STACEY Solomon fears she might not be able to try on her wedding dress until the day she marries Joe Swash.
The Eastenders star proposed to Stacey, 31, on Christmas Eve in the woods near their house in Essex and they hope to tie the knot in July.

Loose Women star Stacey opened up about their plans for their big day and said they’re determined to go ahead with the ceremony.
But she admitted lockdown restrictions have meant that certain details may need to be ironed out at the last minute.
The star told The Mirror’s Notebook: “We’re just hoping it goes ahead. There’s certain family we really want to be there, so we’re hoping in July it can go ahead and those people can be there, and won’t end up missing it …
“At least we’re coming out of lockdown and you can get into shops to look at stuff… That would be so nice – and to be able to try on a wedding dress. Imagine, I might not be able to try it on until the day!”

But the organised Tap To Tidy author has found a dressmaker and has an idea of what she wants, sharing looks that she loves.
She added: “I’ve sent some ideas but the lady recommended trying different stuff on. She said, ‘The things you think will suit you will end up being the things you hate.’
“She took my measurements and said when she sees me she’ll pull a lot of stuff out, then I’ll decide on the shape and the style.”
The mum-of-three, 31, revealed earlier this year that they have their heart set on marrying in 2021 as their “loved ones won’t be around forever”.
And the star has wasted no time searching for venues.

Answering a question about whether she’d ever get married abroad, Stacey shared a photo of a converted church with a glass ceiling – but didn’t confirm if this was her venue.
She said: “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 my 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.”
Even though the proposal came as a huge surprise to Stacey, the star said her and Joe would often talk about marriage.
In April 2018, Stacey told her Loose Women co-stars that she wanted a “Disney fairytale-style” wedding.
She joked: “I’m hoping for birds to get me dressed!”
