Happy anniversary to Lacey Turner and her husband Matt Kay! The couple are celebrating their first wedding anniversary, and to mark the special occasion, the EastEnders star took to Instagram to post a sweet picture of her partner. "Happy one year my love! Easiest decision I've ever made," the actress wrote in the caption. Lacey, who is famous for playing the feisty Stacey Fowler in the BBC soap, tied the knot with her childhood sweetheart at an exclusive resort in the north of Ibiza in September 2017.

That would definitely be a VERY easy decision. He's stunning."

The brunette beauty is one of the most celebrated actresses in soap, having won an impressive 31 prizes over the years - including six British Soap awards and four NTA gongs. However, Lacey isn't the only famous one in her family since soaps fans will recognise her younger sister, Daisy, from Hollyoaks, in which she played Jenny Houston for six months. The 28-year-old's character was famously murdered by serial killer Silas Blissett in 2011. Their youngest sister Lily Harvey has also landed a role on the small screen; she played Shenice, the daughter of Kat Slater's friend Martina.
