Stacey has also made half a million in the last 12 months through her company Key Map Entertainments in accounts published to Companies House.
Stacey has collaborated on fashion projects with Primark and In The Style and partnered with Amazon for her own range on their Handmade Products Store.
In 2016, she succeeded Laura Whitmore as co-host of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Extra Camp alongside Vicky, her now-husband Joe, and Chris Ramsey that year, but did not return for the 2017 instalment.
Stacey became a regular panellist on ITV2’s Celebrity Juice in 2019 for one series, and in 2021, began hosting home-decluttering series Sort Your Life Out, for the BBC.
The TV personality was scouted out by the Hollywood star’s firm following the success of her own BBC decluttering series, Sort Your Life Out.
Stacey is set to host upcoming Channel 4 series Bricking It, which will be Reese’s production company Hello Sunshine’s first ever UK show.

Bricking It will see Stacey help homeowners who have been let down by poor builders and give them cost-effective tips to help them do the jobs themselves.
Stacey, who often shows off her crafty creations on social media, will also learn new tasks including bricklaying and plastering as she takes on DIY challenges.
She took to her Instagram Stories in January to share the exciting news, saying she will start filming for Bricking It in the summer, after taking a break from work to welcome her fifth child.
In a video, she said: ‘So for a little while I’ve been talking to Channel 4 and a production company called Hello Sunshine, which was founded by Reese Witherspoon.
‘She created it to champion women on TV and she’s just incredible at building women up and putting them at the forefront.
‘They asked me if I wanted to make a show with them, and I was like “hell yeah, I’ll make a show with Reese Witherspoon’s production company!”. They are words I never thought I’d say!
‘So in the summer, we are going to start filming a show called Bricking It and it’s basically going to be a show where we go in and help people who have been done over by bad builders, run out of funding and can’t finish the project to get them where they need to be.’

She added: ‘And I get to learn new skills along the way, so I’m going to learn things that I have always wanted to do but I’m not confident with, so like roofing, brick-laying, proper DIY. I can’t wait, I’m so excited.’
A TV insider told The Sun that the new hosting job could potentially lead to other exciting work opportunities in America.
They said: ‘This is huge news for Stacey and proof of her growing status in the TV world.
‘To be on Reece’s radar is mightily impressive and her company was adamant they wanted Stacey to front the new show.’
