Joe shared an adorable montage Stacey had posted to her grid with Tom Odell’s Real Love playing in the background.

The youngster was over the moon to meet him as they played chase in the garden.

The montage shows the pair building a Grotto for Santa and waiting for Santa to come and visit.

Joe gushed over his son and his excitement to finally meet Santa after working hard with this mum to get it built.

“My favourite Christmas so far… being your daddy is the best gift I could ever have,” Joe started.

“My best memories with my dad are from this time of year. I hope we make those memories for all of them like my dad.

“He was the greatest.”

Joe’s beloved dad Ricky, a London cabbie, tragically died from an undiagnosed heart condition when the star was just 11 years old.

Last year, Joe opened up about the heartbreaking moment that he called for an ambulance – and previously dedicated an incredible dance to his father when competing on Dancing On Ice.

Breaking down on the show at the time, he explained: “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.”

Stacey also gushed over their young son, saying her ‘heart will never be the same again’.

She captioned the montage: “After Rose was born Rex and me started a little project. So for a moment every day it was just us.

“We wanted to make a little grotto out of the shed for Santa to come and visit.

“We’ve been checking it every day this week to see if he was there and Today he finally came 🤩 And it was the best evening ever 🥲 I have never seen Rex so excited and my heart will never be the same again 😂💫 .

“I love you Rexy so much I’ve had the most fun making our grotto. I know I’ve had another little pickle to look after too and you’ve just been such an amazing big brother.

“Always 🖤 (Daddy was gutted he missed all the excitement 😂😉).”

Father Christmas dropped in to entertain Rex and his baby sister Rose, two months.

Stacey documented the evening on her Instagram Stories.

In one sweet picture Santa can be seen holding the youngster in his arms, with Stacey standing next to them with a huge smile on her face.

However, the mum-of-four did spot something off with Santa’s footwear as she captioned the post: “I very special someone came to visit Rexy tonight and it was just the best evening ever it was the belt for me and his Nikes.”

Stacey later shared a video of Santa putting Rex to bed after their evening of fun activities.

She wrote: “Santa really went the extra mile tonight.”

Father Christmas clearly had a tiring evening and he put his feet up and watched TV with Stacey in the living room.

The TV favourite joked: “Santa has gotten far too comfy at Pickle Cottage… Who does he think he is?”
