They saved for eight years to renovate the £1.4m lavish five-bedroom Essex mansion they bought in January last year.

And Billie Faiers cut a casual figure as she and husband Greg Shepherd paid a visit to their sprawling abode on Wednesday to check on the progress of the building work.

The TV personality, 31, dressed down in cosy brown gym wear, teaming a tan hoodie and chocolate brown leggings with a long, black padded coat.

Billie added a pair of brown and white trainers to her low-key look, while tying her blonde locks back with a coordinating brown scrunchie. 

The mother-of-two, who went make-up free for the outing, looked as pleased as punch as she made her way back to her car from the house.

In her hand she carried a piece of paper, which may well be a list of projects still to do in the family home.

Both Billie and Greg, 35, seemed in good spirits during the visit, with Greg echoing his wife's laidback look in a black hoodie, gilet and dark jeans.

Billie and Greg have closely documented the work on their home, including in scenes on The Mummy Diaries and their new show The Family Diaries and on the dedicated Instagram page for the swanky renovation. 

The couple appeared on Lorraine last month to discuss the project, saying they'd have bought a house they could have moved straight into if they knew how much work the renovation would be.

Greg explained: 'If I'd have known [all the work] now I'd have bought something done.'

Billie added: 'It is a full time job and when you're husband and wife.'
