Lacey Turner has remained loyal to EastEnders in her role as Stacey Slater, but she also has a not-so secret connection to Hollyoaks.

The actress isn't the only soap star in her family as her younger sister Daisy Luckett had a stint in the Channel 4 show back in 2011.

And it seems their younger sibling also caught the acting bug, as their sister Lily Harvey followed in Lacey's footsteps to Albert Square for a brief appearance.

Lacey, who recently announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Matt Kay, initially auditioned for a role as Demi Miller on EastEnders before bagging her iconic Stacey Slater role back in 2004.

Cut to a few years later and Daisy was enjoying her first scenes as Jenny Houston on Hollyoaks, in a six month stint.

The 30 year old Turner sister, who got married in 2018 and has a daughter Tallulah with husband Christian, however, kept her link to Lacey a secret: "Every time I went to an audition, I never mentioned Lacey, because that would make me sound stupid.

"I am used to Lacey being in a soap so people are bound to ask about her. But this is something I want to do on my own," she told Liverpool Echo back in 2011.

Unfortunately for Daisy, her character Jenny met a gruesome end as one of the victims of the serial killer Silas Blisett on the soap's long-running storyline.

Since her short-lived sting on Hollyoaks, Daisy hasn't acted in anything else but their youngest sibling, Lily joined Lacey on EastEnders.

Technically when Lily, now 13, joined the BBC soap, it was during Lacey's four-year break shortly after she fled Walford when she was revealed as Archie Mitchell’s killer on Christmas Day in 2010.

Lily played Shenice Quinn back in 2011, the daughter of Kat Slater's old friend from Spain Martina. Shenice then moved in with Kat and Alfie with her last appearance being in 2012 when she returned back to Spain with her mum.

Since her EastEnders gig, Lily has grown up and changed a lot since, with Lacey posting a sweet holiday snap of her with her mum and nan and daughter Dusty.

Daisy said of her family's acting roots: "All three of us do it. Lacey and I acted as kids. Our mum, Bev, let us do everything – singing, dancing and acting.

"I was at home with my mum and sisters when I got the call to say I’d got the part. Lacey said if I need her, she is there.

"I suppose there is a bit of pressure because she is very good at what she does. She has done it for years and I am just starting out."
