Lacey Turner has called for all of the members of the Slater clan to return to 'EastEnders'
Lacey Turner wants all of the Slaters to return to 'EastEnders'.
The 26-year-old actress - who plays Stacey Branning - returned to the soap earlier this year and would love to see other members of the popular soap family return to Walford to join Stacey, Kat Moon and Big Mo.
She told Inside Soap magazine: "It'd be great if all the other Slaters came back - especially Uncle Charlie. We miss [actor] Derek Martin loads."
There will be a big contingent of Slaters on the loose soon as Kat (Jessie Wallace) gives birth to twins and Lacey - whose character has a young daughter, Lily - is enjoying being surrounded by the new cast members.
She said: "It's really lovely to film. There are loads of kids there now, with Lily, Tommy, and the twins on the way. And there's Big Mo, too - it's a real little family.
"We all work so well together, and we've had some funny stuff where Mo has made me laugh so much."
Lacey also wishes her former on-screen husband Bradley Branning (Charlie Clements) could return, however, his character was killed off in 2010.
She added: "I really wish he could come back. It's weird without him. I loved Stacey and Bradley as a couple.
"I still talk to Charlie Clements, who played Bradley."
