The Loose Women panelist sets the record straight…

Stacey Solomon sparked rumours this week that she and boyfriend Joe Swash were heading down the aisle with a video posted on social media showing a sparkler on her ring finger.

Fans of the Loose Women panelist immediately bombarded her with questions about her relationship status, excited at the prospect of a Stacey and Joe Swash wedding!

We spoke to Stacey at the Boux Avenue Summer 17 launch on Wednesday evening to clear up the confusion.

‘No, I’m not engaged!’ Stacey said during our exclusive chat. ‘But even if I was, what would it matter?

‘If I was engaged I certainly wouldn’t announce it with a manicure photo. I would just say, “I’m engaged!”’

Stacey, 27, and former EastEnders actor Joe, 35, have been dating since January 2016 and she confessed he helps her to feel sexy – even when she doesn’t believe it herself!

When you get your nails done and you love them so much you're just resting them in front of people and stroking your face in a weird way to show them off 😂😂👌🏼 @ellievbeautymakeup

She said: ‘I feel sexy when I’m being goofy. I don’t feel I’m that kind of person and I get uncomfortable. But I feel sexy when I’m out with my friends, they make me feel good, and when I’m with Joe because he loves me no matter what.’

Despite having been a regular Loose Women panelist since September last year, Stacey – who said she loves co-star Katie Price – revealed she still gets nervous before going on TV.

‘I do, especially when it’s live. But I think if you’re not nervous then you don’t care.

‘But I’m really grateful to be on Loose Women because there aren’t many former X Factor contestants on such a big TV show. I feel really, really lucky.’

Now spoke to Stacey Solomon at the Boux Avenue #impressyourself campaign launch for the Summer 17 season.
