Lacey Turner, known for her role as Stacey Fowler in EastEnders, is set to take a short maternity break, which means her alter ego will be away from Walford for a while. Upcoming scenes reveal that Stacey and the rest of the Slaters will face a legal battle against Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) for the custody of a young toddler, Arthur (Hunter Bell). This could set the stage for Stacey’s “dramatic” and “explosive” departure from the sudser.
EastEnders Spoilers– Stacey’s Had It Rough Lately
Things have been rough for Stacey recently. She discovered that her mother Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) is suffering from stage three ovarian cancer. Then she had to face her brother, Sean Slater (Robert Kazinsky), whom she hasn’t seen for a long time. Lately, she found out that Kush, the father of her son Arthur, is having an affair with her cousin Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).
In the recent episodes of EastEnders, viewers have witnessed the growing rift Stacey’s husband, Martin Fowler (James Bye) and Kush after the former’s daughter, Bex Fowler (Jasmine Armfield) confessed her love to the latter.
Even though Bex returned home safely, her father blamed her best friend Kush for her disappearance. Martin also denied Kush access to his son, preparing all of them for a joint custody battle for the child.

EastEnders Spoilers– A Custody Battle Is Brewing
Stacey will find out about Kush’s plans to take her to court over Arthur’s custody and will be furious at her cousin Kat for keeping quiet. With Martin’s growing hatred for Kush and Kush’s plans to take her son, Stacey may decide to leave Walford with Arthur without telling anyone about her plan.
