With summer well and truly on the horizon,Stacey Solomon has been adding the final touches to her sprawling garden at Pickle Cottage.

The 32 year old,who has documented the entire renovation project on Instagram, has revealed that her swimming pool has nearly been completed, just in time for summer.

After theLoose Women panellist announced that the area needed some urgent work after it was too unsafe to use, Stacey has spent months bringing the lavish addition back to life.

And now, the mum-of-four has been unable to contain her excitement as the finishing touches are made.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Stacey showed her 5.1million followers that the pool had been completely tiled and that work was now being done on the accompanying pergola.

Though things have been slower than expected, she wrote: “There is a delay with the cover & also the tiling took longer [crying emoji]

“So it will be ready to fill next week but only if the safety cover arrives because I just won’t fill it before then”.

As her son Leighton turned 10 yesterday, the TV personality explained that he’d be making the most of the pool in coming weeks.


She added: “But Leighton is so excited and we just said we will have his party next week or the week after”.

Showing off the empty pool, Stacey revealed that she’d opted for some mosaic light grey tiles to tie in with the garden’s vibrant blue and purple border plants.

Sticking with the minimal theme, the area surrounding the pool is paved with large grey tiles which lead onto the adjoining pergola and brick barbecue.

Speaking of the outdoor entertainment area, the social media star explained earlier on in the week thatshe’d painted the area in a dark wood stain to blend in with the surrounding trees.

She explained: “I got help today there was two of us so its all coated. It all needs another coat but I’m so excited [crying emoji]”.

Amid the ongoing excitement surrounding the project,Stacey has previously admitted about being “embarrassed” by the scale of the makeover.

Having moved into the lavish mansion last year, along with her fiancé Joe Swash, 40, and their two children, Rex, two, and Rose, as well Stacey's two sons, Zach, 14, and Leighton, 10, she explained that talking about her pool made her “cringe”.

She wrote: “I know this is the most unrelatable content ever so I'm sorry. I do cringe charing it… I almost feel embarrassed for some reason.

“But you guys genuinely ask about it every single day so here's the update! Pickle Cottage came with this pool but it needed a safety update and fixing and it's finally coming together.”
