First up, how long have Stacey and Joe known each other?

"I guess we have known each other for years, bumped into each other, seen each other here and there," said Stacey, adding that Joe was the first person she saw after winning I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010.

How did the romance start? "I don't know how it happened. We were doing a show together and we really got on, and then I went out to do the [I'm A Celebrity] after show in Australia [that Joe hosts].

"I'm so embarrassed! I don't know what to say, I really like him!"

She laughed when the panel asked why nobody had paired them together sooner as they're a match made in heaven. "I know!" she laughed. "Why couldn't someone have told me about him years ago?!"

Was Joe brave to ask her out? "Oh no… I don't want to. Yeah, he was pretty brave. He got in there. No, not in that way! I'm a bit of an ice queen I was kind of like, no way, I dunno, but he kept going. He really is just a really lovely person. I'm so glad I met him and I'm getting to know him. I feel lucky."

Stacey has just been out to Austria.

Stacey's just been out to Innsbruck, Austria to visit Joe, where he's filming The Jump, a show that Stacey herself did last year.

"Loads of my friends were out there and people I worked with last year," she said. "I really wanted to get out there – and I feel really lucky I don't have to do it again! It looks so much worse this year. I don't know if it's because I got a year older or [the jump] got ten foot longer!"

She said Joe did "really well" in the most recent episode, taking part despite an injury. "He had hurt himself but he's alright, everything is okay and he's really enjoying it. He absolutely loves it and he's so competitive."

Stacey added that Joe will compete next week despite his injury. As for any advice she'd given him, she laughed: "I don't know if I'm the best person to give tips! All I said was enjoy it and don't go crazy, listen to what they say!"
