Stacey Solomon has demanded immediate action be taken to stop the sick Momo Challenge that is sweeping the internet.
The Loose Women star, currently pregnant with her third child, took to Twitter to slam the sick social media trend that is leaving children terrified - and putting their lives at risk.
The 29-year-old raged: "Okay what the *** is Momo and why have I had to see this horrific thing about 22 times in a week.
Stacey is also mum to Zachary, 10, and Leighton, 7.
She accompanied the tweet with Facebook comments from parents sharing examples of their children coming in to contact with the 'game', with one claiming that their own youngster heard something sinister in their headset whilst playing Fortnite.

For those who haven't heard about the Momo Challenge, it's a terrifying game which is a form of cyber bullying that uses a scary image of a character called Momo to entice kids to carry out dangerous tasks.
The game has started spreading rapidly over the past few weeks, leaving parents at a loss about how to combat the disturbing trend and keep their families safe.

One Twitter user called Samantha Easley said: "My 8 4 and 2 year old share and iPad and they watch YouTube kids. I showed my 8 and 4 year old a picture yesterday morning and my 8year old was in hysterics and said we can’t talk about it. And my 4 year old said she scares him in the middle of Peter rabbit. YouTube is deleted!!"
Others also expressed a similar sentiment about banning smart devices and websites such as YouTube.
