‘Saved’: Billie Faiers said her ‘strong’ and ‘amazing’ mother had saved her and her sister Sam from ‘very damaging’ situations

Speaking to Fabulous magazine, Billie said, “Obviously it was horrible and really sad, but mom was holding on so well that Samantha and I were still fine.

“At the ages we were, it could have been very damaging, but my mom was amazing. We are really lucky that she is so strong and has remained strong throughout this situation.

Billie, who is training for the next season of Dancing On Ice, said she now understands how difficult it is for her mother to raise the sisters on her own.

She added that she was “so grateful” for the sacrifices Suzie made as a single mother, saying she now understands that she has grown up and has children of her own – Nelly, six, and Arthur, three. .

The TV personality is getting ready to hit the rink next weekend as the new Dancing On Ice series kicks off.

In October, Billie revealed that she suffered her first fall while training for the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice with partner Mark Hanretty.

Billie took to Instagram and admitted that she had cried for half an hour and believed her body was in shock after the incident.

Help was soon at hand, however, as her husband Greg along with Nelly and Arthur arrived to cheer her up.

After their visit, Billie shared a smiley face of herself and her family standing on the ice together, as they enjoyed a skating session after rehearsals.

She captioned the cute snap: “Look who’s come to visit me today. Before they all got to the rink, I had my first bad fall on the ice… I can’t believe I cried for over half an hour.

“I think my body went into shock, I couldn’t stop crying, then I laughed, then I cried, anyway I’m doing great… thanks @markhanretty for having me helped get through that one.

“I’m sure there will be a lot more. Seeing the little faces of Nelly and Arthur certainly cheered me up and @gregory_shep of course.
