EastEnders' Lacey Turner and James Bye reunite off-screen for playdate

EastEnders’ Lacey Turner and James Bye have proved they’re best friends, on and off the square.

And it looks like they’re making sure their kids end up just as close.

Lacey, who plays Stacey Fowler on the BBC soap, shared a snap of the moment her newborn daughter Dusty met James’ son Hugo for the first time.

Alongside the adorable moment – posted on her Instagram story – the 31-year-old added the sticker: ‘Did we just become best friends?’

Honestly, we may as well give up now as this is the cutest thing on social media.

The actress welcomed baby Dusty with husband Matt Kay back in July, two years after they tied the knot.


While James – who stars as Martin Fowler – introduced third child Hugo with wife Victoria back in February.

The pair have been missing from our screens recently, after their characters were forced to go on the run when Stacey whacked Phil over the head in the Arches.

Which isn’t ideal.

It was recently revealed Lacey will be making a brief comeback, with onscreen mum Jean’s cancer treatment storyline coming to the fore once more.

And it seems James could be returning sooner than planned, when Martin’s daughter Bex attempts to take her own life in upcoming episodes.

The youngster has been under a lot of pressure over the last few months, with her exams and university future on the line.

Things come to a head when mum Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) throws her a going away party ahead of her Oxford stint, with Bex leaving the party early after feeling overwhelmed once more.

Unbeknown to anyone at the bash, she plans to take her own life, with Sonia finding her unresponsive in bed the next day.

However, with the nurse blaming herself for what happened, and the family falling apart will Martin return to Walford?
