Stacey Solomon has confessed she’s got a few unconventional keepsakes hidden away at home.
In preparation for her upcoming third season of BBC’s Sort Your Life Out, the mother of five has opened up about some of the possessions she struggles to let go of.
Admitting there are some things she couldn’t bear to part with, the Loose Women star revealed she has special memory boxes for each of her children.

Chatting about her cherished belongings, Stacey confessed she’s kept some unusual items as mementos from each of her children’s births.
“I’ve got [the kids’] umbilical cords,” she told to the Mirror. “I think I’ve got the boys’ foreskins somewhere.”
Stacey understands that some people may be surprised by her choice of keepsakes, and revealed her Sort Your Life Out co-star, Dilly Carter, isn’t onboard with the contents of her memory boxes.
“Dilly absolutely rips me to shreds over that,” she said. “She’s like, ‘What is wrong with you?!'”

Further detailing why the special boxes mean so much to her, Stacey said she’s added items to them over the years that each represent core memories for her children.
“They’ve all got each individual memory boxes. So I hold on to them in their memory boxes alongside little trinkets,” she said.

Stacey became a mother of five earlier this year when she gave birth to Belle, her youngest daughter.
Belle is her third child with her husband, former EastEnders star Joe Swash, and fifth overall.
“We are so grateful we get to be your family,” she wrote in a sweet Instagram post following the baby’s arrival.
Sort Your Life Out season 3 premieres Thursday September 7 at 8pm on BBC Two and iPlayer.
