Stacey Solomon has admitted she's a "big baby" when fiancé Joe Swash is away and hates being left alone with the children. The pregnant Loose Women star has therefore asked her older sister Jemma and her three nieces to stay at her Essex home, dubbed 'Pickle Cottage', so she doesn't feel lonely.

Stacey's nieces are also living with her at the moment

No doubt the duo will have plenty to keep them busy seeing as Stacey is currently undertaking a painstaking renovation of her £1.2million country abode.

The star, who is currently expecting a baby girl with partner Joe, bought the Tudor-style home in March and has been slowly putting her own unique stamp on the property.
