Greg begins: ‘Talking about the house, this morning I quickly nipped up there and didn’t want to drive you mad the minute we got here with it, but we are falling behind.’

He explains: ‘There’s things like the bathrooms. He needs to know exactly what sanitary, toilet, everything we’re gonna use. He needs to know the size of the valves, where to put the hot water.’

Billie asks: ‘What’s my time schedule then? to which Greg replied: ‘Seven days.’

Shocked: Billie exclaimed: 'So I've got to pick six bathrooms in seven days? Well that's not going to happen is it, with my work schedule.'

Shocked, Billie exclaims: ‘So I’ve got to pick six bathrooms in seven days? Well that’s not going to happen is it, with my work schedule.’

‘Well you’re going to have to work nights then,’ laughs Greg.

Unamused, Billie responds: ‘Not very fair is it?’

Annoyed: Billie persisted: 'It's a lot of pressure isn't it, to now think that this week I've got to pick six bathrooms'

Greg shoots back: ‘We’ve had 18 months,’ while Billie insists: ‘No one gave me a deadline before.’

Unconvinced, Greg carries on: ‘Billie we was there and he said that we need this within six weeks, I was standing there with you.’

‘I know but then I need a closer reminder,’ Billie persists. ‘It’s a lot of pressure isn’t it, to now think that this week I’ve got to pick six bathrooms.’

Billie and Greg 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.’

‘The roof is finally on,’ said Greg, before Billie added: ‘It’s gonna be worth it in the end. It’s an empty shell. That’s the exciting part for me the interior’

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

The Family Diaries airs on Wednesday on ITVBe at 9pm.
