Stacey Dooley, 33, was joined by EastEnders stars Kellie Bright and Danny Dyer for a behind the scenes special on the popular BBC soap. The trio discussed classic scenes, personal experiences and also how documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux had inspired a certain performance.
Never heard of him
Stacey is known for her programmes on hard-hitting topics, as is the latter.
Kellie brought up Louis as she described how his film on alcoholics had shaped her performance.
The former Strictly Come Dancing winner playfully dismissed his string of accolades, as she joked “never heard of him”.
Stacey said to Kellie of her performance as alcoholic Linda: “You were so believable.”

Kellie replied: “I tell you what, I watched Louis Theroux’s….”
Stacey quickly interjected: “Never heard of him!”
Danny Dyer jokingly added: “Don’t you lace your boots, Dooley. Don’t you worry about that.”
Kellie continued: “He did uh…I can’t remember what it is with alcoholics….”
Stacey interrupted sarcastically: “They are quite unmemorable a lot of them.”
Kellie agreed: “I can’t even remember what it’s called Stace.”
Danny added: “She only watched it for research!”
Louis previously congratulated Stacey on winning the 2018 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The criticism of the star came after she announced last year her new project would be hosting makeup competition Glow Up: Britain’s Next Makeup Star.
Some of her fans replied to the announcement by asking why she had decided to step away from investigative journalism.
One wrote: “Ahhh stace no, don’t sell out like this!!! Don’t forget your roots of investigative journalism.”
