'I'll cook – if Stacey washes up!' teases Joe Swash as he reveals plans for 'exciting' first Christmas at Pickle Cottage

STACEY Solomon and Joe Swash revealed plans for their first Christmas in their dream home after welcoming their baby daughter Rose in October.

The couple have spent the year doing up the incredible Essex mansion where they also raise son Rex, two, and Stacey's kids Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine. 

Stacey, 32, spoke about their plans for their excitement for the 25th, as she took part in a Loose Women Christmas special.

She said: "This is such an exciting time for Rex.

"He's two-and-a-half and it's the first Christmas he's had where he's like 'Wow'.

"The older boys are excited for him as well. It's so lovely and nice to see them all together getting excited. And it's just nice to be in the house."

Joe added: "It's our first Christmas in our new house, it's the first Christmas with our new baby, and it's the first Christmas we're going to be as one big unit. We're going to have a really lovely, lovely time."

The couple joked about who will do the cooking on Christmas Day, with Joe admitting he has not cooked much since appearing on Celebrity MasterChef earlier this year but adding that he is "saving it for the Christmas dinner".

Stacey revealed she has not slept well since their daughter was born, adding: "I've put a hell of a lot of make-up on for this interview and you can't even see it – it sinks into my skin now.

"She sleeps like a newborn – they're up all night really, aren't they? But she is good. She's content, which is nice.

"She's amazing, she's really lovely. I can't stop staring at her. Even when she does sleep, I don't get any sleep because I'm just staring at her."

The TV star admitted that, with so many boys in the house, she sometimes forgets Rose is a girl and accidentally says "Pass him over".

And doting dad Joe said he has had to learn to be "more gentle and delicate" around their newborn rather than the typical "boisterous" attitude he has with the boys.

The Loose Women Christmas Special airs at 10am on Christmas Eve on ITV and ITV Hub.
