Stacey Solomon is heading back to our screens with a sweet new role, as she takes over from Tom Allen as co-host of Bake Off: The Professionals.

The news was confirmed by the show’s official Twitter account earlier this year, saying: ‘Choux la la! We’re chuffed to announce that @StaceySolomon will be joining @LiamCBakes, @BenoitBlin_MCA and @Cherish_Finden for the next series of Bake Off: The Professionals.

It’s one of Stacey’s first TV roles since she announced the arrival of her baby daughter with fiance Joe Swash in October – revealing the happy news that she was born on the presenter’s 32nd birthday.

The baby was Stacey’s first daughter – but how many children does the star already have?
