Billie Faiers has been pictured demolishing part of her own home as it undergoes a major renovation.

The TOWIE star, 31, was smiling from ear-to-ear as she took matters into her own hands in a yellow digger.

She tore down the garden shed and she looked delighted to be part of the work on her £1.4 million mansion.

Pictures show the entire family - including children Arthur and Nelly - joining in on the fun and wearing protective jackets as they watched Billie get stuck in.

She and her husband Greg Shepherd have been in the process of renovating their house and what better way to make sure everything is going well than to take part in the demolition?

They are believed to be planning to tear down the 1920s home and replace it with a luxurious new mansion.

It's taken months to get the planning permission sorted, but it looks like they are now on the right track and work has begun.

Just last week, Billie shared a sweet photo of her husband carrying her in front of their house.

The two looked over the moon as she updated fans on their renovation plan.

"Today is a good day," she posted. "The building work on our new house has FINALLY begun!!! We are so so soooo excited.

"It has been over a year since we bought the property, lots of back and forth with planning permission etc etc... but today is the day it finally all begins!!!
