Childhood and Early Years
Stacey Dooley was born on March 9, 1987, in Luton, Bedfordshire, England. Stacey Jaclyn Dooley was her full name when she was born. She will be 34 years old in 2020, and her zodiac sign is Pisces. Diane, her mother, left the family when she was just two and a half years old. Her relationship with her father was strained, and she rarely saw him at family gatherings or weddings.
Furthermore, Stacey’s father was an Irish immigrant who abandoned the family when she was two years old. When she was 13, he attempted to reconnect with her, but it did not go well. Her father died while she was in her twenties, according to sources, and the two never reconciled their differences.
She also has a younger stepsister from her mother’s marriage to Norman, who is her partner. Stacey went to Stopsley High School, but dropped out at the age of 15 in order to find jobs. She has also sold perfumes and cosmetics at a salon in Bramingham and later at ‘Luton Airport.’
Making international films is her greatest joy in life. She addresses Orla Guerin, a reporter for the BBC, as “queen.” Because of her Orla Guerin reporting style, she struggles to call herself a journalist.
