Stacey Solomon brands Sort Your Life Out mass collection ‘absolute joke’

Sort Your Life Out: Stacey comforts guest

Stacey Solomon was left gobsmacked by one family after learning how many blankets they had accumulated over the years.

On Thursday night, BBC viewers watched Stacey and her team help Venicia and Elisha try to declutter their home.

Living with their three sons, daughter and Venicia’s little brother Samuel, the family were tasked with getting rid of 50 per cent of the items in their homes.

With all their belongings laid out in front of them in a warehouse, the family got to work with either throwing, donating or keeping certain things that had been put into sections.

With 116 hair accessories, 51 hats and 52 bottles of perfume inside among the sections, it was the number of blankets that took Stacey by surprise.

She said: “I want to tackle blankets, 118 blankets is an absolute joke.

“If you think about your wardrobe you didn’t have any clothes in there, it was all blankets and bedding.”

Getting to work on the collection she’d accumulated over the years, viewers learnt a bit more about Venicia’s habit.

Speaking to the camera, the mum-of-four said she remembers growing up with a lot of stuff at home.

She said: “That was my earliest memory of my mum just having mountains of clothes, I feel like I’ve inherited some of my mum’s clutter traits. I think more means happiness.”

However, it was discovering why 11-year-old Samuel, who Elisha called his “bonus boy”, was living with the family that had viewers emotional throughout the episode.

Samuel joined his sister in her home two years ago after they lost their mum, who had been battling cancer, to coronavirus at the age of 48.

While speaking to Samuel when they were moving the belongings out of the house, Stacey learnt the 11-year-old had a tablet with memories of his mum on it.

Although it had been destroyed and no longer turned on, not telling the family, the team made it their mission to get it working by sending it to a tech repair shop.

During the reveal, Stacey gave him back the working tablet as the child was clearly emotional trying not to get choked up.

Giving the host a huge hug, he thanked her for getting the images back before sitting on his new bed looking back at memories.

Sort Your Life Out continues on Thursdays on BBC One from 8pm.
