The documentary filmmaker has previously spoken to The Guardian about how she felt not universally liked by colleagues.

Stacey told the paper that some do not “understand” how she is working in journalism, owing to her proudly “working class” background.

She recalled insults given to her while working “‘Ooh, you’ve got holes in your jeans,’ or [they] mimic my accent.”

However, the esteemed broadcaster has said she works “really hard” to be in the industry and can relate with topics on a personal level that some “middle class-journalists might not”.
