Joe Swash says he hasn't been alone with Stacey Solomon for a YEAR because of lockdown and four kids

JOE Swash hasn't had much alone time with new fiancee Stacey Solomon since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 39-year-old star said the loved-up pair have not been alone together because of living in lockdown with their brood of kids.

Joe is dad to Harry, 13, from a previous relationship and lives in his Essex with Stacey their son, Rex, 20 months and her sons Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight.

Speaking on Lockdown Parenting Hell podcast he said: "There's never not a kid in the house."

Joe has Harry about 40 per cent of the time including over the weekends, which means while Leighton and Zachary are off with their dads, there are always kids at home.

Podcast hosts Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe asked when Joe and Stacey last had the house to themelves "just the two of you".

"It's got to be about a year ago, restrictions have f****d things up," Joe said and the hosts laughed.

He admitted trying to get his mum up to look after Rex so he and Stacey could be alone, but lockdown has prevented it.

"The thing about lockdown is, if I was a single person, I'd f****ng love this. It would be great doing nothing," Joe joked.

"But I think in lockdown, Stacey and I have been busier than ever.'

He admitted that if he could have some time with Stacey, he would

Despite their big "blended family" Joe wants to have more kids with Stacey and wants to try for a girl.

The ex-EastEnders actor revealed that he "100 per cent" wants another baby, but would stop having kids if he and Stacey had a girl.

The TV star said: "Rex has lulled us into a false of security. He was a perfect baby. 

"He made things so easy. I definitely want one more I think. I definitely 100 per cent would like one more.

"I’d love a girl, at the moment we’ve got all boys. It’s a massive sausage party in here. Harry, Rex, Leighton. We’ve got loads of boys, I’d love to have a little girl."

The I'm a Celeb star joked that they Swash-Solomon household may end up like The Waltons – the US drama about a large tight-knit family.

Joe added: "If we had another child and we had another girl that would be it.

"If we had another boy they’d always be that cloud over our heads until we go again, until we got the girl! We’ll end up like the Waltons."
