Stacey Solomon hits back after fans left horrified by way she makes egg and soldiers

Loose Women star and 'Queen of Craft' Stacey Solomon has found herself intertwined in an online debate over the proper way to make eggs and soldiers after leaving fans horrified by her own peculiar technique.

The former X-Factor star and mum-of-four was seen welcoming pals from Wales into her Essex mansion Pickle Cottage for the festive season today, making them a spread of eggs and soldiers to kick the day off.

But after sharing a snap of her breakfast treat, several fans reacted in shock – if not horror – to discover that TV star Stacey doesn't toast her soldiers, instead serving them as buttered bread.

The outcry for Stacey's eggy controversy has been so drastic that she felt the need to address the debate herself on Instagram, unaware that the was initiating such an issue.

Laughing from the sofa of her cottage – which she lives in with former EastEnders star husband Joe Swash and children Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, as well as Rex, two and baby Rose – Stacey expressed her shock.

"Oh my gosh, so many of you are like '[gasp] Is that just egg and bread?'", she chuckles. "I've never ever toasted a soldier in all my life. I've always thought soldiers was just normal bread!"

Looking towards her Welsh pals off camera for support on the matter, she asked: "Do you toast your soldiers Char?"

The viewers could then hear Charlotte responding "never" but noted the possibility that she and Stacey may be in the minority on this.

Another friend then added that her mum used to cook the bread slices when she was growing up but that it didn't continue: "We broke the tradition."

Stacey can then be heard laughing: "Honestly, I only know bready soldiers, and so many of you are like, 'eurgh, you haven't toasted your soldiers!"

"I was concerned, I thought I might have made something disgusting for Charlotte and Harriet!"

Yesterday also saw Stacey unveil her gorgeous Christmas card for this year, while also revealing why it’s a particularly special one.

The crafting queen, who earlier this week enjoyed a spot of late-night shopping, took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal 2022’s Christmas card picture.

She poses with her children Rex and Rose in the beautiful pics, while revealing that the card this year is all about her dogs Peanut and Teddy.

"The cheesy Annual Christmas Card Picture. I didn’t manage to get everyone in this year (there’s too many of us to manage)," she captioned the post, referencing her growing family with her husband.

Continuing her Christmas post, Stacey said it was "nice" to make this year’s card "all about [her dogs] Peanut and Teddy."

"We lost our beautiful Theo last Boxing Day, we are so lucky to have Peanut, and to have been lucky enough to rescue & welcome Teddy to our family. Dogs are just so special," the I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! champion said.

"We miss you Theo. We love you Teddy & Peanut. Thank you for being the best dogs in the whole wide world, And the best friends Rex, Rose, Leighton, Zach & Harry could wish for…To the moon and back boys."
