Joe Swash is ‘super proud’ as little sister and ex-EastEnders co-star Shana launches coffee stall business
She’s rarely been seen since she starred alongside her big brother in EastEnders up until 2006.

The launch of the couple’s coffee stall was announced by the Shana, 39, on Instagram on Tuesday.

Stacey Solomon’s long-term partner Joe, shot to fame starring alongside Shana on the TV soap in 2004. She was 14 and he was 22 at the time.
Following an unsuccessful online petition from fierce fans, her role as Joe’s on-screen sister Demi Miller was cut in 2006.

Joe also made his final appearance on the BBC soap in 2008 as part of an explosive storyline which saw Mickey and his father written out on the show.
While Shana has stayed away from the spotlight following a couple of acting stints, Joe’s kept his famous face on the small screen.
It comes after his pregnant fiancé Stacey Solomon, 31, shared a sweet family photo with her 4.6 million Instagram followers on Monday.

The children all wore outfits from a matching cream colour palette and Joe wore a burnt orange T-shirt paired with blue jeans.
Stacey captioned the post: ‘My Heart. Just because… I haven’t managed to get all of us in one picture in forever (even if it’s only half of Zach’s face bless him)
‘We were in the garden and all wearing similar colours (strategically planned by me but they don’t always wear what I put out for them) so I took my opportunity.
‘Rex was like “come on guys” and chucked his arms round the boys which cracked us all up…
‘Happy Monday everyone I hope this brings a smile to your day as much as it did us..’
