Back then she had an attitude and she was very feisty but we can't forget how adorable she was with her boyfriend Bradley Branning.Over the years she's cheated on Bradders with his dad Max Branning (we will never forget that infamous Christmas Day episode it all came out), she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she killed her rapist Archie Mitchell and she after giving birth to her son Arthur she developed postpartum psychosis. It's safe to say she's been through a lot but she's a Slater (now a Fowler) which means she's a fighter.

Lacey and Matt got on a gondola in Venice. Speaking about the moment her partner got down on one knee, the EastEnders star told OK! magazine: "We were on our gondola trip and I was just looking around and suddenly all of these rose petals were floating down from the bridge above."I said yes straight away, of course! Although as we cuddled afterwards the gondola tipped a bit and we nearly fell off! "I was sobbing after Matt proposed – it was such a shock."N'aww.
