Stacey Solomon has revealed that boyfriend Joe Swash surprised her with a date to Ikea after telling her to dress up for an evening without the children.

The 30-year-old Loose Women star took to Instagram to share the hilarious prank as she laughed at their "romantic" evening out and admitted she "throughly enjoyed" herself at the Swedish furniture store.

In the post, Stacey donned a chic floral dress as she held onto a large bag of Daims and faux flowers while cuddling up to beau Joe, 38.

Captioning snap, the former X factor contestant told her 3.7million followers: "Date night I love you Joe Joe but what the heck?

"It’s honestly been such a long time since we went out just us two... And I never imagined our first date night would be a surprise night in Ikea."

She continued: "But I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I do love you bubs to the moon and stars and back again. You get me.

"Even though you instantly regretted your decision when you saw the Fejka section I made myself a nice bouquet, grabbed a basket I definitely don’t need and a giant pack of Daims.

"And now we are off to get some dinner. I’m guessing it’ll be a McDonald’s the way this night's going."

Concluding: "Thank you bub. Happy Friday everyone... I hope you’re all ok! Love you lots, always."

The lovebirds have been dating since 2016

Unsurprisingly, Stacey's latest Instagram grid update pulled on the heart strings of her 3.7 million followers, with some rushing to leave a message for the star underneath the adorable snap.

Taking to the comments section, one fan gushed: "Couple goals. You are perfect together. It doesn’t matter what you do it’s who you do it with."

A second penned: "This is brilliant and sounds like the best date night."

Another added: "Perfect date night! Have fun you two."

While a fourth posted: "Oh Stacey. I know exactly what you mean . Enjoy x."

Stacey's loved-up post comes days after she opened up about her sex life with former Eastenders actor Joe and said the pair sometimes had stretches where they went without it.

Speaking on Loose Women, she said the couple, who share a one-year-old son called Rex, had periods where they were "too knackered" for sex.

Asked by host Christine Lampard if she could "live without intimacy", Stacey replied: "I think only if it's mutual.

Stacey often shares posts about her family on Instagram

"Sometimes in our relationship there's periods of time when your children are really young or when life is really frantic or mental.

"Or when something really sad is happening in your life where you might go for periods of time without it."

She added: "I think if you're both on the same page, like some nights me and Joe lay down next to each other, we have a look and we go 'Nah - sod that.'

"But we both mutually feel the same way. Do you know what I mean? We just think: 'It's not going to happen.' We're knackered."

Dad-of-two Joe and mum-of-three Stacey revealed they were dating in 2016, and later went on to host the I'm A Celeb spin-off show together later the same year.

The lovebirds moved in together in 2018 and revealed they were expecting a baby the following year. Their son Rex was born in May 2019.
