Stacey Solomon looked incredible as she stepped out in a white lacy outfit for the BAFTA Television Awards on Sunday afternoon. The Loose Women panelist beamed alongside her fiance de ella Joe Swash who looked dapper in a black tuxedo suit and bow tie.

“Here we go… Off to the Baftas with my best friend,” she wrote proudly. “Couldn’t do any of it without you. Never felt so nervous and proud… No matter what I’m so grateful to even have been nominated. Never ever ever did I think I’d be saying that.”

Stacey, who has been nominated for her BBC show Sort Your Life Out, recently revealed to fans that she had chosen her wedding dress just months before she walks down the aisle. The happy couple are preparing to say ‘I do’ in July.
Stacey and fellow TV presenter and former EastEnders actor Joe got engaged on Christmas Eve 2020 during a family woodland walk. The pair were due to wed last year but their big day was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Stacey falling pregnant with their daughter Rose who was born on Stacey’s 32nd birthday in October.
Stacey previously revealed they’ll tie the knot in the back garden of their Essex home. Last month Stacey took to Instagram to share a glimpse at a variety of stunning gowns as she looked for the perfect dress for her impending nuptials.
Sharing videos to her Instagram Stories set to a variety of romantic songs, Stacey told her millions of followers: “Good Morning from me and some words I never imagined I’d be saying… I’m picking my wedding dress today.” The clips showed the gorgeous dresses as well as glimpses of Stacey trying them on.
She continued: “Honestly I’ve had the best day ever. I’ll be honest I’ve been putting this off. This is the first time I’ve tried anything on I don’t know why but it was making me feel I’m funny.” The TV star then joked: “I think because I’m not the Virgin Mary or something. It was making me feel all weird.”
Stacey explained that she decided to try on some dresses at home before being joined by her sister, Jemma, after the school run. “And I’ve never felt more special than today,” she added.
She then took to her main Instagram page to share a mirror selfie of herself in a beaded gown with a sweetheart neckline and a veil, looking emotional with her eyes clearly puffy from shedding a few tears. “Today I Choose My Wedding Dress,” Stacey said. “And I never want to forget this feeling…
“I’ve been putting it off I think because the more I got excited about it the more silly I felt for some reason… I started feeling really conscious about not being, well I don’t know. I wouldn’t have done life any other way EVER I’m so grateful for how it turned out and I genuinely believe everything happens for a reason.
“But I suppose sometimes those old fashioned narratives make you feel that way don’t they? I decided to try my dresses on, at home with just me not making a “thing” of it. But it turns out it felt like the hugest “thing” ever. My sister dropped the kids back from school and popped up and we both ended up emotional messes.”
