Stacey Solomon wants her sons to walk her down the aisle when she marries Joe Swash
The ‘Loose Women’ star hasn’t set a date for her wedding yet but she’s already making plans and is keen for Zachary, 12, and eight-year-old Leighton – who she has from previous relationships – as well as her and her fiancé’s 21-month-old son Rex, and Joe’s child Harry, 13, to play important roles in the big day

Speaking to the current issue of HELLO! magazine, she said: “We didn’t want to make one the best man or give one a special role.

“But I would like them to all walk me down the aisle with my dad.”
And the couple’s dogs will also be part of the celebrations.
She added: “Our dogs Theo and Peanut will also be involved.
“They’re getting suits and bow ties made. I made a wedding planning book and a whole double page is dedicated to the dogs.”
The 31-year-old singer has already had one wedding disaster when it comes to her invites.
She explained: “I’m not making everything, just the little things I enjoy; the table numbers and I’m going to stamp my invites.
“I had a bit of a disaster though with my wax seal stamp when I was personalising it online. It’s come back and says, ‘J., S., Your design goes here.’ I’m going to try and file it off with a nail file and see if that works. But that really put a dampener on my stamps."
Although coronavirus restrictions are expected to be loosened in June, Stacey and Joe plan to go ahead with their wedding plans, whatever the guidance is at the time.
She said: “There are people in our lives whom we don’t think we will, unfortunately, have much time left with. If worst comes to worst and we can only have a wedding of six, then we’ll get married with those special people.
“Joe lost his nan during lockdown and you see what the funeral is like, you see how many people miss out, and it’s just not a nice situation to be in.”
