It feels like yesterday since the EastEnders star revealed her baby Dusty to the world, and now she's back to work. 

The 31-year-old actress who stars as Stacey Slater has returned to Albert Square to film 'minor scenes' where she will confront Phil Mitchell played by Steve McFadden, just weeks after Dusty was born. 

"Lacey was back very briefly to film a couple of scenes as part of her ongoing storyline involving the Mitchell family." an insider told The Sun

Although the soap star made a return as Stacey Slater last week, a full-term reappearance in EastEnders is yet to be confirmed for Lacey. 

Lacey revealed she had given birth to baby Dusty on Instagram where she shared beautiful pictures of Dusty in a photoshoot with Ok! magazine.

She gave birth to her baby daughter on July 12. 

The star wrote: "💜Our Dusty Doo💜 @ok_mag thank you for the beautiful photos"
