STACEY Solomon said she stopped flirty boyfriend Joe Swash kissing other girls on the lips after he smooched Emma Bunton.
The 30-year-old star today admitted she was “taken aback” by the former EastEnders actor’s full-on behaviour around women and tried to put a halt to it.
Speaking on Loose Women, she said: “Joe is extremely flirty and when I first met him I was taken aback with the flirtiness.
“You know what he’s like, he’ll come and give you a kiss on the lips. He lights up a room with his flirtiness.”
She added: “The kissing on the lips thing – it took me a while to adjust. I kind of reined it in a little bit.
“I was like: ‘Yes to your mum, no to Emma Bunton.’ There’s a line.”
The star said she told him: ‘Yes to your mum, no to Emma Bunton’
Spice Girl Emma is specifically on the ‘do not kiss’ list
Asked how the ban was going, Stacey told Jane Moore: “Well he didn’t kiss you on the lips this morning did he?”
But Nadia Sawalha piped up: “He did kiss me this morning on my lips.”
Fellow panellist Carol McGiffin chose that moment to stick the knife in, sniping: “Maybe he thought you were his mum?”
Stacey insisted that Joe’s behaviour with her was “different” to how he flirted with other girls which reassured her.
Joe and Stacey’s baby son Rex was born in May
The couple have been together since 2016
She said: “After that I realised it wasn’t any flirting to be worried about, if that makes sense.”
Stacey today revealed she, Joe and the family were making their first Christmas card since baby Rex was born in May.
The star told fans: “I know it’s a bit early to wear a Christmas jumper but I love making family Xmas cards to send to our families.
“It’s one of my favourite things at Xmas!! Can’t wait to see it and show you…”
