Lacey Turner does not mind portraying gay characters, even if it means she has to kiss another woman

Lacey Turner is happy to play lesbian characters.

The former 'EastEnders' actress portrays a gay witch named Stella in new ITV2 series 'Switch', and she admits she has no problem with the change in sexuality and does not find kissing a girl difficult.

She said: "I've never played a lesbian before but I gave it my best shot and it was fine.

"No different to playing a straight character, really - and that includes the kissing scenes. I mean, a pair of lips is a pair of lips. Although obviously women don't have stubble."

Lacey continues to be best known for the character of Stacey in 'EastEnders' and she admits there is a possibility she would go back to the soap one day.

She told SoapLife magazine: "Would I ever go back? Never say never, but I'm so enjoying trying out different things. I'm also enjoying working on projects like 'Switch' that are fun.

"Playing a character like Stacey who had such intense and dramatic storylines was quite draining. I had to cry so much as Stacey that I found it hard to cry in real life."
