Who is Stacey Solomon and how did she find fame?

Stacey Solomon is a 27-year-old Essex-born TV personality originally from Dagenham, Essex.

The fast-talking and lovable star first captioned the nation’s attention by impressing in the 2009 series of The X Factor.

After blowing away the judges Stacy made it into the live shows and eventually finished third behind Olly Murs and winner Joe McElderry.

She later released Christmas single, Driving Home for Christmas, in 2011, which peaked at Number 27 in the charts.

Her album Shy, peaked at Number 45 in 2015.

She is the mother of two sons – Zachary, 9, whose father is Dean Cox and Leighton, 4, whose dad is Aaron Barnham.

When did Stacey take part in I’m a Celebrity and what happened next?

Stacey Solomon appeared on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here in 2010.

She won the show with a staggering 80% of the votes, thanks to her down to earth nature.

Since then Stacey’s TV career has gone from strength to strength – seeing her front shows, adverts and take part in panel programmes.

In 2011 Stacey appeared alongside Kerry Katona in a string of Iceland commercials – I’m a Celeb’s sponsor at the time.

In 2016, she was asked to return to the jungle as a presenter on ITV2 spin-off show, I’m a Celebrity, Extra Camp.

She hosted the show alongside comedian Chris Ramsey, 2015 jungle Queen Vicky Pattison, and jungle King Joe Swash – who is also Stacey’s other half.

But ITV chiefs have decided to drop Stacey from the 2017 edition of the show – and are also reviewing Joe’s role on the spin-off programme.

Stacey joined the panel on ITV talk show Loose Women in 2016, and remains a series regular.

Like some of the other panellists, Stacey is keen to promote a positive body image, and recently posted a video of herself showing off her “imperfections” in a white bikini.

Last year Stacey also stormed to victory on The Chase, when she blew viewers away by bagging a momentous £60,000 for the prize pot.

Joe and Stacey have been dating since early 2016 – and while they initially kept their romance secret, have since had no issue sharing their love for one another.

They are currently not engaged, although there have been numeruos rumours .

Despite their romance, Stacey has said that she may not have children with Joe, who has a son, Harry, from a previous relationship, as she doesn’t want her three children to have three different dads.

What happened with Stacey Solomon’s intimate pics being leaked?

In April 2017 snaps of Stacey posing in her underwear were uploaded to X-rated web forums, along with nude shots said to be of the popular star.
