Viewers stunned as Lacey Turner returns to EastEnders as Martin ENDS his marriage to Stacey with shock revelation

Lacey left to go on maternity leave

Viewers of EastEnders were stunned as Lacey Turner made a shock return to see Martin end his marriage to Stacey.

In tonight's episode of the BBC soap (October 28 2019) Martin went to meet his wife, who hasn't been seen on screen since August.

However, it was far from a happy reunion.

Stacey began questioning her husband over the cuts and bruises on his face, but he didn't want to say anything to his wife.

Things soon got worse between the couple when Martin told Stacey he wanted to end their marriage.

At first Stacey knew there was a reason Martin was behaving strangely, but the stall owner went to desperate lengths to protect Stacey.

In order to get Stacey to believe he really wanted their marriage to end, he told her he had slept with his ex-wife Sonia and wanted to be with her leaving Stacey heartbroken.

Fans were stunned by Martin's lies, and hit out at the soap for such a ridiculous plot saying Martin should have just told Stacey the truth.

Others suggested Stacey would never stay away from her family, even if she believed her marriage was over.

Fans of the show know Stacey left Walford with husband Martin and two of her three children Lily and Hope because she was the one who attacked Phil Mitchell.

Phil's son Ben, who also wanted him out of the picture, came into the Arches after the attack and said he would cover, so he could blame the attack on Arches' mechanic Keanu.

But when Phil survived and Keanu's name was cleared, Ben had no reason to cover for the couple anymore.

Martin returned a couple of weeks ago to support his daughter Bex, who attempted to take her own life.

But when Ben saw him, he told Martin he now worked for him.

His latest threat was aimed at Stacey and the kids and said if he saw Stacey back in Walford, he would throw her and the Slater kids off the bridge.
