Stacey Solomon continued her tour of her Essex countryside home on Instagram on Thursday. 

The Loose Women star, 31, moved into the stunning Tudor build earlier this week with her fiancé Joe Swash, 39, and her three sons Zachary, 13, and Leighton, eight, and Rex, 22 months. 

Stacey gave a glimpse of the ‘pool house’, complete with retro hot tub, the ‘Cluedo room’ and her sons’ bedrooms.

Starting the tour, Stacey said: ‘Welcome to what I call the room from Cluedo. I don’t know what the hell this is, the library, the billiard room?’

The former X Factor star panned the camera round to show the orange-toned built-in bookcases. 

‘This is a really, really lovely room,’ she added. ‘It’s massive and the boys just love it in here. So I think we’re going to turn into a games room with a pool table, a fruit machine? I don’t know.’  

Wow! Stacey gave fans another glimpse of her incredible countryside mansion

Stacey then showed a kitchenette with a carpeted staircase, which lead up to what will be Joe’s son Harry’s room. 

Continuing the tour, the presenter said: ‘So Zachy and Leighton want to share a room again. They’ve shared since Leighton was born and they don’t want to be separate so this will be their room.’ 

The ‘Tap To Tidy’ author said she was looking forward to transforming the room and updating the threadbare carpet.

Stacey then went on to show the ‘pool house’. The room featured another kitchenette, shower and toilet and a huge conservatory room with glass doors looking out onto the pool. 

She wrote in the caption: ‘I think they must have been real party people because they had a massive hot tub. I don’t know why that makes me think of parties. I just love that it looks out onto the pool.’ 

Stacey said the hot tub doesn’t work and has big plans to completely renovate the space to bring it back to its former glory.

It comes after the star shared a slew of Instagram posts of the new property including the vintage installations in the downstairs toilet and en suite bathroom on Wednesday.  

The star showed Rex discovering new areas of the vast garden that had been decorated with flowers with their Dachshund puppy Peanut. 

Once Rex had settled down for a nap, Stacey revealed she was finally going to share a video of the front room.

The star admitted she was hoping to remove some of the old-style Tudor beams to expand the space, and was going to ‘move things around’ to make the space ‘really cosy.’

Stacey said the cottage was decorated with a small stained glass window, and she was yet to decide what to do with the colourful addition. 

Keeping with the country feel, the cottage also boasted dark oak doors, which Stacey said she was hoping to lighten to modernise the room. 

The former X Factor then confessed she’d become ‘obsessed’ with the vintage-style sinks in the downstairs toilet, and was hoping she may be able to move the installation into her main bathroom once she’d polished the brass.

While the basic room was furnished with little more than her son’s cot, Stacey said she was planning to transform the built-in wardrobes by ditching the floral curtains.

The room then led into Rex’s very own en suite bathroom, with Stacey gushing she was even more ‘obsessed’ with that room’s sink.

She wrote that she ‘can’t wait to do something’ with the space, before she panned the camera to some rustic orange doors.
