STACEY Solomon begged fans "don’t judge" as she revealed her gross habit in a video on Instagram.
Loose Women star Stacey, 32, was trolled for her morning routine while brushing her teeth.
She was seen with a tooth brush hanging out of her mouth while she said: "I just wanted to come on here while I’m rushing around for this shoots to say sorry about how rubbish I’ve been."
The mum-of-four then took a huge gulp and added: "As soon as this crazy week is out of the way I can do some fun stuff …"
In a second video, Stacey later shared a comment from a fan that said: "Stacey you didn’t just swallow your tooth paste did you?"
"Oh my God, my inbox! don’t judge me…" she replied.

Because although rinsing thoroughly after brushing is common practice, it could actually be reducing the health benefits to your teeth.
This is because toothpaste contains fluoride, an important ingredient that helps make the enamel harder and more resistant to acids that cause cavities.
Holding off on rinsing means you're leaving the fluoride from the toothpaste in your mouth for a longer time.

She said: "Instead of brushing teeth aggressively with a hard grip – which can be a natural response – try to hold your toothbrush at the very end and use a grip as if you’re holding a pen.
"This will reduce pressure to the brush and the teeth, therefore protecting them from damage. All of these things can contribute to whiter teeth!"
