Stacey Solomon has had to reassure her followers that her one year old son is safe after she fed him some unwashed berries from a bush.

The Loose Women star shared an peek inside her evening walk with sister Jemma and her two sons Rex, and Zachary, 12, posting a montage of her picking brambles and handing them to her youngest who eagerly gobbled them up.

But later Stacey was forced to defend her actions after she said she'd received messages worrying about small worms that could live inside the fruit.

The 30 year old documented Rex walking through the field in a brightly coloured romper suit as he happily waved around a stick he'd found along the way.

As the scene flicked to Rex being held by his big brother Zach and eating the berries she had picked, Stacey preempted messages she would get from trolls writing: "Nope Susan, I didn't wash the berries..

"I forgot to bring my sink with us but it stopped him from eating the mud so I went with it."

After a fun evening, Stacey posted a snap of herself with Rex and Zach roasting marshmallows joking that she'd burnt them.

She explained they were waiting for boyfriend Joe Swash, 37, to pick them up on their way home, as Rex dozed on her chest while she laid down outside on the outdoor furniture.

But as predicted she had to address worried messages from her followers.


Taking it all in jest, Stacey just giggled away as she said: "So many of you are saying "aren't there little white worms that can live in blackberries?"

She continued: "I think there are sometimes but my grandma always said it’s just a bit of extra protein. I'm pretty sure it’s safe!"

Stacey also added in the caption: "So many of you messaging asking if I'm worried about bugs that can live in blackberries… I'm not. I'm pretty sure they're safe to eat… Extra protein in my opinion."

But she later revealed she'd checked and everything was all above board, and made a candle holder as a keepsake.
