Close pal and fellow cleaning fanatic, Sophie Hinchliffe aka Mrs Hinch also commented on the post.  "Such a little Handsomes! Absolutely beautiful! Cuteness overload!!" she wrote.

Stacey opened up more about the new arrival on Instagram Stories, where she revealed that she came to adopt the pup after his unforeseen circumstances meant his original family could not have him.

"It was not a decision we took lightly… I haven't had another dog since I got Theo ten years ago so we have spent the last few weeks getting to know him," she said, adding: "And he has settled in so well. He is so loved."

The Loose Women star recently revealed that she and fiance Joe plan on walking down the aisle this summer, following their romantic Christmas Eve engagement. In response to a fan asking when they plan to tie the knot, Stacey shared: We are hoping to get married end of summer. We know we won't be allowed many people but still unclear on exactly how many.

"We will most likely need to have a table for every household but again, not clear with vaccine progress etc..."

She later went on to explain that due to COVID, it might not even happen after all. "It may all be stopped like so many people's days have been over the last year. Bit planning and making bits makes me happy and trying to think positively about the future is always nice," she confessed.
