She's one of the stars of primetime soap EastEnders, but Lacey Turner isn't a fan of the living life in the limelight.

The 27-year-old actress, who plays Stacey Branning in the soap, has said that she did all of her partying when she was younger, and now, enjoys nothing more than being at home.

"I never leave the house [at night] unless it's to eat, and even then I'm back in 45 minutes," she told Fabulous magazine. "I do my furniture, walk my dogs, clear my wardrobe out. Same old, same old."

The Our Girl star spends her spare time restoring old furniture in a built studio in her garden.

"It's not very exciting, it's a very boring life, but I love it," she continued. "If I have a day off, I get excited about clearing out my wardrobe."

For Lacey, her partying days are behind her. "I did all the going out when I was younger. Now I'm just an old granny and sit at home. I can't wait to be 90, so no one will call me boring – they'll just say I'm old.

"Or maybe I'll be partying in Ibiza when I'm 85 – Laurie Brett [Jane Beale] always says I'm going to live my life in reverse."
