Stacey Solomon sends emotional message to Joe Swash as he leaves for Australia

Stacey Solomon has poured her heart out on social media after she had to say goodbye to boyfriend Joe Swash, who has headed over to Australia to begin filming for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Extra Camp.

Former EastEnders star Joe will be over in Australia filming Extra Camp for ITV for five weeks, while Stacey – who is not returning to the presenting line-up for the show this year – stays at home in the UK with her two boys.

Stacey posted a supportive message to boyfriend Joe on Twitter, before taking to her Instagram to post a long emotional message to her partner accompanied by a funny gif from their time presenting the I’m A Celeb spin-off show together.

‘My baby @realjoeswashy is on the way to the airport, off to Oz for this years #ExtraCamp! 5 weeks,’ she wrote along with an array of sad face emojis.

‘I’m going to miss you soooooo much but I know you’ll have the best time EVER and do a bloody brilliant job! Plus I know you’ll be thinking of me as we have so many memories there…’ the mum-of-two continued, alluding to their time together in the jungle.

‘Get your best crab impression on and side step on the beach for me! I love you baby! I can’t wait to watch you and the gang… what a brilliant line up…love u all,’ Stacey concluded.

She then echoed her sentiments once again as she shared a sweet photo of the pair embracing in Australia while filming the show, and posted another message of support to Joe.

‘And he’s off to Oz… Love you @realjoeswash & miss you already see you in 5 weeks #ExtraCampis going to smash it!’ Stacey tweeted.

Joe has worked on the I’m A Celebrity spin-off show since 2009, and this year will be joined by former winner Scarlett Moffatt and comedian Joel Dommett, after previous winter Vicky Pattison and comedian Chris Ramsey were axed from the show.
