Strictly star Katya Jones is always sharing snippets of her daily life on Instagram Stories, and on Thursday she opened up to her followers about the skin breakouts she's been experiencing, even asking fans for advice. After sharing some shots from her glamorous new photoshoot with husband Neil ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals tour, she posted a makeup-free selfie showing some blemishes on her forehead. "And this is the reality!! Stress has brought them all out," she wrote with a sad-face emoji. "Any advice on how to get rid of these bad boys?"

Loose Woman Stacey is also refreshingly honest about her skin

Stacey often shares candid photos with her own followers, writing in 2018: "You don’t have to be blemish free to be beautiful. And anyone worried about going natural because of their skin, DON'T! OWN IT! It IS pretty and more importantly it’s you! Just because someone says spots look bad doesn't mean they're right!" What she said…
