Stacey Dooley talks sleeping over and asking the difficult questions

Intrepid and armed with a fearsome work ethic, Stacey Dooley seems to be on a one-woman mission to popularise current affairs for a new generation of young viewers.

Dooley made her TV debut in 2008 as a contributor on BBC Three documentary series Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts, one of six fashion consumers living and working alongside Indian garment workers making cheap clothes for the UK.

The two-part series will follow Dooley as she gains unprecedented access to a specialist police unit in Cheshire and a victim support organisation.

The police unit and organisation are dedicated to preventing stalking from escalating to violence and potentially even murder. 

Dooley spends time with both the victims and perpetrators, discovering the hard truth about what a life consumed by stalking looks like. 

The first episode focuses on the most common type of stalking, ex-partners.

Stacey Dooley to host This is MY House for BBC One

As Diana Ross once said: “It’s my house and I live here”. The six-part series involves an addictive guessing game where four people walk into a house and say, “This is MY house”. However, only one of them is telling the truth.

With three actors stealing the name of the homeowner and claiming they own all their belongings, it’s up to a team of celebrity judges to work out who the imposters are.

Each person has a conflicting story and red herrings are peppered throughout the house, so viewers at home can join in with the sleuthing.

“I’m delighted to be involved with Glow Up,” said Dooley. “The make-up artists are so impressive and talented... and Val and Dominic were a scream to work with. Can’t wait to show you all it!”

Spending time with families of all shapes and sizes, from the unconventional to the morally ambiguous, Dooley hopes to present a cross section of modern society in Britain. The series will delve beneath the preconceived notions of families and relationships to show what life in modern Britain is actually like, from the point of view of little discussed family set-ups.
