Lacey Turner to return to Eastenders

Lacey Turner has announced that she’ll be returning to Eastenders next year. 

The actress will reprise her role as Stacey Slater when she returns to Albert Square in early 2014, three years after she first left the soap.

As fans of Eastenders will remember Stacey fled the square after being exposed as Archie Mitchell’s murderer with a little help from her former lover Max Branning so there’s no doubt that her return will cause plenty of drama.

Lacey, 25, revealed: ‘I may have left EastEnders over three years ago but the show has always been in my heart, as has Stacey, and she has never really left my side. I am so excited about returning and seeing what the future holds for her. It’s been a while since I set foot in Albert Square and I am looking forward to coming home.’

And that isn’t the only chance you’ll get to see Lacey on your screens next year, she’ll also be returning for a five-part series of ITV’s Our Girl.
