Swash – who has a TV presenting career since winning I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2008 – recently married Loose Women star Stacey Solomon , who he began dating in 2015.

Solomon, 32, recently revealed how friendly Swash is to everyone he meets, even strangers, when commenting on his stag do antics.

She laughed in a video on her Instagram stories: "I've got to admit. Probably the best headline I've ever seen, 'Joe Swash caught talking to another girl.'

"I'd be more upset if it said, 'Joe Swash caught ignoring everyone who talked to him'."

Joking she should become a paparazzo she added: "Honestly, I'm in the wrong job. I'm up and down the country organising people's houses but I should be following Joe around with a camera. He talks to girls everywhere. The school run, in Tesco, down the street. I could be like click click click, just making a fortune!"

Solomon – who found fame on The X Factor in 2009 and went on to win I’m a Celebrity in 2010 – met Swash when they both worked on ITV2 spin-off show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! NOW!.

They became engaged on Christmas Eve 2020 and had been planning to tie the knot in their back garden last summer.

But the couple decided to postpone their wedding by a year after announcing they were expecting their second child together after trying for “a really long time”.

They welcomed daughter Rose Opal Esme Solomon-Swash in October 2021.

Solomon is already mother to three-year-old son Rex with Swash, as well as sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from two previous relationships.
