Stacey Dooley, 32, was pictured in London today after taking to Instagram earlier in the week to respond to criticism about her latest pictures.
The documentary film maker, who won the most recent series of Strictly Come Dancing with her professional dancing partner Kevin Clifton, 36, was replying to comments made about her recent trip to Africa.
After posting several pictures on social media, in view of her 728,000 Instagram followers, the television personality was confronted with a slew of negative comments.
Stacey responded to the criticism by saying: “I understand the wider conversation that people want to have, and I understand that some are saying they feel it’s a tired narrative… I get that.
“What is not okay is people making out like we were somehow sinister in our approach.”
She concluded: “Ultimately, the main priority is that the people on the ground felt happy with my behaviour.
Im still in contact with the families and the health workers and the fixers.
“I’ve taken on board what people are saying.”
Earlier this afternoon, Stacey was photographed outside the BBC studio in the London sunshine.
The red-haired star styled her hair in a low ponytail and wore a casual ensemble for her outing.
She teamed a simple white top with a pair of baggy jeans which were folded up at the ankles to reveal summery sandals.
Wearing a pair of dark sunglasses, she finished off her laid-back look with gold-hooped earrings, matching gold bracelets and carried a designer handbag over her arm.
