Stacey Solomon had audience in tears of laughter after cheeky dig at Joe Swash

Stacey Solomon had a cheeky dig at her hubby, Joe Swash, as she took to the stage for presenting an award at the grand BAFTA TV Awards 2024.

Loose Women host Stacey, married to former EastEnders actor Joe, had the honour of presenting the prize for Factual Entertainment category with nominees including Celebrity Race Across the World, The Dog House, Endurance: Race to the Pole and Portrait Artist of the Year vying for the accolade.

As Stacey made her way on stage, presenter Rob Beckett introduced her in jest, stating: "Next on stage is the host of Sort Your Life Out - which is a bit rich coming from someone who married Joe Swash. It's Stacey Solomon."

Playing off the humour, Rob quickly followed with, "Love you, Joe! " Unfazed by the playful remark, Stacey retorted with a grin: "He's not that bad... He is though."

The triumphant series named as winner was the Celebrity Race Across the World. Longtime friends of both Joe and Stacey, Rob has shared amusing anecdotes of the couple, including a past humorous riff about their 'p*ss-taking' wedding guests.

Also last month, sassy comments about the Pickle Cottage wedding ceremony were shared by Rob on his Sky Max show, Rob Beckett's Smart TV. In a previously unseen clip of the show shared on social media, robust chats with guests including This Morning's Alison Hammond and comedian Josh Widdicombe occurred around the topic of whether a woman should propose to a man, reports the Mirror.

The show host, Rob, shared a hilarious anecdote from Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash's wedding that had everyone in stitches. He said: "The biggest p*** take is being a guest at a wedding. I arrived on time. We sat down outside, it was red hot, it was Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon's wedding. I'm sitting in the sun in their beautiful garden, it's red hot, 15 minutes late already, but fair enough. Getting ready, whatever. Fine, I was sitting on my phone flicking through and I see on Stacey Solomon's Insta."

He continued: "Go on her story, she's one minute ago, 'running a bath for the big day'. I could pop back home and change. You're having a f***ing bath while I'm in your garden."

Stacey saw the funny side of Rob's reveal and responded with a series of laughing emojis on Instagram, writing: "Couldn't go down the aisle with hairy legs could I".
