“I did consider keeping them to myself but it didn’t feel right…” she continued, attaching a screengrab of well-wishers send her their best to her by mistake.
The 29-year-old ITV favourite also saluted her fellow broadcaster’s achievement, telling the BBC presenter she “thoroughly deserved” her victory.
“Congratu – bloomin – lations!!!! Ballroom queen,” Stacey S tweeted.
Among the misdirected messages was one from a viewer who detailed how a young fan she knew hoped to appear on the dance show himself, inspired by the Stacey who has never performed on it.
“He now also plans to appear on Strictly and has decided is partner will be Stacey Solomon,” the tale concluded.
