Stacey Solomon has been left devastated after finding her garden had been "robbed". The TV personality shared a new update with fans on Instagram about her family home, Pickle Cottage, revealing her vegetable patch had been targeted.

The 34 year old, who resides with her husband Joe Swash, 42, and their children in Essex, posted a video of herself walking around her sprawling garden as she explained what had happened. Dressed in a bright pink hoodie with her hair in a ponytail, Stacey put her hand to her head as she admitted she was "absolutely devastated" by the incident outside.

She found her vegetable patch had been "robbed" and her broccoli was nowhere to be seen, with just stalks left behind. Stacey worried about what to tell her son Rex, four, as she told the camera: "Devastated, send help. What do I tell Rex?"

She continued: "Oh my gosh. I've just come out to water the plants because the sun's gone behind the other side of the house and it's like great watering time for me. I'm looking at the patch and I'm like what's different? It looks different today. What's happened here?

"I've walked closer and I'll tell you what's different. I've been robbed, I've been robbed. Oh my god, it's so bad. I don't even want to look at it. I'm absolutely devastated. The deer, and it must be deer because I don't know anything that could do what they've done to my veg. The deer have come in the night and literally robbed me dry of my broccoli. All of it. I've just got stems left."

She then showed fans the vegetable patch and the remains of her broccoli. The mum-of-five said: "Look I'll show you. I'm actually so sad. I'm actually so devastated. Do I have to just rip them out? Am I too late to start again with these? Send help please."

Her loyal five million followers flocked to help her and she was inundated with help and advice about the vegetable patch. Stacey shared a follow-up post, saying she "broccoli rescue mission" had now commenced.

"Broccoli rescue mission. Okay so loads of you saying it looks like rabbits," Stacey penned. "Also lots of you saying they might be okay so keep going. But I'm also going to plant new plys and I'm off to the garden centre to get some netting. Hoping that helps. Thank you."
