Stacey Solomon has shared a candid insight into her life, revealing how she ended up with a black eye due to what she describes as her "toxic trait". The popular TV personality and presenter of Loose Women and Sort Your Life Out took to Instagram to show off her injury, a noticeable bruised eye with a small cut above it.

She humorously questioned her own behaviour with her followers, saying: "Why am I like this." Solomon had earlier introduced her fans to the newest members of her family two adorable ducklings.

The mishap occurred while she was setting up a new home for the ducklings. After returning from filming Loose Women on Monday, she discovered that the flat-pack duck coop had arrived.

Despite the dwindling daylight and her packed schedule, Solomon felt compelled to assemble it immediately. She explained to her fans: "I thought if I don't put it up right this second I won't put it up till the weekend. Any normal person would say it's fine, put it up at the weekend and they're not going to be in that coop for another six weeks but my toxic trait is if there's something in front of me I have to do it immediately. I don't know why I'm like that.", reports Nottinghamshire Live.

While attempting to erect the coop, she accidentally dropped a piece of the roof onto her eye. Solomon laughed off the incident, adding: ""Why am I like this?

"So that'll be fun at the shoot tomorrow - it'll probably be worse tomorrow. It's always worse the day after the day after. But it was worth it."

Displaying images of the coop, she expressed that although there's still much to complete - such as finalising the base and excavating a pond - it was "really cool". She further commented: "I'm very excited".

Previously, Stacey introduced two ducklings in a video where they were being affectionately cuddled by her children Rex, aged five, and Rose, aged two. At that time, she posted: "Welcome To Pickle Cottage Little Ones. We are so excited to love you and we hope you love living here and being a part of our crazy family."
