EastEnders star Lacey Turner opens up about suffering a miscarriage while at work.
The actress — who portrays Stacey Slater in the BBC One soap — recalled the tragic experience in Channel 5 documentary Miscarriage: Our Story.
Lacey, who suffered a miscarriage at seven weeks, said: ‘There’s this whole taboo about not speaking about pregnancy and keeping it a secret until you’re 12 weeks.
‘I went back to work the next day, carried on like nothing had happened, which actually makes me really sad now looking back.
‘I was probably walking around feeling so heartbroken yet nobody would have had a clue.
‘You don’t understand it, you feel completely alone. There isn’t anyone who can help you, there isn’t anyone who can make it better – it’s happened.
‘I think, actually, what we should have done was talk to each other, but because we didn’t, it made both of us really lonely.
‘Had I opened my mouth and asked someone a simple question of: “Have you ever experienced anything like that?”
‘I would have known that actually I would have had a handful of people to speak to, and I wouldn’t have been lonely at all.’
