Stacey Solomon sacked as Mum of the Year
Tuesday 06 March 2012
Stacey Solomon shocked fans earlier this week when she was spotted puffing on a cigarette in an alley way at seven months pregnant but she has since opened up about her struggle to give up despite knowing that 'it's not ok.'
The former X Factor contestant opened up to the ladies on Loose Women via phone.
She said that while she wasn't trying to defend her actions, she felt some of the criticism she received was a 'little harsh'.
She said: 'All of the responses are something that I deserve. I don’t for one minute think I can sit here and say it is ok – so I can accept that kind of criticism and although it’s not nice to hear I know that its true the health risks and maybe that will give me more power to stop it and nip it in the bud.
'There’s ups and downs to people being critical because it makes you think oh my God, I really must sort this out and you feel even more guilty than you already do because don’t get me wrong I felt guilty before all of this came out.
'But there is a little a bit of you that thinks I love my children with all my heart so some of the comments are a little bit harsh.'
These comments come after the 22-year-old singer was stripped of her Foxy Celebrity Mum of the Year title.
She continued: 'It's absolutely devastating not just because I saw the pictures in the paper – its something I’m not proud of and I’m really, really struggling with in general.
'It’s not just because everyone knows now. Its something that I don’t want to do and that I’m not happy doing so it’s horrible.'
'It’s a horrible habit and I care more about my children than anything in the whole wide world so anything I can do to give up means more to me than anything else or what anyone thinks.'
Explaining the reason for axeing Stacey as their Celebrity Mum of the Year, a statement from Foxy Bingo read:
'Following stories in the newspapers in recent days, Foxy Bingo has taken the decision to stand Stacey down from her position as judge on Foxy Mum and from the voting shortlist for Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year 2012, the winner of which will be announced next week.
'Stacey has apologised to the people at Foxy Bingo and is sorry and embarrassed by her actions. We understand Stacey is doing everything she can to stop smoking and in recent times has cut back dramatically. She's naturally disappointed but accepts Foxy Bingo's decision.'
