STACEY Solomon had a fun day out in London with her sons and nieces, despite critics saying she’d broken strict Covid rules.
The 31-year-old‘s nieces joined her and her own three children, Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and Rex, one, on a day trip to London.

They walked along the Thames to take in the sight’s including stopping to marvel at the London Eye and drove over the iconic Tower Bridge.
“When we were little, our parents used to take us on a day out to London… it’s about 45 minutes away from where we live but it used to feel like we were going to a whole new world,” Stacey wrote on her Instagram stories.
“So I decided to take the boys and my nieces… We saw the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London.”
The happy family then stopped in at Covent Garden to visit the free Lego exhibition.

“It was so cool, they had massive Lego displays and everything and anyone can go and it’s all centred around #rebuildtheworld,” Stacey wrote.
Rex, her son with Dancing on Ice champ, Joe Swash, was in complete marvel at the big city.
“Rex was just saying W O W to everything. He loved the lights and disco the most,” Stacey revealed.
“Then we watched all of the performers at Covent Garden and Rex was mesmerised by a singer (he had such an amazing voice).”

Stacey sung the praises of the exhibition called A Really Cool World, especially because it was free and required people to reserve their spots to ensure social distancing.
Her day trip comes after the Loose Women presenter came under fire for allegedly breaking coronavirus rules to celebrate Hanukkah with her nieces.
But according to government advice, Stacey has done nothing wrong and is in fact, allowed to form a ‘childcare bubble’ with another family.
The government’s rule reads: “A childcare bubble is where one household links with one other household to provide informal childcare to anyone under 14.
But she recently came under fire after taking care of her nieces at home
“Members of either household can provide childcare in a home or public place. This includes overnight care.”
Stacey needlessly came under fire this week after her niece’s came around to celebrate Hanukkah with her.
The Loose Women panelist celebrates both Christmas and the Jewish Festival of Lights as her mother was raised a Christian but converted to marry Stacey’s Jewish father.
After posting the sweet moment to her Instagram story, The Mirror received complaints that Stacey had broken Covid rules.

While restrictions state that in Tier 2 areas, where Stacey lives, that “households are not allowed to mix indoors in private homes”, exemptions including “childcare” reasons are allowed.
In Stacey’s instance, her nieces were staying with her due to her sister and brother-in-law both working, with nobody else to care for the children.

Stacey didn’t let the trolling dampen the evening, and laughed as they waved to Santa, saying: “Not a traditional Chanukah evening, but the more traditions traditions the merrier I say!”
She explained to her fans: “My nieces are here too because my sister and brother in law are working so it was even more special.”
The evening ended with the family having dinner together, as Stacey shared a sweet video of them sharing traditional chicken soup and playing Jewish games.
