Speaking to You magazine, the 34 year old explained: "I feel so much better for it.

"And then when I went to bed, the last thing I'd do is look at my phone and read another negative comment."
The television personality went on to explain that if these comments were made to her face in real life, she would not take it lying down.
"So I'd be starting and finishing the day reading unkind things about myself," Stacey continued.
"And I think, if I was a person saying it in my bed, I'd be in an abusive relationship and I wouldn't put up with it."

The Strictly Come Dancing star has been on television since she was 20 and is now less bothered about what people think of her than she was at the beginning of her career.
"Certainly, over the past couple of years, my life has changed in quite a significant way. I'd just turned 20 when I did my first TV gig," she divulged.
"I'm 34 now. The last three or four years, I've sort of found my flow and I feel less a***d about what people think of me."
Stacey has been in a relationship with dancer Kevin for the last two years after they were paired together on Strictly Come Dancing and went on to win the show.

The couple decided to move in together, with Kevin, 38, moving into Stacey's flat before the pair purchased their very own West London house together.
