Stacey Solomon helped mum-of-three Aimee say goodbye to a baby chair which held great significance.
Stacey Solomon appeared in yet another episode of Sort Your Life Out on Wednesday evening, where she and her team of experts helped the Daniels Family clear out their cluttered home.
During the show, Stacey got to know husband and wife Stuart and Aimee as well as their three children – Darcie, Rex and Mollie – and formed a close bond with the family.
She offered support to NHS nurse Aimee who especially struggled to say goodbye to one special item in particular; a baby chair.
Throughout the episode, viewers learn that Aimee and Stuart's daughter Mollie has Down Syndrome and that when she was only 10-weeks-old had to undergo open-heart surgery.
When Mollie started to get better, the couple bought a pink baby chair which they have kept for years, despite their daughter having grown out of it.
During an emotional scene, Aimee explains: "Her heart just didn't want to work anymore. It was life or death, if she didn't have the surgery she wasn't going to make it. There was also a chance that even with the surgery she wasn't going to make it."
The mother described it as "one of the worst experiences ever".
Aimee's husband Stuart reflected on the time, saying: "Aimee never came home, she was there [the hospital] for six weeks. She never did anything else apart from be Mollie's nurse and Mollie's mum. She's just amazing."
The chair therefore held a special place in Aimee's heart, although she did admit it was probably best to recycle it now that her children have all grown out of it.
Offering some advice, Stacey told Aimee: "My advice, you don't have to take it, she has grown out of it, so maybe now is the time to say goodbye."
Aimee then decided, after some deliberation, to let go of the chair and put it into the recycling pile.
Stacey comforted the emotional mum, telling her: "You've done such an amazing job, this [the chair] hasn't done that job for you."
Later in the show Stacey revealed that while she was proud of Aimee for letting the chair go, she wanted to do something special for the mum so she could hold on to an element of it.
At the end of the show, when Aimee and Stuart look around their clutter-free and reorganised home, the mum spots the material from the chair on a teddy bear sat on her dressing table.
Aimee was left in tears by the beautiful gesture, and Stacey looked very emotional as well.
