STACEY Dooley is best-known for her hard-hitting documentaries tackling topics such as Isis, gun violence and sex offenders.

And she recently gained a new audience by winning Strictly Come Dancing. But now Dooley’s branching out in a new direction by hosting BBC Three show Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star. L’Oreal’s Val Garland and Mac’s Dominic Skinner are judges. Dooley said: “Val and Dominic were a scream to work with. Can’t wait to show it to you all.”

The elimination series will see 10 contestants live and work together as they compete to win a contract assisting top make-up artists. Garland is global make-up director for L’Oreal Paris and has worked with the likes of Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner, Lady Gaga and Alexander McQueen.

Skinner has worked in genres including theatre, ballet, film and TV. Guest judges from the world of fashion and film will also appear although no names have been revealed as yet.

The series will air later this year and follows in the footsteps of similar shows such as BBC Two’s The Great British Sewing Bee and The Great Pottery Throw Down.
