Stacey Dooley has travelled the world and visited the most unusual places for her BBC Three documentaries, but nothing is more surprising than where she found out she was pregnant.

The 35-year-old TV presenter is expecting her first child with boyfriend and former Strictly Come Dancing pro Kevin Clifton, 40, and she discovered the amazing news in the most unlikely place - the high-end department store Selfridges.

She's so real for this!

Sharing a delightful New Year's message on Instagram Stories, Stacey welcomed the new year with her adorable pregnancy anecdote.

“Happppppy new year kidssssss!”, she wrote on Sunday (1 January). “Wishing you all only great moments ahead.”

She added: “2022, the year I found out we were havin [sic] a baby. I did a pregnancy test in Selfridges toilet and FaceTimed Kev in the back of a black cab."

The 2018 Strictly Come Dancing champion included a screenshot of the FaceTime call in which she told Kevin their good news.

"He was filming for a gig and had a radio mic on so it was all very chaotic," she added.

Stacey announced she's expecting her first child in a sweet Instagram post in August 2022. The parents-to-be met back in 2018, when they were partnered together for Strictly Come Dancing and went on to win the entire season.

The TV personality wrote: "Gaaaaaaang..... We are having a baby! So bloody delighted."

Shouting out her partner Kevin, she added: "Kev, you're magic, I love you."

She went on to joke: "Was becoming impossible to hide and if one more person asks me if I've had my t*ts done in LA I'm gonna scream."

In an interview three days after her announcement, Stacey said she feels 'lucky' to be pregnant at her age.

Speaking to host Ronan Keating after he congratulated her on her baby news, Stacey said: "I can't quite believe it actually, I'm delighted. I feel really lucky because I'm 35 so you never take it for granted," she said.

She went on to add that she 'can't quite believe I'm going to be in charge of a little human being'.
