STACEY Solomon has revealed she invited local children to use her swimming pool at Pickle Cottage during the heat wave.
The Loose Women star, 32, joked that they’ve turned their outdoor pool into a ‘villa lido’ on Instagram.
Stacey, mum-of-four, showed local children cooling off in the back garden of her £1.3million Essex mansion after their schools closed.
She wrote: “All boys schools were canceled this morning due to the heat.
“So we welcomed all the kids to marinate the chalet pool.
“It’s been a crazy day in what has become the village lido. I hope you are doing well with this heat.
Stacey was shown relaxing with a drink and said her dad had acted as lifeguard for the children.
The chalet had a swimming pool for a long time, but was so dirty and in need of work that the renovation took months.
But last month, Stacey cut the ribbon at the Pickle Cottage pool, posing in shades alongside Joe Swash, son Rex and daughter Rose.
Stacey, who is engaged to I’m a Celebrity star Joe, revealed that she has also started planning her wedding, as their nuptials are just days away.
She added, “Also today I’m starting the hair process before the wedding, it’s going to be a long process, so we wanted to start early to make sure everything goes smoothly!”
“I had intended to make wedding preparations between the two, but I’m throwing that out the window in this heat. I will try from tomorrow.
Stacey and Joe, parents of their daughter Rose, are to be married at home at the end of July.
