Mum-of-two Stacey Solomon has admitted that she's never cooked Christmas dinner before because her fiancé Aaron Barnham usually takes the lead!

Former X Factor alumni Stacey also can't wait to open up her presents, and revealed that getting gifts from her sons Zachary and Leighton is the best gift of all.

"I've never had to cook Christmas dinner," Stacey tells Reveal. "Aaron loves it, he just loves cooking and I just sit there unwrapping the presents while he cooks!"

Stacey, 24, who is preparing to release her debut album next year, says: "I love Christmas. We'll all be at home enjoying each other's company because we hardly ever get to. It's just nice to have all the family around and everyone pops in and out. We have a big dinner too and everyone sings and dances!"

It's obvious that Christmas is Stacey's favourite time of the year, and spending it with her sons is the best part. "They give me the best presents," she says. "It's always like pasta and spaghetti things stuck onto a card, but I love it! They give it to me and they're really proud of it. I'm like, 'aww, this is better than everything'!

"I also get really nostalgic at Christmas because my dad wraps up an orange every year for us, and we always have to pretend that we don't know what it is. It always makes me really happy when he comes round with the ball in wrapping paper."

And Stacey also has strict rules for anyone coming round to visit her during the festive season. "Anyone that comes into our threshold has to wear a Chritsmas jumper," she declares.

After Stacey's X Factor stint in 2009, she landed a string of presenting gigs and became a familiar face on our TV screens, eventually being crowned Queen Of The Jungle in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010.

With an album on the way, Stacey has much to look forward to for 2014. "My New Year's resolution is just to work hard and be happy," she says. "That's all for me."
