Stacey Solomon has shrugged off trolls as "hilarious", sharing her self-confidence as she says she thinks she is "really pretty".

The Loose Women star first found fame as an X Factor contestant in 2009, but has rebranded as a DIY expert through TV show Sort Your Life Out, a home organising book and posting updates from her home Pickle Cottage on social media.

But while many celebrities find being targeted by cruel comments online a tough side of fame, mum-of-five Solomon has admitted she doesn't really get affected by trolling as she feels secure in herself.

Solomon, who shares her youngest three children with husband Joe Swash, told the Radio Times: "This probably sounds weird when I say it, but I think I’m really pretty. I know that sounds really big-headed, but I like what I look like. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with me."

The TV star said she felt "neutral" about her looks and doesn't "put that much onus on what I see in the mirror", adding that if she felt particularly bothered about how she looked then she could "get some work done" but doesn't feel she wants to.

Although Solomon has many fans who love her kind-hearted, warm approach to the families she helps on BBC series Sort Your Life Out, like others in the public eye she has been on the receiving end of trolling - but explained why it doesn't bother her.

She said: "I find trolls hilarious. I’ve made peace in my mind with them. Do you know how much effort it is for someone to post a comment? About one percent of the people that see your post will comment. That is a small minority of people. Imagine going to all that effort to say something horrible."

Recently, Loose Women's Linda Robson told how co-star Solomon had helped her when she hit a low point with mental health struggles in 2018.

"It all started in Ibiza, we used to go to a bootcamp, me and the Loose Women every summer," Robson told This Morning. "Then one year when I went I just found it really hard to get through the day. I started drinking, I'd never drunk before. Drinking anything to black out."

She added of her co-stars: "They were all amazing. When I was off they'd ring my kids every day to see if I was ok, Janet (Street-Porter) and all the girls.

"But it was Stacey while we was in Ibiza that came home early with me, because I had a proper breakdown out there and I went straight to a rehab place."
