She may be only 22 months old, but the youngest star of The Only Way Is Essex already knows how to make bank.

Billie Faiers' infant daughter Nelly has been making cameos on the ITVBe reality series since she was just a week old, and her mum proudly revealed the toddler gets paid for every appearance.

“She’s got her own bank account, so every time she films she gets some money put into it, which means she’ll have savings when she’s older,” the 26-year-old told Heat magazine.

“I told producers, ‘She definitely deserves it, she’s a cast member!’”

Last year, it was alleged that the cast were being paid up to £100 a day, but Billie admitted her daughter doesn’t receive the same sum as her fellow cast members.

However, now that little Nelly has become one of the most popular stars on the show, she thinks it’s time for a pay rise.

 “It’s actually a bit unfair. When she’s on TOWIE my Twitter goes mad, more than anyone else of the show,” she added.

“I need to have a word with them about that.”

The mum-of-one also said she is hoping to welcome another child before her wedding to long-term boyfriend Greg Shepherd in two years’ time.

“Ideally, I’d like to be pregnant this year, as Greg and I would like to have another baby before we get married in 2018.

"That’s why we’re taking our time with the wedding planning.”
