EastEnders' Lacey Turner picks up groceries as it's revealed she's taking another break from the soap

EASTENDERS star Lacey Turner looked stylish as ever as she picked up some groceries after announcing she's taking a lengthy break from the soap.

The actress – who is most well known for her playing the role of Stacey Fowler in the popular BBC soap – is finally back on our screens this week since giving birth to her daughter Dusty last year.

Earlier today the soap star, 32, opted for a casual outfit as she went out to run some errands.

Lacey looked like a fashion icon as she picked up some refreshments at a petrol station in some frayed bootcut jeans, an oversized black shirt and matching flip flops.

She completed her look with some retro sunglasses, her hair styled into a busy bun and added a pop of colour to her look with a bright red hair tie.

The Our Girl star made sure she kept to current government guidelines and had light blue face mask at hand, ready to put on before heading into the shops.

Despite her highly anticipated return considering she fled Walford after she decided to hit Phil Mitchell over the head, the Daily Star have reported that Lacey won't be on our screens for long.

A source said: "Lacey will be taking a break. The top bosses agreed to give her some time off from the show.

"This is a great opportunity for the writers to come up with something big for Lacey to get her teeth into."

Although the source did add that Lacey has no plans to make this a permanent decision.

Since Stacey has been awol, she split up with husband Martin Fowler and moved on with a man called Jerome – while Martin has moved on with her best friend Ruby Allen.

Stacey's return is set to put the cat amongst the pigeons – and now Lacey has revealed what she wants.

She said: "I think for Stacey, she just felt angry towards Ruby – that's supposed to be her best friend.

"She's really sad about her and Martin. In her heart of hearts she does still love him and I think it's quite hard her to watch them together.

"But in true Stacey style, she will just put on a front and pretend she doesn't care.

"She thinks that it's not that serious and that he's there for the money. She definitely doesn't think it's going to last forever.

"It's a bit of a joke to her and she would take Martin back tomorrow if he said he wanted to come back.

"I think she's still very much in love with him. Which is so sad. Poor Stacey!"

But while she wants Martin back – Stacey is just too bitter to consider a reunion with former pal Ruby.

"I don't know, this is a pretty bad one," Lacey added.

"That's like the number one rule for being best friends – you don't take your best friend's husband! So I don't know.

"It's very sour at the moment and it looks like it's going to stay sour for quite a long time. It's become quite bitter and I can't really see a way out."
