Stacey Dooley has split from her boyfriend.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" winner and her partner Sam Tucknott have gone their separate ways after three years together because the 32-year-old documentary maker has been incredibly busy over the last few months and they have struggled to find time for one another.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Stacey confided in her friends that she was struggling to hold down her romance with Sam because her life has been a whirlwind after "Strictly".

"She barely saw him during the month-long tour and has gone straight back into filming documentaries and has been travelling all over the world.

"Their lives have just gone in different directions. They have a close circle of friends who hope things might yet work out but it's not looking likely. It was very emotional and has been tough on them both."

As well as her documentaries and the "Strictly" tour, Stacey has also been busy filming "Glow Up" and recently hit back at criticism over her taking the job as host of the BBC Three make-up competition.

Asked if the jibes shocked her, she said: "Of course not. It's painfully predictable: there are always people who are desperate to put you in your one camp and never let you leave. The idea that you could be interested in the Yazidi community and also in lipstick blows people's minds. It's a really short-sighted Stone Age attitude; it's boring, actually."

And Stacey thinks that make-up should be "celebrated".

She said of the show: "[It is] like "Bake Off"; every week talented, aspiring make-up artists are given new challenges, such as creating prosthetics with someone who's Oscar-nominated.

"We should celebrate make-up. It's a lucrative industry; a massive employer."
