Mummy Diaries EXCLUSIVE: ‘What takes priority? Your handbags?’ Greg locks horns with Billie over his swimming pool ‘vision’ as they begin renovating their new home
They have been musing over moving house for some time.
And the day has finally arrived for the Shepherd clan in scenes set to air on ITVBe’s The Mummy Diaries on Wednesday evening, as they get the keys to their new home.
While excitement is certainly rife when Billie and Greg and their kids Nelly, five, and Arthur, two, visit the property, the couple appear to clash over Greg’s insistence that they have a pool in the garden of their new garden.
Uh oh: Billie and Greg lock horns over their house plans as they get ready to renovate their new home in Wednesday night’s Mummy Diaries
Billie and Greg have been looking to leave their home in Essex yet insisted they were not leaving until they found the perfect pad.
While the home looks in need of an image overhaul, the couple appeared to have things planned out as they chatted to a designer about the changes.
Both Billie and Greg admitted they have a ‘vision’, before Greg stated: ‘All I’m worried about is where the swimming pool is going to go. We can’t have a pool inside because it’s dangerous for the kids’.
When he is asked if it will be a covered pool they discuss moving the pool inside, as Billie objected to having a covered pool outside blocking her view of the garden.

Although Billie insists the pool is ‘not a priority’, Greg bites back: ‘And what is a priority? Your handbags?’
Earlier in the episode fans will see the touching moment Greg, Nelly and Arthur surprised Billie with the keys to the house on Mother’s Day.
Greg said to the tots: ‘Who wants to take the presents and who wants the card?’
Reading out her card, Billie said:’Dear Mummy, enjoy the house. Your eyes twinkle in the moonlight. Lots of love, Nelly and Arthur’, before opening her gift.
Inside was the keys to their new house – with Nelly announcing: ‘We are moving house’. Billie then gushed over her excitement.

The delighted couple said: ‘There’s always worry that things will go wrong. This will be the biggest adventure yet for us. Let the planning commence.’
Things get a bit spooky when they first arrived at the house as Nelly said to Billie’s mum Sue: ‘Who’s making those loud noises I heard wooo and a whistle. I swear.’
Arthur then says: ‘Hello is anyone there?’ In her confessional Billie confesses: ‘I was a little bit freaked out by it, not going to lie’ – although the noises turn out to be prankster Greg hiding in a wardrobe.
The Mummy Diaries airs on ITVBe on Wednesday at 9pm
