'I really can't wait': Stacey Dooley to live in a convent with nuns and experience life in the religious order for new film project
She's an experienced presenter and documentary maker with a plethora of TV credits under her belt.
And Stacey Dooley looks set to take on one of her most eye-opening jobs to date as she's set to move into a convent full of nuns for a brand new film project.
The broadcaster, 34, who is dating former Strictly dancer Kevin Clifton, 38, will swap the comforts of the modern world for a life of obedience and simplicity and she lifts the veil on life in a convent.
Her experience is inspired by the Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over programmes on channel W, which sees the star travel around Britain meeting a variety of extraordinary folks and staying in their homes for 72 hours to experience their way of life.
Speaking to The Mirror during a virtual BAFTA Q&A, Stacey said: 'Alice [Bowden, executive producer] and I are reunited and we're doing a film in a convent. So this was borne out of [Stacey Dooley] Sleeps Over actually because I really wanted to go and live with some nuns.
'But we're thinking, 'Well, is that a family dynamic or is that a different idea?'
'So, yeah, different idea and I really can't wait.'
It comes after Stacey admitted she won't tie the knot to thrice-married Kevin as she joked 'he'd divorce me in a heartbeat'.
The presenter, who has been in a relationship with the former Strictly star for over two years, insisted she's more interested in starting a family than walking down the aisle during a new episode of her W show, Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over.
'I don't want to find myself totally reliant on a man', the broadcaster said as she spoke to members of a community called Tradwives - women who ditch their careers in a bid to become traditional housewives.
The media personality - who was joined by Felipe and his spouse Lillian as they marked 10 years of marriage - detailed her stance on marriage, sharing: 'Kev and I have been together for two years. I don't think I want to get married.
'I think I'd be more interested in starting a family than getting married. I can't think of anything worse than being a Tradwife.
'I would be useless, completely and utterly useless. He'd divorce me in a heartbeat.'
According to The Sun, the host went on to highlight the differences between a Tradwife and a career-driven woman like herself.
The journalist added: 'Of course, I'm not going to become a Tradwife, I can't think of anything I would least rather do than obeying a man.
'It makes you more vulnerable. I don't want to find myself totally reliant on a man because that means if I'm not happy and I don't feel fulfilled and complete, I might have to stick around.
'Whereas the life I've chosen, I can do as I please. I appreciate that probably sounds very selfish.'
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Stacey for further comment.
The couple went public with their romance in early 2019, just weeks after her split from her boyfriend of three years, Sam Tucknott.
