The ‘Loose Women’ panellist explained that her two-year-old son – who she shares with fiancé Joe Swash – suffered a “nightmare” accident in the garden over the weekend and required sterile strips to close the wound.

Speaking on Instagram, Stacey said: “We had a nightmare yesterday. Rex fell over in the garden and we were like, ‘Up you get.’ Then we looked and it was not an ‘up you get’ situation.

“He hurt his lip so we took him to A&E and he had some little butterfly strips put on.”

The 31-year-old star continued: “I’m going back today to get him some proper stitches, because it’s in a really awkward place.

“But he was so good and he didn’t make a sound. He was just like: ‘Yeah, fix it,’ to the doctor. But he was so good.”

However, Stacey revealed that her partner wasn’t so brave during the incident.

Turning her phone to him, she said: “Joe on the other hand…”

He replied: “Honestly, when the kids are hurt I panic like nobody’s business.”

Stacey said: “He had to leave the room and he was crying. Bless your soul. I’ll be looking after Joe today more than Rex – I love you.”

Stacey – who also has sons Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships – recently revealed that she and Joe are expecting their second child together.

She gushed on her Instagram Stories: "We honestly couldn’t believe it.

“So we told the boys and we’ve spent yesterday and today finishing the Wendy house ready to welcome a new pickle into our lives.”
