TV presenter Stacey Solomon has revealed her delight and shock after Michelle Obama shared a message about her on Instagram.

The former US lady posted a collection of messages and pictures from social media that praise healthcare workers in the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

One message, in particular, was from the child of an NHS nurse who told her mother to "get some sleep, relax and let Stacy (sic) Solomon get you giggling".

When Solomon discovered the sweet message was shared by Michelle Obama she told her Instagram followers that she couldn't stop laughing.

The Loose Women panelist said:  "So many of you are tagging me in this.

"Me and Hoe can't stop laughing that I'm on Michelle Obama's grid.

"I'm 100% sure the queen has no idea who I am but it has made my day nonetheless."

Obama had shared the handwritten note to the nurse alongside a message urging people to let healthcare workers know "if you're feeling grateful" for their work.

"From our medical providers and hospital staff to our grocery, transit and delivery workers, so many extraordinary people are putting their lives on the line to get us all through this moment," she said.

"Let's take the opportunity to tell them and their families that we see their sacrifices and we're behind them.

"A handwritten letter, an Instagram post, or a simple 'thank you' text can go a long way in letting someone know just how incredible they are and how much you appreciate what they're doing."
