Stacey Solomon thought her ''life was over'' when she fell pregnant with her son Zach at the age of 17

Stacey Solomon thought her "life was over" when she had her son.

The 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' winner - who discovered she was pregnant with baby Zach when she was just 17 - admitted while she didn't resent her child, she felt "hopeless" as soon as she became a mum.

She said: "I looked at Zach - I suppose that I must have had some love for him as I had given him a name - and thought, "What am I going to do?

"I didn't really want to hold him. I didn't resent him, I resented myself and all I could think was that this was it, my life was over. I felt so hopeless. I didn't want a baby."

After being told she would have to leave her performing arts course at college, Stacey - who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2009 - explained she "spent days sitting in a fog of blackness" when she thought her dreams of becoming a star were over.

In extracts from her book 'Stacey: My Story So Far' published on MailOnline, Stacey, now 21, added: "I was told I would have to leave college - which I loved -as much of the course involved dancing which, with a pregnant woman involved, health and safety did not allow.

"I spent days sitting in a fog of blankness. I cut myself off from people. I didn't want to speak to anyone and I definitely didn't want to tell people I was having a baby."
