Stacey Dooley hit back at trolls who flooded her with ‘cruel comments’ after BBC announced she was the face of a new entertainment show
Stacey wrote, “Read some of the needlessly cruel comments on my new gig. I had the same review doing Strictly and Glow up.
“I did strictly right and Glow up became a world series, which was brought back into service and Netflix took over. I don’t know why this platform is so mean …
Some of the nasty comments included, “And we pay a license fee for this?” and “What bothers me about that, coming closer to my theme, is that the BBC is ‘creating’ a celebrity with Stacey Dooley, who now has lucrative advertising deals, and very soon she will be charging us over $ 1million. of pounds sterling via the license fee for the “pleasure” of watching it.

Stacey previously retweeted a BBC message that read: “@StaceyDooley is back with a new entertainment show for @BBCOne. #ThisIsMYHouse sees four people walk into a house and say, “This is MY house”, but the problem is, one of them is telling the truth… “.
A host of famous friends of the Strictly winner flocked to the comments section to show their support.
Dan Walker of BBC Breakfast said: “This is why I think Twitter – despite all the positives – will die eventually. What are the benefits of allowing people to come into your life to yell at you and tell you that you are garbage? You are not Stace… you are awesome and the overwhelming majority of non-pubic people will wish you the best ”.

Stacey will host the show, which will see a team of famous judges work together to determine who the honest owner is and who the impostors are.
It comes after Stacey has reportedly been in the running to host a new morning show on the BBC that will be similar to The One Show, with Rylan Clark-Neal also declared to be a candidate, according to The Mail On Sunday.
Candidates: Stacey is said to be in the running to host a new morning show on the BBC that will be similar to The One Show, with Rylan Clark-Neal also declared to be a candidate.
Starting at 9:15 a.m., the new show is expected to challenge ITV mid-morning stars Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, while seeking to draw viewers to Lorraine Kelly’s hour-long show which takes place in from 9 a.m.
BBC executives hope the program will also engage viewers of Breakfast, which attracts around nine million people each week.
A source close to the project said: “BBC Breakfast beats Good Morning Britain every day and The One Show is one of the channel’s best-loved and popular shows, so the concept is based on that.
“The idea is that if they can put a daytime version of the show right after BBC Breakfast, they’ll keep some of those viewers and follow the same format as The One Show, but with segments tailored to a new audience of day.
“Everyone at the BBC is very enthusiastic about this. They know it could be quite This Morning’s rival, for the very first time.
