Stacey Solomon On X Factor

Stacey appeared in the 2009 series of X Factor (series 6), reaching the final and coming third after runner-up Olly Murs and winner Joe McElderry.

Mentored by Dannii Minogue, who had the Girls category for that year, Stacey won a legion of fans with her bubbly personality, wowing viewers as she switched from her thick Dagenham accent to sing beautifully week after week.

Stacey performed a variety of songs on the show, including a duet of "Feeling Good" with Michael Buble in the live final. She reached number one during her time on the X Factor as part of the X Factor finalists' annual charity single, which in this instance was a cover version of "You are Not Alone".

Stacey received the most public votes twice during the show, in weks 2 and 6.

Stacey Solomon - Queen Of The Jungle!

I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here was first broadcast in 2002 on ITV in the UK.

Hosted by popular duo Ant & Dec, the show is a reality game show where a group of celebrities are dropped off in the Australian "jungle" and forced to compete in gruesome trials in order to win food and votes.

Viewers initially vote for the celeb they want to see do a trial during the first week, after which they then start voting for the celeb they want to win.

Each day in the second week, the celeb with the least votes leaves the jungle.

The winner is crowned King or Queen of the Jungle.

A portion of the phone line revenue goes to charities chosen by the celebrities.

Stacey Solomon was favourite to win the show from the very start. Combining genuine warmth and sweet likability with a steely determination in her jungle tasks, Stacey was named by most of her fellow camp mates as their choice for winning the show.

Stacey was described by fellow contestants as "having a unique personality", "clever", "funny", "bubbly" and "positive", with Dom Joly describing her as "one of the most extraordinary people I've ever met."

      I have to admit I think Stacey Solomon is one of the genuinely nicest people we have seen on TV for years. My kids love her too and the youngest does a great impersonation of Stacey!
