Stacey recently revealed her motivation to join the star-studded competition as she admitted the show was an opportunity to get a break from her ‘harrowing job’.

The journalist who is famed for her hard-hitting documentaries, said in a candid interview: ‘One of the reasons I said yes to doing Strictly was because it is so far removed from what I do for a living ordinarily’.

Yet the BBC1 show favourite went on to explain that Strictly in comparison ‘is so celebratory, and so flamboyant, and so camp, and so amazing, but still so classy.’

‘It is the classiest show on telly, I do believe that. The dancers are incredible, the best in the world,’ the presenter insisted.
