Lacey Turner wears slippers on the 'EastEnders' set whenever her feet aren’t in shot.

The 33-year-old actress' soap secret has been revealed by her co-star and on-screen wife Heather Peace, who plays Eve Unwin, as she told how Lacey - who portrays Stacey Slater in the BBC One soap - likes to give her trotters a break from her character's high-heeled boots when she can.

She said: “Lacey has these high-heeled boots when she’s filming. But if her feet aren’t in shot she’ll be in her slippers.”

Heather has admitted her all-time favourite 'EastEnders' character was the iconic Pat Butcher, who was played by Pam St Clement.

The 46-year-old star added: “It has to be Pat Butcher, I just love her. I thought everything Pam St Clement brought to that role was awesome.

"The matriarchal, strong female roles are something 'EastEnders' does really well, like Peggy and Pat – I love them.”

The former ‘Waterloo Road’ star - who played deputy head Nikki Boston in the school drama - admitted she is happy in 'EastEnders' for the time being, but wouldn't rule out a comeback on the BBC show in the future.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, she added: “I loved playing Nikki and the crowd made the show.

"We were away from home a lot in Glasgow, and we all stayed in the same block of flats – it was like being in halls of residence at uni.

"Now the show is back, there are so many stories they can explore that will be very different from when I was in it. Right now I’m happy to stay in 'EastEnders'.”

Heather made her first 'EastEnders' appearance as Eve in October 2021 after her lawyer character married Stacey in prison out of convenience.
