Sharing a video of the surprise on her Instagram account, Stacey revealed that she had booked a holiday to Jamaica for a total of 20 members of her family, stating that she "never thought she'd be able to do this".
While many fans were quick to share their excitement for Stacey and her family, some people accused the TV personality and social media star of 'flaunting her wealth' during a difficult period for many families.
One person commented: "I just wonder, when lots of people are struggling financially to even get through Christmas, whether this really needs to be shared. I think people forget that posting everything on social media is optional."
Another wrote: "It’s a disgusting display of wealth while everyone in the country is struggling 🤢."

A second posted: "To those moaning that posting this is wrong then come off social media if it affects you! One day you will be better off and not think twice about posting your good times too!"
While Stacey hasn't directly responded to these comments, she appears to have hit back with a New Years post where she spoke about "letting go of negativity".
Posting a collection of pictures from her trip, she wrote: "Firstly, I just want to say, thank you for all of your kindness in 2023. I’m so grateful for this platform & all of the happiness and friendship it brings. I can’t wait to share another year with you, and I hope I can bring a smile or some comfort in to your 2024.
"But most of all, anything that maybe wasn’t right or didn’t sit well or you wished you could have done or that you held back from last year, I hope you go and get it this year.
"It’s definitely time to let go of the negativity or those people trying to put you down and GO AND DO YOU! You deserve it. Let this be YOUR year. And say f**k it to anyone or anything that pulls you away from the love & happiness you deserve. Love you all to the moon and back. 2024 let’s do this!"
