Lacey, 32, who gave birth to her second child in February, took to her Instagram stories to address her alter-ego’s departure.
She reposted the exit video from EastEnders’ Instagram account and wrote alongside it with a love heart: “Later Stacey Slater, see you sometime soon.”
Stacey shared a tearful goodbye with her kids and told them: “I’m always with you, in here. Be good for Nanny Jean okay, you do as you’re told, ’cause Mummy’s got to go away for a little bit.”
Evil Ruby and husband Martin watched on as Stacey would tell mum Jean she loved her, before making the dreaded walk to the police station.
Stacey was sentenced to a year in jail, but would only serve six months if she turned herself in.
The cleaner will do jail time for assaulting Ruby Allen and causing her to have a miscarriage.
Viewers know Stacey did no such thing, but Ruby outplayed her and Stacey was sent to prison.
Lacey made her comeback to EastEnders in September 2020, but subsequently she announced that she was pregnant with her second child and would be taking maternity leave.
The star had two heartbreaking miscarriages before conceiving her first daughter Dusty, who they welcomed into the world in July 2019.
“It took so long with Dusty,” she told OK! Magazine. “But now they’re coming along like buses!
“After the heartbreak we went through, it’s a miracle to fall pregnant so quickly.”
In February, Lacey and her husband Matt Kay welcomed their baby boy Trilby.
