The Loose Women revealed her latest home project with fans, taking to Instagram to share a video of herself adding wooden panels to the wall of what will be her daughter's nursery. The 31-year-old then got crafty with pastel paint, stripping the cottage of its cream and wooden beams and replacing it with a pink wash.

"I've been working on this forever. I've had so many issues with bowing and wonky walls… " revealed Stacey, who has been renovating the home she shares with fiancé Joe Swash and her three sons, Zachary, Leighton, and two-year-old Rex.

"I still need to do one more coat on the dark skirting, but although it 's not perfect because of the old walls I'm so proud of it and happy," Stacey penned. "It makes me so so excited to have at least finished one wall in here. I bought the mirror from Amazon and I think it completes the lights that were already there."

The doting mother later filmed herself in the garden having a cuddle with fiancé Joe, who was also sweetly cradling son Rex at the time. Responding to fan comments, the pregnant star said: "I'm sitting in the garden reading your messages and so many of you are asking "does Joe ever do any of the DIY?" Will he? Yes. Can he? Absolutely not," Stacey laughed.

The EastEnders star then pitched in: "It's whether if you want it to stay up or not," admitting home hacks are not his forte.

"He's an amazing daddy, chef, all-round general human, but DIY is not for Joe," Stacey sweetly shared.

Upon announcing her pregnancy with her fourth child earlier this year, Stacey revealed that her and Joe had decided to postpone their upcoming wedding, as the couple didn't want their unborn child to be absent from their wedding photos.

She explained: "We are going to move it back a bit, maybe not until next year but we both said we'd be a bit gutted to look back at pictures and all of our babies weren't there."
