EastEnders’ Lacey Turner confirms return after maternity leave

by pregnancy journalist

Stacey Slater is set to return to Albert Square soon with Lacey Turner heading back to EastEnders after her maternity leave.

The popular character was sent to prison for a crime she didn’t commit while the actress was off after giving birth to her second child, a baby boy named Trilby Fox.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Lacey said that she will be going back to work full time.

“Yes, but I’m really lucky because although with a big storyline you can be working like any full-time job, there are a lot of times when I’m not needed so it works out perfectly,” she said.

“I also live not too far away from the studios so that always makes things easier and I can pop home between filming. I’m always home for bath and bedtime, too.”

Lacey, who also has daughter Dusty with husband Matt Kay, added that Trilby will be staying at home with Matt.

“I like that Trilby and Matt will get to be together while I’m in work as I can just concentrate on that and not have to worry about a thing,” she added.

“It’s a privileged position to be in. I’m very lucky.”

The 33-year-old added that she hasn’t ruled out expanding her family once again.

“I’d still have four,” she said.

“I would be happy with three and I’d be happy with two if this was our lot. We’re so lucky to have the two we’ve got, but I would definitely have more.

“It definitely won’t be any time soon, though – we have our hands full at the moment!”
