Now with four children herself, the star’s intrusive thoughts have extended onto her family as well.
“Bedtime is when I get most anxious because I have time to contemplate,” Stacey said. “I’m also more likely to question my mortality and catastrophise if I’ve seen or heard something upsetting about somebody. And, let’s be honest, fear is everywhere. Every day a horrendous thing happens: stabbings, abductions, rape, cancer, failings in the NHS, paedophiles… the list is endless.”
One thing that has helped Stacey personally is her home organisation and cleaning tips, that she now shares with millions of others not only on her social media accounts, but through her new show too.
The star even released a book, titled Tap to Tidy: Organising, Crafting & Creating Happiness in a Messy World, that relayed all of her most helpful and inspiring tips and tricks.
Stacey said: “I think that exercise, cooking, crafting, all of these things are just different forms of meditation. Now I recognise a pattern, and have been able to see my triggers. Before bed I try and read the most brain-hurty, intelligent book I can. One that’s so hard to read no other thoughts can creep into my mind. After 10 pages I’m usually exhausted and fall asleep.
