Loose Women viewers were left confused on Tuesday afternoon as Stacey Solomon was featured on the show's panel just days after going on maternity leave.

The 31 year old was close to tears less than two weeks ago as her fellow panellists threw her a baby shower as she headed off screens for the remainder of the year.

Stacey even took to Instagram on Tuesday morning to say she was heading off to work, but didn't say she was going to Loose Women.

She wrote to her 4.6million followers: "Time to sort my actual life out I've got an hour before I have to leave for work, so I'm going to get us dressed sort the house out and drop pickle at auntie Jem Jem's."

Fans of the hit ITV show took to Twitter to share their confusion on Tuesday as they tuned in to find the former X Factor star sat alongside Kaye Adams, Janet Street Porter and Jane Moore.

One took to Twitter to say: "I thought Stacey was on maternity leave? Yet here she is on LW and her Instagram post from today also said she is off to LW… What is going on???"

A second added: "Thought they packed Stacey off on maternity leave."

While a third commented: "Why is Stacey there? Thought she had f**ked off on maternity leave?"

A fourth penned: "I thought Stacey was on maternity leave. Confused."

With a final viewer writing: "Huh? I thought Stacey was in maternity leave?"

One fan seemed to clear up the confusion, claiming: "Right. THE SHOW IS PRE RECORDED, ONLY LIVE ON MONDAYS & WEDNESDAYS. Stacey is indeed off on maternity leave."

OK! online has contacted a representative for Loose Women for comment on this story.

Stacey wrote to her Instagram followers on 6 August: "It's my last day of Loose Women today before I stop for maternity…

"I decided to stop earlier this time than with Rex because the last time I had my last show I gave birth the next day. And I must say I wasn't ready at all.

"How are you this morning? I hope whatever you're doing you have a lovely day. Happy Friday."

Stacey looked glamorous for her final show appearance, wearing a floral dress with her hair in a side braid.

She smiled as she donned a tiara and a sash reading: "Baby on Board", while her co-stars gave her presents, including a babygro with 'Little Loose Women' written on it.
