Loose Women star Stacey Solomon is set to say "I do" to fiancé Joe Swash this year, but on top of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, she suffered a set-back with her DIY invitations when her wax seal stamp arrived with the wrong engraving.

The former X-Factor star has had a lot of DIY success stories over the years, so during a HELLO! interview we quizzed her on what she would be crafting on the day.

She revealed: "I'm not making everything! I'm getting lots from little businesses and a couple of big businesses and then I'm just making the little things that I enjoy. I'm making table numbers and I'm going to stamp my invites."

Which is when the mum-of-three confessed to an order error whereby her bespoke wax seal stamp arrived with filler text on it.

"I had a bit of a disaster. I bought a wax seal that you could personalise, so I added a 'J' and an 'S' and underneath there was another option to put your design in, but I'd assumed I had already done that in the first box, so I now have a wax seal that says, 'J, S, Your design goes here'," explained Stacey.

She went on to say: "I'm going to try and file it off with a nail file and see if that works. But that really put a dampener on my stamps!"

Stacey has been eyeing up dresses from Berta 

While she is yet to try on wedding dresses, the presenter has been looking online already for inspiration, confessing: "I'm obsessed with the brand Berta. Everything's made out of glitter. I don't want the dress to be all glittery, but I definitely want sparkle!" We can't wait to see what she chooses!
