Sharing a picture of her food preparation, the Loose Women panellist wrote: “Going to attempt to have a BBQ in the freezing cold because that’s what Zach’s asked for for his birthday.”

Stacey has also been busy tidying the house ahead of the arrival of some more family members.

Earlier in the day, the mum-of-three posted a photo of her son’s presents and birthday balloons.

The family had planned to go to Butlin's but cancelled after Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked people to cancel non-essential travel.

Meanwhile, Stacey has been putting plans in place ahead of home-schooling her two eldest sons.

She took to Instagram to reveal she was preparing for the coming weeks when her boys would be out of school amid the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

"Going to make a template of a timetable so the boys have a bit of structure," she shared.

"Not starting until 10am and the pink squares are mum time," she added, with laughing emojis.

Sharing a complete time table filled in, she told fans that it wasn't "the proper one but its mocked up so you get a rough idea".

The timetable included curriculum work that schools will be sharing with parents to help them teach their children, as well as free play, outdoor learning and craft time.

"The only things set in stone are pink and yellow," she then joked, referencing the lunch hour break and her own personal "mum time".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Wednesday that Britain's schools would be ordered to close from Friday with all exams cancelled in the war on coronavirus.

The shutdown, until summer at the earliest, is the Government’s most drastic move yet to slow down the pandemic.
