Former X Factor star and Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon surprised many when she beat the Chaser and won £60,000 on Sunday

Stacey Solomon proved you can’t judge a book by its cover when she crushed her opponent on ITV quiz show The Chase.

The Loose Women star, 27, has often been labelled ditzy and stupid for her TV persona, but even her own fans were left in shock as she flew through a round of quick-fire questions, landing £60,000 for the prize pot on Sunday.

The highlight of the celeb special show was the moment she correctly matched a Blondie lyric to the song The Tide Is High, as she faced former journalist and The Chase pro Anne Hegerty.

Suffice to say, viewers were a bit surprised…

And the Stacey love multiplied by a million…

Even the Chaser herself, Anne Hegarty, was surprised by Stacey’s performance…

 

Totally understandably, the mum-of-two couldn’t help feeling pretty pleased with herself, too…

Of course, there was the traditional touch of trolling, but the former X Factor star has played it super cool.

Especially when it comes to claims that she “pretends” to be stupid…

Stacey and her celebrity team which included Louise Minchin, Keith Allen and Matt Allwright won more than £70,000 for their charities.
