Before announcing her pregnancy, Stacey said she had gone through a crisis about being childless at 35 after filming for a documentary.

She was forced to dig deep during her 10-day stay with the Sisters of St Hilda’s Priory Order of the Holy Paraclete in Whitby, North Yorkshire for her new show. 

She told The Sun how the experience – which saw her living alongside the nuns – made her prioritise her life at home with Kevin. 

In a scene from the show, Stacey said: "For the last 15 years it's been work, work, career, work, work and then your private life is on the back burner. I'm 35 so…”

When a nun asked her if she "wanted a family", she concluded: "I know. I need to start thinking about it, don’t I?”

Stacey, from Luton, is best known for her TV roles, and her first-ever telly job was on Blood, Sweat And T-shirts.

She left school at 15 and says she fell into her broadcast journalism career. 

After appearing on Newsnight – while she was still working at Luton airport – she was offered her first TV series.

She actually admitted to BBC Radio 4 that she "wasn’t great at the start" and hates looking back at old footage of herself.

In 2018, she was awarded an MBE for her work.

Stacey won Strictly Come Dancing, which raised her profile in the TV industry, with Kevin in 2018.
