Lacey Turner, who was joining Loose Women via videocall, continued to freeze on screen as Carol McGiffin grilled her on what lies in store for Stacey Slater as she returns to Albert Square
Lacey, who plays Stacey Slater on the iconic BBC One soap, joined the Loose Women panelists via videocall to discuss her return to the soap after a six-month hiatus.
The 33-year-old soap star is now finally back on-screens after taking some time off following the arrival of her baby son, Trilby, who she shares with husband Matt Kay.
Although the panelists were excited about chatting to the soap star about her beautiful family and her return to EastEnders, they were left disappointed when the interview was cut short after just two minutes.
Lacey, who was joining the chat via videocall, continued to freeze on screen as Carol McGiffin grilled her on what lies in store for Stacey Slater as she returns to Albert Square.
Loose Women viewers were left in hysterics as Stacey’s face froze on camera.
To add to hilarity, the producers began to play the EastEnders theme tune to add some more comic relief around the technical disaster.
Taking to Twitter, Loose Women viewers joined in on the fun.
“Lacey’s face when the screen froze. OMG, it’s just so realistic. So true to life,” one fan quipped.
“Classic zoom calls. We’ve all been there,” another agreed.
“I was looking forward to this Lacey chat all week tbh. So disappointing,” someone else complained.
Meanwhile, a fourth fan tweeted: “Disaster in the Loose Women house today. Lacey is such a sweetheart.”
On the show, Stacey is currently serving time for something she didn’t do, with now-deleted footage showing that Ruby Allen slipped down the stairs rather than being pushed.
It comes as Ruby actress, Louisa Lytton, is going on maternity leave.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30PM on ITV.
