Stacey Solomon, 30, got a special shout out on Coronation Street on Wednesday night and told the Loose Women panel it was the “highlight of her week”.

The popular television personality, who has been a regular fixture on the ITV lunchtime show since 2016, was in for a surprise when she sat down to watch the soap opera in the evening.

Stacey lives with boyfriend and Dancing on Ice star Joe Swash, 37, and is mum to their seven-month-old son Rex and her older children Zachary, 11, and Leighton, seven.

During an episode of Coronation Street on Wednesday evening, Gail Platt name dropped the star during a conversation with her son David, while on the way to visit daughter-in-law Shona Ramsey in hospital.

Gail, played by actress Helen Worth, compared herself to the cheerful panelist after her son accused her of being the “voice of doom”.

When asked “How?” by David, she said: ”Well if I was on the Loose Women panel I’d be Stacey Solomon.”

“What’s that mean?” he asked.

She went on to explain her reasoning: “Well she’s always very perky.”

Talking to her Loose Women co-stars the following day, mum-of-three Stacey said: “That was the highlight of my week.”

Noting her shock at hearing her name mentioned she added: “I spat my drink out.”

Stacey also shared her delight on Twitter, sharing a Tweet from the official Coronation Street Twitter account, which illustrated Gail’s quote, with her 1.5 million followers.

She wrote: “I love this soooo much @itvcorrie.”(sic)

Twitter users took to the comments section to share their thoughts.
