Loose Women fans baffled as Stacey Solomon takes over show amid maternity leave

Pregnant Stacey Solomon left ITV viewers scratching their heads on Wednesday when she returned to the Loose Women panel – despite saying she was on maternity leave.

The 31-year-old mum, who is set to welcome her baby girl with fiancé Joe Swash, came back to the all-female chat show on Wednesday as the main anchor of the show.

It comes not long after the former X Factor star had previously announced she was going on maternity leave – and even suggested she wouldn't be returning to the show until after Christmas.

Back in August, Stacey's co-stars threw a sweet baby shower for panelist, with the star saying: "I'll probably come back after Christmas".

However, Stacey was back in the ITV studio this week and even opened the show as the lead anchor, causing confusion for a lot of viewers at home.

One puzzled fan on Twitter wrote: "I thought Stacey was on maternity leave."

A second penned: "Confused regardless of pre-recorded. Thought Stacey said goodbye last week as going on maternity leave and seen her twice already this week.
