Stacey Solomon has revealed that her boyfriend Joe Swash “loves” her bushy pubic hair as she hit back at trolling comments about her body hair.
The 31 year old Loose Women star is somewhat of a sensation on Instagram – with her Tap to Tidy trend going viral as she lets in her 3.8million followers in on her home life filled with thrush-inducing baths and plenty of fun crafts.
But, in recent interview with Fabulous magazine, The X Factor star recognised there is a negative she to social media, revealing she has been trolled over her body hair.
Stacey, who recently revealed her teeth fell out during her pregnancy, said: “They’re not even that bloody hairy! I wonder if people are actually seeing arm hair any more. Are people airbrushing that off now as well? I actually don’t see hairy anything on women these days. So when people are seeing a tiny bit of hair they’re like: ‘What the hell? She’s a monster!’

“I’m not ashamed of my body hair, people being disgusted by it is ridiculous because it’s obviously meant to be there!”
Stacey continued to reveal she embraces her body hair and so does her 38 year old boyfriend Joe, who she shares son Rex, one, with.
TV star Stacey explained: “I’m not ashamed of my body hair, people being disgusted by it is ridiculous because it’s obviously meant to be there! When did people start getting offended by it?
“I remember as a teenager, my friends would be like: ‘Eww, you’ve got pubes, that’s dirty.’ But without it, I thought I looked about six years old.
“What man is going to be attracted to a noonie that looks like a baby’s? In the ’70s it was all about the bush, wasn’t it? What changed? Luckily, Joe loves the bush, so that’s OK!”
Stacey, who’s boyfriend Joe recently revealed he wants more kids, revealed she tries not to let the trolls, who she nicknames Susan, get to her but it can affect her at times.
She explained: “It’s so silly. What kind of insult is calling me goofy? Sometimes, there are moments when I’m hormonal where I find it difficult, but most of the time I feel sorry for people who feel they have to be like that.
“How awful that your only pleasure is trying to drag someone else down. I think they’re crying out for attention, which is really sad. The only way that they can change my mood is if I let them, so I take the power back because they don’t deserve to have it. They can’t upset me if I’m not upset.
“They can’t say: ‘You’re a goofy, ugly, lying cow’ because I know I’m not. I’m getting on with my life, trying to be me. They should have no influence in your life whatsoever.”
But, Stacey does genuinely appreciate the supporters who she has connected with on Instagram, as she revealed: “I don’t have thousands of friends in real life. I don’t have many friends at all. I have three or four I’ve had all my life and a couple more I’ve met along the way and that’s it.
“The community on Instagram is one of the most uplifting places and being able to escape into another world with these people is a real lifeline sometimes.
“It’s comfort and support and interaction. Feeling like you are part of something, like a big WhatsApp group. There is something about women coming together and going: ‘I’ve got your back.’ It’s something really special.”
