Lacey Turner is set to return to EastEnders in the New Year to reprise her role as Stacey Branning.
The actress was last seen on Albert Square back in 2010, but will be seen making a sensational return in what bosses have promised will be a hugely exciting comeback.
She said in a statement:
“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.”
The show’s executive producer added:
“Stacey is one of EastEnders’ best-loved characters, played by one of television’s finest actors and I am tremendously excited that Lacey has decided to return home to Walford.
“Stacey’s last time on the Square was iconic. But that was just the first act. There is so much more to come for Stacey – and her return will send ripples of drama through the Square.”
