"He asked me to marry him and after crying for what felt like a very long time… I said yes," Stacey shared with her fans.
The X Factor runner-up has said she wants her wedding day to be magical and previously told her Loose Women co-stars that she’s hoping for a “Disney fairytale-style” big day.

On her 24th birthday in 2017, just days before Christmas, the popstar was swept off her feet as she was proposed to under a sea of festive lights.
Sharing a video on her Instagram, she wrote: "I SAID YESSSS!!!! For my 24th birthday, the love of my life @darylsabara made all of my dreams come true.
"He proposed to me under a tunnel of beautiful Christmas lights and surprised me with my family and friends.

Jonathan Bennett and Jaymes Vaughan
Known for playing Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls, actor Jonathan Bennett and his TV host boyfriend Jaymes Vaughan got engaged in 2020.
Jonathan, 39, made headlines last year for the film The Christmas House, which was the first Hallmark Christmas movie to star a gay lead.
While away working on the Hallmark film, Jaymes 38, took the time to write a song tho accompany the proposal.
Talking to People Magazine, Jaymes explained: "So while he was in Canada filming The Christmas House for Hallmark, I took a melody that up until now had only be accompanied by chopsticks on my voice notes, and got together with my friend Tanzer, who happens to be a really talented producer and my favourite person to write songs with, and said 'Let's make this magical for Jonathan.'
In what was a full family and friend proposal where Jonathan thought he was just taking their Christmas card photo, he was then surprised with a Love Actually sign moment.
He said: "I saw Jaymes holding a sign that said "We never did find our song, so I wrote it for you." That’s when I knew was getting proposed to because it was the same type of sign he made when he told me he loved me for the first time. And then I began to ugly-cry the ugliest cry anyone has ever cried."
