Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over Returns for Special


The UKTV original Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over is set to return for a special three-part series airing later this year on W.

Dooley will meet more unique U.K. families to learn about their unusual and fascinating lifestyles. An International Women’s Day special has also been commissioned, in which Stacey spends a weekend with a motivational speaker living with and embracing the effects of polycystic ovary syndrome on her appearance.

Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over is produced by Firecracker Films and distributed by Passion Distribution.

Hilary Rosen, head of factual and factual entertainment at UKTV, said: “We’re delighted to continue our collaboration with Stacey on further episodes of the Sleeps Over brand. Once again, Firecracker have secured hard-won access to fascinating families across the U.K., and this series promises to be a powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking watch.”

Adam Collings, channel director for W, added: “Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over is a huge hit with the W audience and a series that offers a real insight into the way that different families live. We can’t wait to see who she visits next and the IWD special is an excellent addition to our celebrations on the channel this year.”

Alice Bowden, executive producer, said: “​It’s always a privilege being invited into people’s homes, and in this bold new series Stacey spends the weekend with a fascinating array of families who deal with themes and issues that are central to who we are and how we live in the U.K. today.”
