Stacey Dooley isn’t religious from afar and she’s unlikely to start praying anytime soon, but her monastery documentary is a sister act worth watching.

Her conversational, approachable style means she’s excellent at instantly connecting with everyone she meets and asking big questions.

Stacey Dooley: Inside the Convent on BBC1 on Monday followed the presenter as she took a leap of faith to live at St Hilda’s Priory in Whitby for 10 days.
