Here's everything we know about Stacey's family holiday, including details of the Solomon-Swash's eye-wateringly expensive resort.
Where did Stacey Solomon go on holiday?
Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash did not initially reveal where they were going on holiday.
However, the TV star did say she would share details when they got home as she was so impressed with the resort.
Boasting stunning decor, plus endless activities for the kids, including a children's disco, bingo and more, the Sort Your Life Out star finally revealed the location of her sun-soaked trip.
Next to a smile-filled album of her family by the beach and pool, she wrote: "Our last day in paradise… ☀️🥲 The last ten days have been heaven and I don’t want it all to end 😭 Spending time with my family is just the best thing in world. 🌎 And this place was just MAGICAL."
The busy working mum told fans she stayed at Regnum Carya, an all-inclusive hotel in Belek-Antalya, Turkey – and even secured a cheeky discount.
How much did Stacey Solomon's holiday cost?
Since returning home, Stacey Solomon has received backlash for her family holiday after Instagram users slammed the star for sharing "unrelatable" content.
The former X Factor singer was hit with a slew of comments criticising her for posting about the expensive resort, which allegedly cost upwards of £40,000.
"How relatable a 47k holiday," wrote on furious fan.
"Blimey… I wish I could afford £40k on a holiday. That’s more than a year’s salary for most working-class people," said another user.
Stacey addressed the negative comments on her Stories, suggesting fans unfollow or mute her if her posts offend them.
She wrote: "I’ll do a little holiday Q&A while I’m on my way to work tomorrow night so feel free to ask away.
"If me sharing our holiday doesn’t make you feel good then unfollow or just mute me or something. I love coming on here and sharing things so much and I love our community on here.
"All I ever want is to take you on the adventure with us and hopefully make you smile along the way."
