Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over will be back for four new episodes on the W channel.
Stacey Dooley will return to meet more extraordinary families and will lift the lid on a variety of unusual and fascinating lifestyles.
Families inviting Stacey into their homes for the new series include Carla Bellucci who started her career as a glamour model and Page 3 girl and has since established herself as a familiar face in gossip magazines and online.
Next, Stacey will meet Sherry from Swindon – aka the 70-year-old Dominatrix – who has her own take on growing old gracefully.
Whilst her peers were collecting their bus passes and pensions, Sherry was embarking on a new – rather controversial – career path: sadomasochism.
Finally, Stacey meets Jemma who had treatment for ovarian cancer while pregnant with her first child in 2016. After the cancer returned in 2021 after the birth of her third child, Jemma was told it was incurable.
Instead of just accepting her fate, Jemma started to research as much as possible about ovarian cancer. She found a unique clinic in Mexico that could help to extend her life; however, the treatment and trip would cost £90,000.
After sharing her story on Instagram, Jemma started a ‘GoFundMe’ page and within 24 hours she had exceeded her target, with it now standing at over £165,000.
The new series of Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over will air in February on W.
Before then will be a one-off International Women’s Day special episode airing on 8 March. It sees Stacey spend a weekend with Harnaam Kaur, a positive influencer and motivational speaker who is living with and embracing the effect of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) on her appearance.
UKTV’s head of factual and factual entertainment Hilary Rosen said: “We’re delighted to continue our collaboration with Stacey on further episodes of the ‘Sleeps Over’ brand.
“Once again, Firecracker have secured hard-won access to fascinating families across the UK and this series promises to be a powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking watch.”
W channel director Adam Collings added: “Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over is a huge hit with the W audience and a series that offers a real insight into the way that different families live. We can’t wait to see who she visits next and the IWD special is an excellent addition to our celebrations on the channel this year.”
Executive producer Alice Bowden commented: “It’s always a privilege being invited into people’s homes and in this bold new series Stacey spends the weekend with a fascinating array of families who deal with themes and issues that are central to who we are and how we live in the UK today.”
W is available on Sky 109/245, Virgin 124/191, BT 311 & TalkTalk 407 / On demand on Sky and Virgin
