Stacey Solomon has admitted she is feeling "so emotional" after her children finally return to school for the first time in six months.

The Loose Women star, 30, posted on Instagram saying that she didn't know if she's gutted or relieved for sending Leighton, eight, and Zachary, 12, back.

Stacey has a one-year-old child, Rex, with her boyfriend Joe Swash, and her two older sons from previous relationships.

She showed her fans her lunch and bag prep for the older boys and said: "I'm actually so emotional right now. It's silly."

In the clips, she makes sure Leighton and Zachary have their hand sanitisers with them and fills up a bottle with their names on before clipping them it onto their backpacks.

The mum-of-three even rearranges their wardrobes and changes the casual clothes to school uniforms.

She also sends other mums a message to remind them to pack lunch instead of putting an empty box inside the bag.

When Stacey gets to sit down to have a chocolate snack, she says: "I can't sleep. I just can't stop thinking about how long it's been.

"It's been six months. We did it!"

She laughs and congratulates her fans for getting through the lockdown.

The former X Factor star then posted a montage of all the adventures the family have got up to while schools have been shut.

"Also don't underestimate how hard you've worked and how much you've achieved by being thrown into the deep end of home educating while facing struggles of working, losing work, caring for family, losing people and not knowing if everything will be ok," she wrote in the caption.

Stacey posted videos of the children exercising together to Joe Wicks and making DIY science experiments at home.

She said: "Boys, it's been a crazy six months. We've tried time tables, PE'd with Joe Wicks, crafted, planted and even built out our own amusements."
