BBC EastEnders: Lacey Turner’s life from humble early job to heart-breaking miscarriages


The EastEnders cast are legends, and anyone who says anything on the contrary is wrong. End of discussion.

She played Stacey Slater between 2004-2010, and then from 2014 to now.

She’s had quite the time in Albert Square, but one storyline that stands out is her affair with serial womaniser, Max Branning, played by Jake Wood.

And if you think that wasn’t wild enough, Ms Slater attacked resident hardman, Phil Mitchell, causing her to leave Albert Square for 13 months.

But off-screen, things haven’t been terribly easy for the 33-year-old.

She’s married to her childhood sweetheart, Matt Kay, a barber. Together they have a daughter, Dusty Violet Kay, and a son, Trilby Fox Kay, having had two miscarriages before.

In an exclusive interview with Ok! Magazine she said how she’d felt like her “whole world had fallen to pieces”.

She added how she felt it was her own fault that her pregnancies hadn’t worked out.

“I blamed myself thinking that I’d done something wrong,” she said.

“I’d think, ‘Why me? What did I do?’ But, of course, I hadn’t done anything wrong – it’s all down to chromosomes and luck, really.

“Speaking to other people about it helped me. Women shouldn’t feel ashamed to talk about it as it happens to so many women.”

Ms Turner’s also very grounded when it comes to work

During her four years away from the square she dabbled in a little painting and decorating as well as working an office job.
