Stacey Dooley Is Making A New Lockdown Documentary And It Looks Seriously Emosh
We've watched her meet lifers in America's radical women's prisons and investigate the dark side of the fashion industry.
Titled Stacey Dooley: Lockdown Heroes, the programme sees Stacey on the trail of the everyday heroes working on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis.
Viewers can catch the show on BBC iPlayer from 6am on Wednesday 6th May.
Using her little black book of contacts and casting out a wide net via social media, Stacey has trawled the country to find the people who are going out of their way to help others.
Take Charlotte, from Wigan, for instance. The teacher-turned-scrub-maker is busy working 14-hour shifts to make vital protective equipment, and has a long list of orders to process.
Managing a team of 70 seamstresses, Charlotte works around the clock to provide frontline services with the equipment they need.
Charlotte, we salute you.

The programme also follows Serena and Richard, who have stepped forward to help strangers suffering with the virus and Zainab, a junior hospital doctor who is helping with the hidden casualties of lockdown.
Then there's mum-to-be Elly, who has been heavily pregnant during lockdown and finds herself giving birth in the midst of a global pandemic.
Elly reveals the challenges she's faced as a new mum, and how she's managing to navigate the strange new world she finds herself in.
Meanwhile, Brit abroad Freya has made the decision to stay with her cat in Athens and continue her work helping refugees, instead returning home like many.
And up in Glasgow, we meet Jonathan, who is doing vital work to support the homeless with food handouts and support systems while the city is in lockdown.
In between these moving and poignant segments, viewers will get a glimpse at Stacey's own lockdown experience, as she documents her time in quarantine with partner, Kevin.
