Stacey Dooley is one busy lady right now. Fresh from winning the covetable glitter ball on Strictly Come Dancing, the 31-year-old is returning to our TV screens for a very exciting reason. Staying with the BBC, Stacey will be the host on Glow Up-Britain’s Next Make Up Star - a show aimed at finding the next big name in makeup artistry. The judges on the show will be two very established makeup artists, Dominic Skinner, who is Global Senior Artist for MAC Cosmetics, and Val Garland, L’Oreal Paris’s Global Makeup Director, the duo (as well as different celebrity guest judges) will be responsible for finding the next face painter to the stars.

It might seem like an odd choice for Stacey - she’s known for her gritty documentaries but since appearing on Strictly she must have found a new love for the glam life. Rocking plenty of showstopper looks on the dancing show, she often shared photos from the makeup chair with her Strictly glam squad, including Lisa Armstrong.

With different creative briefs each week, they will need to their passion, originality and skill to impress Stacey, Val, and Dominic (as well as different celebrity guest judges).

This show seems to be very similar to one Kim Kardashian-West produces in the US - Glam Masters. Hosted by Orange Is the New Black actress, Laverne Cox, the show features Kardashian West's own makeup artist and longtime collaborator, Mario Dedivanovic, among its celebrity judges. Has the BBC been looking to Kim for TV show ideas?

Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make Up Star will air in 2019 on BBC Three.
