EastEnders’ Lacey Turner seen ‘back at soap studios’ for first time since giving birth to daughter Dusty

EastEnders star Lacey Turner has reportedly returned to the soap’s set for the first time since leaving to give birth to her daughter Dusty.

The 32 year old mum of one was snapped smiling while leaning out of the window of her stationary black Land Rover Discovery car as she reached out to gain access to the BBC studio in Borehamwood in Hertfordshire, where the soap is filmed.

Lacey was all smiles as she wore her long, brunette locks down and had a grey t-shirt on and a bright pink scrunchie hairband around her wrist in photos obtained by The Sun.

Soap star Lacey, who plays Stacey Slater on EastEnders, was seen chatting to a security guard as she leaned out to get her security pass to gain access to the studio.

Lacey’s return to the set comes after she went on maternity leave to give birth to her adorable daughter Dusty.

The actress’ comeback to the soap is sure to be a dramatic one as her character left in a hurry last year after hitting Albert Square’s bad boy Phil Mitchell around the head with a a wrench as he was embroiled in a row with her husband Martin Fowler and sister Kat Slater.

The blow to Phil’s head caused him to be hospitalised and led to Stacey and her kids, minus son Arthur who is staying with his dad Kush Kazemi, fleeing from Albert Square over fears Phil would seek revenge.

Since Stacey’s exit, she and Martin have split and Stacey has moved on with a new man.

Lacey’s return comes just under a year after she gave birth to a baby girl with husband Matt Kay.

Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine about her daughter’s birth, Lacey said: “I had the most amazing birth and I feel lucky to be able to say that. I went into labour at 2am on Friday July 12 and had her at 8.45am, so it was a short labour and it was five days before my actual due date.

“My contractions started coming every four minutes and within an hour they were every two minutes. I had the loveliest midwife, too.

She added: “Dusty was back-to-back and she allowed me to have a water birth, whereas some women are sent for a Caesarean at that point.”

Lacey explained that she had her mum and Matt by her side during her water birth, an experience which was particularly special as it was the same hospital her mother welcomed her sister.

She said: “My mum and Matt were both there and they were so supportive. My mum had a water birth when she had my 17-year-old sister and I watched her give birth, so it was nice for her to see the same thing.

“I was on the same ward at Watford General Hospital as where my mum had given birth – I was in the next room in fact!”
