Stacey Solomon responds to criticism after fans call her out for ‘£40K holiday’ with family

Stacey Solomon responds to criticism after fans call her out for ‘£40K holiday’ with family

Stacey says she got a discount on the holiday before telling those who don't feel good about it to 'unfollow' her

Stacey Solomon received criticism from her ‘fans’ after she revealed the destination of her adorable family holiday.

The mum-of-five and husband Joe Swash recently enjoyed 10 days in Turkey where she called their hotel ‘paradise’.

Stacey and Joe share three little ones together; Rex, four, Rose, one, and five-month old Belle. She’s also mum to Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, and Joe dad to Harry, 16, from previous relationships.

While on their trip, the Loose Women star kept the details of the holiday under wraps for privacy.

But she revealed the info just before heading home, so her fans too could enjoy a gorgeous getaway.

Stacey wrote on Instagram: “Our last day in paradise… The last ten days have been heaven and I don’t want it all to end. Spending time with my family is just the best thing in world. And this place was just MAGICAL.

“Thank you for the memories @regnumcarya too the moon and back family. Ad we got a discount from our travel agent @trendingtravel on this hotel.”

They went on a family holiday to a resort in Turkey.

With 5.7 million followers on Instagram, she had previously asked her followers for advice in finding a last-minute destination for their holiday and ended up using her trusty travel agent and getting a discount.

But not all her fans are too impressed with her choice of hotel; the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort in Antalya.

MyLondon reports that the cheapest room for a family the same size as Stacey's for 3 August to 13 August next year at the hotel came to €23,584 (£20,300).

One fumed: “Why do you need discount off a holiday? You are richer than most of the average people commenting on this post!”

Another wrote: “The holiday/price isn't the issue. If you have this sort of money then it's there to be enjoyed. However...Stacey's 'brand' has always been being 'relatable' etc etc..."

Stacey and Joe have six kids between them.

They continued: “One of her previous posts was about going to 'only the buffet and bingo'...which gives the impression that it's some sort of package holiday that the average family might go to.

“And it's definitely not.. Again; I don't begrudge them a holiday at all."

But Stacey has since hit back at the criticism, writing on her Instagram story: “If me sharing our holiday doesn't make you feel good then unfollow or just mute me or something.

"I love coming on here and sharing things so much and I love out community on here. All I ever want is to take you on the adventure with us and hopefully make you smile along the way.”

And some fans were quick to defend her, with one saying: “Let her & her family enjoy the holiday & live life. Life is for living and making memories.”
