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.'
