"Because of lockdown and restrictions, I haven't been able to have any fittings," Stacey said. "I've been speaking to a lady who makes dresses and I've sent her my measurements. I've been sending her ideas, but that's all I can do for now. When we're allowed to go in for fittings, I'll try on different shapes.

"I don't know exactly what I want and she recommended I try on different styles, because the most likely scenario is that I'll try on a style I would never normally choose and actually love that one the most.

"There isn't much I can do at this stage – we might even have to do FaceTime fittings and then hope for the best on the day!"

Stacey is dreaming of a tulle dress with capped sleeves

The bride-to-be added: "But I do think I'd like capped sleeves and a lot of tulle, I don't like thick material, and I'd want something fitted but not corseted like Bridgerton, although I am obsessed with Bridgerton!

"I'm also 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!"

Stacey and her fiancé Joe first met in Australia in 2010, after the former X Factor contestant was crowned queen of the jungle on I'm a Celebrity and Joe – who won the show in 2008 – was presenting the spin-off programme. Friendship turned to romance in 2016 and now the couple are planning to tie the knot in July following Joe's Christmas Eve proposal last year.

The couple share one-year-old son Rex while Stacey, 31, is also the proud mum to Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, from past relationships. Joe also has son Harry, 13, from a previous relationship.

"We've got four boys and they will all just be our page boys," Stacey told HELLO!. "We didn't want to make one the best man or give one a special role. But I would like them all to walk me down the aisle with my dad."
