With the help of professional organiser and Sort Your Life Out co-star, Dilly Carter, Stacey’s biggest task is to transform a neighbouring barn into a Christmas grotto for a party with her local community. 

In true Stacey style there are ideas for all ages, with son Leighton, 10, helping Stacey to create personalised Christmas crackers, and three-year-old Rex getting messy with marbleised baubles for the tree.

Speaking about her love of crafting, she revealed: ‘It’s something I can really lose myself in. Life for many people is really fast and busy, and when I craft my mind has to focus on the task at hand. 

‘You can have all these thoughts running around in your head but you have to push them to one side to focus on the thing in front of you. It’s so relaxing.’

Speaking about her Christmas plans she added: ‘There’ll be lots more crafting, of course. I’m yet to make my Christmas door! 

‘But I’m most looking forward to spending time with Joe and the kids. It’s been a busy year so I’m excited to wind down and just do nothing.’

It comes after Stacey showed off Christmas decorations in an Instagram post on Thursday.
