Stacey Solomon plays socially distant pass the parcel during girls' night in before tier two lockdown

STACEY Solomon enjoyed a game of pass the parcel last night as she enjoyed a girls' night in before Essex entered tier two lockdown at midnight.

The 31-year-old made sure to socially distance while she and her four pals, including her sister Jemma, played a cheeky version of the childhood party game.

Sitting in a wide circle in the star's living room, Stacey's sister Jemma could be heard saying: "Socially distanced pass the parcel" as they began to throw the gift wrapped package around.

Jemma then revealed she won several condoms when she unwrapped one layer of the prize while Loose Women presenter displayed the black bag shenabbed after taking off another layer.

Before all their fun and games, Stacey revealed she had organised one last night in with her pals before her native Essex entered new lockdown measures.

The TV star shared a boomerang of her and her friends toasting to their last get together with a glass of prosecco over her Autumnal decorated table.

Captioning the short clip, she penned a heartfelt message: "Cheers girls. With them and you. I have the best friends anyone could wish for."

Stacey's girls' night in came after it was announced on Thursday that London and Essex will be plunged into Tier 2 lockdown from midnight with a ban on households mixing.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned the threat from the bug in the capital was "grave and serious" as he announced the decision in the Commons.

Other areas moving into Tier 2 included Elmbridge, Barrow-in-Furness, York, North East Derbyshire, Erewash and Chesterfield.

Mr Hancock said on Thursday: "In London, infection rates are on a steep upward path with cases doubling every 10 days.

"We know from the first peak the infection can spread fast and put pressures on the NHS."

He added that he wants "the time London is in Tier 2 to be as short as possible" and ministers were already readying exit plans for the restrictions.

It means people will be told they can't mix with anyone from another household indoors, but can meet up in beer gardens and private gardens, where the national rule of six applies.

Londoners will also be told to avoid public transport. Schools, universities and places of worship are allowed to remain open, as well as offices and business venues.

All measures are subject to a review every 4 weeks.
