STACEY Solomon’s boyfriend Joe Swash joked that Instagram is the ‘third person’ in their relationship.
The TV personality, 30, regularly keeps her 2.9m followers updated with her daily life with her boyfriend and three sons Zachary, 11, Leighton, 7, and nine-month-old Rex – but the former EastEnders star, 38, has revealed that he’s actually quite jealous of the attention her social media platform gets.

She recently poked fun at his new look when he showcased his new HD brows, eyelash perm and spray tan ahead of his Dancing On Ice debut which started earlier this year.
Stacey also took to Instagram to tell Joe off for using the “show cups” when they got their kitchen redone – and now Joe’s had enough of the constant exposure.
He said: “There’s never a special moment between me and Stacey where we’re not on Instagram.
“It’s like the third person in our relationship. I’m really jealous of Instagram, it gets to spend more time with her than I do.”

However his recent injury during a training session for Dancing On Ice will definitely take his mind off the dreaded third wheel in his relationship.
The actor was rushed to hospital earlier this week after suffering an injury on the ice after he was kicked in the ear by his dance partner Alex Murphy.
The wound quickly got infected and he had an emergency operation to drain the fluid from his ear.
On Tuesday night Joe explained to his 1.3m followers exactly what had happened and said: “I thought we’d get the elephant out of the room and talk about this stupid, ridiculous bandage on my head.
“So basically what happened was me and Al were doing disco dad and her skate kicked me in the ear which gave me cauliflower ear.
“Then it go infected which meant last night I had to get rushed to hospital and have an operation on it and cut it open and drain out all the gooey stuff.”

A source said: “Joe has been cleared by a doctor to perform on Sunday.
“He’s fine, but he’s just annoyed about getting an infection and is wearing the bandage as a precaution. He’s out on the ice now rehearsing.”
Last night Stacey was back to her old tricks on Instagram – but this time she revealed that she was worried about Joe when he hadn’t returned home by the time he was supposed to after rehearsals.
As soon as he walked in the door Stacey realised why he was late – and the big bandage probably amused the mum-of-three more than it should have.
“Joe is safe and well and still dancing he just had some sort of ear infection and it looks to me like they’re being precautious,” she shared with fans on Instagram.
