'I used to hate my side profile' Stacey Solomon praised by fans over candid post about her nose

'Thank G-d for Barbra Striesand'

Loose Women favourite Stacey Solomon has taken to Instagram to open about her insecurities.

After taking part in the Loose Women #MyBodyMyStory campaign, the mum-of-two felt it important to admit that while she is more confident about herself she still has hang ups - and in the past, has been particularly conscious of her nose.

Sharing the side profile shot with her 587k followers, Stacey had swept her hair into a top knot bun to show off her natural beauty, and was wearing only minimal make-up.

Talking openly about the subject, the 28-year old admitted that her nose was the one feature she is still most insecure about.

The TV personality wrote: 'I used to hate my side profile because of my nose and be so sad I didn't have a smooth cute button pixie nose (which is what I thought was the ultimate sign of beauty)👃'.

'Even the emoji is smooth 😂 but now I feel like I'm unique with lots of different bits and bumps that make me, me.'

The singer went on to praise Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand for 'rocking their amazing noses since day one'.

'Sometimes the things we are most insecure about can become our best friends,' she declared, adding positive hashtags like #loveyourself #wearealldifferent and #beautiful.

The candid post had fans applauding the TV star, with one follower writing: 'So true! We are all perfect in our own way..let's rock the nose in all its shape and forms.. yours is gorgeous.. keep it that way😘 true beauty'.

Another said: 'thank you for posting this as it's made me feel better about myself and I hope u can reply to this as ure an inspiration xx', whilst a third wished they could be 'more like' Stacey: 'I wish I could accept my nose like you do. I hate it, it's huge and has a bump.'

'Hate mine too!!! Always wanted a nose job but I worry about what I'd be teaching my daughter,' agreed another fan.
