Daisy Lowe ‘is being sued by celebrity builder over an unpaid £45k bill after he refurbished her £1.5 million home but star is going to fight him in court’

Daisy Lowe is reportedly being sued by celebrity builder Phil Turner for not paying him a £45,000 bill after he refurbished her £1.5 million home.

According reports from The Sun on Friday, Phil’s company TWP Interiors Ltd was hired by the model, 32, to refurbish her home, but she ‘wouldn’t pay her bill’ after the work was complete.

The star, however, argues that the work Phil carried out was unsatisfactory, and she is said to be prepared to fight him in court over the matter.

Discussing the work at a preliminary hearing, Phil, who appeared on BBC show House Invaders, said: ‘She befriended me and I took the job on — I didn’t realise a celebrity like Daisy wouldn’t pay her bill.

‘She is living in a building that is complete, she cooks in a kitchen that’s complete, and she is enjoying the ­surroundings built for her.’

Phil’s firm is suing Daisy over the alleged debts in a county court in London, and she is said to be ready to fork out £68,000 to defend her case.

The builder is representing himself in the case and claimed when she chose not to pay the items left outstanding were kitchen windows, doors and a roof light that he was waiting to be delivered.

He is said to have told the judge that he’d already ordered and paid for the items at the time.

However, her lawyers argued she didn’t need to pay the bill because the work was not completed in a ‘satisfactory manner’. 

Her barrister Harry Gillow told the publication: ‘Our case is that Mr Turner did not carry out his services with reasonable care and skill.’

A trial between Daisy and Phil will be held at a later date. 

MailOnline has contacted Daisy’s representatives for further comment. 

Daisy bought her three-bedroom Camden home in 2017, and she regularly holds Instagram lives from her kitchen. 

Phil made a name for himself on the Big Breakfast as a Builder of the Week, and he also appeared on House Invaders.  

Prior to their professional relationship, Daisy was a guest at Phil’s 2019 wedding to make-up artist Gary Cockerill.
