TV star Stacey Solomon has slammed a weekly magazine for suggesting she may be ‘boring, desperate’ and ‘cheap’. The Loose Women presenter, 28, took to Twitter on Tuesday night where she blasted Now’s editorial staff for their latest issue. The newly-printed edition, dated 3 September, features two images of the young mum with the sub-headline ‘Why fans are SICK of her’.
Inside, it questions her behaviour, authenticity and whether she’s a ‘desperate… show-off’. In an emotionally-charged message, Stacey wrote on Twitter: “That’s the meanest thing I’ve ever seen.” She then wrote a follow-up message, asking the publication to justify its content. “Why the silence? You created an entire cover based on the opinions of maybe 3 people & now there are almost a thousand people holding Now accountable. “Why [do] u feel [the] need to constantly tear people down in a bullying manor [sic].” Her tweet racked-up more than 1,900 likes and 175 re-tweets from fellow celebrities, who shared her annoyance.

Gaby Roslin replied: “Not one word of what those mean people wrote is true. I love you dearly and NEVER EVER let them get you down. “You’re a kind, honest, beautiful girl. A wonderful mummy and joy to be around.” Reality TV hunk Ollie Locke said: “You are always a massive shining light in a room! And everyone bloody adores you! Completely ignore.” Meanwhile, Great British Bake Off’s Candice Brown replied:”What???”. A number of fans also rushed to Stacey’s defence. One replied: “Totally and utterly shameful,” while another quipped: “Disgusting.” Responding, Stacey then said: “I have no idea what’s wrong with some people? Why not just say nothing if that’s all they can conjure up? No wonder people are insecure.”
