The star, 29, who appeared alongside her fellow Loose Ladies on webcam at their homes, said she had been feeling the pressure dealing with the volume of work her 12-year-old son Zachary has been set.
She said: ‘Leighton (her middle son aged seven) goes online, signs on, ticks his thing, signs his thing and submits it.
‘Zach’s is so hard. He’s only year seven and I thought I would know how to help him. He asks me questions and I’m like ”Zach I honestly don’t know. You’re gonna have to google it”.
‘He is getting his full timetable every single day, he is getting Geography, Maths, English, PE every day and it’s overwhelming me, I don’t even know how to…’ Stacey added before shaking her head in horror.

Fellow Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha had some words of encouragement for Stacey and any other parents tasked with homeschooling their children.
She said: ‘Just take your foot off the gas, they’ll catch up, it’s Easter holidays on Friday.
‘With homeschooling, it’s hard to get out of that mindset. It doesn’t have to happen at that time in the day. You can’t become a teacher overnight. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself.’
