Here’s the first pictures of Lacey Turner on the EastEnders set as she prepares to return as much-loved character Stacey Branning.

Lacey left EastEnders three years ago, but it was announced late in 2013 that she was making a fulltime return as Stacey, last seen fleeing Albert Square after it was revealed that she was Archie Mitchell’s murderer.

 

After just over three years away from Albert Square, Stacey will arrive back in Walford early next year. Last seen fleeing the country after Janine exposed her for killing Archie Mitchell, Stacey’s return is set to be one to remember.

 

Speaking of returning to EastEnders, Lacey said: “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.”

Lacey will be first seen on EastEnders in February.
