Stacey Solomon reveals sad reason why she will never sing again after finding fame on X Factor

The Loose Women star opened up about her rise to fame

Stacey Solomon has revealed the sad reason why she will never sing again after first rising to fame following her stint on The X-Factor back in 2009.

The reality TV star first pulled on our heartstrings aged just 19 when she rocked up to the singing competition in 2009 to deliver her touching rendition of 'What A Wonderful World'.

Stacey went on to be mentored by Dannii Minogue and won fans' hearts throughout her time on the ITV show before eventually coming in third place after runner-up, Olly Murs, and winner Joe McElderry.

While she belted out incredible covers, including the likes of Coldplay's 'The Scientist', Dusty Springfield's 'Son Of A Preacher Man' and Queen's 'Who Wants To Live Forever' - the 34-year-old has since revealed she won't be releasing any new music.

Opening up about the thing that launched her into a life in the spotlight, Stacey admitted, per The Mirror: "I love singing but I don't love it as a job.

"Does that sound weird? I enjoy it but I find it so nerve-racking to do it for a job. I much prefer being in the presenting role. I love meeting and talking to people."

Some 15 years following her telly debut, Stacey has gone one to become one of the UK's biggest reality stars and social media personalities, boasting a hefty 5.8 million Instagram followers with appearances on a handful of TV programmes including I'm a Celebrity, Sort Your Life Out and Loose Women.

Stacey Solomon first rose to fame on X Factor back in 2009.

"People will say, 'Oh you work hard'," Stacey continued. "But the reality is I got so lucky. I worked really hard and gave it my absolute best, but I still have been lucky to have fallen into those situations where somebody gave me an opportunity."

She added: "Honestly, I'm just running with it. I'll keep going until it finishes."

Stacey and her hubby, Joe Swash, 42, have six kids between them in their blended family.

The pair share three children together, Rex, Rose and Belle, but Joe also has one other kid from a previous relationship, Harry, while Stacey has two sons, Zachary and Leighton, from two other previous relationships.

They have previously opened up about how they are 'constantly exhausted' raising their six children together.

The EastEnders star previously told The Mirror: "It is exhausting. But I think your body just adapts to your situation.

The mum-of-six has since revealed why she won't be releasing new music anytime soon.

"So after you’ve had three kids, four, five or six makes no difference. Me and Stacey have been tired for so long now that it’s become the norm."

But clearly having a whole bunch of children has paid off, as Joe revealed his older kids are a 'godsend'.

"They really help out," he said. "They’re always helping with dinner, they help feed the kids, they’re amazing.

"We’re really proud of our kids, how they all muck in and help - and we don’t ask them either, it’s all done out of love. It’s lovely to see."

The concluded: "It is what it is, but we wouldn’t change it. There’s so much love in this house for all these kids. We think we’re really lucky."
