She revealed that, like many schools across the country, her sons’ schools were closed on Tuesday due to extremely high temperatures.

“All boys schools were canceled this morning due to the heat,” she captioned a photo from her poolside while sipping an ice cold drink.

“So we welcomed all the kids into the pool at the marinated cottage. It’s been a crazy day in what has become the village lido. I hope you are doing well with this heat.

“I didn’t do anything today, but the kids had a great day. And honestly, it’s been way too hot to run. Some of them are still singing Christmas songs loudly on the hottest day ever.

Stacey and Joe are getting married at their £1.2million Essex home at the end of July, with the do-it-yourself queen doing most of the preparation herself.
