EastEnders star Lacey Turner pictured with rarely seen soap star sisters

EastEnders actress Lacey Turner has shared a photo of her rarely seen mum and two sisters - who are actually soap stars themselves.

Lacey, who plays Stacey Slater in the hit BBC One soap, took to her social media to share her talented family with her followers.

She posed next to proud mum Bev and sisters Daisy Turner and Lily Harvey, who have both been actresses themselves.

Lacey, 34, shared the photo to wish her mum a happy birthday and looked stunning in a flowing black dress.

The EastEnders star kept her hair swept back in a neat bun and posed alongside her mum who looked glam in a long floral dress.

Sisters Lily and Daisy posed together in the rare family snap, who both made their TV debuts in 2010.

Soaps run in their genes as Daisy joined Hollyoaks when she was 20.

Daisy, 32, admitted she found it hard starting out in acting when Lacey was already a well-established soap hit.

“All three of us do it. Lacey and I acted as kids. Our mum, Bev, let us do everything – singing, dancing and acting," she told the Liverpool Echo.

“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.”

Her time on the soap didn't last long as Jenny was attacked by serial killer Silas.

She has not appeared in any other soaps since, but did star in a short film called You Got The Time?

Youngest sister Lily bagged a spot on EastEnders just before Lacey said goodbye to Albert Square in December 2010.

Aged just nine, she appeared as Shenice Quinn – the daughter of Kat Slater’s friend Martine.

Confessing at the time, executive producer Bryan Kirkwood said: "Whether by accident or design I sat down and watched a [video] 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.”

The young actress appeared in the soap until August 2011 as a guest and joined as a full time member up until 2012.

Lily, 23, has kept away from soap life since and doesn't appear to be doing any acting work.
