Stacey Solomon, 34, has been trolled by fans online after showcasing her decorations for Belle's first birthday.

The Loose Women panelist was busy preparing Pickle Cottage last weekend for her youngest child's first birthday party, and decided to share her decorating journey online.

Stacey-who is married to ex-EastEnders actor Joe Swash, 42- has learnt a few tips from presenting Sort Your Life Out and decided to make a giant make cupcake to celebrate Belle's big day.

Despite saving money making the DIY gift, the special occasion called for an expensive looking flower garland, which ended up riling up some of her followers.

This isn't the first time Stacey has been accused of 'flaunting her wealth', after she was criticised for bringing her whole family on a trip to Jamaica over the festive period.

After posting pictures of her time abroad, fans hit out at Stacey regarding how much the trip would cost.

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 🤢."
