The mum-of-two said she packed 10 suitcases worth of wedding gifts for guests, which included bikinis.

Phil said that Billie had 90 friends and family members staying at the Kuramathi Island Resort with her for the wedding.

And after finding out how much the hotel costs per night, Phil was quick to grill Billie on how much her wedding cost.

Phil said: “This is the Kuramathi Resort in the Maldives. So we had a look, if you were to stay there next Saturday it would be £650 a night, that would be £4,588 for a week for the superior beach villa.

“The whole week for a 100 guests, £229,000. So you must have got a deal there. £229,000 for your wedding?”

Laughing awkwardly, Sam said: “Not much of a deal,” before Billie added: “No, it wasn’t quite that.”

Not done with his grilling, Phil asked: “Right, so they did give you a deal?”

Billie said: “Because there was a large group of us, we had the beach houses but they split them in two so two families would be in one beach house. That really helped us out.”

Billie and Greg tied the knot earlier this month.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Billie said her wedding was like a “fairy tale”.

The TOWIE star admitted it was the “best day of her life”, with the exception of the days her kids Nelly, four, and Arthur, two, were born.

She told the publication: “Other than the days that Nelly and Arthur were born, it was the best day of my life. It was like a fairy tale – all the stress and tears were worth it. It’s so lovely for me to finally be a Shepherd and share a surname with my children. Marriage ties our little family together completely.”
