It seems social media has produced yet another home cleaning superstar a la Mrs Hinch. Stacey Solomon's book Tap To Tidy is a new guide for tidying enthusiasts. The Loose Women presenter regularly posts cleaning and organisational hacks to her Instagram page and invites her followers to watch her tidy her home. Her satisfying 'Tap To Tidy' feature sees the mum-of-three magically transform her messes with just a click of the finger (if only it were that easy).

Solomon announced the book, entitled Tap to Tidy: Organising, Crafting & Creating Happiness in a Messy World, on her Instagram page, which has 3.9 million devoted followers. Due to be released on March 2021, you can pre-order the book on Amazon.

Solomon has often described her organisational and crafting skills as a source of calm and meditation and it appears many people feel the same. "When I started doing Tap to Tidy on Instagram, I had no idea people would enjoy the satisfaction of seeing a huge mess turn into something liveable as much as I do! " she explained in the book's press release. "And I’m so grateful, because, quite frankly, it’s the only content I’ve got most of the time," she added.

The loveable presenter, who recently became engaged to actor Joe Swash, admitted that she was a little nervous about her book launch.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "Honestly I’ve never been so nervous. Thanks to your kindness, support, love, and encouragement, I was given the chance to write a book and I said yes. And yesterday this came through the door and my stomach has been doing summersaults ever since.

"I can hand on my heart say I’ve thought so much for so long about every word, drawing, diagram, craft, snack, tap to tidy and playlist in it, from cover to cover. It’s taken over my life for the last year,' she added. "You all told me to go for it and so I did..."

Solomon describes Tap To Tidy as a "dream come true" and hopes to make her followers proud.
