Joe Swash's video game sessions with Stacey Solomon

Share article:

Joe Swash loves playing video games with his girlfriend Stacey Solomon - but she always beats him because she "ploughs on" through dinner time practicing until 10pm.

The former "EastEnders" actor loves to bond with his family and his girlfriend by taking to the computer, but he cannot get the better of the "Loose Women" star because she is "so competitive".

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Stacey is the worst when it comes with computer games. She gets on "Crash Bandicoot", which is her favourite.

"She can play it for hours. Long past everyone else has lost interest in it.

"We'll all be playing it together having a great time and then we'll all fade off and do dinner. But Stacey will plough on until like 10pm, trying to compete it. She's so competitive.

"She's really good at them as well. I can't beat Stacey at computer games.

"She's also a terrible video games passenger. When I'm playing she's shouting at me, telling me what to do and where to move. You might as well just give it to her and let her do it."

Joe also loves to bond with his 10-year-old son Harry - who he has with his former fiancée Emma Sophocleous - while playing video games, but, like with Stacey, he cannot beat his son at the titles, and finds it "frustrating".

He said: "Video games are so fun to play with the family. We all sit down and play them.

"It's our generation's version of board games. Parents should have a little look themselves, they are really good fun.

"It's a nice way of bonding and spending time with the kids.

"But I'm sure there's something they put in the water for this younger generation - their fingers move faster than anyone else. I just can't keep up with Harry.

"It's so frustrating. I can beat him at everything, like football, but with video games he really wipes the floor with me."

Joe is fronting the #LetsPlayMay campaign, a UK-wide promotion encouraging the nation to give gaming a go this month. Head to Joe's Instagram @RealJoeSwashy to see how you could win a one-off gaming session with Joe ... in your own living room.
