Stacey Dooley gets emotional after seeing a baby’s body bag
Stacey Dooley held back tears during her latest BBC documentary, Stacey Dooley: Inside the Undertakers.
The 36-year-old followed a team of undertakers to experience what their daily work life is like, but one heartbreaking moment proved too much for the presenter.
As she accompanied Undertaker Paul as he picked up some bodies from the hospital to bring to the funeral home, Stacey became uneasy as she watched the process.
In upsetting scenes, Stacey was on the verge of tears after seeing a baby being taken.
“Are you OK Stacey?” She was asked as she struggled to watch the process.

“Yes,” she replied, adding: “It’s so hard when the bags are so tiny…”
“Yeah, unfortunately, it’s one of the things you never really get used to either,” the hospital worker explained.
She added: “But we give them all the little care that they deserve as well.”
“It’s obviously not the most comfortable environment,” Stacey stated later as she spoke to the cameras.
