Pregnant Lacey, who just returned to the set of EastEnders following her maternity leave, is rumoured to be taking an extended break from Albert Square.
A source told the Daily Star On Sunday: “Lacey will be taking a break.
“The top bosses agreed to give her some time off the show.”
Although her temporary exit has not been confirmed, the soap continues to make adjustments to production procedures due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent filming and social distancing restrictions.
Lacey’s first episode since August 2019 airs on TV tonight.
EastEnders continues on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays on BBC One.
