Lacey Turner loses voice

Lacey Turner has caused panic on the 'EastEnders' set after falling ill with flu.

Rehearsals for tonight's (19.02.10) live episode were cancelled yesterday after the actress who portrays sexy market stall owner Stacey Slater was sent home from set after she lost her voice and started feeling unwell.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She was croaking at cast members saying, 'I can't speak'.

"Lacey is always such a professional and she doesn't want to do anything to jeopardise the live show."

Executives on the BBC One programme are now in turmoil over whether to rewrite the script for the special episode to ensure Lacey has fewer lines, or whether to use scenes which were pre-recorded in case of an emergency during broadcast.

The 21-year-old actress had previously admitted she was "nervous" about her scenes during the episode - which will reveal which character killed soap baddie Archie Mitchell.

A source from the show added: "Fans will have to tune in to see if she makes it."
