She said: "When I moved in with Joe, it was sort of 'oh gosh this is scary and weird' and you get that funny feeling in your tummy.

Stacey has revealed they moved into a new home on her birthday, when she posted a picture to Instagram. 

She wrote: "Was imagining being surrounded by thousands of pink balloons when I woke up on a four poster bed.

While they didn’t end up dating until 2016, Joe has since admitted that he fancied Stacey all those years ago but the timing wasn’t right. 

How long have Stacey and Joe been together? 

Stacey and Joe have been dating for more than four years, after initially sparking romance rumours back in January 2016.

Fans began speculating the pair were an item after they were seen enjoying romantic weekend away together at Champney’s Henlow Heath Spa in Bedfordshire. 

Looking happier than ever, Stacey then posted a picture of herself wearing a bathrobe at the spa, with the caption: “such a lucky girl.”

Stacey has often joked about taking their relationship to the next level and even posted videos to Instagram of herself wearing a wedding dress. 

Are Stacey and Joe married? 

After recently sparking speculation they got engaged, Stacey and Joe were forced to deny the rumours

She told her Loose Women panellists: "First of all, can I just clear up. There's no ring. Would I get married without you? I Wouldn’t get married in that outfit. And, also, I wouldn't keep it a secret. I'd be so excited, you’d all be there."

Did Stacey and Joe break up?

Stacey and Joe have not split up and are very much still together and happily in love. However, Joe recently said the pair were close to breaking up when baby Rex was born

Speaking on Stacey's podcast, Here We Go Again, Joe said thought about 'a little separation' after Stacey banned him from going near Rex as he sprayed too much deodorant.

Joe said: "I did resent you. But it's weird, because in any other situation, I would have probably gone 'we need to take some time apart, we need to have a little separation' that's how bad it was."
