Stacey Solomon cannot believe Reese Witherspoon even knows who she is.

The 'Loose Women' panellist will host 'Renovation Rescue', the first UK project made by Reese Witherspoon's production company and Stacey is still in shock.

She told MailOnline: "Oh my God, what an amazing feeling to be asked. I was genuinely like, 'How does she even know me?' I still to this day don't know how they found me. They just said they wanted me. Maybe some of her researchers and her team had seen the show. Well, they would have had to, I guess, to know anything about me.

"I haven't actually met her. She wrote a message to say how excited she is and we're hoping to FaceTime her on the day the show goes out. She seems pretty busy changing the world for women in our industry, so that's OK, I'll let her off for not coming to Bradford to see us shooting an episode!"

In 'Renovation Rescue' Stacey helps couples who have been abandoned by untrustworthy tradespeople.

She said: "Don't get me wrong, there are always going to be jobs where the professionals are needed. I can't build a house myself.

"There are so many amazing tradesmen out there, but they're hard to find and if you don't know what you're looking for, you can end up spending loads of money and never getting anything back, which is just devastating."
