Stacey Solomon gives £50k camper van a makeover as she sleeps in it on her driveway – after calling it ‘a monstrosity’

STACEY Solomon has given her £50k camper van a makeover and even slept in it on her driveway last night.

The telly favourite, 28, slammed the vehicle as a "monstrosity" when her boyfriend Joe Swash parked it on their drive as a surprise last week.

The Dancing On Ice winner, 38, decided to buy his family a brand-new Volkswagen van – which boasts a gleaming oven, fridge and fancy blue LED lighting along the top of one of the windows.

And since giving it a Stacey Solomon style makeover, it seems that the mum-of-three has had a change of heart about how she feels about it.

Taking to her Instagram Story, the star explained: "The boys are so excited because we're going to take the camper van out for a spin, but not before we make it a bit more homely. Fejka's to the rescue…"

She slotted some faux house plants into an open space, filled the tiny cupboards with tasty snacks and the mini fridge with a range of refreshing drinks.







Stacey also gave the kitchen a deep clean, sprayed all the surfaces andeven dedicated one of the cubby wholes to her special cleaning products.

The star finished it off by making her very own tea-making station, hung up some colourful decorations and added some cosy pillows to the seating area.

The makeover clearly was a hit with Stacey's three boys – Leighton, Zachary and Rex – as they wouldn't leave the camper van to go to bed.

Stacey and Joe had to do rock, paper, scissors to see who would be the lucky one to sleep outside with them on the drive – and Stacey won.



But when the former EastEnders star turned up with the new ride on their doorstep, Stacey didn't seem too impressed.

After spotting the vehicle on her drive this weeked, Stacey playfully kicked Joe and said: "Oh my god. What the hell Joe? When did you get that?"

She then wrote on Instagram: "Is he actually joking? I was so tired last night I walked passed that monstrosity thinking someone had parked up and gone to the pub or something only to find out it's ours apparently."

Joe collected the impressive new automobile last Friday as a secret.



Taking to Instagram to share the news with his followers, Joe raved: "What Stacey don't know is I've come all the way to Whitley Bay to Southlands Motors to pick up this."

Filming the souped-up motor, the ex soap star told his fans: "Look at this.

"The new addition to the Swash/Solomon family. I can't wait to make some memories. I'm absolutely chuffed."

The new van will come in handy as Stacey wants to do more holidays in the UK after enjoying a number of staycations with her family this year.

At the beginning of August Stacey booked a last-minute seaside staycation with Joe and Rex.

Posting a picture of her cradling baby Rex by the sea, Stacey told fans: "You definitely don’t need to get on a plane to find paradise… 😭

"We have had the most magical weekend down by the sea. I’ve felt like pretty woman in my charity shop hat all day 😂 and I didn’t want this weekend to end.

"We feel so lucky to have been able to make these memories and we‘re already working out how and when we can come back with the big boys…"


Her new camper van isn't the only thing that Stacey has transformed over the past few weeks.

She recently turned her bedside table into a designer-inspired piece and totally transformed Rex's play kitchen into a brand new toy with a lick of paint.

Stacey also shocked fans with her huge flower display at her front door.
