Nelly’s ‘hysterical’ toast at Billie Faiers and Greg’s wedding
Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd tied the knot in an incredible Maldives wedding ceremony last week.
The Only Way Is Essex star and her long-term partner wed in front of almost 100 friends and family, before heading to a plush champagne reception, with hilarious and emotional speeches from Greg , his best men and Sam and Billie’s step-dad.
While their daughter Nelly, four, had also promised to perform a song from The Greatest Showman on their big day, she decided not to go ahead with her performance at the very last minute.
When asked whether her daughter entertained the guests as she offered, doting mum Billie told OK! magazine : "She didn’t, sadly.
"She’d been working on a Greatest Showman routine for a couple of months and then a week or so before the big day she came in our room and said: ‘Mummy, Daddy, just so you know I want to sing more than one song at the wedding. Love you, bye.’
"She loves to perform but on the day I guess she just didn’t feel like it".
Despite adorable Nelly deciding to ditch her plans to perform, Billie revealed that the little one did make a speech for her mum and dad.
She reportedly told the crowds: "I love my mummy and daddy so much, I’m so happy to be here," before proposing a toast.

While chairing the toast, the couple’s sassy daughter hilariously instructed all Billie’s friends to raise their Prosecco and all of Greg’s to grab their vodkas.
Reflecting on the speech, Billie added that the it was "hysterical," before gushing about how much her kids enjoyed the day.
While Nelly may not have performed, TOWIE beauty Ferne McCann took to the stage and showed off her surprising vocal skills, serenading the newly weds.
Their civilised reception, equipped with a saxophone player and champagne, came before the guests partied the night away in celebration of the the nuptials.
However, their wedding was plagued by reports of their nearly 100 guests running amok through the five-star resort and infuriating the other holidaymakers with their loud noise and selfish drunken behaviour.
One non-wedding guest said it had turned into the ‘Costa Del Sol’ as ITVBe cameras roamed the resort and parts of the island were restricted to allow Billie and her friends to let their hair down without prying eyes watching them.
But Billie has slammed the claims, insisting she and Greg didn’t receive any complaints about their party’s conduct.
