She also admitted that she hadn't always been confident about her work, writing: "I just have to say. There were so many moments through making this I felt it wasn't good enough, I wasn't smart enough."

The 31-year-old continued: "But seeing it in real life, touching the pages, seeing every heart I drew, every pattern, every illustration, every small business I asked to help, I've never felt so proud of something I've made.

"Here it is. My hobbies, heart and soul. On paper."

Stacey thrilled fans last month when she announced that she was releasing Tap to Tidy.

She beamed in a photo posted to Instagram which showed her with an advance copy of the book.

The presenter wrote: "Thanks to your kindness, support, love and encouragement, I was given the chance to write a book and I said yes...

"The truth is if it wasn't for you I would never have had the confidence to even do it. And I am so grateful for you all I can't even begin to put it into words. So here we go."
