Joe Swash was inspired by his fiancee Stacey Solomon’s son Leighton getting his ear pierced during a trip to a shopping centre on Thursday, but when he took the plunge his fear caused hilarious scenes.

Following a relaxed morning preparing for a day of shopping, Loose Women star Stacey, 31, carted Joe, 39, and the kids out for a trip to IKEA, stopping off at Lakeside shopping centre on the way.

The couple had agreed to let Leighton, eight, have his ear pierced after he’d been begging “for ages”.

But while there, presenter Joe wanted in on the action and decided to get his lobe pierced too.

In hilarious scenes, while Leighton grinned to his mum and accepted the Claire’s Accessories shop assistant’s procedure with minimal fuss, Joe couldn’t hide his terror.


“We came here because Leighton has wanted his ears pierced for soooooo long so we thought summer holidays would be the time to do it… then Joe inspired by Leighton decided he should get one. Honestly I’ve never see anything like it. The drama,” Stacey told her followers on Instagram.

Sharing a series of laughing emojis, the redheaded beauty continued: “OMG sorry this took so long it was 25 minutes of waiting for Joe to get it done.

“Sorry to all of the little ones waiting patiently in the queue behind him.”

The mum-of-three went on to explain her middle child had managed his turn in the piercing chair in just 30 seconds, but as she filmed Joe attempting to be brave, it was a very different story.

The former EastEnders actor kept flinching as the shop worker came towards him with the piercing gun – begging “wait there” over and over.

“Come on she’s gonna count you down,” a frustrated Stacey warned, trying to get her partner to hurry along.

“I know Stace!” Joe barked back, clearly annoyed with himself.

In the end, Joe managed to brave it, but it was all for nothing, as Stacey later revealed her Joe was already regretting his spontaneous move.

“Until finally she just went for it. God love her. But OMG I can’t stop laughing now because we are home and he hates it,” Stacey giggled. “All of that hahaha.”

She then filmed herself in hysterics over Joe’s antics, and she zoomed in on his ear stud.

“I only did it because I’ve never had my ears pierced and I was curious about how it felt,” Joe said indignantly, as Stacey continued to giggle that the TV presenter had “made a bit of a fuss of it”.

Despite his hilarious reaction, Joe turned serious as he insisted he didn’t think wearing an earring was “him”, but Stacey laughed: “You’re never too old!”
