Stacey Dooley is loving the Strictly Come Dancing glam squad so much she’s refusing to undo their good work – even it means not washing.
The documentary film maker made the gruesome confession that she hasn’t shampooed her hair since her performance at Blackpool – SIX days ago.
Unapologetic Stacey admitted she was so admiring of her curly locks from the Tower Ballroom show that she’s refused to wash out the style.
On Saturday night Stacey descended from the ceiling of the famous venue to kick off the show with dance partner Kevin Clifton – with her red hair unleashed for the pair’s samba routine.
Almost a week on Stacey is desperately clinging to the voluptuous style, which she admitted is now in dire need of a wash.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show It Takes Two, she said: "That’s why it’s tied back like this, because it’s so dirty. I just loved it so much.
"It stinks. It absolutely stinks," she added.
Partner Kevin added: "It smells of hairspray and bacon."

Stacey also told how anxious she was about opening the show at the famous Blackpool ballroom.
She said: "I never in my life thought I would be in this situation.
"The rock was 12ft-long, the ceilings are sky high. I felt anxious. I was so anxious."

31-year old Stacey is currently the hot favourite to win the dancing competition, with Joe Sugg not far behind her.
Though it was Ashley Roberts and her dance partner Pasha Kovalev who scored the first 40 of the series at the Blackpool Ballroom special last weekend.
