Stacey Solomon in hysterics as Santa visits her house while they're celebrating Jewish festival Hanukkah

STACEY Solomon was in hysterics this evening when Santa Claus visited her house while they were celebrating Hanukkah.

The 31-year-old star explained earlier in the day that she marks both Christmas and the Jewish festival due to her mum being raised Christian before converting to Judaism to marry Stacey's dad.

Hanukkah begins this evening until next Friday [18 December] night, and the mother-of-three couldn't contain her laughter at Santa's awkward timing when he arrived to visit her children today.

Using the traditional spelling, Stacey wrote: "Look who's popped by for a visit on the first night of Chanukah.

"I'm laughing so much, love you Santa."

In the video, Stacey is laughing as she holds youngest son Rex, with Santa visible in the background as he talked to the family from the front garden.

Leaning into the camera, Santa says: "Happy Hannukah everyone, and a very Merry Christmas!"

Other videos show him happily chatting to Rex, and Stacey's older sons 12-year-old Zachary and eight-year-old Leighton, as well as her nieces who she was looking after while her sister worked.

Zachary could be heard excitedly discussing becoming an elf in the North Pole, with Stacey writing: "Not a traditional Chanukah evening, but the more traditions the merrier I say!"

Santa merrily rang his bell as he walked away, with Stacey gushing to the little ones: "Wow, how cool was that!"

Embracing the hybrid of celebrations, Stacey told her followers: "We weren't expecting that! My nieces are here too because my sister and brother-in-law are working so it was even more special… Now for Chanukah dinner.

"Thank you @SpaceNK Santa for visiting our road… We know you have so many others to see so you didn't have to squeeze us in!"

Earlier in the day, the TV favourite documented her prep for the start of the family's Jewish celebrations, making a Star of David out of cinnamon sticks and fejka plants as well as preparing presents for her children to open later today.

She explained: "We will light a candle every day for eight days and the boys get a small gift on each night.

"I got them something they can sit and make after dinner."

She also tucked into her favourite Jewish crisps and made an afternoon snack of a Menorah made out of blueberries and banana to mark the occasion.
