Stacey Dooley hid her pregnancy using clever Instagram tricks and baggy tops

TV presenter Stacey Dooley managed to keep her pregnancy under wraps from fans using clever Instagram tricks and by wearing a lot of baggy tops.

Stacey announced her pregnancy on Instagram with a snap of her growing bump earlier this week, after hiding it for many weeks.

The 35 year old is expecting her first baby with professional dancerKevin Cliftonafter the pair met on BBC hit showStrictly Come Dancing.

The lovely news came as a surprise to fans who did not pick up on the news despite the presenter being active on social media in the last few months.

Stacey posted regularly to her 1 million followers in recent months but gave no hints of her pregnancy.

The star was clever to share several snaps that she didn’t herself feature in and any pictures she was in she covered her growing bump with baggy outfits and was never pictured from the side that could have thrown light on her exciting news.

In a recent video with comedy legend Ricky Tomlinson, Stacey was seen dancing with him but managed to avoid any attention by wearing a black loose-fitting dress and a yellow bag across her front, detracting from attention to her middle.

In other recent snaps Stacey could be seen in a full-length shot wearing a beige loose-fitting trouser suit with long jacket that gave nothing away about her news. The suit was matched with an orange top underneath and pointy orange shoes.

The yellow bag trick was also featured in a snap from several weeks ago where Stacey wore a denim jacket and the small bag crossed around her front.

She embraced the baggy look in a further snap where she wore a white dress that flowed loosely around her middle as she was photographed walking down a flight of stairs.

The former Strictly star is in a relationship with Strictly star Kevin Clifton, and the pair are due to welcome their first child later this year,.

Together, Stacey and Kevin, 39, won Strictly Come Dancing. It was the first time Kevin had won the show in the four years of performing. The dancing duo further bonded on a nationwide tour.

Months after the show had finished, Stacey confirmed the couple's romance.

Stacey and Kevin have always been very private when it comes to their life together.

In 2019, Stacey told the Guardian: "Kev and I have agreed not to go into too much detail about our private lives because you can't really indulge that and then ask for privacy."
