Stacey Solomon has posted a heartfelt Instagram post in which she details her insecurities over her nose. The Loose Women panellist, 28, admitted that despite being more confident about herself, she still feels conscious about her image. Alongside a picture of her face, Stacey wrote: "Sometimes the things we are most insecure about can become our best friends. 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).
