Another agreed, adding: "Bit early to put a Christmas tree up."

But others defended the couple's choice, with their comments including: "It’s never too early to do something that makes you happy," "Beautiful tree," and: "In 2020 if it helps then what's the problem?"

Stacey is no stranger to unconventional choices when it comes to home decorating.

She recently surprised fans with her approach to renovating her stairs, when she pulled up the carpet using only a Star Wars bottle opener.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the 2018 Strictly contestant showed her loyal following a picture of the stairs with the carpet half removed.

She accompanied the photo with the witty comment: "Watches Homes Under The Hammer once…"

The clips that followed showed the hallway carpet being tackled and an 'after' shot revealing the original floorboards.

Despite her strange method, the final results looked great.
