Billie Faiers was born to mum Suzanne ‘Sue’ Wells and father Lee Faiers on 15 January 1990. She has a younger sister named Sam.

When Billie was very young, Lee was a millionaire market trader. The family resided on an 18-acre farm in Upminster, Essex.

However, Sue and her two daughters moved out after Lee developed a serious alcohol and drug problem brought on by financial difficulty.  

Billie’s mum later tied the knot with a man called David Chatwood.

Sue and her girls went through a troubled time in 2012 when David was sent to prison for four years for his involvement in a £1.1 million bullion robbery. Billie showed her stepfather support throughout his trial.

David was released from jail early in May 2013 as he’d already served time on remand.

In 2011, a gang of girls set upon Billie and Sam during a night out in London. Billie is said to have had her Mulberry bag stolen while Sam suffered two black eyes, a split nose, bruises and scratches down her back.
