She only gave birth last month but Stacey Solomon was eager to let her hair down last night.

The former X Factor finalist kept things local as she headed out to Funky Mojoe bar in her native Essex and judging by the pictures she had a great time.

Solomon stepped out in a figure hugging beige dress with a black stripe on either side, sporting fake tan and with her blonde hair straightened.

While she may have started off the night looking groomed and elegant, Solomon appeared slightly worse for wear as she exited the club and had to be helped to a waiting minibus by her friends.

Her pretty dress didn’t make it through the night unscathed and judging by the marks on it she had either sat in something or fallen on her backside.

Stacey also looked as if she were concentrating quite hard in order to make it down the steps of the venue in her high heeled sandals.

Luckily she had a couple of pals to help her home and they even provided an umbrella to protect her from the rain.

Stacey, who was once dubbed 'the diva from Dagenham', gave birth to baby son Leighton at the Queen’s Hospital in Romford, Essex on May 5.

The labour was so quick there wasn't time to have any drugs so Stacey had a natural delivery.

She compared the relatively swift two and a half hour labour for Zachary to the excruciating 37-hour labour she had when she gave birth to her eldest son Zachary at the tender age of just 18.

She told The Sun: 'I was back home and in my own bed that evening. It was as if I’d just gone to the shops and come back with a baby.'

Now revelling in her baby bliss, Stacey is optimistic she won't suffer from post-natal depression, as she did first time around with Zachary.

Stacey admitted she struggled after Zachary's birth in 2008. It was a difficult time for the young mum, who had split from Zachary's father Dean Cox when their baby was a few months old.

However, she fortunate enough to meet now-fianc, painter Aaron, on holiday in Greece soon after.

The couple got engaged in New York in December, shortly after Stacey announced her second pregnancy.

She admits she is hoping to see a wedding date for summer 2012 and wants a traditional Jewish wedding under a chuppah.
