Joe Swash has accidentally revealed the exact date he and Stacey Solomon will get married...while speaking on live TV.

The celebrity couple have already announced they plan to tie the knot in the garden outside their new £1m home in Essex this summer.

But they had remained coy on when the big day was – until yesterday.

Stacey and Joe were part of a special edition of Loose Women and was involved in a discussion about wedding day advice.

The conversation inevitably turned to when the couple’s big day was.

During the chat, Joe turned his fiancée and asked: “Stacey, are we allowed to say? I never know!”

Stacey cheekily replied: “You wouldn’t know the date even if we were allowed to say!”

But much to her dismay and horror, Joe then revealed the date was the “last Sunday in July”. Sitting with her head in her hands, Stacey said: “Oh my God, why did I bring you here?!”

The pair got engaged at Christmas and recently moved into a house in Essex that they have dubbed “Pickle Cottage”.

Solomon, 31, has been showing off the large garden on her Instagram feed and has previously revealed the move has given her second thoughts about her wedding plans.

She told Cat Deeley on ITV’s Lorraine last month: “We had the venue and we didn’t know we were going to move here. We saw the house and thought, ‘Let’s go for it’.

“Now we’re here, we’d actually like to get married in the garden. We’re trying to see if we can do that.”

Loose Women and X Factor star Solomon and EastEnders actor Swash, 39, have been dating since 2015. They are both former winners of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Solomon and Swash, who is best known for playing Mickey Miller on the long-running BBC soap, have a one-year-old son named Rex together.

Solomon also has two children from previous relationships while Swash has another son.

She previously revealed Swash popped the question during a walk in the woods on Christmas Eve.
