Stacey Solomon returned to the ITV Loose Women panel on Monday and clashed with Denise Welch over a number of topics

Stacey Solomon made a triumphant return to the Loose Women panel on Monday after enjoying some time with her family.

And the doting mum, 34, didn’t hold back when it came to her opinions on the day’s topics. Stacey clashed with fellow panellist Denise Welch on two occasions and one fan said the former “wiped the floor” with the latter.

First, Stacey and Denise disagreed over Melania Trump’s decision to stay with Donald Trump after his guilty verdict for falsifying records, and then over the concept of working from home.

The debate began with a chat about Sydnie Christmas’ victory on Britain’s Got Talent and whether personality is as important as talent in such competitions. Then, when the conversation shifted to former model Melania’s loyalty to her husband post-verdict, Stacey won the audience over with her passionate outburst.

“Why is the focus on his wife?” she said. “It should be about him and his disgraceful acts.” Later, the topic turned to stay-at-home husbands and remote working. Mum-of five-Stacey argued that flexible working arrangements have been a godsend for many families, especially those with children, according to OK!.

Denise, however, lamented the lack of available staff in businesses, suggesting “the country is collapsing” because everyone is working from home.

In response, Stacey asked her fellow panellist if they genuinely thought that telecommuting was to blame for the staffing issues as opposed to challenges faced by employees on zero-hour contracts, particularly nurses. “So it has nothing to do with the fact that a nurse is grafting hard on a zero hours contract, struggling to pay childcare? No wonder people aren’t signing up to do these jobs, they just aren’t paid enough to do them.”

As the debate intensified, viewers flocked to social media platforms to applaud the returning star’s viewpoints. One viewer posted on X (formerly known as Twitter ): “I don’t usually watch #loosewomen but today I am, I totally agree with Stacey Solomon.” Another supporter echoed the sentiments: “@StaceySolomon talking sense on #LooseWomen #workingfromhome.”

Another fan expressed their support: “Stacey absolutely wiping the floor with Densy [clapping hand emojis] #LooseWomen.” A fourth fan said: “What a shame Stacey is stepping back from TV, she’s the only redeeming feature of #LooseWomen.”

Stacey recently disclosed that her ambition is to become a full-time mother, managing her household with five children in tow, including three she shares with partner Joe Swash. Speaking to beauty entrepreneur Caroline Hirons on her Glad We Had This Chat podcast, Stacey shared: “Every year I have a team meeting with my agent and everyone on the team to say, ‘What’s your plan? What’s your goal? ‘ And this year when they asked me my five-year goal, I was like, I want to be a stay-at-home mum. That is my dream, it’s my ultimate dream. I just want to be with my kids.”
