EastEnders Lacey Turner has TWO famous sisters who’ve also starred in soaps – but do you recognise them?

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.

“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.

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.
