Billie Shepherd and Sam Faiers share ‘holiday nightmares’ as their children return to school

Returning to their podcast, The Sam & Billie Show after a summer break, sisters Billie Shepherd and Sam Faiers candidly discussed the summer holidays, both sharing how it could become rather stressful with three children at home.

Over the summer holidays Sam, 32, headed to Majorca with her partner Paul Knightley and their three children Paul, seven, Rosie, five, and 14-month Edward.

While, Billie, 33, jetted off on a luxury Greek getaway with husband Greg and children Nelly, nine, Arthur, six, and eight-month-old Margot.

Both mums shared that while they love going on holiday they could very quickly turn into a nightmare with three children in tow.

Discussing one particular nightmarish moment, Billie recalled how she had to confiscate her son's iPad after he refused to pick it up when they landed back in the UK.

She explained: "He wouldn't carry his iPad off the plane and I had all the bags and I said to him 'I'm not carrying the iPad' and he went 'I'm leaving it here then' so I said 'If you don't pick your iPad up then I promise you I'm not taking it."

Revealing that she then hid it in her bag, Billie shared that she didn't give the iPad back for a week and pretended it had been left on the plane.

"When we got home he was like 'where's my iPad'" she continued, "I said 'you know where it is, you left it on the airplane.'"

After one week, Billie and Greg gave the iPad back to Arthur and pretended that it had been sent to them from the airline after being found on the plane.

And it's not just while on holiday that the summer can be stressful, with Sam revealing that by the end of the summer break her children were "fighting every day."

To which Billie revealed that she'd had six weeks of fighting in her home, with Nelly and Arthur coming to blows rather frequently – although there was some respite when Nelly went to pony camp for a week.

Billie said: "Not that Nelly causes [the fighting] they're both just as bad as each other, like Nelly and Arthur I just feel like they don't get on very well they clash and argue all the time.

"There might be just a split second where they might be nice to each other and then me and Greg are like 'five, four, three, two, one' and they start arguing and fighting again."
