Billie Faiers has been on TOWIE since the beginning but may be quitting for her own show with Sam Faiers
The originals are the best, that’s what they say right? And Billie Faiers has been on Essex-based reality TV show TOWIE since the beginning, but she could be parting ways with it, following in her sister’s footsteps. Cue the sad music.
The 25-year-old’s younger sister, Sam Faiers, quit the show last year, not because of some terrible disagreement or because she couldn’t face putting on any more fake tan, but purely just because she felt like she’d outgrown the show. And that seems to be exactly how Billie feels too, as a source tells The Sun.
‘’There’s no bad feeling, Billie’s just been there since series one and feels she’s done her time.’
The Essex girl has said before that after five years on the show, the only reason she would quit would be if she wanted to extend her family.
‘’TOWIE have been really good to me and I’m really happy, so for now I can’t see myself leaving. However, if another baby comes along, maybe things would be different,’ she told OK!
Whether or not there may be another mini-Faiers on the card, it’s not like Billie would have loads of spare time on her hands after she left, as she’s a mum-of-one to her 11-month-old daughter Nelly, and is preparing for her wedding with fiance Greg Shepard later this year.
As well as that, she has a business with her sis, Minnies Boutique, and there have even been whispers that the pair want to have their own reality TV show together. We’re thinking like an Essex version of The Simple Life.
It’s not surprising the sisters might want to move onto newer pastures as their brother, Mark Wright, has gone onto so many other ventures since he left TOWIE. From doing the worm on Strictly Come Dancing, being BFFs with Dougie Poynter on I’m a Celeb and landing himself presenting gigs on Heart FM and Take Me Out: The Gossip.
Life after TOWIE ain’t too shabby!
