Celebrity mum Stacey stops off at Merry Hill

Newly crowned celebrity mum of the year, Stacey Solomon stopped off at Merry Hill as part of a baby extravaganza.

The X Factor star and winner of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, co-hosted the Tummy to Mummy event at the shopping mall on Saturday July 2.

The bubbly 21 year-old and mum to three-year old Zachary, was recently awarded the Celebrity Mother of the Year accolade by FoxyBingo.com and took to the stage to talk about being a working mum and  to share her fashion tips as part of the centre’s free event.

Since being crowned Queen of the Jungle during the last series, Stacey has had a bestselling book, co-hosted a prime time Saturday night TV show, become the new face of frozen food chain Iceland  and is currently writing and recording a new album.

But speaking to the News, Stacey named the Celebrity Mum of the Year award as her “biggest honour”.

She said:”I’ve had an absolutely fantastic year so far, but I was really honoured to get the award as I’ve never ever been complimented on my parenting skills before.”

Stacey, who was joined at the event by her own mum Fiona and Zachary, said her youngster was the reason she entered X Factor, to “be able to provide for him and give him the opportunities” she  never had.

The three-day event at Fountain Square, also showcased the latest maternity and baby fashions, with experts on hand to share top tips and advice.

Kelly Reed, Merry Hill marketing manager, said: “We were delighted to have Stacey on board for our Tummy to Mummy event – the crowds loved her.”

Neighbours News is a non-profit voluntary organisation, formally constitued as a group since September 1999 on the Castle & Priory Ward in Dudley. We produce community newsletters for residents. As of 2004, we have expanded to other areas (most of which are in high deprivation). We want to get a community newsletter for Brierley Hill circulating, because there is interest, however we need to find any potential funders and anyone who might be interested in sponsoring an edition. High Arcal School in Sedgley has sponsored an edition of the Oval & Tudor News in Upper Gornal, for example. We remove the official language and put it in plain English for people to understand, keeping them informed about local issues, training and job opportunities, developments, town centre events, etc. Our local distribution is carried out by community groups and the print group we use trains people with learning difficulties. We are based on the Pensnett Trading Estate, having relocated offices, due to the demolition work being done on North Priory, where our former premises were in Pine Road.
