Stacey Solomon has revealed none of her teeth are real after pregnancy left her with ‘black and yellow’ gnashers.
During Wednesday’s Loose Women, the panellist, 30, recalled having a ‘painful’ plate fitted into her mouth after suffering problems with her natural set as she carried her second son Leighton, now eight, in 2012.
The host declared she ‘finally feels a bit normal’ after transforming her smile with veneers years later.

Discussing the topic of DIY dentistry, musician Stacey explained: ‘It’s my biggest fear, my teeth falling out, because it may come as a shock to you, but these are not real!
‘When I was pregnant with Leighton, the front ones went black and yellowy and I lost a lot of the black ones, so I got plates put over them. They were awful!’
The media personality – who has Leighton and Zachary, 13, from past relationships, and shares 19-month-old Rex with partner Joe Swash – went on to explain how a temporary plate left her with breathing issues.

Mother-of-three Stacey elaborated: ‘Then they felt really bulbous-y and I was so sensitive to the point where I couldn’t even breathe in without thinking, ”Ugh! It really hurts!”
‘So then I got them done again after that because they made me so unhappy and I finally feel a bit normal with them now, even though they’re obviously not normal now because they’re not real.’
On the importance of teeth, the mummy blogger added: ‘But I think teeth is such a personal thing and any time that someone talks about their teeth or hurting their teeth or pulling one out it honestly makes my whole mouth shudder!
Are bleeding gums in pregnancy a cause for concern?
Some women get swollen and sore gums, which may bleed, during pregnancy. Bleeding gums are caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can make your gums more vulnerable to plaque, leading to inflammation and bleeding. This is also called pregnancy gingivitis or gum disease.
It’s very important to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy while you’re pregnant.
The best way to prevent or deal with gum problems is to practice good oral hygiene.
Go to the dentist so they can give your teeth a thorough clean and show you how to keep your teeth clean at home.
‘I love natural teeth, I think there’s nothing that gives so much character to someone’s face.’
A host of former I’m A Celebrity success stories including the actor, 38, Joey Essex, 30, and Vicky Pattison, 33, were rumoured to be joining this year’s show set in Wales, but X Factor star Stacey has quashed the speculation.
The media personality said: ‘Not that I know unless he’s hiding something, he’s not isolating, he’s been with me so I hope not!
Back again? Elsewhere in the show, the TV star shut down claims about her I’m A Celebrity winner boyfriend Joe Swash returning to the series this year (pictured in 2008)
‘Honestly if he has pulled off going on I’m A Celeb without telling me it’ll be the best thing he’s ever done. I said “are you going back into the jungle?” and he said “no, what?”.’
Before joining the 2008 edition of the hit jungle reality show, soap star Joe was best known for his role as Mickey Miller in BBC soap EastEnders.
Since winning the programme, the TV star has gone on to find success as a presenter as well as taking home the crown on last year’s edition of skating celebrity competition Dancing On Ice.
