Stacey Soloman has opened up about being involved in a terrifying car accident where she had to drag her two sons – Zachary, nine, and Leighton, five – out of the car to safety. Chatting on Loose Women, the former X Factor contestant said: "I had a car accident and the children were in it and the car was upside down and it was a horrific scene.

She continued: "'I wasn't in control. As much as I was in control I don't believe I was in control at that point, something in my brain had taken over and said, 'This is what you need to do, this is where you need to go, being in a panic will do nothing.' And naturally my instinct took over." She revealed that her eldest son was terrified by the ordeal while her youngest stayed fast sleep, adding: "Funnily enough my youngest was asleep and remained asleep until I dragged him out of the car, but my eldest was crying and saying, 'Help me mummy.'"
