She explained that becoming a mother to Zachary, 12, while she was still living at home with her family saw her focus on tidying, as it allowed her to get some control back in her life.

Writing in her book Tap to Tidy, which is being serialised by the Daily Mail, Stacey said: "At a young age - I was just 17 when I became pregnant - I became a mum myself.

"That meant there was me, my brother, my sister, my baby son, Zachary, and my mum all living in one small house, with no space to be messy.

"As such a young mum, I felt completely out of control and out of my depth.

She's since added: "I just remember feeling so ashamed. I know that sounds awful but when I was pregnant with Zach, all I felt the whole way through was shame,"

"I looked like a baby as well. I looked about six. I think people just looked and were like, 'ugh, why is she pregnant?' Maybe it's a bit of a trauma I just haven't addressed."
