Stacey Solomon has shared an update on her upcoming wedding to Joe Swash.
The engaged couple’s wedding anniversary has been delayed multiple times due to the pandemic and the birth of baby Rose.
However, Stacey and Joe will reveal that they have set a date when they hope to finally tie the knot for Loose Women’s upcoming Christmas Eve special.

Stacey will tell host Ruth Langsford: “Take your hat out, Ruth. Yes we would love it…if all goes well…because Covid is still massive and you never know what’s coming around the corner but we would love to get married next July, a year we really would.
“It will be so nice to have the boys and Rose with us.”
The performance is Stacey’s first TV interview since giving birth to her fourth child in October – and she opened up about how she’s still adjusting to the sleepless nights.
The 32-year-old said: “I put on a lot of makeup for this interview and you can’t see it, it’s getting to my skin now.
“She sleeps, she sleeps like a newborn – you really are up all night, aren’t you? But she is good. She’s happy, which is nice.
“She’s amazing, she’s really pretty. I can’t stop staring at her. Even when she’s sleeping, I’m not getting any sleep because I’m just staring at her.”
Stacey’s fiancé appears on the sofa next to her and the former EastEnders actor shows his pride at how her two-year-old son Rex has welcomed the new addition to the family.
He gushed: “He adores her, he’s obsessed, if anything we try to keep him away from her. No, he was brilliant, he was really, really good with her.”
As well as the two youngest children, Stacey is also a mother to Zachary, 13, and Leighton, 9, – while Joe has a son named Harry, 13, from a previous relationship.
Joe admits he felt like he was the father of his first daughter.
He said: “Yes, it really is. Because I’m quite boisterous and I know the boys are pretty tough – I can toss and wrestle them a bit, especially when I’m changing diapers, I know the limits of boys because I have one myself, but with Baby Rose is that different, I have to be much gentler and more delicate.”
Stacey forgets that Rose is a girl, however, and jokes, “Because I have so many boys, I just say, ‘Pass him over,’ ‘Give him to me,’ and then I’m like, ‘Oh no, her!’
