Billie and sister Sam jetted to The Maldives a day early to ensure everything was ready for her 95 guests who were set to arrive ahead of the lavish ceremony.

As she feared that Dave wouldn’t be able to book another flight in time to walk her to the altar, Billie broke down in tears.

Narrating the scene she said: ‘When I first got the phone call about dad not making it onto the flight, I thought it was a wind-up I thought he’s not going to mess up with this one.

Greg added: ‘They delayed the flight for an hour and a half to get his bags off the flight. If he does get there, you two need to sit down and I said to him on the phone.’

Billie – branding her dad ‘selfish’ – added: ‘At first I was trying to make light of it, because it hadn’t sunk in, more than anything I feel so frustrated that he’s not going to experience this. 

‘The wedding is a couple of days away, is he even gonna make it? More than anything it was just so irresponsible of him.’
