The authority said: "We received nine complaints from members of the public challenging whether three posts on Stacey Solomon's Instagram Story were obviously identifiable as ads.

"We contacted Stacey who told us that the ads were no longer online as the Instagram stories had expired, but that they would ensure future posts would be clearly labelled as ads."

ED! had contacted Stacey's reps for comment.

It seems Joe had no issue with the decision - to the point where the quarantine could actually deliver a new addition to their family.

Stacey, who welcomed her first child, baby Rex, with Joe last year, said recently that her partner was trying to get her pregnant again.

She also shared a clip of Joe cleaning their windows and joked, "This is how we got pregnant last time!". Etta James' I Just Want To Make Love To You played over the video, in which Stacey told fans: "Maybe it's the lockdown but I'm pretty sure he's never looked sexier."
