Stacey Solomon has been praised for a hilarious live Instagram video for fans, having dyed her hair on camera to get rid of the grey roots - which she puts down to the stresses of motherhood.
While she regularly posts about her happy family life with her large brood, she’s admitted she thinks she’ll ‘age quicker’ because of ‘all the children’.
The Loose Women star hosted an Instagram Live as part of an ad campaign for L’Oreal, saying she planned to get rid of her ‘full head of grey’.
She showed off her roots to the camera, leaning in for a close-up with a mortified expression on her face.
Solomon then slapped on some disposable gloves and mixed up the hair dye, before sitting with a towel around her as she covered her head in the mixture – L’Oreal’s Preference 9.12, if you were wondering.
"Is anyone else 33 and with a full head of grey?" She asked.
Parting her hair to show off the roots, she continued: "This is what five kids does. It's the kids, I'm telling you.
"I've got the longest roots ever. I think that I'm getting older quicker. My body can't take it anymore!
"I'm going to age quicker because of all the children."
Thankfully, the dye seemed to do the trick and she was happy with the result.
“It’s not fully dry I can’t be bothered!” she said in a follow-up snap.
“But it’s a MILLION times better, I'm so happy I will have nice hair for holiday.
“It’s the same colour I used every time.”
And while Solomon was pleased with the result, many of her fans told her they loved seeing the hilarious process.
One told her in a message: “Awww Stace! Love you, please do more lives when you can make me smile.”
Someone else agreed: “Literally the best live, please do these more!”
Another said: “Loved that live I was totally invested in just watching [you] dye your hair.”
A fourth wrote: “That was the best live I’ve watched in years.”
A fifth added: “Looks amazing. [Your] live made me laugh so much, you really lifted my mood thank you!”
Solomon was clearly chuffed with the reaction, and vowed to ‘do more random lives’ in the future.
"I actually loved that so much,” she said.
