The outspoken pair were split over the subject, which became a hotly-debated topic on this morning’s panel.
Former X Factor star Stacey, 29, argued that everyone should be encouraged to feel and express self confidence.
However Coleen, 54, disagreed, claiming that people shouldn’t be encouraged to be ‘arrogant’ and that ‘declaring yourself beautiful makes you ugly’
