The Foxy Mum campaign has had a bit of a media shakeup.

Foxy Bingo has stripped Stacey Solomon of her title as Celebrity Mum of the Year following her admission that she still smokes even though she is seven months pregnant.

The 22-year-old X Factor finalist and I’m a Celebrity winner was awarded the accolade last year and was in the running to win again this year when stories of her smoking habit began circulating. After a photo of her smoking a cigarette was published, she said she felt ‘embarrassed’ and ‘ashamed’, speaking of her struggle to quit the habit during her pregnancy. Solomon admitted to smoking two or three cigarettes per day and says she is now seeking help.

Foxy Bingo released a statement in which they explained their decision, saying ‘Following stories in the newspapers in recent days, Foxy Bingo has taken the decision to stand Stacey down from her position as judge on Foxy Mum and from the voting shortlist for Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year 2012.’ Solomon apologised to Foxy for her actions, but said that she respects their decision.

With Solomon out of the competition, there are still seventeen celebrities on the shortlist, including singer Charlotte Church, Amanda Holden and Peaches Geldof. The winner will be announced on Mother’s Day – 18th March, 2012.
