Stacey Solomon has told her fans that she’s banning herself from using her phone as is locking it away in a drawer as she temporarily quits social media.
The telly personality , 31, said she’s putting her phone away until Sunday, meaning she won’t be using her beloved Instagram to keep in touch with her fans.
The mum-of-three often takes short social media breaks to have phone-free days with her family.
Stacey spent her Friday night busying around making holly out of green icing as she berated herself for “leaving everything to the last minute” while she prepared treats for her local homeless shelter’s Christmas party.
She took to her Instagram Story to tell fans she was quitting social media for the weekend while she spent time with her kids and partner Joe Swash and helping out at the shelter.
She told her 3.9 million followers: “I’m going to put my phone in a drawer for the night and tomorrow as I’ll be at the shelter and I just wanted to say I hope you have a lovely weekend.”
Stacey signed off: “I love you loads and I’ll see you on Sunday.”
The Loose Women panelist often takes breaks from the online world, citing the massive benefit they have on her mental health.
Stacey has been open about her battles with anxiety and revealed how she sometimes struggles to cope with trolling.
Proving her point just minutes later, Stacey shared a screenshot of a message from a nasty troll who’d written to her to say: “Nobody cares.”
“Before I go, it’s nice to end the evening on a high…” poor Stacey wrote alongside the image.
“Cheers Wilma. Happy Friday bubs,” the mum-of-three shrugged off.
Later in the evening Stacey showed off her creations ahead of Saturday’s party.
Snapping a picture of her delicious Christmas pudding bumble cakes, she wrote: “For everyone but Wilma… I [heart] u.” [sic]
Stacey “went with standard leaves” after giving up on making the intricate holy to decorations for the tops of the cakes.
She boxes her creations up by the front door before treating herself to a well-earned bath.
Her social media break comes just days after she was forced to hit back at critics who accused her of failing to show the “reality” of motherhood.
Stacey, who is a proud mum to Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and Rex, one, decided to address the shamers as she slammed the critics for “indirectly shaming a parent,” explaining that it was “just the worst”.
