EastEnder’s star Lacey Turner was struck down yesterday by what is thought to be the flu.

The only reason anyone really cares is because her character, bi-polar Stacey Slater, was set to be a prominent feature in tonight’s live episode.

A source told The Mirror that, “She was croaking at cast members, saying ‘I can’t speak’.

Yesterday’s final dress rehearsal had to be cancelled due to Turner’s illness which may force the show’s writers to rework the storylines. The live episode is to celebrate the 25th anniversary and it’s just a shame that Stacey may not appear.

In the episode viewers will finally find out the identity of Archie Mitchell’s killer and as Stacey was also a suspect, everyone’s wondering how this will effect the outcome.

Tune in tonight to find out who the killer is, catch it on BBC 1 at 8pm.
