Stacey Solomon gets emotional as Joe Swash sings along to his late dad’s favourite band

STACEY Solomon today got all emotional when she filmed her boyfriend Joe Swash singing along to his late dad’s favourite band.

Joe’s dad, a London cabbie, died when the star was just 11, from an undiagnosed heart condition Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.

The Dancing On Ice champ, 38, has previously revealed how his father Ricky was a big Simply Red fan.

Today Stacey, 30, shared a clip of him singing along to the band’s 90s tune Fairground as the couple headed off on holiday with their kids.

In the video Joe can be heard belting out the 1995 song.

Feeling the love for her man, Stacey wrote on the clip: “We are over half way and I’m enjoying a live Joe Swash Concert.

“His daddy used to love Simply Red so he always puts it on and sings his heart out to it.”

Stace added: “You’re such a good daddy @realjoeswashy your daddy would be so proud.”

Last month Joe discussed the heartbreaking moment he called for an ambulance when his dad passed away from a heart attack 27 years ago.

He shared the harrowing experience on Celebrity Gogglebox as he sat alongside partner Stacey Solomon while watching 999: What’s Your Emergency?

It was after the couple were shown a clip of 10-year-old boy calling for medical help after his father collapsed from an apparent heart attack.

Striking a chord, Joe discussed his own experience when his father Ricky passed away aged 39.

He said: “I was only 11 when my dad passed away from a heart attack.

“I had to get the ambulance and all that business.”

Fortunately for the young boy on the telephone he father regained consciousness, leaving Stacey and fellow Loose Women panelist Ruth Langsford in tears.

In March, Joe also broke down in tears before performing an incredible dance in honour of his late father on Dancing On Ice.

He welled up while discussing the Simply Red song Stars – which was played at his father’s funeral.

Breaking down on the show, Joe said: “I’m probably so different to the person I would have been if he was… it’s hard… it’s a hard thing.

“I miss my dad every day. There’s so much I’d love to show him.

“There are so many things I’ve done and experienced that I could have shared with him.”

Talking in a pre-recorded clip, he said: “I’m going to be dancing to Simply Red’s Stars. This song holds a very special part in my heart because it was my mum and dad’s song.

“We used to go on these long holidays to France, we used to put the caravan on the back of the car, and my mum and dad used to listen to Simply Red constantly.

“That music really brings back memories of a childhood. This song was played at his funeral.

“The song kind of changed – now when my mum plays it, it brings back sad memories, so I want to give it back to her.”
