The 2018 Strictly Come Dancing champion heads back on the road to celebrate the publication of her, yet to be released, new book, ‘Are You Really OK? Understanding Britain’s Mental Health Emergency’, which explores the mental health crisis in Britain and its particular impact on young people, inspired by Stacey’s two most recent documentaries on mental health.

In the tour show Stacey will open up the conversation about mental health in young people and challenge the stigma and stereotypes around it. Having worked in collaboration with mental health experts and charities, she will responsibly share stories of young people in the UK directly affected by mental health issues.

The show will shine a light on life on the mental health frontline and give a voice to young people who are living with mental health conditions across the spectrum.

Stacey will also touch on related, broader topics which she has tackled in her documentaries – poverty, addiction, identity, the pressures of social media – and look back on the stand-out moments and interactions from her wide-reaching career.

Audiences will also get a chance to ask Stacey the questions; this is an opportunity not to be missed. 

The documentary host was due to hold a version of the show show in town on February 6 this year, but it was cancelled due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 at the time. 

The promoter said: "We’re very sorry to inform you that our ‘In Conversation with Stacey Dooley’ tour has been postponed. This is due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19."

"We ask for your patience as we work with venues to reschedule the tour dates; all ticket holders will be contacted as soon as we have more information and offered a refund if they are not able to attend the new date."
