The DIY queen said she had planned to go to the hairdresser to get the colour professionally done, but decided to tackle it herself when she couldn't get an appointment. Sharing a hilarious photo of the process, Stacey pulled a face for the camera with her hair bundled on top of her head and red dye on her forehead.

The Loose Women star revealed what she learned from her DIY hair dye

"Today I learned...1. Don't wear white.

"2. Do it inside the shower - this stuff stains. Bring a mirror.

"3. Don't let it spill on your eyebrow and leave it there. It will dye that too." Wise words, Stacey! 

Speaking of the finished result, she said: "It's a little bright but I think I love it. Plus I'm sure it'll settle after a few washes."

Stacey made the big change in time for date night with Joe

"I haven’t been out and felt like I’ve looked human for a long time so I may have gone overboard but lashes didn’t feel like enough. You only live once. And I don’t want to live it always looking like a foot. 99% of the time I don’t mind but ever so often it’s nice to feel nice.

"P.S yes rose came with us on date night. I haven’t mastered the art of expressing yet (it’s such a skill) and also I don’t want to leave her yet but I do want to leave the bedroom."

Mrs Hinch was among the first to comment: "Beautiful, and hair like a real-life Ariel. I’ll happily be flounder?" while Brenda Edwards remarked: "This hair colour is simply gorgeous on you."
