Lucy Speed won’t be back on Eastenders


Lucy Speed has claimed that she doesn’t miss Eastenders and won’t be returning to the show.

Lucy used to play Natalie Evans on the show and was married to the, now deceased, Barry Evans.

“I don’t think I’d like to reprise Natalie,” she told Inside Soap. “I’ve been acting for 27 years so I’m really just used to moving on.

“I do speak to Charlie Brooks [Janine Butcher] a lot and she’s having a great time being back. And Danniella Westbrook [Sam Mitchell] looks like she’s enjoying her return too.”

Speed is currently appearing on ITV’s The Bill, a job which she is still enjoying immensely.

She said: “I’m loving the style of the 9pm show now. We’ve put our hearts and souls into it, and had some great feedback. It’s been nice to take something we’re already familiar with, and make it an even better show.”
