Stacey Solomon gives Loose Women an update on her hairy legs

Romantic gesture went a bit wrong...

You’ve got to hand it to Stacey Solomon – she’s a woman of her word, alright!

Earlier this month, the former X-Factor star revealed on Loose Women that she wasn’t going to shave her legs “until Christmas”.

And on today’s show, the 28-year-old revealed that her grooming ban is still going strong.

However, Stacey confessed that she was left red-faced after she decided to surprise her boyfriend, Joe Swash, in Australia recently.

Joe is presenting the I’m A Celebrity spin-off Extra Camp on ITV2, which means he’s having to spend a lot of time Down Under.

So Stacey dreamed up a sweet plan to surprise the former EastEnders star, 35, by rocking up at his temporary pad unannounced.

However, the Essex girl forgot all about her unshaven limbs, spoiling her romantic scheme somewhat.

She told fellow panellists Andrea McLean, Linda Robson and Kaye Adams: “I had my hair done, my tan done, but these were left completely!”

Despite the scary (or should that be hairy?) realisation, Joe didn’t seem to mind, and later on the lovebirds posed for a selfie, in which they compared furry legs.

As the Loose Women ‘admired’ the shot, Stacey told her co-stars: “I’m hairier than Joe, that’s the reality of the situation.

“I’m lazy with shaving, but this is the worst it’s ever been!”

And she reckons that her hairy heroics could pave the way for other women to shun their razors.

She explained: “It shows you don’t have to be this skinny, hair-free thing, and that your boyfriend’s not going to leave you if you let your hair grow. Joe just turns the lights off – it’s fine!”

The Loose Women were sporting wacky accessories on today’s show as they celebrated Andrea’s ‘hen do’. The 48-year-old is all set to marry her fiance, businessman Nick Feeney, next week.

But despite bonding over their stubble, mum-of-two Stacey revealed that she’s not quite ready to walk down the aisle with Joe yet.

She’s been dating the actor since January 2016 but explained: “For me, I’m not sure I want that contract just yet, but I really want the day and I want the dress.”
