. She’s the best person I know, the most selfless person on earth.’

Igor went on to say he was ‘extremely proud of Irena and how she’s handled herself on the show’.

‘Her reactions are a reflection of the person she is, and the way others have reacted are a reflection of the person they are,’ he added.

Bella and Irena’s feud began shortly after the contestants returned to the Bachelor mansion after three and a half months of lockdown.

On-site production of The Bachelor had been suspended from mid-March until the first week of July, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

At the first post-lockdown cocktail party, a furious Bella, 25, accused Irena, 31, of lying about the extent of her contact with Locky during self-isolation and called her a ‘manipulative little b***h’.

‘I think she’s got a rose because they do have a really good connection. I think she’s very good at manipulating and making herself come across as a victim,’ Bella said.

‘It just sucks because both of my last relationships have been ruined because there was a girl that’s come in that’s manipulated it. And she’s doing exactly that,’ she told the other women. 

An insider later claimed Bella had been under the impression that she was the only woman having ‘lengthy’ phone and SMS chats with Locky during self-isolation, when he was in fact having similar contact with several girls. 

‘The real reason they fell out was that Bella couldn’t accept the fact that Irena had also formed a close connection with Locky during lockdown,’ they said.

‘She was furious when she found out multiple girls were talking to Locky on a daily basis – but she took it out on Irena because they were so close.’

olivia culpo shares video as she turns her bathtub into home office to cope with painful cramps

Olivia Culpo turned her bathtub into her office Tuesday to deal with painful cramps.

The 28-year-old beauty queen shared her new work setup in a short video on her Instagram Stories.

‘We’re here in my new office space,’ Olivia told her roughly 4.7 million followers on the social media platform.

The Rhode Island native had a black facial mask treatment on and wore a black swimsuit in the tub.

‘Cramps are so bad today I made the bath tub my office,’ Olivia wrote as a caption.

Olivia revealed last month on her Instagram Stories that she suffers from endometriosis.

‘It was something that I was nervous to share because I really didn’t know if people would be familiar with the condition, and it turns out a lot of women are,’ Olivia told People last week in an article.

‘I was shocked to see how many women have also suffered from endometriosis, and how many questions women have about painful periods. They’re not normal, and they could get in the way of your fertility,’ she added.

The Miss USA 2012 and Miss Universe 2012 winner was diagnosed last year with endometriosis, in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus.

She noted that endometriosis can be ‘very difficult’ to diagnose and advised women to get their egg count checked and to make sure their painful periods aren’t affecting either their ovaries or eggs.

‘Down the line, it’s so heartbreaking when you think about someone who maybe could have taken action earlier, and now they can’t have children. That to me just feels awful,’ she said.

The Reprisal star revealed that she wasn’t considering laparoscopic surgery to treat her endometriosis.

‘I’m trying to do the holistic route as of now,’ Culpo said.

She added: ‘I want to try to see if I can figure some things out for myself, but we’ll see. It’s a journey. Every month is different because I try different things every month. But I’ll definitely keep everybody posted on what works for me, and eventually having to get the surgery because it really depends. Everyone’s different.’

Olivia has been dating pro football player Christian McCaffrey, 24, for about a year.

Tristan MacManus started his new role as co-host of Studio 10 alongside Sarah Harris, last Monday.

And one Wednesday, the pair looked happy and relaxed as they were left the KIIS FM studios in North Ryde, Sydney. 

The television hosts had just made an appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Sarah looked stunning, showing off her slender figure in a beige shift dress paired with black heels and a black leather bag. 

The 39-year-old completed the look with a pair of large earrings, but her best accessory was her beaming smile.  

She wore her cropped blonde locks loose and had a full face of makeup on,  including a smokey eye, bold brows and pink lipstick.

He completed the look with a patterned pocket square and appeared to be in good spirits, smiling at the camera.  

The Dancing with the Stars judge made his debut on Studio 10 last Monday, less than a week after former co-host Joe Hildebrand revealed he was leaving the show.  

'Now I have a suit on!'  Speaking on the radio program, Tristan admitted his job 'has been a bit difficult to get used to' because only recently he was working as a landscaper

Speaking on the radio program, Tristan admitted his job ‘has been a bit difficult to get used to’ because only recently he was working as a landscaper.

‘It has been a bit difficult to get used to… I was labouring and now I have a suit on and I’m getting paid well,’ he said. 

The husband of Australian actress Tahyna Tozzi explained that he’d turned to labouring in March after the coronavirus pandemic left him without work.

‘I’d been breaking my a**e for the last couple months landscaping when my work got cancelled,’ he said.

From shrubs to suits: Tristan (pictured with his co-host Sarah Harris) told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that his role 'has been a bit difficult to get used to'
