After X Factor and victory in the jungle, Stacey has gone on to be a Loose Women regular and a frequent guest on chat and panel shows from 8 Out of 10 Cats to Celebrity Mastermind.


Biography

Stacey Solomon is a veteran of not one but two of the biggest reality shows on TV. She came to public attention as a contestant on The X Factor and later went on to win I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! She’s now a presenter in her own right, regularly appearing on Loose Women and having co-hosted I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!: Extra Camp.

As a 20-year-old single mother from Essex, Stacey entered the sixth series of The X Factor without the same stage school background many other contests have, just a passion for music and a striking voice. She sailed through the early rounds, excelled on the X Factor tour, and made it to the final, becoming the last woman in the competition, finally beaten by Olly Murs, and winner Joe Mcelderry.

Her X Factor experience had made her a public favourite, and rather than going straight into the studio Stacey went into the jungle and the terrors of I'm a Celebrity... Further proving her popularity, Stacey went on to beat Shaun Ryder in the final and was crowned ‘Queen of the Jungle’ with over 80% of the vote.

Since her jungle exploits, Stacey has appeared on Celebrity Juice, 8 Out of 10 Cats, and Celebrity Mastermind amongst other shows. She has sung at the FA Cup final, and also at the National Television Awards where she reunited with Shaun Ryder to perform the Happy Monday’s classic Step On. She also returned to X Factor to co-host the show from her native Essex, fronted Iceland’s Christmas ad campaign including singing the accompanying Driving Home for Christmas (her first solo single) and hosted Sky Living’s dating show The Love Machine with Chris Moyles.
