Stacey Solomon has hit back at airbrushing in the media with a defiant photoshoot showing the differences between edited photos and her natural body.

Brave Stacey, 28, has proved once again that she's the queen of body confidence after taking part in a photoshoot for magazine Celebrity Secrets.

In the photos, she's wearing a very bright and eye-catching green bikini - but she's asked the mag to publish both the natural photos of her body as it really is, as well as the edited photos.

Yoga time!

They sure know how to have fun. Stacey, Leighton and Zachary enjoyed some relaxing yoga.

In the first pair of photos, Stacey is standing straight on, looking the camera dead in the eye with a sassy and defiant look on her face.

In the second, she's stood with her back to the camera so that readers can see the differences there too.

She also posted the second pair of images on her Instagram page with an inspiring caption.

She wrote: "This is how scary airbrushing can be... just remember when you’re looking at someone’s post or in a mag or poster you might not be looking at real life images!

"I’m so proud of the interview and shoot I did with @celebritysecretsmag highlighting how dangerous this kind of body morphing is and why all bodies should be celebrated no matter what shape or size!"

She added: "I look better UN airbrushed in my opinion and love my natural lumps and bumps!" before ending the post: "Love yourself because you’re perfect."

WATCH: Stacey Solomon reveals she doesn't take her looks seriously at all on Loose Women

This comes after Stacey went viral last summer when she posted a hilarious video of herself in a bikini on holiday celebrating her body.

We spoke to Stacey after that, and she told us about the moment she realised she wanted to become a champion for body positivity.

She said: "I think seeing myself in a national paper being told that I don't look good because my boobs are saggy made me feel really uncomfortable because I like my boobs."

"I don't have a problem with them," she told us, adding: "and I wouldn't want anyone to think that because they've had kids or breastfed – or they've just got saggy boobs – that there's anything wrong with their body.

"And then doing Body Stories with Loose Women made me realise that so many intelligent, powerful, kind-hearted women are body conscious when they've got no reason to be and I think it's because of all the unrealistic, airbrushed images that they see every single day.

"I just thought I don't want to be a part of that cause - I want to fight against it in any way that I can."

Well - you've certainly done it Stace!
