  • 'Very honest and very open. Lots of young girls will read this and identify with it. Brilliant. I advise anyone to go and read it' Louise Redknapp, on Something for the Weekend

    X Factor star, Queen of the Jungle, and Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon shares her story so far . . .

    As a kid, Stacey always dreamed of becoming a star. But at 17, it looked like her dream was shattered when she unexpectedly became pregnant.

    Always the fighter, new single mum Stacey rallied, found a college with a crèche for her son Zachery and waitressed at night, determined that he should have the opportunities she didn't.

    And then the X Factor came along, where she stunned Britain with her astonishing voice. She went from hard-up single mum to X Factor favourite, Queen of the Jungle and much-loved TV presenter in just two years.

    Stacey Solomon's My Story So Far is a fantastic and inspirational read by a modern-day heroine who has remained true to her working-class roots and who has always looked on the bright side of life.
