Loose Women star Stacey Solomon is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Joe Swash soon – although according to her, she might actually be pregnant with a Furby.

The star posted a photo of her furry belly last week and wondered where it came from, which caused concern from fans.

On today's (April 24) instalment of the panel show, Stacey was asked about her belly and said: "I was laying there and... I don't get much time to lay down and stare at myself.

"So I looked down and I thought, 'Well, that's new'. Not the bump!"

Janet asked if the hair sprouted overnight, and she said: "Yeah... I've always had the snail trail, as my sister calls it, which is the hairy line that goes down your belly. It's a normal thing.

"I've always had the line but all of a sudden I had this fuzz. I was so intrigued I wanted to know what it was and why, what had happened?"

Ruth Langsford said she checked and that it's common and nothing to worry about, just increased hormones and estrogen. Apparently it means that Stacey is carrying a boy... according to the old wives' tale, at least.

Recently, Stacey celebrated her pregnant body's transformation and her stretch marks, writing: "I honestly love how much stretch marks shine in the sun! Natural glitter."

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
