STACEY Solomon has given fans an insight into her wedding planning as she completed her unique globe guestbook.
The 31-year-old took to Instagram on Saturday night to show her early wedding preparations and filmed as she got crafty.
Mum-of-three Stacey, who got engaged to fiancee Joe Swash, 38, on Christmas Eve, has already started prepping for her big day.
She showed fans as she transformed her sons' unloved globe into a beautiful "guest book" for family and friends to write on.
"I've seen so many people make cute guest books out of globes," the Loose Women panellist wrote. "I'm going to attempt to make one for our wedding.
"I've stolen the boys' globe. They don't need it right now. As soon as we're allowed to venture out of the house I'll buy them another one."
Stacey went on to film as she took the globe apart for the transformation, telling her followers she had "butterflies".
"This really gave me butterflies making this," she wrote, later adding: "I actually feel really teary… It's so ridiculous, but I love it so much."
The creative mum spray painted the base gold, removed the map-style covering from the globe and placed stickers on it saying "forever begins today".
She showed off the finished product, which also lit up like a lamp, adding that it made her "heart feel full" to look at.
Fans quickly flooded her DMs with messages, with Stacey adding that she "got goosebumps" from one in particular that read: "The equator line is yours and Joe's families coming together."
She thanked her fans, adding: "You have no idea how your messages brighten people's days. I love reading them."
Stacey and husband-to-be Joe Swash got engaged on Christmas Eve on a romantic forest walk.
The newly-engaged couple have been together since 2015, and moved in together three years later.
Their son Rex Toby Francis Swash was born in May 2019 and was welcomed into the blended family, which includes older brothers Leighton, eight, and Zachary, 12 on mum’s side and 13-year-old Harry on his dad’s.
Stacey and Joe have already revealed they plan on getting wed in 2021, knowing their loved ones "won't be around forever".
She wrote to fans: “I used to think I wanted to run away and elope, but after losing family members this year, I could not feel more opposite…
“One of the main reasons we’d love to get married as soon as we can is because there’s special people in our lives that will not be around forever.
“And I would do anything to share our day with them. Especially knowing already how much we will miss those that can’t be there.
“I’ve found me dream venue, we are just trying to see if the dates work and if it’s possible and I can’t wait to take you there with us when/if we are allowed."
