Billie Faiers hits back at trolls as she’s slammed over family holiday
BILLIE Faiers has hit back at trolls after she was slammed online over her family holiday to the Maldives.
The TV star recently jetted off with her husband Greg Shepherd and their three children, Nelly, eight, Arthur, six, and baby Margot.
Billie, 32, has been keeping her fans up to date with her luxurious break after “arriving in paradise” with the family last week.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star has been sharing photos of husband Greg, 38, and mum Suzie, 54, enjoying the sunshine.
But the mother-of-three has already had to defend herself from fans after she was trolled on Instagram over snaps of the holiday.
Now, she has hit back at nasty trolls again after they hit out over her wearing a microphone in one snap from the break.
They theorised that the TV star had been filming for her ITV Be show Billie and Greg: The Family Diaries, while on the holiday.
The followers accused Billie of bagging a free getaway after bringing the cameras with her to film for an episode.
However, after the stir took over her comments section, Billie commented back her holidays are “never paid for” by ITV.
“I never normally comment, however I can see this has caused a bit of a stir on my feed,” Billie replied to her fans.
“ITV do not pay for our holidays, and never have. We pay for our own holidays and we filmed a reality TV show following our lives, which includes following our holidays during filming periods.”
Her fans chimed in to support her, with one writing: “Ignore the jealous comments, I love watching you all. Enjoy.”
Another agreed: “Don’t justify yourself you irrelevant, jealous people. Enjoy your beautiful vacation with your family.”
“OMG what is wrong with people?” a third said. “If she works hard, she can spend her money on what she likes. Lovely photos, Billie.”
It comes after Billie was slammed by fans for going on another luxury holiday, months after the birth of her third baby.
A number of followers complained her post was inappropriate during a cost of living crisis and hit out against the star.
Sharing a snap of the island, Billie wrote: “A taxi, two aeroplanes and a boat ride … we made it to paradise.
“It certainly was worth the journey. So grateful to be here with my family. Wishing everyone a wonderful Easter.”
One angry fan penned: “Not a good post when people are struggling to pay their bills,” as another said: “Another holiday?”
But others hit back to defend Billie, saying: “If people cannot pay their bills it has nothing to do with their holiday, though.”
“If I’m struggling financially I won’t put my bitterness under someone’s holiday picture,” a second agreed.
“It’s her money that she’s earned so she can spend it however she likes! Don’t be jealous and bitter,” said someone else.
