Following the axing of her on-screen dad, Charlie Slater, along with five other central characters, it has been announced today that Stacey will also be leaving Eastenders.

Lacey Turner, who plays the character, has revealed that she plans to pursue a career in films, telling The Sun; “I’ll miss everyone in Albert Square, but the time has come to try something different?.

She will be followed out of the soap’s perpetually revolving door by her mum, Jean Slater, but of the chopped characters only Stacey will definitely be left open for a potential return in the future.

Bryan Kirkwood, the new producer responsible for the recent cull of actors, said; “We’ll be very sad to see Lacey Turner leave the show. Lacey is one of the best young actresses on TV at the moment and the fact that she’s won 28 awards in the last five years is testament to this?.
