Interview: Stacey Soloman Reveals New TV Plans

X Factor 2009 finalist Stacey Solomon cheered up the nation when she was in the I’m A Celebrity Jungle and she did more of the same when she opened the glamorous National TV Awards with a hilarious duet with her jungle mate Shaun Ryder.

The pair got everyone’s pulses racing after they’d all soldiered down a very cold and wet red carpet by performing a duet of The Happy Mondays hit Step On.

That’s the song with the bizarre lyric ‘You’re twisting my melon, man’  – which drew giggles around the 20,000 capacity o2 Arena as Stacey attempted to sing that in a provocative way.

But full marks to the queen of the jungle for trying! If anyone could pull it off it would have been her as her plunging diamante maxi dress was so gorgeous it was the first outfit everyone took notice of all night.

Just a few years ago, Stacey worked in a fish and chip shop in Dagenham and now she’s in control of one of the most glamorous nights in the showbiz calendar.

To top off her successful night, I’m a Celebrity won the honour of Most Popular Entertainment Programme so the X factor 2009 finalist returned to the stage later the same night to pick up the prize and give a slightly incomprehensible but very positive sounding acceptance speech.

This is in no way the last we’ve seen of the loveable Essex girl as she exclusively told Very that being at the TV awards has made her think about doing some acting.

Stacey tells us she wants to share the screen with Jude Law, but off-screen she is happily in love with boyfriend of six months Aaron Barnham

She gushed about how ‘lucky’ and ‘overjoyed’ she was to find a male partner so supportive. Bless!

Stacey’s positive attitude is a warming joy during this cold weather but we can all feel a bit better about life if we look gorgeous.
