Mum-to-be Stacey Solomon has revealed how her first date with partner Joe Swash took a disastrous – and disgusting – turn.
The Loose Women star recalls in her book Happily Imperfect how she “wasn’t in the right frame of mind” for starting up a relationship after they hit it off during an appearance on a TV show.
However, it seems ex EastEnders star and presenter Joe was determined to woo Stacey, 29 – and eventually convinced her to go out with him.
Unfortunately, Stacey suffered from a few pre-date jitters – and took her pals’ advice to turn to a little bit of Dutch courage to help her relax a little too much to heart.
In an extract from her book published by The Sun’s Fabulous Online, the former X Factor singer shares how she hit the vino a little harder than she possibly intended.
“I thought Joe was really attractive and kind-hearted but I wasn’t interested in having a relationship,” she details about their first significant meeting.
Noting how she found his persistence “attractive”, Stacey tells how she arrived at Joe’s house with a bottle in hand to help soothe her nervousness.
She reveals: “I thought, ‘Please just get drunk with me and we can forget this awkward moment ever happened’. But Joe isn’t a big drinker. So I was just sitting there drinking this wine, trying to get through the evening. And then the wine ran out.”

Having gone out on a booze run to pick up more plonk, Stacey adds she challenged Joe to race up the stairs to his apartment.
But having had a drink or two, it appears Stacey was woozier than she realised – leading to a mortifying faux pas.
Stacey continues: “When I got to the top, not only did I feel sick but I also realised how unfit I was. He opened the door and I just went, ‘hurrrrrrrr,’ and vomited all this red wine all over his white walls.”
Luckily, as Stacey hilariously notes, Joe must have really liked her to see her again!
