STACEY Solomon has been using her lockdown time to get creative – and yesterday made a DIY dinner tray to eat meals in front of the TV. 

The Loose Women star, 30, said her dining table has been taken over by her sons’ quarantine school work, so she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Posting on her Instagram Stories, mum-of-three Stacey proudly announced: “I am going to make a dinner tray.

“So because the dining table is now a school, me and Hoe [partner Joe Swash] have no where to eat.

“I could clear it every night and put it back again ready for the morning but who the hell do you think I am. 

“Instead I’m making us some dinner trays.”

Essex-based Stacey said she found the tutorial on YouTube and shared all of the materials she needed, including an old pillowcase and pillow, a photo frame and a staple gun.”

She assured her 3.1million fans: “You only have to use things you already have in the house.”

After a quick arts and crafts session, she proudly showed off the finished result; a grey and white tray with handles and a front design that displayed the words: “Eat me”. 

She said: “It’s not perfect but it does the job.”


What you will need:

1 x old pillow

1 x old pillow case

1 x photo frame

1 x printed picture of choice

1 x staple gun

Drawer handles (optional)


How to make Stacey's dinner tray:

Stacey may have been delighted with her dinner tray, but Joe seemed baffled at her creation.

He can be heard asking: “Why does it say Eat Me on it?”

Stacey replied: “Because you are going to eat everything that is on there.”
