Stacey spoke to Fleur East and her co-star James Barr as he revealed he was recently single and was looking for cleaning advice.
At first, Stacey said: “Once a week, I’d say.”
However, she soon changed her tune when James acted surprised saying it seemed too often.
Stacey then changed her answer to once a month, adding: “Do you know what? While you are single and enjoying that life, wallow in your own filth for a little while.
“You’ve got no one to impress. You know when you’re single and you don’t have to shave your legs? So you just go full Gruffalo. I feel it’s the same.”
Now, Martin Seeley, the CEO and sleep expert at MattressNextDay has sided with Stacey.
He said: “Despite her answer shocking radio listeners, Stacey Solomon is right. Every night, the average person sweats at least 200ml of liquid, which naturally seeps through to your duvet.
“Further studies show that the average bedding harbors around 20,000 dust mites which can be triggering for those that suffer from allergies, therefore, causing a runny nose, congestion and more. Given that 80 per cent of dust mites are made up of your dead skin , which you naturally produce more of overnight, you should be washing your bedding at least once a week.
“However, if you tend to get night sweats or get hot flushes, you should wash your bed sheets even more often. If your bedding feels damp or ‘clammy’ in the morning, you should strip them and wash them straight away. In addition, some medical conditions require that your bed is as clean as it can be with no bacteria or dust to trigger allergies.
“Suppose you suffer from a skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, or a respiratory condition like asthma. In that case, it may be aggravated by dust mites or bacteria built up in a dirty bed. Therefore, you should wash your sheets as often as possible.”
The advice comes after Stacey recently revealed she is expecting her fifth child. The star shared the happy news on Instagram and revealed that she is due in the next few weeks. Alongside the photo – shared on her Instagram Story – she wrote to her followers: “Happy New Year’s Eve everyone. I feel like we have so much to catch up on in 2023.”
