Stacey Solomon reveals her ‘dirty hair, house and broken nails’ amid homeschool pressure

STACEY Solomon has opened up about embracing her “dirty hair”, “dirty house” and “broken nails” during the third national lockdown.

The 31-year-old mum-of-three took to Instagram to tell fans she felt like she was “failing” to juggle household responsibilities and work, while also taking care of homeschooling her two eldest sons, 12-year-old Zachary and Leighton, eight.

In several upbeat video clips, Stacey danced with a hoover to Lizzo’s catchy hit single Good As Hell.

And she wrote alongside them: “Thing is it feels like Groundhog Day at the moment.

"And there's so much pressure on you to be everything to everyone which is impossible..."

"So lots of us feel like we are failing, but the truth us just to get through the day however you get through it is enough. 

“Don’t be hard on yourself. It’s okay to feel like you just can’t do it.

“Embrace it. The dirty hair. The dirty house. The broken nails. The ‘not so great engagement’ messages from the schools. We are all getting them don’t worry.

“But we are just doing what we need to, to get through. Whatever the hell that is, give yourself a break and just do you, don’t worry.”

Just hours earlier, Stacey – who also looks after her one-year-old son Rex – wrote a message explaining she struggles to get anything done but homeschool and the bare minimum.

The Loose Women panellist shared the candid admission after detailing the process of fitting her new sofa cover in various Instagram Stories.

She told fans in a message: “I’m so sorry for my rubbish content. I don’t know what’s happened to me but I can’t manage to get more than one thing done in a day around homeschooling, catching up with work I’m really behind on, and making food for the boy who are always hungry.”

Though fans actually LOVED the sofa-related posts, particularly given Stacey managed to completely hide a stain with a cover costing just £29.

And despite many celebrity parents – including Jacqueline Jossa and Catherine Tyldesley – being in the same homeschool boat as Stacey, she in particular has had quite the hectic week.

The former X Factor singer confessed she forgot fiancé Joe Swash’s birthday in amidst the chaos of life stuck at home – and revealed she made a last minute dash online to panic buy a gift for him.
