Shortly after the big reveal, Strictly Come Dancing winner Stacey, 35, took to her Instagram to talk about her pregnancy during her time on the show.

She told her 1 million followers: “A dancing, preggo prawn. You're WELCOME.

“The choreographers were such sweethearts, and the entire crew BTS.

“Ta so much.”

She also shared an apology to her runner on the show as her then secret pregnancy saw her suffering with morning sickness during the recording.

She wrote: “So fun! (Also, so sorry to my gorgeous runner, I just know my dressing room must've stunk of 1st trimester sickness).”
