EastEnders star Lacey Turner has predicted that viewers will see a permanent change in Stacey Branning following the loss of her husband Bradley.

The actress's troubled character watched Bradley (Charlie Clements) fall to his death from the roof of the Queen Vic last month while he was being chased by police who were convinced he was Archie Mitchell's killer.

In an interview with the Walford soap's official website, the 21-year-old was asked how she expects Stacey to cope with the bereavement in the long-term after already losing best friend Danielle Jones (Lauren Crace) last year.

Turner replied: "She's had quite an unlucky time really, losing so many people. I think Bradley was the love of her life so I don't think she'll ever be the same without Bradley.

"But I hope that she copes and deals with it as best as she can. I'm sure she will because she's quite a strong character."

On how her pregnant alter ego will handle life as a single mother, Turner added: "I think every time she looks at the baby it's going to bring back memories of her and Bradley so she may struggle in that sense. But overall, I think she'll cope.

"She's got good family around her and she's a strong-minded, tough person who's had to deal with a lot. I think it will be hard but she'll get through it hopefully."

Stacey will feature in a special two-hander episode with Bradley's father Max (Jake Wood) this Friday. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
