Despite the good news, the signing has meant that the 33-year-old will not be continuing her role on beauty series Glow Up. Taking to Twitter on Tuesday to make the announcement, Stacey wrote: "I should also say that I won't be able to be a part of Glow Up, series 3!

"It was such an utter delight to work with Dom [Skinner] and Val [Garland]. Total stars," she added. "And of course, a real treat to be able to meet the artists, and appreciate their creativity! It's a show very close to my heart and I wish everyone involved in the next gig, all the luck in the world!"
