STACEY Solomon has been accused of breaking Covid rules despite doing nothing wrong, as her sister's children visited her for Hanukkah.
The 31-year-old's nieces joined in as her own three children, Zachary, 12, Leighton, 8, and Rex, 1, spent the evening celebrating their Jewish heritage.
The Loose Women panelist celebrates both Christmas and the Jewish Festival of Lights as her mother was raised a Christian but converted to marry Stacey's Jewish father.
She explained on her Instagram story: "My mums family are Christian (my grandad was a vicar) and my dads family are Jewish, so we were raised learning about both."
While celebrating the traditional Jewish festival, Santa Claus also turned up to the house so the children could wave to him from inside.
After posting the sweet moment to her Instagram story, The Mirror received complaints that Stacey had broken Covid rules.
While restrictions state that in Tier 2 areas, where Stacey lives, that "households are not allowed to mix indoors in private homes", exemptions including "childcare" reasons are allowed.
In Stacey's instance, her nieces were staying with her due to her sister and brother-in-law both working, with nobody else to care for the children.
Stacey didn't let the trolling dampen the evening, and laughed as they waved to Santa, saying: "Not a traditional Chanukah evening, but the more traditions traditions the merrier I say!"
She explained to her fans: "My nieces are here too because my sister and brother in law are working so it was even more special."
She went on to tell her confused followers that "Santa is not a part of Hanukkah" and filmed herself laughing about the religious mashup.
"You lot must be thinking, what the hell is this Hanukkah?" she joked. "I can confirm, Santa is not a part of Hanukkah, he just happened to be coming past our door."
The evening ended with the family having dinner together, as Stacey shared a sweet video of them sharing traditional chicken soup and playing Jewish games.
