Stacey Solomon admits she ‘forgot to pick up kids from school' as she issues plea to fans

The former X Factor star said during a chat on Virgin Radio today: “I used to pack all of their school bags and iron all their clothes and put it out for them and make sure it was ready the next day, but it just made them so lazy.”

She added: “If I was going to work one day I would literally get phone calls from Joe saying ‘where’s the uniform? They don’t know where this is. They haven’t done that’ and it just didn’t serve a purpose.”

Explaining her U-turn on the matter, Stacey said: “In the end, I just thought – maybe about a year ago – they’re going to have to do it themselves and take the responsibility and if they forget their PE kit they’ll have to get the detention, that is life.”

“I don’t tidy the big boys rooms, I don’t go in there,” the star went on to admit.
