Strictly Come Dancing stars Stacey Dooley and Joe Sugg are set to become a presenting duo after their success on the show.
Stacey, 31, who won the coveted Glitterball trophy at the weekend, has worked as an investigative journalist for BBC Three for 10 years, and now looks set to make the jump to BBC1 after winning the nation's hearts on Strictly.
She and Joe, 27, will both host this year's New Year's Eve concert on the Beeb.
The one-off special will feature a performance from Madness among others, and will be filmed at Central Hall in Westminster on December 31.
Stacey, who is the subject of a fan theory that claims her Strictly win was a 'fix', said of her upcoming gig: "Presenting with Joe Sugg at the New Year’s Eve concert with Madness is the perfect ending to such a great year.
"There’s a couple of things in the pipeline," she continued, according to The Sun.
"I’m doing a couple of docs and I’m doing a tour after January and then I’ve got a couple of docs in America which I’m really excited about and there’s loads of things we are talking about. It’s really nice."
It's also been reported that Stacey could replace Alex Jones as The One Show presenter next year when she goes on maternity leave.
BBC Three chief Damian Kavanagh has previously stated that Stacey's talent has been "growing for some time", after she first appeared on the channel in the 2008 documentary Blood, Sweat and T-shirts, which saw Stacey travel to India to learn about sweatshops.
Stacey and her dance partner Kevin Clifton were crowned winners of Strictly Come Dancing 2018 last Sunday (16 December), beating out other finalists Joe, Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts.
