Stacey Dooley to sign exclusivity contract with BBC of £250,000 per year

Stacey Dooley is reportedly set to sign a £250,000-a-year deal with the BBC.

Stacey, the winner of 2018 Strictly Come Dancing, is on the brink of signing a exclusivity contract with the BBC valued at £250,000 per year, according to a new report.

It will mean that all future appearances after signing for the 32-year-old presenter will be only on BBC.

An insider told The Sun: ‘The execs were absolutely terrified about creating Stacey as their new working-class star on Strictly and then losing her to another broadcaster like ITV or Channel 5.

‘She was happy to stay loyal to the BBC where she has done the vast bulk of her serious work before Strictly so was happy to sign up exclusively.’

Stacey will join Michael McIntyre, Danny Dyer, Nick Knowles and Graham Norton who have all signed exclusivity deals to the BBC.

The documentary presenter earlier this year, discussed Imposter Syndrome, which she experienced at the beginning of her career.

Stacey said: ‘I work in current affairs and I make lots of documentaries often about very highbrow issues I suppose. I left school at 15, no GCSEs, no qualifications.

‘When I started my career, I remember walking into this very foreign, daunting environment and thinking “I don’t sound the same, I don’t look the same, I didn’t study in any of these guys’s places.”‘

Though she added that, ‘you either let that cripple you and there’s that temptation to conform and behave the same, mimic their behaviour, or you think “Actually, I’ve got to really take ownership of it here, work really hard and prove myself.”‘

This follows the news of Stacey’s series Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-up Star being renewed for a second series on BBC Three.

The show seeks to find Britain’s best makeup artist with Ellis Hill winning the first series.

Stacey commented on its renewal saying: ‘We had so much fun filming the last series of Glow Up, so to be back for another with the legends Val and Dominic is a dream come true.’

BBC declined to comment on this story.
