She waltzed her way to a win on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, taking home the glitterball trophy and a boyfriend to boot, in dance partner Kevin Clifton. And now Stacey Dooley has given fans a sneak peek into where she displays her Strictly trophy - taking pride of place in her kitchen.

On Saturday night, the 33-year-old documentary maker showed followers she's still bringing the glamour despite spending time indoors. Posing in a strapless black ball gown in her open-plan living room, she wrote: "Well it is the weekend. Extra X 10,000." Wearing her hair in a loose bun with a scrunchie, Stacey showed off her slim frame in a figure-hugging gown, with the Strictly Glitterball in view on a shelf in the top right corner.

"Here's a little secret… so after the after party, I may have snuck a picture with Stacey's trophy," he told The Telegraph's Talking Strictly podcast. "Then there was a message on the WhatsApp group yesterday saying, 'Has anyone seen my trophy? I left it in the room with all the bags and now I can't find it.'" Luckily enough the trophy was found and returned to its worthy winner, now sitting safely in the star's kitchen.
