Since staring on X Factor ten years ago as a single mum trying to kick start her career in the industry, the mum-of-three’s TV career has gone from strength to strength – seeing her front shows, adverts and take part in panel programmes.

To list a few, she won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2010, has taken part in Loose Women as a regular panellist, presented I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp and even joined Celebrity Juice as a series regular.

Her success on the popular ITV reality show led her on to find love with 2008’s King of the jungle Joe Swash – who admitted that he “fancied the pants off her” when they first met, but she was unfortunately already taken.

Despite meeting in 2010, the pair sparked rumours that they were dating in the early months of 2016 and put the rumours to bed soon after as they went Instagram official.

Two years later, the lovebirds moved in together with Stacey’s son’s Zachary Solomon, 11 and Leighton Barham, 7 who are from previous relationships and began trying for their own child together.

Earlier this year Stacey announced the amazing news that she was pregnant and gave birth to her beautiful baby boy Rex in May 2019 – and now all she’s waiting for is Joe to pop down on one knee and ask her to marry him.
