Billie Faiers has sparked outrage from fans after posting a sweet snap of her two children in fluffy pom pom hats – which fans suspect are real fur.
The mum-of-two took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of eight-month-old Arthur and her two-year-old daughter Nell, with her 1.4million followers.
The snap showed Nell and Arthur in a shop wearing cosy coats and hats.
Billie captioned it simply with: ‘These two today… helping mummy at the farm shop’.

But many were in shock that the 27-year-old mum had chosen the fur trimmed hats.
One follower informed the TOWIE star: ‘that company @west22uk uses REAL FUR- raccoon fur to be exact’.
While another fan admitted the snap was sweet but didn’t agree with the fur: ‘Beautiful but please don’t promote fur ☹️ x’
A third follower implored the star to think again: ‘Please can I ask @billiefaiersofficial why do you think it’s ok to wear real fur? I’ll accept your answer even if I disagree, I’m just curious to know if you’ve given it any serious thought? Thanks!’
Whereas this user didn’t hold back, blasting the mum for the ‘stupid hats’: ‘@billiefaiersofficial teaching your children from a young age on how to be up compassionate towards animals , SHAME ON YOU ! What a disgusting trade to promote !! Skinning animals alive just to appear on a stupid hat !!!’
‘Take those hats off those poor kids. Animals skinned alive for vanity and the kids have no choice’, begged another follower, while this fan said: ‘That’s real fur I believe ? Real fur = unfollow. Celebrity status shouldn’t be used for evil and promoting fur is just that.’
This fan simply questioned: ‘why do you use animal fur when faux fur is available?’
