Stacey Solomon’s Renovation Rescue begins tonight, showing that the presenter is definitely in her home improvement era.

If you’re not watching our Stacey clearing up clutter on BBC’s Sort Your Life Out, then you can now catch her on Channel 4 chatting to homeowners attempting to transform their space.

Anyone who follows her on Instagram will know that she’s qualified after spending the last few years on a one-woman mission to make Pickle Cottage even more beautiful armed with a paintbrush, a glue gun, and a dream.

The six episodes, with Stacey, 34, at the helm, have extra gravitas as Hello Sunshine has produced them – the media company founded by Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon.

It’s been quite the journey for Stacey with her public life beginning on The X Factor in 2009, and taking her to Loose Women, before starting a new chapter as a social media star, and TV’s hottest property.

Let’s take a look at her life outside of TV, and her career so far…

Stacey Solomon’s home

Stacey and her husband Joe Swash, 42, moved into their incredible house, reportedly worth over £1million, in 2021.

The Essex abode, which is surrounded by over two acres of land, was sweetly named after Stacey’s nickname for her children, and she’s made the space perfect for her family’s needs.

She may be doing well for herself but that hasn’t stopped Stacey from getting her hands dirty with some DIY. For every project, she has documented the process on Instagram, or in her book, Tap to Tidy. We’ve seen her jet wash her swimming pool area, stencil her children’s rooms, and even surprise Joe with his own ‘den’. We’re just wondering when Stacey sleeps.

She doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon either, recently confessing: ‘I don’t think I’ll ever be done DIYing… Although don’t tell Joe that. It’s almost therapeutic for me.’

After months of getting everything to their taste, Pickle Cottage was used as a venue for a special occasion…

Stacey Solomon’s family life

On July 24 2022, Joe and Stacey said ‘I do’ in front of their loved ones after seven years of dating at the place they feel happiest.

Announcing their nuptials, Stacey wrote: ‘🕊Forever 🕊 Me and My Husband 😭 I don’t think I will ever get used to saying that. It all feels like a dream.’

She then quoted Dr. Suess: ‘You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.’

On their wedding date, the couple already had two children together Rex, four, and Rose, two, but there was an extra guest in Stacey’s stomach unbeknownst to them. Although, it was a surprise they couldn’t have been happier.

‘So grateful & can not believe I’m saying this… Another little pickle is on the way… 😭 A HUGE surprise, but one that we are so thankful for,’ wrote Stacey.

Belle was born in February last year, with Stacey sharing: ‘We can’t wait to love you forever and ever we are so grateful we get to be your family.’

Their three children together also have older siblings – Stacey’s sons Zachary, 16, Leighton, 11, and Joe’s son Harry, 16 – making up their beautiful blended family.

There are two more beloved members of their clan – pups Teddy and Peanut.

Also in her tight-knit family is her sister Jemma Solomon, who runs the business The Label Laby, which was invested in by Lord Alan Sugar. Stacey can often be seen attaching her sister’s items to her pantry jars.

Stacey has a very useful family as her other sister Samantha Stone is a personal trainer, who has been helping her utilise Pickle Cottage’s garage gym, while her dad David Solomon is a photographer and often captures beautiful family photos which Stacey shares with her 5.9 million followers on Instagram.

Stacey Solomon’s journey from The X Factor to TV star

Stacey first burst onto our screens in 2009 on the talent competition, The X Factor, where she made it to the final. From the moment she told Simon Cowell ‘Hiya’ British TV was forever changed.

When asked if she was good at singing, our humble Queen replied: ‘I hope so, you may not think so.’ Stacey, then 19, got four yeses from judges Simon, Louis Walsh, Danni Osbourne and Cheryl Cole, after singing What A Wonderful World.

Although her vocal range was impressive, her personality shone equally as bright leading to more TV work.

At the time, Stacey was a single mum after having her first child as a teenager. Speaking about becoming a parent at a young age, she said: ‘I haven’t done anything that thousands haven’t done’ and spoke of her privilege of having such a supportive family.

She now ‘barely remembers’ life before motherhood, but does remember the judgements she’d get.

‘I do remember all of the looks I’d get & all of the things that people would say when they saw a “child raising a child”. I can’t believe I am now a mummy of 5,’ she wrote on Instagram.

She continued in the defiant caption: ‘And all I can say is, not one of those judgments or opinions back then were true.

‘No matter how real they felt I look at each of them now and I have never felt so proud. They are the kindest most amazing people and I was a part of that.’

The following year, she appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here and became Queen of the Jungle. The person who placed the crown on her head was none other than her future husband, Joe, as he was the reigning champ.

She went on to appear on The Jump, where celebrities learnt winter sports (and Stacey ended up in a relationship with Jackass co-star, Steve-O – the streets never forget), and was eventual host of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Extra Camp – a spin-off to the main show.

By 2016, she was a regular panellist on Loose Women, where she used that platform to create her own personal brand on social media.

She is currently the most-followed ITV presenter, with followers enjoying insights into her life as a mum-of-five, her friendship with fellow influencer Mrs Hinch, and watching her organise every inch of her home. A 60-second reel of Stacey restocking the snack cupboard is surprisingly entertaining, and we won’t be told otherwise.

Stacey often uses Instagram to celebrate small businesses and has recently begun investing her own money into them. She began with Rehab, who sell vegan and cruelty-free hair products. Someone needs to get Stacey on Dragons’ Den – she’s certainly got the funds as it was recently reported she’s almost taking home the average yearly salary of UK residents every single week, a whopping £27,000.

Although Stacey occasionally pops up on Loose Women (her last appearance was five months ago), she’s mainly focused on her own shows including Sort Your Life Out which recently won a Royal Television Society award, Crafty Christmas, and her latest offering, Stacey Solomon’s Renovation Rescue.

Stacey will meet people in a tough position with their renovations, and help them realise their dream, by showing them how to tackle jobs themselves and save money.

‘We don’t just want to come in and ‘fix’. We want to teach people the skills they need and prove that even on a tight budget you can achieve your dream house,’ she shared.

Speaking about the show’s connection to Reese, 48, she said: ‘It’s amazing… I love what Reese Witherspoon, who founded Hello Sunshine, is trying to do in the industry – they want to shine a light on women. It’s an absolute honour to be working with the team.’

Stacey Solomon’s Renovation Rescue begins tonight at 9pm on Channel 4
