Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash shunned a romantic dinner and drinks for their first date, instead racing up and down a beach pretending to be crabs!

Yes, really!

Everyone's favourite girl next door Stacey, 26, told Reveal: "When we first met, the thing that clicked was we're both idiots. We're both stupid, and we love to be silly and have fun. On our first date, we ended up running up and down a beach just acting ridiculous, pretending to be crabs."

The couple initially met way back in 2010 through I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and were friends first before romance blossomed.

"It's going really well, I'm happy and Joe is amazing," she told us.

"He's a genuine guy, and I'm really glad that I met him. The difference between Joe and anyone else I've ever met is that he's really understanding. He grew up in such a lovely environment, His mum brought him up with his sisters, so he knows women, and has a real empathy and appreciation for what they do as parents.

"I've never met a man like that, ever. He's just really sensitive, kind, trustworthy and big-hearted. He hasn't got a bad bone in his body."


And could we be hearing wedding bells soon?!

During an appearance on ITV's Loose Women last week, Stacey admitted the couple had discussed marriage in the future."It is something we talk about," she added, "not as in we've started planning anything but we definitely see a future together and I adore Joe."
