Stacey Solomonhas shared some pre-wedding jitters, three months before marrying fiancé Joe Swash at their family home, Pickle Cottage.

Taking to Instagram, Stacey, who has just landed a second series of her BBC show Sort Your Life Out, told her followers that she's planning to 'walk down the aisle' in her garden through a wooden walkway that has been the centre of many of her Instagram posts. The beautiful walkway is entwined with branches and flowers - but it is pretty long.

Captioning a video, Stacey said, "This morning I had to meet with the caterers, florists & everyone in between because I almost forgot we are getting married in three months time.

"We are on the last part now. The aisle. And my sister just put a load of candles in my kitchen jars at the bottom where we are going to stand and I am crying.

"My whole stomach is turning over. And for some reason I’m so nervous."

She then asked her followers to solve one of her wedding dilemmas, "Should we just get married half way down the aisle? Because it’s such a long walk.

"Is it too long? I’m scared to walk that far in front of everyone. I think I’ll just end up falling over or laughing at how long it’s taking me to get down the isle. But I love the end of the arches. Help!"

Stacey added, "It’s quite a long walk. It’s quite a way to go! I don’t know if I trust myself!"

She then shared responses from her fans, who all encouraged her to walk down the whole way as "it's her day".

After her fiancé Joe Swash proposed on Christmas Eve 2020 ,Stacey Solomon is getting stuck in with her wedding arrangements, and decided on the wedding venue pretty quick.

Taking to social media to share the exciting news, Stacey told followers, "So after lots of thinking, wondering, phone calls and then crazy rearranging we were so excited to hear tonight that we can definitely have our wedding ceremony at home 😭🥺."

They postponed the wedding in 2021 after announcing that Stacey was pregnant with daughter, Rose, halting proceedings so that "all of the kids can be there".

Yoga time!

They sure know how to have fun. Stacey, Leighton and Zachary enjoyed some relaxing yoga.

Showing off the "woodland walk" - a pergola-type structure down the centre of her new garden - the 31 year old explained that she would like to do their vows there, and have the reception under the "old barn."

Stacey, Joe and her three sons (Zachary, Leighton and Rex) moved to "Pickle Cottage" in 2021. The property, which has a huge expanse of land and its own swimming pool, is a Tudor-style build in the Essex countryside.

Taking fans round the plot after receiving the news that their wedding could indeed go ahead at home, the Loose Women panellist wrote, "We are having a little minute walking around the garden with the boys thinking where things might be 😭.

"I honestly can not wait to hear your advice, your wedding stories and share this whole adventure with you all 😭😭😭."

She wrote, "Today we went for a walk in the woods... Like we always do 🤍. But it didn't look the same...

"He asked me to marry him and after crying for what felt like a very long time... I said yes 🤍💍."
