The TV star initially apologised to fans for not updating her social media platform as she wrote: ‘Sorry for the radio silence… I had everything planned ready to go. I knew exactly what I was doing… And then…’ (sic).

Mother-of-three Stacey went on to explain how she, Joe, Rex and her older sons Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, embarked on their regular morning stroll as she added: ‘Today we went for a walk in the woods… Like we always do.’ (sic)

The media personality added that the family started to go on walks with their children when they first moved in with each other two years ago, and credited their outings to ‘some of the best memories of her life’.

Moments later, the singer confessed she was left ‘blubbering’ as she recalled the moment she stumbled across a stunning floral arrangement of white roses.

Stacey and Joe met on the set for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! when the artist was crowned Queen of the Jungle and the former EastEnders star hosted spin-off series Extra Camp in 2010, a year after he took home the title.

The duo confirmed their relationship in January 2016, with auburn-haired beauty stating at the time: ‘It’s going really well… we’re having fun, spending time together and getting to know each other.’

They announced they were expecting their first child together in February 2019, and welcomed baby Rex three months later.

In November 2019, the pair had sparked speculation they secretly tied the knot as they took part in a family beach photoshoot on the beach in Maldives.

But it seems Joe had been intending to propose to Stacey for quite a while as he recently blamed lockdown for delaying his plans.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the thespian said: ‘It will come in time. We’ve had so many things we need to deal with, the kids, lockdown – I will get round to it eventually. This has just reminded me.

‘Stacey has the wedding all planned in her head – I’m not going to have a say in any of it.

‘Before you know it will be organised and Stacey will make it beautiful, and I’m fine with her taking it all on. A happy wife means a happy life.’

Since getting together, the celebs have amassed huge followings on their social media accounts by giving fans a glimpse of their hectic everyday lives.

And their popularity has sparked interest from TV bosses eager to give them their own reality show. 

But Joe said an Osbournes’ style fly-on-the-wall series is unlikely as the pair are targeting a co-hosting stint on ITV juggernaut This Morning, following in the footsteps of other real-life presenting couples Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan and Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

The former soap star said: ‘This Morning would be perfect for us. It’s a huge show and would be a great learning curve.

‘We’d be a mixture between Phil and Holly when they get the giggles and Eamonn and Ruth when she gets the hump with him. You’d be watching rows and all sorts.’
