Joe Swash has been slammed by fans for boasting about getting a good night’s sleep.

The TV presenter, who recently welcomed son Rex with girlfriend Stacey Solomon, was pulled up by fans for showing off that he was getting a good night’s sleep without his other half.

The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here Now host took to Instagram to share an image of himself jetting off on a work trip and enjoying a deep sleep while cosied up in his seat under an aeroplane blanket on a British Airways flight.

Despite being upright in a seat, Joe captioned his snap: ‘Best sleep I’ve had in ages thanks @british_airways,’ joking that he has been sleep-deprived ever since his youngest son arrived.

However, followers went on to point out that it was unfair on mum-of-three Stacey Solomon, who was left at home with seven-week-old Rex and her older sons 11-year-old Zachary and seven-year-old Leighton, who she has from a previous relationship.

‘I’m sure @staceysolomon will be thrilled when she sees this 🤣🤣,’ wrote one follower, ‘nothing worse than sleep deprivation and seeing your other half snoozing!!!!🤣’

‘@realjoeswashy I think @staceysolomon would like a decent nights sleep too,’ added another, ‘but please treat her to a fabulous hotel.....with maybe a spa 😉’.

‘That wont go down well with the wife still doing the night shifts 🙄,’ commented another.

Others agreed, writing: ‘I’m sure @staceysolomon is very jealous’, ‘You’re getting sleep but your Mrs isn’t’ and ‘I bet @staceysolomon wants to beat you like a drum when she sees this 😉’.

However, there were some fans who supported Joe in what he was doing, saying that he should take every opportunity for rest.

‘Fab dad,’ commented one, ‘sleep whilst you can @realjoeswashy xx your the real deal! Wishing I was Stacey Solomon 😍😍’.

‘Fair Play Joe,’ added another, ‘you’re out earning for your family 👍🏼👍🏼’ and another wrote ‘Aww he knackered bless’.

Let’s hope Stacey manages to get some rest while she’s at home!
