She added: “I’m thoroughly enjoying this belly laugh.”

The couple were all smiles this morning as they cuddled up with their baby son Rex.

Joe and his pro partner, Alex Murphy, will perform in this Sunday’s final after wowing fans and judges last weekend.

Joe performed an emotional dance to Simply Red’s Stars, which was played at his late dad’s funeral.

He also wowed fans when he ripped open his shirt to reveal a six-pack during a performance to Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? by Rod Stewart.

Joe has a ripped body despite previously admitting he’s put on weight during DOI training thanks to snacking.

He previously told us: “I haven’t touched the gym. I’m not great at training either.

“I’ve put weight on. I went to see Sharon, the physio lady, because I thought I felt a bit heavy and I’m a couple of pound heavier than I was when I started. It’s not muscle!”
