Joe Swash is taking Stacey and baby Rex on holiday after Dancing On Ice finale after being ‘absent’ for four months – The Sun

JOE Swash is taking Stacey Solomon and their baby Rex on holiday after the Dancing On Ice finale.

The 38-year-old admitted he's been "absent" for the past four months as he trained for the ITV show and wants to make it up them.

Ahead of Rex's first birthday in May, Joe told The Sun Online they're going on a family trip to bond.

"I need to go home and reconnect with my kids," he said.
"I feel like I had a baby and then just disappeared for the last four months. He's adorably cute, I'm so lucky.

"So me and Stace have got a holiday booked after Dancing on Ice finishes because it's Rex's birthday soon.
"We've also got a project we're working on together – the first time we've done something together. That's exciting.

"But apart from that I'm just going to try and have a lie in."
He then joked: "So I've got the final to look forward to and then meeting the son I never met! It's amazing."

Joe has made it to the final three in Dancing on Ice and will compete against Perri Kiely and Libby Clegg on Sunday night.

But his position in the finale was threatened this week when he was rushed to hospital with a serious ear infection.

He's now been forced to wear a head bandage to protect himself as he rehearses.

"It's like a rugby player or a boxer with cauliflower ears," Joe told The Sun Online.
"It all swelled up and got really infected.
"The paramedic looked at it and said 'you're in trouble mate you've got to go to the hospital immediately'.
"They had to drain it then cut the back out to get s*** out of it.

"When I saw the bandage, I thought 'surely this is overkill', but they say I've got to wear it all week.
"I can only take it off on Sunday for the performance – and they're saying they want me to put it on for the wrap party. I'm not putting it back on!
"I look like Princess Leia with half a hairdo… Stacey hasn't given me much sympathy."

Stacey's been in hysterics at his new look – and even likened him to Mother Teresa.
