Why does Joe Swash wear a ring on his wedding finger?
Stacey and Joe aren't married, but he has been spotted wearing a band on his wedding finger, sparking secret wedding rumours.
On a recent family trip to The Maldives, Joe and Stacey posed with Rex and Stacey's sons from previous relationships - Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, on the beach - and fans spotted the ring.

🖤 Sunsets and smiles 🖤I finally got a picture of us all 😬 had the best night with my favourite humans. Watching the sun go down, playing add on the beach, stuffing our faces and dancing to our favourite songs. Boys I love you more than you could ever know... Too the moon and stars and back again times infinity 😂🖤 •For everyone asking, we are in @dhigalimaldives •The boys suits are from @paisleyoflondon •gifted•
Stacey hit back at the rumours on her Instagram stories, saying: "We just need to clear this up, I didn't realise while we were away that lots of people had messaged and commented that they thought that we had got married."
She added: "I am only just reading through them now, thinking oh my god, this has gone a bit weird."
"We are not married.

Daddy’s home today and Rex just found out he’s been in the Maldives for the last week 😂😂 For the first day or two when Joe isn’t here it’s absolute bliss, but that quickly wears off and I can’t wait for him to be back with us all, play wrestling, giving us all the cuddles and doing a terrible job of washing up 😂 Not sure how he’s going to feel about the state of our hallway though 😂😂
"We wouldn't secretly get married anyway as I would be so over the moon about it that I would be telling everyone. And all our families would be there too, Joe's family and my family would all be there if we were going to get married. I don't even think you can get married in the Maldives unless you are Maldivian?"
Joe wears the rings because they belonged to Stacey's late dad.
She said: "Joe's rings that he wears are not wedding rings.
"They are my dad's rings, he passed away when I was a kid and I wear them for good luck. And I am sure that once we get married I will replace them with a wedding ring."
