A source told The Sun newspaper: "Stacey's name was in the frame for 'Strictly' last year but she didn't want to quarantine away from her kids. The pandemic meant she wanted to be at home as much as possible to home-school her eldest two boys and because her youngest Rex was still a baby."
The insider added: "Now things are on the roadmap to getting back to normal, Stacey is much more open to the idea of making the serious commitment which Strictly requires."
Stacey, who is engaged to fellow TV star Joe Swash, is also set to front 'Sort Your Life Out' – a new BBC series which will follow families aiming to declutter their homes with the network are reportedly looking to tempt her away from rival channel ITV and take her TV career to "the next level".
The source said: "The Beeb sees huge potential in Stacey and are keen to lure her away from ITV for good. With the offer of Strictly on the cards they are promising her the opportunity to take her TV career to the next level."
