Inside Billie and Greg Shepherd’s Christmas elf surprise visit for Nelly and Arthur

Billie and Greg Shepherd have pulled out all the stops for their children Nelly and Arthur with an adorable Christmas elf surprise visit.

The former TOWIE star, 31, and children's author Greg, 35, who star on ITVBe The Family Diaries, shared the annual tradition of The North Pole elves visiting their children Nelly, seven, and Arthur, four, in the run-up to Christmas Day.

Billie and Greg enlisted the help of Elf Express Ltd to surprise the little ones on their doorstep and to make sure they were not on the naughty list.

The family-of-four were in the festive spirit as they donned matching red and white pyjamas while they waited for the cheeky elves.

Meanwhile we can see that Billie and Greg have a gorgeous Christmas garland outside their home in Essex with a collection of white baubles and feathers to create the stunning installation.

The Christmas elves, named Pop and Pickle, put on a hilarious performance for Nelly and Arthur before the duo sang Jingle Bells on the driveway for the little ones.

Greg, Billie, Nelly and Arthur posed for a sweet snap with the cheeky elves with the dad-of-two captioning the snap to his 549,000 Instagram followers: "The countdown begins when the @elfexpressltd turn up."

It comes after Billie and her sister Sam Faiers have launched their podcast titled The Sam and Billie Show after the pair called time on their series The Mummy Diaries.

And speaking to sister Billie on their new podcast The Sam and Billie show, Sam revealed that she doesn't want to be pregnant when she walks down the aisle.

She said: "I said to him [Paul], 'Right, we are three babies in now and I’m still Faiers on that birth certificate and I should be Knightley!'

"I’ve been stopped at the airport before, when travelling without Paul and with the kids, and I don't have their birth certificates.

"[I don't want to be a pregnant bride] but Paul did say ‘yeah that’s the next thing!’. So maybe after this baby.

"But I said to him ‘please don’t propose to me [straight after the birth]!’”

A source told OK! last week: "Sam won’t feel pressured into doing things just to please people – she doesn't mind that they're still not engaged.

"She is concentrating on the family and probably hopes to get married once she has stopped having kids."

The star has also said she would "love" another home birth after welcoming daughter Rosie, four, at home.
