Stacey Solomon is perhaps best known for being a finalist on the UK's X-Factor in 2009, so you're forgiven if you haven't heard of her. But this week she's making headlines stateside, thanks to some cringeworthy copy about her in British paper The Sun, and her swift, Clapback Hall of Fame-worthy response. She shared the paper's mean-spirited spread of her in a bikini on her own Instagram:

I LOVE MY BODY @TheSun My boobs are a result of being pregnant & breast feeding & I love them. I Am just as sexy! 👙

And captioned it:

I LOVE MY BODY @TheSun

My boobs are a result of being pregnant & breast feeding & I love them. I Am just as sexy! 👙

And lest you think "X FACTOR TO SUN FACTOR" or "Top flop" are the most painful parts of The Sun's copywriting, the smaller blurb below the photos is Tabloid at its best/worst.

X FACTOR stars Stacey Solomon and Louisa Johnson show it's a case of sinky pinky and perky with contrasting bikini styles.

Stacey, 26, left, who finished third on the 2009 series of the talent show, seemed to have trouble keeping hers on while on holiday in Ibiza.

Meanwhile, last year's winner, Louisa, 18, showed how it should be done while on a break in LA. Guess that's the difference between lip-synching or swimming...
