While pregnant Stacey Solomon is packing her own hospital bag for the impending arrival of baby number five (opens in new tab), fans are wondering when Sort Your Life Out Season 2 starts?

After the success of the one-off special in April 2021, Stacey Solomon's Sort Your Life Out launched it's first full series and almost a year later there's another full series for fans to get stuck into.

If you're wondering why there's been such a delay, it's been a busy year for Essex lass Stacey who has since launched further Primark kids collections, raising her baby girl born in October 2021 with Joe Swash and getting married (opens in new tab).

But before she even knew she was pregnant with her fifth child the Queen of decluttering (opens in new tab) and her expert team (organiser Dilly, carpenter Rob and cleaner Iwan) were back filming to challenge families up and down the UK to sort their lives out in just seven days with plenty of easy cleaning hacks (opens in new tab)

Throughout the space of a week the team help families to transform their messy homes through a life changing declutter, budget friendly makeover and supersized spring clean, as they upcycle (opens in new tab) and recycle their way to a new home.   

 As we look at all you need to know ahead of the new show...

Speaking ahead of the new season, presenter and tidying extraordinaire, Stacey Solomon, said, "I’m so happy that the team and I are back to share our favourite tips and tricks on decluttering, upcycling, tidying and being thrifty! I love that we get to help people transform their lives for the better, even just a little bit.

“Sort Your Life Out is about showing people that by decluttering your home, you can really make a positive impact on all areas of your life – including saving your hard-earned cash. It’s never about shaming people for holding onto their stuff, I definitely have a tendency to hang on to treasured items for longer than I probably should!

It seems Stacey is certainly pleased to have them on board to help, "I’m not qualified. I can give a really good cuddle. But outside of that there does need to be professionals that step in and say ‘Hi, we think you need a bit more back-up than that’. And that is what they do,” she previously told the Glasgow Times.
