Stacey Solomon shares Pickle Cottage pool update as she reveals the one detail she’s ‘most excited about’

Stacey Solomon has shared a much-anticipated update on her pool renovation at her house, Pickle Cottage. The star shared the new photos to her 5.2 million Instagram followers.

Stacey has been keeping fans up-to-date on the renovation of her house for the past year and the pool has been one of the main projects during that time. When they moved in, the Loose Women star shared photos of the derelict pool, which was not much more than a paved hole in the ground.

Since then, Stacey’s had builders in to redo it. She’s added iridescent tiles to the entire structure and began filling the pool a couple of weeks ago.

Stacey revealed the pool was nearly done

Responding to a fan who asked “How’s the pool doing,” Stacey replied: “We are out here right now because Rex loves being here in his life jacket and rubber ring even though he’s not swimming.” The caption accompanied a video of Rex, 3, eating a pack of crisps on his inflatable ring on the edge of the pool.

Stacey then explains there’s a pit under the pool cover that needs filling in before they can start using it. “So close now,” she wrote. “One of the things I’m most excited about is as soon as the pool is ready Joe, Zach, Leighton, Rex and me are all starting a lifeguard course. They do rookie courses for children where they learn all of the same skills as adult lifeguard training which I think is amazing!”

Stacey and fiance Joe Swash moved into Pickle Cottage last March and Stacey, who is famous for her DIY and home renovation tips, has been sharing updates with her fans ever since. The couple, who are due to get married in two months’ time, live in the house with their children Rex, 3 and newborn Rose as well as Stacey’s children form previous relationships Leighton, 10 and Zachary, 14 and Joe’s son Harry, 14.
