Meanwhile, the first series of Glow Up aired earlier this year. Host Stacey was forced to respond to criticism that this presenting gig was "trivial" compared to her investigative reporting in places like Iraq. "It's painfully predictable. There are always people who are desperate to put you in your one camp and never let you leave," she told the Mail on Sunday's YOU magazine. "The idea that you could be interested in the Yazidi community and also in lipstick blows people's minds. It's a really short-sighted, Stone Age attitude – it's boring, actually."
