STACEY Dooley’s earnings have reportedly been boosted by £125k following her success on Strictly Come Dancing.
The TV presenter – who was crowned champion in 2018 – saw her earnings rise to £350,000, according to accounts for Stacey Dooley Productions Ltd.
According to accounts obtained by The Sunday Mirror, Stacey’s income has significantly increased as she continues to present various documentaries and other shows including EastEnders: Secrets From The Square.
The star, 33, also fronts BBC Three series Glow Up: Britain’s Next Big Makeup star and has regularly guest hosted The One Show.
Stacey – who recently moved into her new pad with former professional dance partner and boyfriend Kevin Clifton – also filmed a BBC special, Lockdown Babies, in early June.
The show saw Stacey meet pregnant women and new mums inside Bradford Royal Infirmary.
But the broadcaster came under fire after she was allowed to attend an antenatal scan.
While she was allowed to witness an ultrasound scan, dads-to-be up and down the country could not, which left viewers angry.
One took to Twitter to write: “How infuriating for any pregnant women or any women who’ve gave birth during this pandemic who’ve suffered huge consequences to our maternity care have to sit and watch Stacey Dooley and a bbc camera crew have free roam and attend antenatal apps when your partner can’t #Panorama.”
Another questioned: “Why is Stacey Dooley allowed in the midwife appointment with a stranger, but not the woman’s partner? Entertainment purposes okay, but moral support is not? #bbcone#Panorama.”
Others reflected on their own pregnancy experiences during lockdown and how the disease meant they had to go through key moments, including the birth, alone.
A viewer explained: “I like Stacey Dooley, but I’m not impressed that she and her camera crew were given full access to the hospital, while I had to go to scans alone, emergency appts alone and even had to give birth alone because of COVID…#Panorama #coronavirusuk #lockdownbabies.”
