Stacey Solomon unveils deteriorating swimming pool at new £1.2m Essex manor

Stacey Solomon wowed fans with her huge empty swimming pool on Saturday.

The former X Factor star, 31, gave her followers a sneak peek into her daily chores as she jet washed the swimming pool tiles at her new "forever home", Pickle Cottage.

The £1.2million Essex manor is so named after Stacey’s youngest son Rex, who they nickname Pickle.

In the clip, Stacey excitedly says: "Oh my god, all I wanna do is get my jet wash out!"

The pool had been covered over with a large blue sheet, which was slowly pulled back to reveal its dilapidated state.

"I wonder if there’s any frogs or anything!"

The caption read: "The pool guys are here and this is the first time I’ve seen inside" with a starry-eyed emoji.

She then shared a hugely satisfying clip of her beginning the jet wash process – and wrote Stacey in cursive on the pool floor, along with a love heart.

Stacey wrote on Instagram: "Can’t cope with this jet wash joy."

She later shared a snap to her story, explaining: "So @thepoolguyml will need to clean this properly with chemicals, fill it and then test all the pipes. But he let me have some fun with my jet wash first.

"This is a massive job so it’ll take a few days but I am SO excited for the tap to tidy.

"Genuinely having the time of my life."

Stacey also let fans in on more of her dream home, including a second "family bathroom" with a toilet decorates this time with burgundy flowers.

She has a similar loo emblazoned with a blue pattern elsewhere in the house.

"This is like the family bathroom with an amazing toilet, and a shower but we might change that for a bath and a shower.

"And another glorious sink! God I love the sinks in this house. But my favourite bit is this door’s got little love hearts on it!"

The wooden Tudor-style door has love hearts cut out in a top border.

Stacey also shared how she "managed to cook a full meal" on her retro green stove, adding that she felt "like Betty Crocker."

She and Joe recently extended their family, adding a wild cat that the previous tenant had been feeding.

The lady asked if Stacey would continue to put food out for the moggy, and he finally entered the house on Sunday.

"Here he is!" she wrote.

The couple recently welcomed a sausage puppy called Peanut into their home back in February this year, and already have dog Theo.
