EastEnders: Lacey Turner films Stacey's return - first pictures

EastEnders star Lacey Turner has been pictured filming her return scenes as Stacey Branning.

The actress worked on location yesterday (January 13) with co-star Jessie Wallace, who plays Stacey's cousin Kat Moon.

While full details of the storyline won't be confirmed until nearer the time, it appears that Kat is travelling on a bus when she spots Stacey walking down the street nearby.

Stacey was last seen fleeing the country after Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) exposed her as the killer of Archie Mitchell, so the revelation that she is back in London will no doubt shock Kat and the rest of Albert Square.

Show bosses have also confirmed that there isn't long to wait for Stacey's return as she will be back on screen in February.

Turner, who has been away from EastEnders for three years, announced her return to the programme last month.

Speaking at the time, Turner commented: "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."

EastEnders' executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins 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."

Show chiefs have also cast actor and McBusted popstar Matt Willis in the guest role of Stacey's latest boyfriend Luke.
