The series, set to air on Tuesday, will see ten rookie cooks put their skills to the test. 

In a recent press release Stacey said: ‘I really like the premise and the emphasis placed on genuine contributors.

‘They really do have a passion for food and we learn a lot about them and their heritage.

‘It also feels slightly newer than some of the other food shows that are on the scene.’

It comes as Stacey is heading back to the ballroom as she creates a new documentary for BBC.

The TV personality, who is known for creating documentaries, has gone back to the Blackpool ballroom to produce the Ballroom Dance Festival show.

Thousands of dancers from more than 40 countries compete at the Blackpool Dance Festival, the journalist will explore the glitz and glamour world from behind the scenes.

Stacey, who lifted the Glitterball trophy in 2018 on the popular BBC dance competition, said she ‘was hooked’ the minute she got involved with ballroom.

The documentary will give BBC viewers remarkable insight into the real-life tears and triumphs of the hopefuls competing for the British Open Champion title.

Coaches and trainers will reveal all the behind the scenes that the dance has to offer as Stacey’s company Little Dooley will produce the dazzling show.

Stacey said: ‘The minute I was introduced to the extraordinary world of ballroom, and Latin I was hooked! 

‘The culture, the passion, the dedication, the anecdotes, the sequins…! We are hoping to deliver an insightful, thrilling look into an iconic scene that has until now, felt relatively undiscovered. And I really can’t wait!’

Stacey competed with partner Kevin Clifton on the celebrity show and has since been in a whirlwind relationship with him.

Kate Phillips, BBC’s Director of Unscripted, said: ‘I am so excited to bring Blackpool’s Ballroom Battle to BBC audiences. 

‘Little Dooley have done a fantastic job in getting access to the Blackpool Dance Festival which has long been a hidden and mysterious world to those not in the dancing community. 

‘In the programme we will get to witness some absolutely thrilling ballroom dancing, and go behind the scenes to see the stamina, hard work and dedication that it takes in order for these spectacular dancers to get to the top.’

The one-off documentary will waltz its way onto BBC One and BBC iPlayer later in 2022.
