Strictly's Stacey Dooley calls boyfriend 'useless' and moans he leaves their house a mess after reports relationship is under strain

The star – who won the 2018 series – opens up about her relationship with Sam Tucknott on tonight's The Russell Howard Hour.

Discussing her job travelling the world to film documentaries for the BBC, Stacey said: "My boyfriend never goes with me, he would be useless.

"I sort of get a bit annoyed when he’s not crying and sliding down the walls when I leave for these places. I’m like, ‘Are you not scared I’m never going to return?

"Are you not scared you’re going to lose the love of your life?’ and he’s like, ‘You’ll be fine, you’ll be back in two weeks moaning about the state of the flat’.

"And he’s right, that’s exactly what I do! I say to myself before I put the key in the door, ‘Don’t kick off about the state of the flat because it doesn’t matter’, I go in, the first thing I say is, ‘Have you been busy at work? Is that why the dishes are in the sink?’, I’m all passive aggressive!

"He will be like, ‘don’t start’ and that’s fair, I think, ‘I can’t be arsed, I’m too jet lagged, we’ll resume this tomorrow!’.

"He contributes in other ways…not like that!"

Her comments come after The Sun revealed the couple's relationship was under strain while she was away with the Strictly Come Dancing Tour earlier this year.

She has been dating Sam, a personal trainer, for seven years but they have struggled to spend time together because of her recent commitments.

A tour insider said: “Stacey has been telling anyone who will listen backstage that this tour is putting pressure on her relationship.

“She has already blamed the six months she spent on Strictly for putting a massive strain on her love life but now, being away from home has made things even more difficult.

“Sam has been supportive of her doing the show but has missed spending so much time with her.

“She and Sam used to train together most days, but now she is always dancing. He’s not sure how much more distance their relationship can stand.”
