EASTENDERS actor Lacey Turney has not one but TWO soap star sisters.
Lacey, 32, is best-known as Stacey Slater on EastEnders – a character she has played on-and-off since 2004.

But around the time of her first EastEnders departure in 2010, her two younger sisters – Lily Harvey and Daisy Turner – were making their TV debuts.
Daisy Turner was 20 when she joined rival soap Hollyoaks on Channel 4 in 2011, starring as blonde beauty Jenny Houston.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo at the time, Daisy admitted it was tricky just starting out while Lacey was a well-established soap star.
She said: “All three of us do it. Lacey and I acted as kids. Our mum, Bev, let us do everything – singing, dancing and acting.

Today, it seems Daisy’s pressed pause on her soap acting career[/caption]
“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.”
Sadly, Daisy’s time on the show was short-lived, as Jenny was bumped off by serial killer Silas, as part of a long-running plot line.
Meanwhile, Lily Harvey was just nine when she followed in Lacey’s ‘Enders footsteps[/caption]

Daisy’s now 30, and hasn’t appeared in many programmes since – though she did appear in a short film called You Got The Time?
And just before Lacey said goodbye to Albert Square in December 2010, her younger sister Lily Harvey joined the cast.
The then-nine-year-old, who uses her mother’s last name for acting work, popped up as Shenice Quinn – the daughter of Kat Slater’s pal Martine.
Exec producer Bryan Kirkwood shared that he didn’t even know Lily was related to Lacey.

He confessed at the time: “Whether by accident or design I sat down and watched a tape of a very talented young girl.
“And it was only after we decided that I was told it was Lacey’s sister. So it was complete accident.”
Lily guest starred on EastEnders until August 2011 – when she was asked to join the cast full-time, before finally stepping away in 2012.
Lily is now 21 – and doesn’t appear to be acting anymore, either.
