Award-winning documentary maker Stacey Dooley MBE burst on to TV screens over a decade ago with Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts and has since gone on to be one of the UK's most celebrated journalists, earning an MBE for services to broadcasting.

The series follows Stacey as she spends 72-hours in the company of a wide range of extraordinary characters and families, with the kinds of relationships we've never seen up close before.
