Her first post was an adorable clip of her young son Rex, two, playing on his swing, and in her caption she apologised to her fans for being "quiet" and revealed that she'd been suffering from a medical issue. "Sorry I've been so quiet, I got mastitis and felt like my boobs were on fire," she explained, adding the crying with laughter and monkey covering its eyes emoji.

The Loose Women star then shared the content that fans would've been missing as she showcased a makeover of one of her sinks, before posing in a beautiful sundress.

Mastitis is an inflammation of breast tissue that sometimes involves an infection. It may result in breast pain, swelling, warmth and redness and most commonly affects those who are breast-feeding.

The condition couldn't have come at a worse time for the star as she's currently in the midst of planning her upcoming wedding to fiancé Joe Swash.


Stacey revealed why she'd been absent

The pair had planned to get married last year, but they postponed it when Stacey fell pregnant with their daughter, as they wanted to make sure that their little girl would be present at their nuptials.

"This morning I had to meet with the caterers, florists & everyone in between because I almost forgot we are getting married in three months' time. We are on the last part now, the aisle," she wrote, followed by a crying face emoji.
