Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over returns to W for a brand-new series and follows the award-winning documentary maker as she spends a long weekend (72-hours) as a house guest, exploring more unseen areas of modern relationships and extraordinary family life in the UK. The three families involved in this series have strong women at their centre and include former glamour model Carla Bellucci, 70-year-old Dominatrix Sherry and Jemma McGowan who is a young mum fighting an incurable cancer.
From sharing family meals to attending important life-changing events, Stacey gets involved in all aspects of the families’ lives to intimately explore their attitudes to love, relationships, parenting and money. Honest and insightful, the series reveals the things that make us different but also the things that we all have in common.
