WATCH: Stacey Solomon Tears Up After Trolls Say She’s ‘Too Dumb’ To Home School Sons
Stacey Solomon was close to tears when she revealed that trolls had branded her "too dumb" to home school her children...
The 28-year-old made the decision last year to take her sons 10-year-old Zachary and 5-year-old Leighton out of mainstream education to home school them instead.
The Loose Women presenter revealed the news in her Fabulous column, and sparked a huge amount of debate with her decision.
Speaking on Loose Women yesterday, an upset Stacey revealed: "I'm usually very good on social media and I think if you're on there, you put yourself out there for comments and all that.
"But recently I've been quite affected, as people have been saying - 'You're so dumb how could you even teach your own kids, you can't even spell your own name'."
She continued: "It really struck a chord with me as for a long time, even as a child, I have come across dumb because of my accent and my personality, and I've always been treated that way."
Her co-panellist Nadia Sawalha reassured her saying: "You are witty, you are smart, and you are a great Loose Woman!"
Christine Lampard also hit back, saying: "It's so ridiculous. It's like, I don't know you, and I have no warrant to have an opinion but I'm still going to tell you. I can't believe people pick their phones up to be horrible!"
Former X-Factor contestant Stacey made the decision to home school her boys after feeling that they were losing their personalities in state school.
Writing in her column, Stacey said: "Zachary would come home from school embarrassed to make jokes and be silly and he became very quiet and a little sad. We spoke about this a lot and he explained to me that his behaviour was deemed naughty and disruptive by teachers and not cool by his peers."
She continued: "He said when he asked questions, he felt they were silly. One stuck out for me in particular. They were studying the Egyptians and he asked, 'but where did the Egyptians come from?' He was told to ask a sensible question."
