Stacey Solomon has shared her "sadness" after her two oldest sons asked to stay longer at their respective dads' houses.

The I'm A Celeb winner's sons Zachary, 12, and eight-year-old Leighton usually live with their mum and her fiance Joe Swash, and the couple's one-year-old son Rex.

But they regularly visit their dads' houses for the weekend, something Stacey encourages.

Now, she said, with the boys home-schooling, they have asked to stay on longer.

She explained to her 4 million Instagram followers: "I'm really missing the big pickles today.

"They wanted to stay longer at their dads and because they are doing school from home they can."

"I do get sad when they don't want to come home, but I know how happy it will make their dads and I never want to stop them from making memories with their family."

But while she misses her boys, Stacey knows they are happy.

She added: "Oh my gosh I miss them. It's lovely for a couple of days less mess, less noise but then the house just feels so empty and Rex looks for them everywhere."

The Loose Women panelist, 31, said this week she was "embarrassed" when she got pregnant with her son Zachary when she was just 17 years old.

Speaking on Monday's episode of the ITV show, Stacey said: "I remember just being so ashamed, I know thats sounds awful but all the way through I just felt shame."

She added: "I looked like a baby as well, I looked about six."

"Maybe it's a bit of a trauma I just haven't addressed," Stacey went on.

Stacey welcomed her first son with her childhood sweetheart Dean Cox.

Four years later, Stacey welcomed Leighton with her ex-fiancé Aaron Barnham.
